Stay comfortable while saving money

Thriftiness is in our DNA here in New England. We pride ourselves in knowing how to make the most of our money.

Making sure your home is as energy efficient as possible is one of the best ways to keep more money in the bank. That’s where a home energy assessment from Homestead Energy Solutions comes in. We are an authorized contractor for Energize CT’s Home energy SolutionsSM, an in-home service providing professional energy assessments and weatherization improvements to help reduce energy use and cost.

You may be wondering, “What is a home energy assessment?” A home energy assessment is a thorough inspection of your entire home by a trained professional. Depending on the size and age of your home, this can take a few hours or up to eight hours.

Here’s some of what we do.

HVAC

  • We’ll test your heating and cooling system and share the results with you. If you need repairs, maintenance or replacement, we’ll give you recommendations based on what we observed.

Blower door test and draft sealing

  • Stopping drafts can cut your heating costs by 10%. We will inspect your windows, doors, attic, exhausts, dryer vents, recessed lights, crawlspaces and ductwork system to find the leaks that cause heat-stealing drafts. We’ll professionally seal any leaks while we’re there. And when we’re done, we’ll test your home again to show you the difference.

Insulation

  • Making sure your home has adequate insulation is the best way to lower your heating and cooling costs. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, having the right amount of insulation can cut your heating and cooling costs by up to 20%. Homestead Comfort is your one-stop-shop for insulation. Not only will we inspect your insulation to see if you need to add more and where you need it, but our experts will suggest the types of insulation that would best fit your needs and budget. We also offer insulation installation by our trained, experienced professionals.

Lighting

  • Are you still using wasteful incandescent bulbs or CFL bulbs that give your home all the coziness of an operating room? LED lights use at least 75% less energy while lasting 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs, and do it with a warm, comfortable light. Our technician will install up to 25 LED lights in your home.

Appliances

  • If you have older appliances, upgrading to new ones can dramatically lower your energy and water costs. We’ll give you recommendations based on your budget and your needs.
