With all this talk on global warming, energy scams are a great way for some people to trick the general public. In the name of energy savings, there are people just like you getting ripped off in an ever growing number of ways. Be on alert when dealing with door-to-door salespeople or unsolicited letters or phone callers that promise to save energy and big bucks on your bills.
You could sign up and find that your monthly bill is even higher due to hidden charges such as switching, service, late, and cancellation fees.
Many companies are now offering energy audits, yet have very little building science knowledge or expertise. Be careful and get references from friends, family members, and ask for third party references. A proper energy audit should take between 2 – 4 hours in your home and should most definitely include a blower door test with infrared camera scanning.
As with any industry you must be diligent and do your homework. Always look for reputable well known companies who have many years of experience working in your community. If you can’t find a trustworthy company ask a friend, family member or co-worker to recommend a business who gave them great service. If you still can’t find someone, ask your local utility company or Better Business Bureau for a list of licensed professionals.
Always remember, don’t automatically go with the cheapest price when buying products for your home. Keep in mind that you are not only buying the product that is being offered but you are also buying the service of that company. Will they be there for you when you need them the most? Like the old saying goes, you get what you pay for!
