Aspen Resident: Willie Volckhausen, Woody Creek
Home Assessment Findings: A carbon monoxide alarm went off multiple times, leading Willie to get an assessment. His Energy Smart analyst found a disconnected furnace flue vent that was leaking carbon monoxide into the home.
Energy Efficiency Project: Willie remedied his disconnected flue and replaced his old furnace with a properly installed 95% efficient unit, thereby correcting the safety problem and reducing his fossil fuel consumption.
Dollar Savings: $35 per month in winter
Resource Savings: 30% natural gas reduction
Benefit: Willie can sleep soundly, with a furnace that is both safer
and much quieter.
