Denver Heating and Cooling Contractors: Promoting Energy Efficiency
"Thanks to their limited income, non-profit organizations have more reason to adopt energy-efficient heating and cooling in Denver. Once they do, however, the rewards can be very appealing. As Stephanie Carroll Carson and Mary Kuhlman reported in October 2013, for Public News Service-Colorado, Denver Urban Ministries was able to save about $200 per month with the help of folks from the Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC). All they did was to take certain energy-saving steps which, according to Nicole O’Connor of EOC, are pretty obvious: “O’Connor said nonprofits and individuals can see a 5 to 7 percent savings by just turning off lights in the house, setting their thermostat at an appropriate level, and other behavior changes. That savings can climb to 20 percent if they choose major changes such as new windows, doors and HVAC units.”"
