Each year, as the leaves turn colour and a fall chill sets in, Direct Energy rolls out their ‘Light Up’ campaign, a program designed to educate home owners on easy ways to get their homes winter-ready. Their helpful energy efficiency and DIY tips for home improvement have always been popular with Canadian home owners.
This year, the Direct Energy team worked with High Road to take things to a new level, teaming up with Carrie Anne Badov from Everything Mom as she invited her blogger friends over for an afternoon of energy efficiency with Dave Walton, Director of Home Ideas. The event taught guests ways to ensure their homes are in tip top shape for winter and how to take control of their winter energy bills.
Prior to the event, Carrie Anne had an energy assessment completed, showing her the areas of her home most susceptible to energy loss. The audit also provided her personalized suggestions for improvement, highlighting those that would yield the largest cost savings.
The result? Invaluable insights and tons of buzz with guests both online and offline.
Carrie Anne and her fellow guests learned plenty of helpful tips to help them become their own home energy expert. The afternoon was a huge success and Dave Walton was a great spokesperson, leaving guests with information and tips that will have them seeing their winter heating bills decrease.
For example, did you know that spiders like a cool breeze and cob webs are a sure sign of an air leak?
