Last week, we told you about the “Home Energy Savings Makeover Project” with HVAC expert Gary Parr.
Parr hosts a radio show on KSEV 700AM every Saturday from 2-4pm answering consumer’s questions about all things energy-related. Parr gets a lot of questions about how homeowners can improve the energy efficiency in their homes and slash their electric bills. With that in mind, he decided to show all of Houston exactly how much money we can save by doing things like installing a more efficient A/C, a tankless hot water heater, double pane windows and better insulation.
He will select a home in our viewing area to get a complete makeover absolutely free. The homeowner reaps the benefits of all of the free work and equipment. The rest of us benefit by getting all the numbers on exactly how much each project helps to reduce the homeowner’s electric bill. Then you can decide which of the upgrades, if any, would be right for you.
We’ll be tracking the entire project over the next year. It fits perfectly with our continuing coverage of “Your Electric Bill.” The first step is picking a home. If you’d like to be considered, you have to register by filling out the online application no later than May 31st.
After our broadcast on May 18th, Parr received more than 700 applications. Get yours in today!
