GARFIELD COUNTY, Colorado ” A thick layer of insulation in your home’s attic and walls will save money on utility bills, and keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Garfield County homeowners with little or no attic insulation are encouraged to enter the “Garfield 100% Rebate Home Energy Audit and Insulation Contest.”

A total of 12 homeowners throughout the county will win a 100 percent rebate to cover the costs of a home energy audit and professionally installed attic and wall insulation worth up to $1,400.

“Whether you heat your home with natural gas, propane or electric baseboard heating, your bills will be lower and you will be more comfortable if your home has insulation suited to our climate,” said Rifle Mayor Keith Lambert. “If the insulation in your attic is skimpy or spotty, or if there’s no insulation at all, this contest is a great opportunity to get a home energy audit and the insulation your home needs.”

The contest opens today. The deadline is Friday, May 1. The entry form and rules are online at http://www.GarfieldCleanEnergy.org, or call 704-9200, ext. 1, for information.

The Garfield New Energy Communities Initiative and the Governor’s Energy Office are sponsoring and funding the contest, which is aimed at increasing the energy efficiency of homes throughout Garfield County.

The contest is open to owners of homes in Garfield County that are owner-occupied or rentals, and that have less than R-20 insulation in the attic. Visit the Garfield Clean Energy website for information on how to size up your attic insulation.

The contest drawing, to be done by Mayor Lambert and Garfield County Commissioner Mike Samson, will choose two winners from each of Garfield County’s six ZIP codes. There is no entry fee, and winners need not be present to win.

Winners will have until June 19 to get their home energy audit, and until Aug. 14 to have the insulation work done.

Those who don’t win can still take advantage of great home insulation rebate offers now available from Xcel Energy, SourceGas and the Garfield New Energy Communities Initiative. Information about the rebate programs is available at http://www.GarfieldCleanEnergy.org.
