Home Improvements Lower Heating Costs
With cooler temperatures already upon us, I wanted to share my personal experience with the Denver Energy Challenge. This program has one main goal - help you make your home more energy efficient and lower your utility bills.
As homeowners make important decisions about how to replace and repair recent flood damage to homes, it is important to know that the Denver Energy Challenge is available to help. Denver Energy Challenge Advisors are available over the phone to help residents with replacing, repairing and restoring water-damaged home equipment and systems such as insulation, furnaces, water heaters, duct systems, washers and other appliances.
Owning or renting a home in Denver during the hot summer and cold winter months can often make a person think twice about indoor comfort, however rising energy costs and property investments can sometimes outweigh comfort alone. For Frank, a Denver resident in the Goldsmith neighborhood, investing in energy improvements at home not only made sense financially, it made sense for his Denver rental properties too.
The Denver Energy Challenge is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) through the U.S. Department of Energy's BetterBuildings Program and administered by the City and County of Denver's Department of Environmental Health.
