Enter to Win a Free Home Energy Audit and a Home Energy Makeover worth up to $10,000!

Sponsored by The Columbus Dispatch and Columbia Gas of Ohio

Home energy costs are climbing, and some homeowners believe that their only option is to pay higher utility bills. However, energy-related home improvements are a one-time cost that can make the home more comfortable, and save homeowners money every month for as long as they own their homes. The Columbia Gas of Ohio Home Energy Makeover Contest is designed to emphasize the comfort and monetary benefits of performing energy-efficient improvements.

Following the September 21, 2012 application deadline, 10 finalists will be selected through a screening process that will identify those homes that use the most energy and can benefit the most from the implementation of the package of energy efficiency upgrades.

Each of the 10 finalists will receive a free comprehensive home energy audit, funded by Columbia Gas of Ohio, and valued up to $500. Based on the results of the audit, three of the homes' results will be featured in advertisements within The Columbus Dispatch on October 11, 18 & 25, and one Grand Prize Winner will be selected to receive up to $10,000 in home energy efficiency upgrades. These upgrades can include a furnace, increased insulation and air sealing provided by our generous sponsors Atlas Butler and Energy Tech.
