Free home heating repair available for low-income Coloradans

May 10, 2017


(DENVER) – May 9, 2017 – Don’t procrastinate - now is the time for low-income Coloradans to take advantage of free home heating system repair available through nonprofit Energy Outreach Colorado (EOC).

Funding is still available through the Crisis Intervention Program (CIP), which provides free home heating system repair and replacement for low-income families and individuals who qualified this year for the Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP). To apply, call toll-free 1-855-469-4328.

Repair services for CIP are provided through a statewide network of licensed, certified and insured HVAC contractors managed by Energy Outreach Colorado. The program does not provide for regular maintenance and servicing of home heating systems.

More than 750 households across Colorado already have benefited from this year’s Crisis Intervention Program, including Ed Degner, a retired senior in Rifle who made-do with a wood-burning stove for two years before getting his broken furnace fixed for free through CIP.
