Home Repair Resource Center, Dominion East Partner To Offer Energy Audits
Information courtesy of the Home Repair Resource Center
Home Repair Resource Center, a Cleveland Heights nonprofit, announced that it is partnering with the Dominion East Ohio’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program again this fall to encourage homeowners to sign up for energy audits. Dominion East Ohio residential gas customers will pay only $50 for the 3-4 hour energy assessment (normally a $500 value), and HRRC will receive a donation from GoodCents (the company providing the audits) for each order placed between Oct. 10th and Nov. 10th.
The audit will include tests to determine where energy is currently being lost in the home; free home improvements such as caulking, weatherstripping, door sweeps, and more; and a report identifying and prioritizing measures that will make the home more energy efficient and comfortable. If the homeowners then make any of the suggested improvements using pre-qualified contractors and use the official rebate process, they can get up to $1,250 back – and the GoodCents auditor will return to check the quality of the work and verify that appropriate materials were installed.
The value of this partnership with GoodCents extends beyond the funds provided to Home Repair Resource Center; it benefits the entire community when energy is conserved and homeowners pay less for heating costs. Audits can be ordered online at www.deoenergysavers.com or by calling (877) 287-3416.
