  • Schloegel Handyman and Small Step Energy Solutions Partner to Lower Your Energy Costs

Last updated on January 1, 1970

Do you live in Missouri? Did you know that Missouri Gas Energy (MGE) and KCP&L offer rebates of up to $1200 if you add at least one efficiency improvement – such as air sealing, insulation or certain windows – to your home?

MGE and KCP&L participate in a national program that provides homeowners with attractive savings and a healthier, more comfortable home.  This new program builds upon a familiar name, Energy Star.  The Energy Star label, found on appliances from dryers to dishwashers, has gone beyond stand-alone appliances. Home Performance with Energy Star now looks at the house itself as a whole system. The program identifies a range of direct and behind-the-scenes steps that enhance comfort – and save money on energy leaks.

A custom assessment, or energy audit, of your home gives you a roadmap and recommendations for which work will be best suited for your home. Schloegel Design Remodel has partnered with Small Step Energy Solutions (913-708-8004), a certified energy auditing firm with experience auditing hundreds of homes in the Kansas City metro.

Here’s how the program works:

  • Call Small Step Energy Solutions to complete a thorough diagnostic test using infrared cameras on your home. This is the ‘test in’ for baseline of energy usage/leaks in your house today.
  • Small Step will create a thorough report with specific recommendations.
  • You will select one or more improvements and call Schloegel to implement the improvements.
  • Small Step Energy Solutions returns for a final ‘test out,’ which gives data on the energy you’ve saved for now and for the future.
  • Small Step Energy Solutions handles all paperwork for both utilities to help you get your rebate.

*Rebates apply to Missouri customers only; but both sides of the border can save on energy when they call Schloegel and Small Steps.
