Ways to Get a Home Energy Assessment

Energy savings uncovered
The recent cold snap across the area and shorter winter days mean Central Oregonians are more reliant on heating sources, lighting and electronics. With the shift in the weather, people become more aware of energy usage and are susceptible to higher utility bills.

Looking to Buy a Home in the Winter Months?

The advantages of purchasing when most people aren't
Shorter days, the crisp air with twinges of bitterness, traces of white appearing in the Cascades and the barren trees are the annual indications that winter is tiptoeing its way into Central Oregon. Before long, as in its usual fashion, winter will no longer hold off its arrival and Central Oregon will be in full swing of the season, complete with the opening of Mt. Bachelor.

Home Energy Score

Proposed mandate would shine a light on home energy use
The City of Bend's Climate Action Steering Committee has been diligently working on the Community Climate Action Plan, which will help guide the City—and the community—in pursuit of goals to reduce fossil fuel use by 40 percent by the year 2030 and by 70 percent by the year 2050.

Redmond: The Heart of Central Oregon

The rising star of housing affordability
Redmond exudes affordability in the Central Oregon real estate market. Deschutes County as a whole has seen and continues to experience tremendous population growth; which in turn has spurred growth in the employment sector, household formation and the real estate market in general.

Winterizing the Home

Cold weather doesn't have to mean higher energy bills
