The most cost-effective way to give your home an energy “check-up” is by signing up for the HES program.
A Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified energy technician will visit your home and perform an energy efficiency assessment. In addition, he may seal ducts and air leaks and perform a range of energy saving measures (see below). Your BPI technician will provide you with the results of his “check-up”. He will explain the tests taken and the upgrades performed. He will make recommendations for energy efficiency upgrades and counsel you on short- and long-term options, including a cost/benefit analysis that will help you reduce your energy bills.
The technician will provide you with all the available rebates and the best available financing options to do further energy upgrades that will increase the energy efficiency of your home.
Your personalized home energy “check up” includes:
- Air Sealing/Weatherstripping—A blower-door test will be performed to identify air leakage and critical drafts points in your home.
According to test results the technician will professionally seal major air leaks during his visits.
- Duct Sealing—A duct blaster test will be performed that analyzes air and leaks in your ductwork system. Technicians will seal any significant leaks, if conditions meet air flow standards, reducing your A/C and heating costs.
- Appliances Inspection—The technician will review your appliances for efficiency levels and offer rebates for Energy Star appliances, when applicable.
- Insulation Evaluation—Insulation upgrades will be recommended including cost saving incentives and rebates.
- Hot Water Saving Measures—The technician will install faucet aerators, low-flow showerheads, and insulate hot water pipes where needed, helping you save on your heating bill and conserve water.
- Heating and Cooling System Evaluation—The technician can recommend further testing and offer rebates for qualifying A/C and Heat Pump systems.
- Lighting—Installation of up to 19 CFL & 6 LED (UI) or 25 CFL & 6 LED (EVERSOURCE) new energy efficient bulbs.
- Rebates, Tax Credit and Financing Options—Click here to see all rebates offered by HES program.
- Conservation Tips—Technician will discuss and recommend online resources.
- A “kitchen table wrap-up”—The technician will discuss the “health” of your home, the work performed, recommendations for further energy efficient improvements and all rebates/incentives along with the most cost effective financing available; with the goal of making your home “healthier” and helping you save money and energy.

*At market prices, the services offered by HES would cost the average home owner over $1000. For example, the blower door test and duct test (per system) alone typically cost $250 each.
*Please note: If you have signs of asbestos or black mold, see examples below: you would not receive the full benefits of the HES program since we will not be able to run a blower door test. Please look for asbestos-like material and mold in your home before scheduling (usually found in basements and attics).
