Save Money and Energy with a Home Energy Checkup

Are you looking to stay cool and save money on utility bills this summer? Take advantage of a FREE resource through the Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge. Receive a free home energy checkup from Rising Sun. You can take part in an energy checkup without leaving your home, and identify the best options for improving your home's energy use and air quality. Take advantage of a virtual Green House Call from Rising Sun. Fill out a 10 minute online survey, and they will send you free items to improve home efficiency, such as a low-flow showerhead, a power strip, light bulbs, toilet leak detection tablets, and more! 

 

After your kit arrives, you will also receive a follow-up call to ensure the process went smoothly. What are you waiting for? Save energy in place today!

Once you complete the home energy checkup, you can also mark other Challenge Actions complete, like Install Smart Power Strips and Install Low Flow!

 

According to the Department of Energy, implementing the energy upgrades recommended in a Home Energy Audit can save 5%-30% on your monthly energy bill. These improvements will also lead to increased comfort—a warmer, cozier home in the winter and a cooler home in the summer. Many of these improvements lead to improved air quality and a healthier and safer home. 

There is still time to participate in the Spring/Summer Cleaner Contra Costa ChallengeThrough August 31st, work with your Team to save water and energy, save money, build community, and earn prizes!
