What Customers are Saying
I was blown away by all the light bulbs I received, and by how thorough it was. They checked everything from the attic to the basement... It was more than I expected
It's really a no-brainer. Why would anybody not want to do it? Nothing to lose! It's an amazing benefit that everybody should take advantage of.
I just rarely find people that are happy and into what they are doing, and they were into it. That was a great part of the experience.
Just after we moved in, we noticed it was drafty in a lot of rooms. Having this home energy assessment has been really fantastic as a way to take some steps to save more energy, and to take advantage of the incentives that are offered.
It was a wonderful experience all around… It taught me much more about my home. We notice a lot less drafts, [and] my electric bill has definitely gone down.
Everyone involved in the process from the [Energy Specialist] to the contractors was very professional and knowledgeable. Thank you!
