Is Your Home Too Cold?

Most homes in Marin were built before 1980 and are in need of energy efficiency upgrades. Fixing insulation and building envelope air sealing in an older home can make a big difference with comfort and efficiency. Visit our Energy Efficiency Programs for Residents page for information on current residential energy efficiency programs.
