Save Energy

Make your home more comfortable with an energy assessment and upgrade.

If your home is like the majority of homes in the Baltimore region, it was built over 70 years ago. And chances are even as you read this, your home is leaking energy (and money!). Heat escapes all winter. Cool air slips away all summer. Your money disappears all year long. Start saving! With Retrofit Baltimore, a non-profit program, you can take advantage of a discounted home assessment and a 50% off rebate toward the cost of your home energy upgrade. Don’t spend another season losing energy and money.

I decided to retrofit my home because our heating bills were outrageous and I was tired of wasting energy. Now I am enjoying a definite drop in my energy bills.
