Westar Energy introduces new program

Westar Energy customers who own a house that is 10 years old or older can now assess its energy efficiency through a new HomeAudit pilot program.

For $100, homeowners can have a professional audit performed that will provide them with a customized energy conservation plan.

Participants are eligible to receive a full rebate on the cost of the audit if they provide receipts showing they implemented at least $100 in improvements recommended in the energy conservation plan.

Whether a resident plans to stay in the home another 10 years or put it on the market, a professional home energy audit can pinpoint measures to take to optimize energy savings and improve comfort.

Additionally, a home energy audit can promote personal safety by identifying carbon monoxide in the home. Professional energy auditors estimate that 10 percent of the audits they perform reveal carbon monoxide issues.

To participate, Westar customers must:

  • Own a single-family home that is 10 years old or older. (Mobile homes and apartments are not eligible to participate.)
  • Have 12 months of continuous electric service at the home being audited.
  • Be a Kansas resident.
  • Not have participated in the Efficiency Kansas program, Westar’s SimpleSavings program, or the Kansas Weatherization Assistance Program.
  • Have a home with two or fewer heating and cooling systems.
  • Agree to pay a $100 co-pay directly to the auditor at the time the audit is performed.
  • Agree to meet with a Westar Energy account manager within 30 days after Westar receives the audit from the auditor.
