A Virtual pre-assessment to Home Energy Solutions is now being offered as a safe, convenient first step for you to make energy-saving improvements. This pre-assessment is available through live, virtual discussions with a technician at no cost. Connect with us to learn more about how we can help you reduce your energy costs.
Whether it's called an "audit" or a "checkup", an energy assessment can:
- Pinpoint where your house is losing energy
- Determine if your heating and cooling systems are operating efficiently
- Show you ways to save energy and make your home more comfortable
- Identify improvements that will save you the most money
Energy Assessments should be performed by professional home energy auditors. With their specialized training and equipment, they can identify critical air leaks and may also conduct important safety tests on your furnace and water heater.
A findings report lists recommended energy-saving improvements and information about rebates and financing.
Not only do we find ways to save, but we help you get the work done. Our Home Energy Solutions® programs do some of the work the actual day of the visit. These on-the-spot services jump start your savings.
