Congratulations to the two winners of the CoGreen Home Makeover Contest!

A whole-house energy analysis was conducted on each family's home and the icons below describe the types of upgrades that were performed. Click on the families' pictures below to view the videos that can help you save energy dollars in your own home.

  HVAC Upgrade
EnergyStar® labeled HVAC systems have a higher seasonal energy efficiency rating (SEER) and heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) than standard models, making these units more efficient than standard new models.
  Attic Insulation
Adding insulation in your attic saves money and keeps your home more comfortable by maintaining a uniform temperature throughout the house.
  Radiant Barrier
Attic radiant barriers primarily reduce air-conditioning cooling loads in warm or hot climates. Radiant barriers usually consist of a thin sheet or coating of a highly reflective material.
  Sealing Windows & Doors
Sealing these air leaks around your doors and windows with caulk and/or weather-stripping can have a great impact on improving your comfort and reducing utility bills.
  Sealing Duct Work
In an average home, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks and poorly sealed connections. Sealing your duct work can result in lower utility bills and a more comfortable home.
  Whole-House CFL Overhaul
CFLs typically use about 75 percent less energy and lasts about ten times longer than an incandescent bulb. They will typically pay for themselves in six months or less.
  EnergyStar Appliances (electric only)
Refrigerator Upgrade—EnergyStar qualified refrigerators use 20 percent less energy than standard models.
  Water Heater Upgrade
EnergyStar qualified heat pump water heaters can save the average home as much as 50 percent per year in water heating cost compared to a standard electric water heater.
Programmable Thermostats
A programmable thermostat makes it easy to save with pre-programmed settings to regulate your home's temperature in summer and winter—when you are asleep or away. Using a programmable thermostat can save approximately $180 annually.
Attic Ventilation
Whether you use a solar attic fan, an electric fan, or a wind turbine, venting the air in your attic makes a big difference in energy bills.
