Properly sealing your home is one of the easiest ways you can save energy and money.  The cost of sealing your home is $15-$300, with many low-cost options – like caulking and canned spray foam –  to get you started.

February Task of the Month

Each month, the Monroe County Energy Challenge will present a Task of the Month for people who are helping us save energy and work toward winning the $5 million Georgetown University Energy Prize.

The February Task of the Month is to install and use a programmable thermostat.

Properly using a programmable thermostat in your home is one of the easiest ways you can save energy and money.

Did you know that Vectren offers $20 rebates on programmable thermostats for customers who heat with natural gas, or $100 off wifi-controlled models.

The cost of a programmable thermostat is $40-80. Estimated savings from using one is $60 per year.
