New consumer educational initiative leading to more Home Energy Checkups in North Texas.

“Last year was phenomenal. We had a lot of people interested in our program and our number of checkups has far outperformed our projections,” said Maci McDaniel, executive director of Texas HERO.

The Texas HERO program helped thousands of North Texas homeowners lower their energy consumption by conducting over 300% more ‘Home Energy Checkups’ in 2011. The Texas Home Energy Rating Organization (Texas HERO), is a program established to encourage consumers to get the assistance of a certified home energy auditors to identify energy saving improvements and help them develop a plan for significantly lowering their energy usage.

Texas HERO executive director Maci McDaniel attributes the success to a consumer education initiative with the launch of a consumer website http://www.home-energy-checkup.org.

“Last year was phenomenal. We had a lot of people interested in our program and our number of checkups has far outperformed our projections,” said Maci McDaniel, executive director of Texas HERO.

“The rest of it is the education of the consumer. More people are learning the benefits of hiring one of our certified, unbiased auditors versus someone who’s real goal is to sell you their product. Our home-energy-checkup.org initiative has helped get the word out ,” McDaniel said.

Texas HERO’s certified auditors perform a full-home checkup, determining a home’s energy performance and deficiencies, providing consumers with a list of the potential improvements, estimated costs for repairs, and a clear understanding of the impacts that the changes would make on their consumption and monthly energy bills.

“We’re looking forward to a busy 2012. We’ve already had thousands view our website and consumers are learning the benefits of having a Home Energy Checkup,” McDaniel said.
