What to Expect from REAP Home Survey
A REAP technician will come to your home and provide a FREE REAP home survey and teach you how to use less electric energy by practicing energy efficiency. As part of an home survey a REAP technician will inspect your electric appliances, lighting, heating system, and other electric energy consuming equipment to determine how energy-efficient they are. They'll talk to you about your lifestyle and give you valuable information about energy-efficiency and provide practical suggestions, like lowering the temperature on your thermostat and using energy-saving settings on appliances, to help lower your energy costs. They'll evaluate all the information they gather to help determine how much money you could save on your energy bills.
During the REAP home survey, a REAP technician may install energy-saving measures in your home…at no cost to you! In fact, all REAP services provided are at no cost to eligible customers. The energy saving measures we choose will depend on individual needs and circumstances. But REAP technicians choose items that will make your home the MOST energy efficient.
