For 45 years, TrueNorth Community Services has worked diligently to keep community members safe during the heating season, while also providing the resources, know-how, and confidence to help sustain a household. Saving money is one of the keys to that self-sufficiency.
Right in your own home, you have the power to save money and energy. Saving energy reduces our nation's overall demand for resources needed to make energy, and increasing our energy efficiency is like adding another clean energy source to our electric power grid.
An energy-efficient home will keep your family comfortable while saving you money. Whether you take simple steps or make larger investments to make your home more efficient, you'll see lower energy bills. Over time, those savings will typically pay for the cost of the improvements and put money back in your pocket.
According to the US Department of Energy, the 115 million residences in America today collectively use an estimated 22.5% of the country's energy. Unfortunately, much of the energy is wasted through leaky windows or ducts, old appliances, or inefficient heating and cooling systems.
