Little Rock, AR - Your home is your castle, and often times that castle can get a little drafty! The Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas' Bret Curry is announcing the winners of a prize that end stop the draft and save you cash!
The Quenga family of Fort Smith won the makeover. The infrared images shown were taken at the home to show where the Quenga family is losing approximately 70% of their air (through the ceiling/roof/attic/walls) in an attempt to keep their home cool during the summer months.
Currently, their utility bill is at an estimated $400 a month. Once the makeover work is done to home, to help trap the air inside and resist the heat from outside, ECA predicts the Quenga family's utility cost will be cut drastically. The estimated utility cost post energy efficiency makeover will be around $150.
