Enabling Ordinary People to do Extraordinary Things
The Town of Kent has recently launched the Kent Energy Efficiency Drive to help you save money and make our community more energy-efficient and sustainable. We’re partnering with Next Step Living to help residents reduce energy costs and live in a more comfortable and sustainable home.
One step toward lowering your carbon footprint is to take advantage of the Energize Connecticut’s Home Energy SolutionsSM (HES) Program. The program has been shown to increase home comfort and significantly reduce energy costs. A HES visit will provide a complete understanding of where your home’s energy inefficiencies lie and what improvements can be made. This service includes on-the-spot services, such as no-cost air sealing and discounted LED light bulbs, as well as recommendations for greater savings
and access to program incentives.
An additional energy saving measure, if you heat with oil, propane or electric baseboard heat is to install a ductless mini split heating and cooling system. These may save you 25-50 percent on your heating and cooling bills.
Furthermore, these systems provide:
- Room-by-room temperature control. You can easily heat or cool where you want.
- Filtered air circulation. Better circulation leads to improved indoor air quality.
- Easy installation. No ductwork is required, so installation takes just a day or two.
Access to rebates and incentives through the HES program make upgrades like these affordable.
In the coming weeks, Next Step Living representatives will be in your neighborhood. Please take a few minutes to speak with them about your home energy usage and take advantage of the services available to you. For each completed assessment, Next Step Living will contribute up to $50 to the Kent Food Bank and the Kent Fuel Bank.
