Welcome to Charlottesville Gas customers! 

Check out these 3 ways to get your home ready for winter.

LEAP Home Energy Checkup

Isn’t it time for your home to get the same care and attention you give your body and your car?

Get started with a LEAP Home Energy Checkup which combines our Healthy and Efficient Home Evaluation with complimentary, energy-saving products directly installed by our experts so you can immediately save energy and money. You’ll get an evaluation of your home’s energy efficiency, the advice of one of LEAP’s Energy Coaches, energy efficient lightbulb exchanges, pipe insulation, door weatherization and more — plus a checklist of additional energy saving measures for your home.

The value of this package is estimated at over $300 in goods, savings, and professional advice but with LEAP’s participation in the Dominion Home Energy Check-up instant cash rebate program our price to homeowners is only $45 ($35 if your neighbors participate, too. Contact us for details).
