The City of Coppell is offering a DIY class on how to make your residence more energy efficient, since a building can contribute up to 40% of electrical use in the summer heat.
The Do-it-Yourself Energy Savers class will be held on July 12 at 6:30pm at Fire Station 3, 133 Parkway Blvd. in Coppell.
The instructor for the class is Michael Arellano, the City of Coppell Chief Building Officer and member of the ecoCoppell Green Team. Mr. Arellano will cover home weatherization, home energy audits, energy efficiency products, and updates on building codes. Many tips for homeowners will be shared such as, well-placed deciduous (leaf-losing) trees on the east, south, and west sides of a home will shade it from summer sun and lower air conditioning costs by 10 to 50 percent.
Participants will receive a DUI energy saver kit along with the information on how to do simple projects at home to reduce energy use and save money on their electrical bill. The class is open to the public and free of charge. Call City of Coppell Community Programs with questions about the class, 972-462-5191.
