Last year, airplanes flew over Cedar Falls at night taking special thermal images of the town. Over the last five months, the images have been compiled into an interactive online map to help CFU customers identify heat loss from their home or property.
You can look up your address and see how much heat is escaping compared to properties around you. If your home is losing a lot of heat, CFU has tips to help insulate your home that will help save energy and money.
The project is especially timely as this is Earth Week and many of us are especially eco-conscious. Since I live in Waterloo, this map doesn’t help me save energy, but I did buy sulfate-free shampoo yesterday and dropped off my recyclables – so I’m doing my part!
