Learn How to Get EnergySmart in 2014

EnergySmart is an easy way to a more comfortable home that saves energy and money. For just $70, an EnergySmart advisor will conduct an energy audit of your home and provide a report on your home’s energy use. The advisor will also help determine which energy-saving measures will most improve your home’s comfort and reduce your energy bill. To help you get started, LPC is hosting an EnergySmart informational program at the Longmont Public Library, 409 4th Avenue, at 7 pm on Wednesday, January 8. If you can’t attend this session, visit for more information.
