Learn to Improve Energy Efficiency at Free Homeowner Workshop in Goleta

Free barbecue and beverages will be provided for attendees of the Jan. 31 event

Is your house leaking air, energy and money? Join us to learn how you can combine cash incentives of up to $4,000 through Energy Upgrade California, and low-cost financing through Santa Barbara County’s emPower program to make home energy efficiency and solar upgrades affordable.

You will leave with an understanding of how to:

» Improve home comfort and indoor air quality.

» Lower utility bills and save money.

» Replace old or broken furnaces, ducts, windows and insulation.

Attend for a chance to win a home energy assessment and a Pharox 300 LED bulb, donated by Allen Associates.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
