The Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC), a research institute of the University of Central Florida, is looking for homes in which to evaluate Florida energy code effectiveness. We are looking for Florida homes ranging in size from 1,500 to 2,300 ft, that were permitted and built between 1984-1986 or from March 1, 2009 through present. A comprehensive energy audit will be performed on participating homes, including house and duct airtightness tests. Funded through the Florida Department of Community Affairs, this work is part of a research project to determine the effectiveness of the energy code.

If your home matches our criteria, you could be a part of an important research project that may influence Florida energy codes. It doesn't matter if you think your utility bills are low, high or average. Again, this is a research project, we are not selling anything.
Complete and return the homeowner agreement [Adobe Acrobat PDF, 141KB] and we will then schedule the energy audit. If you would like to accept the $200 incentive, please also complete a W-9 Form [Adobe Acrobat PDF, 104KB].
