Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 06, 2015
Strand Brothers Service Experts (http://www.strandbrothers.com), Austin’s leading heating & air conditioning specialist, has received the 2014 Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Century Club Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy – an award presented to fewer than 200 companies nationwide.
The Century Club Award recognizes companies that have improved the energy efficiency of more than 100 homes in the past year through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program. “This marks the seventh consecutive year we have received this award, meaning that in total more than 700 Austin-area homes are using less energy through this program,” said Strand Brothers Service Experts General Manager, Wayne Harrel.
“The savings for the individual and the whole community are very significant. Depending on the improvements selected, homeowners could save 30% or more on their annual utility bills through this program. Not only are rooms more comfortable, but the emission of green house gases can be dramatically reduced.”
Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®, sponsored locally by Austin Energy, offers homeowners a comprehensive, whole house approach to improving energy efficiency and comfort, while saving money on utility bills and helping to protect the environment. Homeowners receive a free energy analysis (the home must be at least 10 years old) and recommendations to improve energy-efficiency, along with information on rebates and other available offers. Austin Energy inspectors review the recommendations before the work proceeds and quality-check the work when completed to ensure energy savings are realized.
