Weather Cooling Down, SoCalGas Can Help Get Your Home Ready

By EGP Staff Report

Just in time for the winter season, SoCalGas is offering energy-efficient home improvements, such as weatherization and furnace repair at no cost to limited income renters and homeowners as a way to potentially lower energy bills.

Under the Energy Savings Assistance Program (ESAP) SoCalGas will send a team of contractors to the homes of qualified renters and homeowners to repair or replace furnaces and provide energy-savings home improvements such as, attic insulation, door weather-stripping and installing low flow shower heads and faucets.

The free service is offered to customers who qualify based on income guidelines or existing enrollement in programs such as Medi-Cal/Medicaid, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program and WIC. Renters and homeowners must sign up online to schedule a home visit. An ESAP contractor will schedule a date for the home improvements and a follow up visit to ensure the repairs are operating correctly once he or she conducts a walk through to determine eligibility.

ESAP also offers tips to customers on ways to save on their gas bill and use less gas.
