Letter to the Editor: Energy nonprofit does good work

I have noticed two recent items in your publication about the good work done by the Neighborworks Heatsquad in providing energy audits and helping residents weatherize their homes.
I would like to add that one of the nice features about Neighborworks is that they are a non-profit agency, so their advice is truly independent.
Furthermore, their energy audits have been streamlined so that someone requesting an energy audit can receive the results the same day the audit is done. At that time, the auditor can help his/her customers make a plan for how to carry out the recommended weatherization work in the most cost effective way. They can also recommend contractors who are trained to do this kind of work.
Best of all, Neighborworks stands behind the contractors they recommend. If there is a problem with the work, they will make sure the contractor fixes the problem to the satisfaction of the customer.
I know that Neighborworks has gradually been increasing the territory they serve. I support their efforts to reach out to the rest of the state so as to provide their low-cost services to more underserved communities.
To find out more about making a plan to receive an energy audit and learn about financing options through the Neighborworks Heatsquad, go to: https://heatsquad.org/.
