The Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute, the Alliance to Save Energy, the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), and NBC Universal’s SCI FI Channel's energy-efficiency campaign offers consumers energy-efficiency low-tech and high-tech money-saving tips, surprising energy facts, and a national contest for a home energy-efficiency makeover. 

As part of the Eureka $mart House Energy-Efficiency Challenge (www.scifi.com/homemakeover)  one U.S. homeowner who enters by the Aug. 31 deadline will win a home energy-efficiency makeover that will make his/her home "smarter."  The winner will be chosen in September and the makeover will be conducted during October’s Energy Awareness Month.  

SCI FI Channel is promoting the campaign on air and online as part of its second season of Eureka, a town of geniuses and their families where the lead characters live in a “Smart House”—the impetus for the overall energy-efficiency home makeover. 

Other partners include the U.S. Department of Energy, the American Gas Association, the Consumer Electronics Association, Whirlpool Corporation, OSRAM Sylvania, The Dow Chemical Company, and CMC Energy Services. 

Based on an energy audit, the grand prize winner could receive the following energy-efficiency makeover improvements of up to $25,000 to create a “smarter” home: 

• Overall energy audit to identify energy problems and document what might be undertaken to make the home more energy-efficient by CMC Energy Services;
• Whirlpool ENERGY STAR-labeled kitchen and laundry appliances;
• Computer and energy-efficient electronics and wiring of the home by Consumer Electronics Association and its member companies;
• Energy-efficient compact fluorescent lighting by OSRAM Sylvania;
• Sealing of all air leaks by The Dow Chemical Company; and
