The Housing Assistance Corporation’s Energy program is reminding Cape Codders—homeowners and renters alike–that summer is the time to call about getting a free energy assessment for your home.

HAC’s state-certified auditors conduct the assessments to help people reduce their energy use in order to save money on heating and cooling bills and make their home’s temperature more comfortable.  Proper insulation helps make your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Those who qualify under income guidelines by earning under 60 percent of state median income may receive energy-saving light bulbs, water conservation tools, and other energy-saving devices.

Income qualified homeowners and tenants may receive free weatherization installations identified during the audit. In addition, your inefficient refrigerator, window air conditioner or heating unit may qualify for a free, high-efficiency replacement.

Funding for the program on Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard comes from the Department of Community Development, Cape Light Compact, and National Grid.

For more information or to schedule your free energy assessment, call Cape Light Compact at 800-797-6699.
