A Home Energy Assessment Makes Good Cents

What is a Home Energy Assessment?

An Energy Assessment is a review of your home’s overall energy efficiency, which can be affected by many things. Roof condition, insulation levels, outdated appliances, old furnaces, leaky hot water heaters, single-pane windows, etc. all have an impact. The goal is to see where your home is losing energy so that we can formulate a plan to save on energy costs. This “big picture” view of your home’s energy efficiency can lead to significant savings on your utility bill because you won’t need to set your thermostat quite as high to stay warm, or your air conditioning as low to stay cool.

Why Should You Get a Home Energy Assessment?
Residential properties account for about 10% of carbon emissions in the US, according to the EPA, which means they are very inefficient and waste huge amounts of energy and…money!In addition to reducing your carbon footprint, you will learn how to improve your home’s comfort. It will also help you save money (woo hoo!).

Rising from the Ashes

Congratulations to our neighbor, Denise Harris, on the purchase of her new home! Denise swung by to thank Deputy Director of Lending, Chris Flynn, for helping her get back on her feet after a fire destroyed her home. With his guidance, she was able to turn this tragic situation around and purchase a new home. Helping folks along their homeownership journey is exactly why we’re here, and we’re so happy for you, Denise!
