Have a larger project you now have time to consider, but not quite sure how to pay for it? A good option available to Colorado homeowners is the RENU loan program established by Colorado Energy Office. This loan program is designed to provide low-interest financing for energy efficiency upgrades.

Additional ways to save energy…

  • Always turn off lights when you leave a room (regardless of how long you’ll be gone)
  • Choose a slow cooker/instant pot over cooking on the stovetop or oven
  • Clean your refrigerator coils
  • Set your hot water heater to 120°F
  • Hot tub sitting idle? Turn heat down to 85°F
  • Reverse the direction of your ceiling fan (clockwise in the winter to bring warm air down & counter-clockwise in the summer to cool the room)
  • Turn off heat tape at all breakers
  • Wash clothes in cool or cold water
  • Place clothes on a drying rack rather than running the clothes dryer
