Audits save cash, energy

Dear Editor:

A recent letter writer asked about things Aspenites can do to reduce their environmental footprint. I’ve done something that benefited me way beyond what I expected. I got a home energy audit – a simple, quick process that saved me a lot of money.

Before I got an audit, I would have wasted my money on things I thought would make my home more energy-efficient, things like expensive new windows. The audit let me find a whole host of things that I could do myself, for almost no cost, fixing things that were wasting a lot of energy that I didn’t know about. I was able to find several places where air was leaking into my house that I could easily plug up – places where I had no idea I was losing heat. Those things have made a big difference in my energy use. I think that anyone interested in saving money and saving energy will be very glad they got an energy audit.

People on Aspen Electric can get an audit by going to – click on “Request your BPI professional Home Energy Audit,” or call Jeff Rice at 920-5118, and he will set you up with an auditor. With rebates, the audit will be free! If you are a Holy Cross customer, call 945-5491 to schedule a free home electricity audit.
