Home Makeover Contest!
One lucky homeowner will win up to $10,000 in home energy improvements which will reduce home energy bills.
Grand Prize: $10,000
Entry Dates: July 16 - August 26, 2012
The winner will be announced at the end of September, and the improvement work will be scheduled in October in coordination with the homeowner.
WHAT YOU WIN: One lucky Richmond area homeowner will win a Home Energy Makeover valued at up to $10,000. Home energy improvements range from small to large solutions and often include air and duct sealing, HVAC upgrades, insulation, sealing and/or replacing windows and doors, and lighting. With these upgrades, homeowners enjoy lower energy bills, increased comfort and higher home values.
WHO CAN ENTER: Single family homeowners who reside in the City of Richmond, Town of Ashland, and in the counties of Hanover, Chesterfield, Henrico, Goochland, Powhatan, New Kent and Charles City are eligible.
HOW: You enter online. The online entry involves a simple 5-minute home energy evaluation survey that will create a personalized home energy report. You will be asked basic questions about your home (size, heating & cooling, insulation, etc) and asked to submit your name, email address and address.
EVEN IF YOU DON'T WIN: Everyone who enters the contest will receive a free home energy report (it takes just five minutes to enter your information) with an energy efficiency score and recommendations for what you can do to improve that score, lower your bills and enhance your comfort.
As part of the Non-Profit Challenge, when you enter to win, you can choose to do so through a link with the name of your favorite participating non-profit organization. The non-profit generating the most entries receives a $1,000 cash donation. Your information will not be used for any other purpose than this contest and will not be shared.
