What Can We Do?

Depending on the results of a home energy audit, homes may receive one or more of the following energy efficiency measures:

Insulation

Adding insulation to the attic, walls and crawl spaces helps reduce energy use and increases comfort.

Sealing Air Leaks

Sealing air leaks will reduce the cold drafts caused by unwanted holes in the home's structure and may improve indoor air quality.

Update Heating Systems

Replacing an inefficient furnace or boiler will conserve energy and money.

Energy Saving Products

Installing water saving faucet aerators and shower heads, and compact fluorescent light bulbs where applicable will reduce your energy needs.  Replacing an old refridgerator with a new ENERGY STAR qualified model will also conserve energy
