Energy savings cost goes up

Homeowners planning to take advantage of the Home Energy Solutions™ program might want to schedule an appointment before Sept. 1. That’s when the $99 cost will increase to $124.
Described as a “physical check-up” for a home’s energy fitness, the program provides approximately $1,000 in services and residents who participate save on average $200 on their annual energy bills, according to a press release from Energize Connecticut.
The entire process also serves as an educational resource, helping homeowners make energy-savings choices and improvements.
On-the-spot installation of energy-saving light bulbs, including LEDs and CFLs, and water-saving products like low-flow showerheads, faucet aerators and hot water pipe wrap are some of the benefits of the program.
