Home Energy Impact Program is a class that HOW conducts here or to groups around Kosciusko County available FREE to all homeowners. Renter kits are also offered. The program has received funding from KREMC. HOW provides education and materials that can be found at your local hardware store to reduce energy bills.
In the class, participants learn how to identify where unwanted outside air is coming into their home. There is discussion on habits the family can change to reduce energy bills. Everyone is given hands-on instruction and learns how to install products that are handed out to air seal their home. Light bulb comparisons are done, and everyone receives some LED bulbs. This class is designed for families to get to know the “bones” of their home and empower them to feel comfortable installing the products. Air sealing is also considered as maintenance to the home.
