A Region 8 homeowner received word that their house is getting a makeover.

Tim Oppenheim’s home in Jonesboro won an Energy Efficiency Make Over.

Representatives from Craighead Electric and Arkansas Electric Cooperative went to Oppenheim’s and did an energy audit. Some of the discoveries they found stunned him.

“We had not nearly enough insulation,” Oppenheim said. “We had 15% leakage on our duct work. So, they are going to seal up the ductwork around where we had openings that go to the outside.”

The representatives will put together a plan for his home and come back and make the changes.

There were 17 winners in the state of Arkansas.
