City offers free home energy audits to Issaquah residents
October 26, 2010
The city Resource Conservation Office and partner Puget Sound Energy have 30 free home energy audits available for Issaquah residents. The deadline to sign up has been extended through Nov. 5.
Find the application for the HomePrint audit here. Then, fax the form to 837-3409 or scan and e-mail the application to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off the form at City Hall Northwest, 1775 12th Ave. N.W.
Independent HomePrint-certified specialists evaluate the major energy systems inside a home, including central heating and air conditioning, water heating, weatherization, lighting, and appliances and electronics.
From the audit participants, the city plans to pick a homeowner to receive a free weatherization — a $4,000 value. The renovated home will then be used as a show house, and free tours will be offered to help the public understand the benefits of a home energy retrofit.
The city has made the audits available through support from PSE and a U.S. Department of Energy grant awarded to Issaquah.
