Increasing your home's comfort is its own reward. But sometimes a little friendly competition can add an extra incentive for learning more about energy efficiency.
That's why Maplewood Mayor Nora Slawik recently participated in the NEC's Home Energy Audit and Home Energy Squad programs.
Mayor Slawik scheduled
the audit as part of her involvement in Energize Maplewood, a city-sponsored contest in which 12 teams of Maplewood residents compete to see who can shave the most off their energy footprint.
