Saving You Energy with Every Step

The Home Energy Assessment Process

Each Step Saves You Energy

When you schedule a Home Energy Solutions Assessment and Equipment Check, we’ll send a team of two to your home to do an analysis of how your home is using and losing energy, and we’ll take steps to help you increase your energy efficiency and decrease your monthly bills.

On-the-Spot Savings

This appointment is valued at over $1,000 – and the average homeowner saves about $500 in fuel and electricity expenses per year! If you meet certain income eligibility requirements, we can help you get equipment upgrades such as furnaces, boilers, hot water heaters and windows at no cost.

How We Do It. Step By Step.

Step #1

Upon arrival, our team will do a walk through to identify obvious efficiency opportunities. We’ll replace any incandescent bulbs with LEDs and we’ll install low-flow aerators, showerheads and hot water pipe insulation.

Finally, we’ll present all of our findings to you. You’ll see how much energy and money you’re saving as a result of the appointment. We’ll also review any further recommendations and detail expected return on your investment. If you move forward with any recommendations (entirely up to you), we will work with you to secure any rebates or incentives.
