What is in an Energy Saver Kit?
Each kit comes personally customized to fit the needs of your home! The item(s) you receive in your kit will vary depending on the answers given when you sign up to receive your Energy Saver Kit.
Here are some of the items you may receive:
LED Light Bulbs - Compared to the typical incandescent light bulbs, LED light bulbs use up to 90% less energy, produce the same quality of light and last up to 25 times longer.
Low-Flow Faucet Aerators - Low flow faucet aerators reduce the flow of water from the faucet without reducing pressure, saving both water and energy.
Low-Flow Shower Head - Low flow showerheads are designed to reduce the amount of water, without reducing the pressure.
Water Heater Pipe Insulation - Insulating your hot water pipes can reduce heat loss, which decreases the amount of energy needed to continue to heat your pipes.
Furnace Filter Whistle - This mechanism alerts you when you need to replace your furnace filter by producing a whistling noise. When you replace your furnace filter regularly, it increases the air quality within your house and allows for your HVAC system (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) to run smoothly.
Outlet/Light Switch Insulators - Outlet and light switch insulators help to reduce drafts from outlets and switches on exterior walls.
Rope Caulk - Rope caulk can be used to fill gaps around windows and doors to prevent airflow.
Expandable Spray Foam - Expandable spray foam can be used to fill larger gaps and cracks in spaces like basement foundations or attics.
