Make the world a Greener Place
Saving the world is our ultimate goal, but since that might sound a bit too lofty, we’re starting with one home and one community at a time.
Our aim is to make it simple for you to have a greener home, and save some green too. We figure, the easier we make it for homeowners to be more energy efficient, the more they will—and that’s good for all of us.
Save More Than Energy
HomeWorks Energy is here to save you money, energy and time, so you can both be green and save green in the simplest way possible.
a vision for every homeowner
After discovering the long-awaited new addition on his home was using significantly more energy to heat than the rest of his house, HomeWorks Energy founder, Scott Veggeberg, was inspired to learn about how energy is consumed in homes. Wanting to help others understand their own home energy loss, Veggeberg established HomeWorks Energy Inc. in 2008.
Now, we continue to grow every year, conducting more and more Home Energy Assessments, which as of the end of 2017, has saved Massachusetts homeowners $35 million. And for 2018, we plan to more than double those savings.
For the past seven years, Massachusetts has ranked #1 in energy efficiency out of all 50 states. As the largest Mass Save® partner and Home Performance Contractor in Massachusetts, we’re proud to be leading the U.S. in energy efficiency while reducing our customer’s energy costs and carbon footprint.
What is the Mass Save® Program?
Mass Save® is an initiative sponsored by Massachusetts’ natural gas and electric utilities and energy efficiency service providers, including The Berkshire Gas Company, Blackstone Gas Company, Cape Light Compact, Columbia Gas of Massachusetts, Eversource, Liberty Utilities, National Grid, and Unitil. The sponsors of Mass Save® work closely with the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources to provide a wide range of services, incentives, trainings, and information promoting energy efficiency that help residents and businesses manage energy use and related costs.
What is a Home Energy Assessment?
A Home Energy Assessment is an analysis of your home’s energy consumption that doesn’t cost you anything. We’ll evaluate your house, take you through a report outlining areas of inefficiency, then explain our recommendations on how to make your home more efficient in the most affordable way.
How invasive is a Home Energy Assessment?
Short answer: Not very. We’ve seen many, many homes in our time and equip our Energy Specialists with tools to get around those challenging home obstacles. No worries if you are in the middle of moving, have kids, or your house is just a little messy. We’ll work around it.
What if I don't want to do any of the recommendations?
That’s not a problem at all. The energy assessment is 100% no obligation, so you can feel free to pick and choose which work you’d like to get done, or choose to have none done at all.
What if I can't afford to make my home more energy efficient?
Just having a no-cost Home Energy Assessment will make your home more efficient. Through our partnership with Mass Save® we’re able to install no-cost LED light bulbs, low flow showerheads, and programmable thermostats. You’ll also have access to Mass Save® incentives and rebates on energy efficiency improvement you decide to make.
Do you do the work yourself?
Yes. We do all Home Energy Assessments, air sealing, HVAC, and insulation in-house. We also currently partner with industry-leading companies to offer solar and other additional services.
What's the catch?
Well, you’ve already paid for this. There’s a small fee on your utility bill called, “Energy Efficiency Chg.,” which contributes to the funding of Mass Save® offers. Signing up for a Home Energy Assessment is how you can cash in on those payments.
What if I’ve already had an assessment performed?
Massachusetts residents are eligible for a Home Energy Assessment every two years. We’ll be there for you when you’re eligible again.
