Agency joins in observances of energy use, weatherization

A Western Slope agency will join in an observance of National Energy Awareness Month in October and National Weatherization Day on Oct. 30.

Housing Resources of Western Colorado — a nonprofit corporation based in Grand Junction — promotes affordable housing and energy conservation through programs for low- and moderate-income residents.

A weatherization program helps decrease energy consumption while increasing the comfort of homes.  Services include energy audits and conservation information as well as compact fluorescent light bulbs, furnace safety testing and replacement, insulation in attics and walls, refrigerator replacement, storm windows and sealing air leaks. On average, energy use in homes that have gone through the Housing Resources weatherization program decreases 30 percent.

Since 1989, a Housing Resources has weatherized more than 6,400 homes in the region, saving homeowners and renters a total estimated at more than $11.5 million.

More information about and applications for weatherization services are available by calling Housing Resources at 241-2871 or visiting  the website at www.housingresourceswc.org.
