Home Energy Squad

We do all the work. You get all the savings. Call the Home Energy Squad and we can fix leaky doors, replace an old thermostat and inefficient incandescent bulbs quickly, and more. Efficiently and affordably, we can find air leaks, and provide a consultation on how to make more energy-efficient improvements.

Get Started with a Home Energy Squad enhanced visit - two programs in one!

  1. Schedule an appointment by calling 866-222-4595 or enrolling online (external link).

  2. Receive an in-home visit from local efficiency experts who will perform a Home Energy Audit and identify and discuss the small home improvements that can help you save money. Then, the Home Energy Squad team gets to work installing your preferred energy saving measures.

  3. Pay only $100 and receive energy-saving items such as LED bulbs, programmable thermostats, weather stripping and more. They can perform a blower door test to find those leaks, a thermal audit during winter season, and help you prioritize additional improvements. Installation, labor, and materials are free - that's more than $600 in value!

  4. Have the equipment installed for you in two hours or less.

Energy Saving Tip

Create your own shade by planting a tree in a strategic location in your yard to block sunlight from pouring into your windows. It doesn't get much more green than a tree!

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Install carbon monoxide detectors and annually hire a qualified contractor to inspect your home for proper ventilation.
