"my house needed some work on it, so i decided i would call that number and check and see and i got approved." howard was having problems with her ac unit, which was sky rocketing her light bill... then four county stepped in... "her unit was up in the attic and it was an older system. it was an all electric system that was consuming a whole lot of electricity. her duct work was very leaky, and we actually brought her unit out of the attic, put it down in the closet, redid all of our duct work, air-sealed her house." once the job was complete, howard says she immediately noticed a difference.. her electric bill went from around two hundred dollars a month.... to just over one hundred dollars... "that is very important, because at first it was really high so after they done the work that cut it down a whole lot and i was just proud of that." "when a customer says my light bill has been cut in half, or you would not believe how many called me and told me and say hey, my light bill is $0 less than it was this time last year, it's a big deal." "it was a low income program. they had to bring their financial stuff into us, the house i had to be an all electric, the house had to be at least 20 years old." when crews do a makeover, they do various things such as install heating and cooling units.... replace windows and doors... and seal air leaks... "these systems we installed are the highest on the market pretty much." "the program was a real benefit to four county because it saved us some tricity that we have to buy from tva, and is saving some of our customers a lot of money, it also helps with some of our vendors such as our heating and cooling people, our installation people, and some local vendors that we bought equipment from." in the past year and a half, four county made upgrades to 265 homes through its extreme energy makeover program.. reporting in mayhew....quentin smith...wcbi news... stinger
