Your Check-up, Your Way
Pepco home energy check-ups can help you make easy changes to save energy and money. You can now receive either a no-cost virtual appointment or a no-cost traditional, in-person appointment so you can choose what feels right for you. Both types of check-up appointments are provided at no additional cost to your existing Pepco electric service.
Virtual Home Energy Check-up
Schedule an appointment to meet with an Energy Analyst over a phone call or through video chat (via Microsoft Teams or another approved platform). During your appointment, you’ll:
- Answer questions about your home and describe any comfort issues you might have
- Look at specific items that use energy, like appliances, lighting, and more
- Identify small changes you can make in your home to be more energy efficient
After your appointment, you can get a no-cost kit with energy-saving products—such as ENERGY STAR® certified LED bulbs and more—mailed to you so you can start saving without having to leave home.

The ENERGY STAR Difference*
During your no-cost home energy check-up, an Energy Analyst may install products including ENERGY STAR certified LED bulbs and smart thermostats. Products that have earned the ENERGY STAR deliver exceptional features, while using less energy.
An ENERGY STAR certified light bulb last up to 15 times longer, saves about $55 in electricity costs over its lifetime, and uses about 70-90% less energy than incandescent lighting. They also are durable, versatile, and most are dimmable.
Almost half of the annual energy bill for the average American household goes to heating and cooling- that's more than $900 a year. An ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostat is a Wi-Fi enabled, programmable thermostat that learns your patterns and automatically adjusts your home's temperature to improve comfort. Plus, smart thermostats offer convenience, you can set and change heating and cooling schedules from your smartphone or tablet, no matter where you are.
