Eagle Residents: Traci, Elias and Aedric Bratton
Home Assessment Findings: After completing a comprehensive Energy Smart Home Energy Assessment there were many energy saving opportunities that were identified. Insulation and Air Sealing in the crawlspace and attic was the top priority for the home.
Energy Efficiency Project: The Brattons used two EnergySmart Contractors, EES (Richard Backe) and Active Energies to complete the projects. EES was able to decrease their air leakage by 20% and increase their attic and crawspace insulation by 50%. The Bratton’s were also able to install a 6.0 KW Photovolataic System on their roof provided by Active Energies. Both of these projects were fully financed with no money down, through Energy Smart Colorado.
Resource Savings: After the completion of the insulation and air sealing project the Bratton family is more comfortable in their home and have decreased their energy use by 25%.
Benefit: The 6.0 kW roof-mounted photovoltaic system is generating over 8,700 kWh a year which will cover almost all of this home’s electrical costs.
“I didn’t even know something like this was available. We got our $100 back right away with LED bulbs, insulating pipe wrap, and a programmable thermostat and then got a report that helped us make further improvements.” — Traci Bratton
