Home Improvement Program
"I was really impressed with the service and the information I received. We will be getting a free inspection of our A/C ducts, a free inspection of our central A/C unity, a free install of a Nest Thermostat and a free install of a Smart Irrigation Control Unit to replace our old mechanical one. This is really a no brainer for anyone in Pasadena with an older home." -- Home Improvement Program Participant, District 5
To ensure the safety of program staff and our customers, the utility is dedicated to supporting social distancing and vendors will adhere to specific safety guidelines in response to COVID-19. Read our safety guidelines here.
