 As temperatures continue to drop, NV Energy reminds its customers to schedule their free in-home energy assessment if they haven’t already done so this year. This no-cost appointment will help them save energy and money.

An NV Energy PowerShift energy advisor will visit a customer’s home, apartment or mobile home and provide personalized energy-saving recommendations. During the assessment, the customer’s energy use and billing history will be reviewed. This is followed by a walk-thru of the residence to evaluate the efficiency of appliances along with systems that consume energy.

“Heating and cooling typically accounts for 50 percent of a home’s energy costs. With a free in-home energy assessment by a PowerShift energy advisor, customers can see how and where they’re using energy and identify ways to save money on their monthly bills. It will also help to ensure their heating system is working as efficiently as possible especially during this time of year,” said Pat Egan, Senior Vice President of Customer Operations. “We also want to remind our customers to adjust their thermostats before departing for their holiday travel. It’s even easier with our free Smart Thermostats that let them make adjustments with our convenient mobile app or online portal.”
