Case Study: Ruth and Eli

Saving energy is just smart

Eli and Ruth Lumpkins always have been energy conscious. When the Grand Rapids couple asked for an energy audit, they had suspicions about why their home was cold and drafty in the winter and stubbornly warm and humid in the summer. The assessment confirmed their suspicions and revealed a hidden mold problem. After remediating the mold and installing a new furnace and insulation, Ruth and Eli are much more comfortable. Ruth explained, “The air conditioner doesn’t need to run all the time like it used to. It’s much cooler, and it stays cool for longer, too.”

Ruth and Eli are now SAVING 23% on their utility costs every month.
