How it Works

Home Energy Squad 

Home Energy Squad can help you save money and energy – a positive impact on your home and the environment. Our team is here to find the right visit for your needs.

Virtual Visit

A no-cost virtual visit is your entry point and can help you discover immediate low and no-cost energy savings solutions, and plan for future efficiency projects when the time comes. A visit typically lasts 1–2 hours. Virtual visit customers will receive the following:

  • A pre-visit questionnaire
  • Virtual audio/video home walk-through
  • A customized report with recommendations and next steps

Phone consultation available if preferred.

Once your virtual visit is complete our team of experts will help you take your next step. For some, it could be an in-home visit, for others we will connect you to our energy advisors who can assist you with upgrades, financing, and more.

In-home Visit

If our virtual visit team thinks your home could benefit from an in-home visit, we’ll connect you to the best visit for your needs. You pay only for the trip charge, and we pay for the materials and installation labor. We offer two types of in-home visits:

For homes built 2000-present, mobile homes, condos, and renters:

Energy Saver Visit -- $70

A two-person team will come to your home and help:

  • Install energy-saving materials such as: LED lightbulbs, door and attic hatch weather stripping, programmable thermostat, and high-efficiency water fixtures
  • Assess and adjust the water heater temperature
  • Determine next steps

For homes older than 2000:

Energy Planner Visit -- $100

A two-person team will come to your home and help:

  • Install energy-saving materials such as: LED lightbulbs, door and attic hatch weather stripping, programmable thermostat, and high-efficiency water fixtures
  • Assess and adjust the water heater temperature
  • Perform a blower door test to measure your home for air leaks
  • Complete an insulation inspection of your attic and walls using an infrared camera
  • Perform a safety test on your home’s heating system and water heater
  • Determine next steps

Plus: FREE in-home Home Energy Squad visits are available to income-qualified households.

Support and Guidance for Major Home Energy Improvements

For some, you will go right from our virtual visit and be connected to our team of energy advisors. Others will be connected to our advisors after your in-home visit.

If your home has an opportunity for significant savings through larger home improvement projects such as additional insulation, attic air sealing, or replacing old heating equipment—our advisors make these larger steps easy by connecting you with a vetted list of qualified contractors, specialized financing and utility rebates.
