Improving home energy efficiency has a huge environmental impact. That's why we most of us started doing this work, after all. (Making homes more comfortable and helping people save money turn out to be a pretty terrific side benefits.)

Still, it's easy to get discouraged. If you do, take a look at the Mother Nature Network's quick look back at the past four decades of America's modern environmental movement. We've come a long way since the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970!

It’s been 43 years since the first Earth Day. On that day – April 22, 1970 – 20 million Americans took to streets, parks, and auditoriums across the country to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment. It was the birth of a movement that continues to challenge the status quo and push us to take responsibility for our impact on the environment.

This campaign from the U.S. Department of Energy encourages us all to take an "energy pledge," making a simple commitment to use less energy.

Don't be fooled: the recent drop in oil prices did little to relieve this winter's record heating costs. 

Have you seen the series of ads from Allstate that focus on worst-case-scenario home situations in order to emphasize the importance of a good home insurance policy? There are a number of ads in the series, but the one that caught our attention focuses on water heaters.

Evergreen Home Performance is proud to announce an innovative new insulation product that makes homes warm and “toasty” and revives the baking career of CEO Richard Burbank.

Yesterday was the final test-out for my attic insulation & basement encapsulation project. See, an Evergreen Home Performance project isn't really over until the Energy Adviser reviews the project, so Jessie came over to see how things looked.

The short answer: They look pretty terrific.



Come see us today!

We'll be at the Samoset from 2-7, eager to talk to homeowners about energy efficiency contracting. Come say hello and sign up for a FREE consult.
