Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
Atlanta residential air conditioning repair company Bardi Heating, Cooling and Plumbing recently announced that it is now an authorized provider of the Georgia Power Home Energy Improvement Program. In addition, Bardi is an official partner of Nobis Works, a non-profit in Georgia that provides job training and assistance to persons with disabilities. Bardi provides complimentary pickups of electronics devices on all service calls. The items are then donated to Reworx, Nobis Works’ electronic recycling program, for recycling.
To fulfill the requirements of the Georgia Power Home Energy Improvement Program, Bardi has an employee on staff who holds a certification from the Building Performance Institute (BPI) and is authorized to perform an energy audit on homes in the metro Atlanta area. The audit program is sponsored by Georgia Power and is a full assessment of all electrical appliances and devices in the home to determine energy usage and efficiency. Repairs or upgrades completed by Bardi can reduce energy consumption by 10-30% which then translate into rebates and additional savings provided by Georgia Power.
As an authorized provider, the repairs that Bardi technicians perform will be categorized as part of the Home Energy Improvement Program which qualifies homeowners to receive additional discounts, rebates or savings in exchange for reducing energy consumption and upgrading their home’s technology.
Bardi provides insulating services, solar panel installation, the latest and most efficient home heating and cooling technology, and additional upgrades including digital and programmable thermostats, zoning systems and energy-efficient light bulbs to improve efficiency and reduce both energy consumption and costs.
Alex Bardi, President and CEO of Bardi Heating, Cooling and Plumbing, serves on the board of directors of Nobis Works. Reworx was launched in 2009. The program employs the disabled; 60% of the workforce is comprised of persons with disabilities. Reworx is the only recycler based in Georgia to hold the R2 “Responsible Recycling” designation for electronics recyclers from the EPA and has created 71 new full-time jobs since its first year of operation. Bardi supports Reworx by collecting electronics for donation and recycling on any service call. Tax receipts are provided. In addition, Bardi provides recycling pick-ups on commercial sites and also recycles used or discarded HVACs, duct work and scrap metal.
“These partnerships demonstrate our commitment to our community at large as well as our customers,” said Gresham Ard, Residential General Manager at Bardi. “Energy efficiency is an important and attainable goal for a lot of homeowners here in Atlanta, and we work hard to provide them a range of options to match their budgets and bring their costs down while working to protect and improve the environment at the same time.”
