First Energy Audit

Groundwork Denver’s Energy Program has been conducting energy audits and saving residents money for what feels like ever, but in reality, our first energy audit was conducted only 14 years ago, in 2008. Nowadays, GWD serves a variety of income-qaulifiying residents every year through our Energy Audit Program. Our Energy Auditors inspect major energy uses and insulation levels, install low-cost upgrades, and conduct blower-door-directed air sealing. Depending on the needs of the particular house, the auditors will potentially install a programmable thermostat, low-flow showerhead, weather-stripping, duct sealant and more! These audits can save anywhere from $50/year for simple changes like installing compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs), to more than $400/year for bigger changes like attic insulation.
