Alpine Ductless is excited to announce we are now working with Sustainable Works in Pierce and King Counties.
Sustainable Works is a nonprofit general contractor and energy efficiency program helping homeowners make their homes more energy efficient. They are “dedicated to helping you make your home more energy efficient with home energy audits, deep green retrofits and renewables”. The program is” designed to remove the biggest and most common barriers faced by homeowners seeking to become more energy efficient, and to maximize your enjoyment of your home and environment”.
As part of their Save Energy Today program, Sustainable Works will first spend 3 to 4 hours doing a comprehensive inspection of your home to determine where you can save energy. For customers in Pierce and King Counties, this cost is only $150! This service would normally cost $1200, but due to grant funding, the cost is kept low and amazingly affordable.
This energy assesment includes looking at the attic, crawlspace, and wall insulation (using an Infrared Device), measuring air leaks, looking at appliances and the heating system, windows, doors, and other structural components, doing a health and safety check (for gas leaks, mold issues, and other safety issues), and talking with you about do-it-yourself energy saving tips.
During the assessment, a Weatherization team member is available to make immediate energy saving improvements. Depending on your home’s needs, this may include: air sealing leakages, sealing your ducts and pipes, programming thermostats, replacing light bulbs with compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs, wrapping your hot water heater, providing low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators, and other improvements.
As an organization, Sustainable works is also dedicated to creating living wage jobs and the pathways to them, providing social and economic benefits for families, and improving the environment by upgrading existing buildings. We are proud to be working with such a great organization.
