Homes With Electric Heat

Get Free Upgrades

Energy efficiency improvements save money and increase comfort. If you have electric heat, you may be eligible for a free home energy assessment and free efficiency improvements installed on the spot.

In order to mitigate exposure and spread of COVID-19 and be in compliance with the New York State executive order, we have made some temporary changes to our in-home audit programs. PSEG Long Island is doing its part to help slow and prevent the spread of COVID-19 to all its valued customers and business partners. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this period. At this time in-home audit programs are operating with a temporary blower door suspension.

Home heating and cooling are the largest expenses in a typical home.

Unfortunately, many homeowners don't get what they pay for because of problems such as poor insulation, leaky duct work, drafty windows and inefficient appliances. To make sure you get your money’s worth, we offer Home Performance Direct Install, a unique program for customers who have electric heat. The program is designed to:

  • Help you reduce overall electricity use
  • Save money
  • Improve the health and safety of your home

How does the program work?

A contractor accredited by the Building Performance Institute (BPI) will use a number of tests to evaluate your heating and cooling equipment, insulation levels and air infiltration. The contractor will explain what improvements can be made., including opportunities to improve your home’s insulation, heating and cooling systems, windows, appliances and lighting.

The free comprehensive home assessment includes:

  • Same-day installations of efficiency measures, such as duct sealing in attics or other areas
  • Diagnostic testing to uncover carbon monoxide and/or moisture problems
  • Installation of appropriate energy-saving measures to reduce water heating costs (for customers with electric hot water)
  • Free replacement of incandescent light bulbs with LED bulbs at no cost to you
  • A report that contains comprehensive recommendations for further energy-efficiency measures and information about our available rebates
