HELPING COLORADO FAMILIES HAVE SAFER,
MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT HOMES.

This is Angela.  She and nine family members share the home she grew up in.  Her mother is under home hospice care.  ERC was able to help with their high utility bills so they are able to focus on more important things.

I cannot say enough about ERC. The difference we feel in our home is amazing. Our house is warmer and our utility bill is lower. Plus, their staff is professional. It was a great experience for our family!

Staying Cool in Colorado Without AC
Colorado summers pale in comparison to the heat that affects much of the rest of the country. While Arizona hits toasty triple digit degrees and the South threatens to get carried away by mosquitoes in the humidity, Colorado temperatures typically stay in the mid-eighties and nineties, with just a few days creeping towards tropical heat.
What Happens to My Recycling After I Drop It Off?
Whether you drop your recycling off at a common bin and sort it out by glass, paper, cardboard and plastic or you throw it all in one can and roll it to the curb, you probably aren’t exactly sure what happens to it from there. You figure it’s repurposed instead of being buried in landfill somewhere. But how?
What Should I Do If I Suspect A Gas Leak At Home?
In Colorado, a great many of our furnaces, water heaters and stoves run on natural gas. It’s a prevalent and cost effective energy source that’s also a lot cleaner than wood and coal alternatives. However, gas leaks can be deadly. So, what should you do if you suspect a gas leak? It might not be what you think.
