Add Energy Efficiency to Your Tool Box
Are you handy around the house? Put energy-saving improvements on your “to-do” list to save money on energy costs and make your home more comfortable in every season. It doesn’t have to cost a lot. Start with simple no-cost or low-cost steps you can take right away, and then move on to bigger projects. It’s easy with resources from Energize Connecticut.
If you’ve watched home improvement shows and gotten tips on how to save energy, you have probably replaced your incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent or light-emitting diode bulbs. And you may have looked into your attic to check out the insulation and ventilation. You may also be aware that it’s important to seal the air leaks that cause drafts and learned that the best way to identify them is with a blower-door test. Unfortunately, you can’t rent one at the home improvement store.
But there is a solution: Have a home energy checkup through our Home Energy Solutions program. For only $75, a technician will pinpoint air leaks and seal them, test your heating system, check your ductwork, assess your insulation needs and give you recommendations for additional energy-saving improvements that qualify for rebates. Whether you go on to do the work yourself or hire someone, you benefit from expert advice specific to your home.
