Drafty homes are more susceptible to fevers and chills, leading to carpet-soaking night sweats and hallucinations about hungry termites. Keep homes robust and infection free with today’s Groupon: for $160, you get a home-energy-savings package from Character Craftsmen (a $400 value). This deal is valid for homes in the metro Atlanta area, as well as Cobb, Fulton, Dekalb, Douglas, Gwinnett, Fayette, and Clayton counties.
Armed with an eye for wattage-stealing weaknesses, Character Craftsmen helps homeowners bolster energy efficiency with a one-hour in-home assessment (a $400 value). Craftsmen technicians will outfit homes with a seven-day programmable thermostat and conduct an energy-usage check of all major appliances and electronics. Turning to the home's foundation, technicians will inspect attics for insulation and ventilation and then scour walls, ceilings, and floors for draft-inducing leaks. These gaps and cracks can usher in unwanted hot and cold air, causing HVAC systems to overwork and punish inattentive homeowners with bitterly cold showers.
Technicians will then inspect all ductwork for leaks and provide visual-inspection estimates for repairs. Character’s crack team of kilowatt-savers will also tinker and tune up air conditioners for an additional $30. An energy assessment from Character will enhance the home's ability to maintain ideal temperatures while helping to reduce utility bills and freeing up funds to expand your Bauhaus-cookie-jar collection.
