The Ninth Annual Energy Efficiency Makeover Contest will begin on May 1, 2016. This year, 17 grand prizes valued at up to $5,000 in energy efficiency improvements will be awarded to one member from each of Arkansas' 17 electric distribution cooperatives.

Winners' homes will undergo a comprehensive energy audit to determine the cause of their higher than normal bills and comfort issues. Then, each home will receive a caulking and sealing package to reduce air infiltration, increased attic insulation, an energy-efficient light bulb retrofit, repair and sealing of the heating and cooling system ductwork, and a heating and cooling system tune-up.

The patent pending Spray Pod Mini is a very affordable and effective way for one person to apply an air sealant through a 24oz can. The Spray Pod Mini can provide spray applications for the weatherization professional or any contractor that needs to apply a low pressure SPF in hard to reach areas that are difficult or even prohibitive with a spray foam insulation kit. The spray gun on the Mini has been modified to allow the use of 24oz cans and because it has an adjustable nozzle pattern the operator can go from a bead pattern to a fan pattern in a matter of seconds. This allows the insulation contractor to use the Spray Pod Mini to either insulate or air seal the areas around a residential house such as the air duct boots, attics, crawl spaces and rim joists.

The patent pending Spray Pod Maxi is a very affordable and effective way for two people to apply an air sealant through a 24oz can. The Spray Pod Maxi can provide spray applications for the weatherization professional or any contractor that needs to apply a low pressure SPF in hard to reach areas that are difficult or even prohibitive with regular two component kits. The spray gun on the Maxi has been modified to allow the use of 24oz cans and because it has an adjustable nozzle pattern the operator can go from a bead pattern to a fan pattern in a matter of seconds. This allows the operator to use the Spray Pod Maxi to either insulate or air seal areas around a residential house such as air duct boots, attics, crawl spaces and rim joists.
