Home Energy Saver

The Department of Energy has a variety of resources that are free to use to the public. One of these resources is the Home Energy Saver. This is a great resource for contractors to use to show home-owners how much they could be saving on energy costs with various upgrades to their existing home. The following image is an example of the results that are returned from using the Home Energy Saver, click to enlarge.

Yearly Cost

 

This tool is great for giving home-owners an estimate on the dollars they could be saving with the upgrades that you can provide to their home. The Home Energy Saver can be very detailed in its input criteria, down to the number of light fixtures & types of light bulbs in your customer’s home. Simply, the more information you can input into the system the more accurate the estimates will be.

If you are a professional energy auditor, this tool already endorses your services after every estimate is calculated by letting the user know the importance of having a home energy audit. You can use this to provide energy saving estimates to your customers or refer them to the site for their own personal use. Either way, your customers will benefit and so will you when they make upgrades that save.


Metal Building Insulation

Metal building insulation is used in a variety of buildings including entertainment venues. One entertainment venue that uses metal building insulation is the one in this Super Bowl commercial that was aired in Canada. Service Partners has the materials & equipment that will help you & your customers insulate metal buildings nationwide.

 


National Mall Gets LED Lights

 

Last night the Energy Secretary brought new energy savings to the National Mall by turning on the LED lights in 174 vintage Olmsted lampposts that light the area. According to the Department of Energy, the bulbs are expected to last 25 years & save 65% on energy bill$. This is a great stride by our government to be more energy efficient and save tax payers money over time. You can help your customers save money by following the Department of Energy’s example by installing energy efficient lighting in homes & offices.
