Warming Up an Old Home

Wednesday, January 20, 2021

Main News Photo

I was living on fixed income, in an old home with very little insulation; even setting my thermostat to 78 degrees did not warm the house up.   My daughter looked online and found GROW SD and helped me apply for their Weatherization Assistance Program. 

GROW SD completed an energy audit on the home, which helped to determine what work was needed on the home.  Insulation was added in the attic, basement and walls; light bulbs were replaced.  The dryer vent and bathroom exhaust fan were fixed, plus much more.   Because of GROW SD, my house is warmer and peaceful. I do not have to set the thermostat so high and I do not hear the outside noise as much as I used to.  The men doing the work were so professional. No time was wasted and they kept me informed on everything they were doing.  It was very obvious that Dustin cares about his clients. He is excellent at what he does.  Thank you all very much.  It is greatly appreciated.
