a Michigan 501(c)3 Non-Profit, working to help you keep your family healthy and safe

Welcome to Great Lakes Energy Service’s Snug Home Program!

Great Lakes Energy Service Inc (GLES) is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization that was formed in 2008. Our mission is to provide energy management education and services that seriously improve the comfort, health, safety, and energy costs of the families we serve.

The Snug Home Program works with local utility companies through a partnership with Efficiency United to provide very valuable testing and energy efficiency upgrades to manufactured homes. We’re able to do this at virtually no cost to the resident or community when they qualify because the participating utility provider pays for the entire process.

If your home qualifies, you may receive the following services at no cost:

  • Building airflow testing – This allows us to measure how much air is moving through your home, which has a lot to do with your family’s comfort and energy costs.
  • Air sealing – Once we know where air leakage is happening we can seal windows, outlet and switch boxes, and other areas allowing the outside to come in when you don’t want it to.
  • Duct repair and sealing – Often, we find that ducts are disconnected where they meet your floor. This allows a lot of heat and cooling to escape, leaving you to pay for it without getting the comfort you’re shooting for.
  • Faucet Aerators, High Efficiency Massaging Shower Heads, and Pipe Wrap – These items can be installed if you have a gas water heater. They increase your faucet and shower performance while decreasing the amount of gas you’re using to heat the water, saving you money on heating costs.
  • Furnace test and clean – We make sure your furnace is currently providing heat, we check for excess carbon monoxide in the air, and we clean your furnace cabinet and blower motor.
  • Carbon Monoxide Detector – We’ll also install a brand new carbon monoxide detector in qualified homes.

Again, all of this is cost-free to residents and their communities as long as they have a valid account from the participating utility.
