The Grinspoon Foundation took thermal images of more than 6,500 homes in Springfield to detect heat leakage. They will be sending letters to homeowners with information about places in their home where there is energy loss. Whether not a home was scanned, homeowners can apply for an energy audit. Visit the ener-G-save website or call 413-279-9141 to request your free audit. After completing the audit, homeowners can access incentives through the utility companies to make improvements.
