Senior Home Energy Assessment

and Safety Review Program

 

 

Since 2010, CCB has sponsored the Senior Home Energy Assessment & Safety Review program.  This unique program provides an average of $800 worth of services at no charge to Bridgewater homes with at least one resident over 50 years of age. The participation in this program has now reached almost 20% of our senior population!

 

 

The following video presentation was prepared by New England Smartenergy (our partner in performing Home Energy Assessments for seniors) to show what is done during a home energy assessment:

 

 

 

The service includes:

 

  1. Air sealing – Stop drafts.  Be comfortable.  Save money.

  2. Duct sealing – Save up to 20% on heating and cooling.

  3. Insulation evaluation – Heat & cool your house, not the neighborhood.

  4. Appliances Inspection – Are your old appliances energy hogs?

  5. Heating and Cooling System Evaluation – How efficient are you?

  6. Hot water savings measures – Replacement showerheads, pipe insulation

  7. Lighting – A CFL bulb can save you up to $12/year.  Get up to 25 free CFLs.

  8. Various safety checks of your home:

  • Check for mold

  • Check for asbestos

  • Check for CO levels

  • Check for gas leaks 

 

Follow-on work provided by CCB after a Senior Home Energy Assessment and Safety Review includes:

 

  1. Replacement of Smoke detectors (not hard-wired) and carbon monoxide detectors over 10 years old.

  2. Replacement of Smoke detector batteries.

  3. Appropriate safety repairs.
