Conway Corp offers zero percent interest loans to customers through its Energy Smart program for home improvements like replacing old appliances and installing attic insulation. The loan program, funded by the city of Conway through the American Recovery Act of 2009, is available to Conway Corp customers only.

Loans are available between $500 and $5,500 and are repayable by automatic bank draft. Although there are no income restrictions, a credit report will be executed on the behalf of the applicant to determine eligibility. (Standard energy efficient measures have a loan limit of $3,500. Loan limit for air-conditioning and window replacement is $5,500. HVAC must be 15 SEER minimum.)

Applicants will need a free home energy audit performed by Conway Corp to be eligible for the loan program. To schedule your energy audit or to apply for an Energy Smart loan call 501-450-6000 or email us.

Conway Corp offers free energy audits to residential and small business customers interested in identifying how much energy their homes and offices consume and what measures may be taken to make them more energy efficient. During the audit process, a Conway Corp certified energy professional will perform a walk-through inspection of the home or business using a variety of techniques and equipment to determine its energy-efficiency level.

The inspection will help you understand the efficiency level of your heating and cooling systems, look at how windows and doors seal, inspect insulation levels, show ways to conserve electricity and help identify leaks in the home or business.

When the audit is complete, your energy professional will provide you with an audit report. This analysis will show problems that may, when corrected, save significant amounts of money over time. To qualify for a free, walk-through energy audit, you must be a Conway Corp electric customer and single-family homeowner or small business owner. Renters must have written permission of the property owner to participate.
