Colorado’s Affordable Residential Energy or CARE program is a great opportunity for local income-qualified residents to improve your homes’ comfort, safety, and efficiency. Through CARE we conduct free certified assessments of the home and then complete free energy retrofit work. Energy efficiency upgrades may include a furnace tune-up and safety check, LED light bulbs, programmable thermostats, efficient shower heads and sink aerators, air sealing, and insulation upgrades.
