Puget Sound Energy offering free efficiency upgrades to manufactured home residents

OlympianNovember 12, 2013 

Puget Sound Energy customers throughout Thurston County who live in manufactured homes, and use electric forced-air as their primary heat source will soon have a chance to seal up leaky ductwork and receive other energy efficiency upgrades for free.

The service is estimated at about $500, and could reduce heating bills by about 30 percent.

PSE has teamed up with energy specialist UCONS, LLC to install the free upgrades. A certified specialist will seal the ductwork, as well as provide free, on-site installation of Energy Star qualified compact fluorescent light bulbs in high-use areas such as kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms. Customers also receive furnace air filter replacements and up to two energy-efficient showerheads.

UCONS representatives will be going door-to-door with flyers to discuss the service with PSE customers, or customers can call 800-828-8440, to request the service.
