Like a check-up for your house, getting a home energy assessment lets you know how your home is performing and provides tips and resources to optimize it. It’s the gateway to using less energy. The assessment includes safety testing, $100 worth of quick-fix installs, and a report that outlines opportunities for improvements.
Call us today at 970.925.9775 or click here to sign up. This $400 value is subsidized by CORE and our utility partners and only costs you $100!*
Do you live in the Town of Snowmass Village? If so, thanks to the generosity of a local donor, the assessment is available at no cost to Snowmass Village residents! Sign up today.
*One the occasion that an assessment is offered at no cost, the following policy is in place: Free assessments are limited to those who have not had an assessment in the last three years, barring any substantial remodel.
Building Permits: To ensure your energy upgrades were installed properly and in a safe manner, make sure your contractor has pulled the appropriate permit. Consult with your local building department to confirm which projects will require a permit.
Carbon Monoxide: An Energy Smart Home Energy Assessment will not only improve the efficiency and comfort of your home, it also includes critical safety testing. Gas heated appliances can off-gas carbon monoxide, a fatal threat to health and human safety. Energy Smart analysts perform testing for carbon monoxide to ensure that your home is safe for you and your family.
Radon: In addition to carbon monoxide, you are encouraged to test for radon. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and Colorado has some of the highest rates. A tighter home is a more efficient home. However, since air sealing could increase radon levels in the house, we recommend testing for radon before proceeding with home insulation projects.
