NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Free Energy Workshop This Week


If you missed the last round of workshops designed to help improve your home’s energy efficiency, you can attend one this week at South High. 

Community Energy Services offers a program that includes this workshop, a home audit with recommendations on the most effective improvement you can make, and follow-up utility use monitoring to let you see how much you have lowered your energy usage.  CES can also recommend contractors and tell you about rebates that may help cover the cost of the improvements you choose to make.

You may be surprised to learn that the most effective improvement are not the most expensive. Air sealing and insulation go a long ways to increase efficiency.

The workshop is free and participants receive free light bulbs and air-sealing  materials.  You can sign up for the program for $30, which easily pays for itself with the home audit (they will install a programmable thermostat and CFL bulbs if you want), recommendations and follow-up.
