FORT WORTH, TX — Brett Hobson, owner of Comfort Experts, Inc., said he is formulating plans to offer homeowners a free, high-efficiency heating and cooling system for participating in a “Home Energy Conservation Program.” Hobson hopes to show homeowners how much money they can save on their energy bills by installing high-efficiency systems.

The program will be open to a limited number of participants who must be homeowners, plan on staying in their current residence for two years after installation of the system, currently have a system over eight years old or not functioning correctly, and have the desire to “start saving on utility bills.”

Hobson said his company will perform a survey on each selected home. “This thorough analysis accurately pinpoints what is needed to provide optimum comfort and minimize the amount that you [homeowner] have to pay the utility company,” he said.
