April 22 - 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Benton PUD in Prosser

Improve the efficiency of your HVAC system today and save money
Did you know that over 40% of your electric bill goes towards heating and cooling? Your ducts carry air from your central HVAC unit to all part of your home and back to heat or cool your home. Improperly sealed ducts can result in a 20% loss of heat or air from your system. Contact a Benton PUD Approved Contractor today to learn more about if duct sealing can help save you energy and money. Benton PUD offers a $400 rebate on duct sealing.
Proper tree care prevents power outages
