South Burlington, Vermont – Vermont Gas is now making it easier for homeowners in mobile home communities to save money and reduce their energy needs. Vermont Gas’ new Mobile Home Pilot Program is designed to identify and repair leaky air ducts and upgrade insulation in the roof and floor of mobile homes. Older homes can be particularly inefficient and drafty, reducing winter comfort and leading to increased costs for families. With Vermont Gas’ help, these homes can see 20% savings on their energy bills.
“I knew because of the type of home I own that it wasn’t very efficient for the environment or for my checkbook, I wanted to do something about it but wasn’t sure where to turn,” said Jodie Peck, of Williston. “I was surprised how helpful the free energy audit was and how easy it was to work with Vermont Gas to upgrade my home. Thanks to Vermont Gas and this program, I’m actually looking forward to winter for the first time in a long time.”
In addition to expert energy advice, the Vermont Gas Mobile Home Pilot Program offers several financial incentives to help mobile homeowners pay for the cost of upgrades including rebates of up to 75% for duct sealing, and roof and belly insulation. Those who qualify as low-income will receive these measures at no cost. Vermont Gas also provides rebates on energy efficient appliances and more.
“We are excited to raise awareness about this important program because it will make a big different in the lives of our customers in mobile homes,” said Don Rendall, Vermont Gas President and CEO. “Our aim is simple: Be there for all our customers every day. We want our customers to know that efficiency upgrades are not too expensive for working families, and our teams are the best out there at finding opportunities for our customers to save and then working with you every step of the way to get the work done so you can be more secure in your home and start saving money right away.”
Vermont Gas’ efficiency programs are nationally recognized and save customers more than $10 million annually. And natural gas is currently 19% less expensive than heating oil and 57% cheaper than propane. Learn more about free energy audits, by visiting vermontgas.com/freeaudit.
