GREENSBORO, NC -- An energy assessment is one thing. But it won't do you any good if it just sits on your kitchen counter. Greensboro resident Anna Fesmire knows that first hand. She made energy saving upgrades to her home such as sealing air ducts and cracks in her home as well as insulating walls in the attic. She noticed some big benefits. "The drafts we used to have are completely gone. And the insulation has really made the house quieter."

But she's really enjoying two surprising benefits. "Because they sealed the air ducts, they're not sucking air in from the crawl space and my allergies are so much better. I never suspected that!" "And we've always had ants in the spring. Well, we are bug-free. For the first time in 38 years of living in this house."
