The city of Snoqualmie and PSE are teaming up for Winterize Snoqualmie – an effort to help ensure that homes will be warm for winter, with lower energy bills. The program provides free energy assessments and discounted home improvement services for City residents.
Most homes may realize the benefits of a free home energy assessment. Although older homes usually have more available improvements, assessments can benefit houses of any age, and sometimes catch home construction issues impacting your heating bill.
“We had a cold winter last year, so we’re excited the program will help folks stay warm while reducing energy bills ” said Nicole Sanders, a Senior Planner assisting the program. “PSE even has rebates on smart power strips and smart thermostats. Almost anyone can use those!”
Home energy assessments bring a certified PSE Energy Assessment team member to evaluate your home, and deliver a customized report on ways to lower your energy bill, while improving comfort. Participants receive up to 20 LED lightbulbs, up to two kitchen or bathroom aerators each, and up to two performance showerheads, free.
Interested homeowners may sign up at www.pse.com/EnergyAssessment.
The city is also hosting the Winterize Snoqualmie workshop, 6 to 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 27, at Snoqualmie City Hall, 38624 SE River St.
Sign up for an assessment or discuss your home report; learn about over 40 PSE rebates; discuss group discounts with a home contractor; talk with loan experts on financing; and enjoy refreshments.
