- Energy Smart Counties
Eagle-Vail Residents: Chris, Stacey & Kylah Romer
Home Assessment Findings: Leaks at the doors and windows, not enough attic insulation, and costly incandescent light bulbs.
Energy Efficiency Project: The Romer’s hired a local insulation company to add insulation in their attic, had all their windows and doors sealed up before winter, and replaced all lighting in their home with efficient CFL bulbs.
Resource Savings: An average monthly savings of over 20% on the utility costs.
Benefit: Much more comfortable temperatures in the rooms upstairs and lower utility bills during the winter.
“We’d highly recommend the Energy Smart Program. We added attic insulation & sealed our windows and doors, both cost effective solutions to improve the comfort of our home. The cost savings on our energy bills was an added bonus.” — Chris & Stacey Romer
