Columbia Gas of Ohio has a local WarmChoice provider in each
county it serves. The provider verifies customer eligibility and then performs
a home energy inspection. A heating contractor may be sent to service the gas
furnace, space heaters, and the water heater if repairs or replacement are
needed. Gas cook stoves may also be inspected. After the heating equipment is
determined to be safe, an insulation crew may install insulation and seal up
major air leaks. Each WarmChoice customers home receives a final inspection to
ensure the WarmChoice weatherization work was done properly. WarmChoice reduces
gas usage by an average of 28 percent. This reduced gas usage can amount to
approximately $400 in average savings. Customers' homes are safer and more
comfortable after participating in WarmChoice.
