Green Iowa AmeriCorps is providing free energy audit and weatherization services to the Jefferson County area, with support from Alliant Energy, Maharishi University of Management and other local organizations.
The goal is to lower utility bills by reducing water and energy usage.
The services begin with comprehensive gas leak and carbon monoxide testing, along with a walk-through assessment of the home. Next, the team uses a blower-door test to determine the home?s air infiltration rate and leaky areas of concern.
Last, the team will weatherize the home, sealing air leaks and providing further energy efficiency measures.
All members of the community are eligible for the audit and weatherization service, but priority is given to low-income, disabled, elderly and veteran citizens.
