Read the latest from the Evergreen team.

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.

I've been waiting for this for years. Talking to homeowners about the benefits of attic insulation and basement encapsulation, and wishing for those improvements for my own old house. And now, I have finally Evergreened My Home.

Evergreen Home Performance is growing! Since 2006, we've helped hundreds of homeowners gain comfort and cut costs. Along the way, we've trained dozens of home performance professionals.

Now it's time to train a few more: We're hiring new Field Technicians in the Portland-Brunswick area and in our home base of Rockland, Maine.

What a difference a week makes! My basement encapsulation project isn't quite finished - spray foam insulation is happening today - but it's already been an incredible transformation.

It’s confession time. This is my basement, before Evergreen came along. You might be impressed that my 1856 basement has a vapor barrier. I sure was, until I learned a thing or two about vapor barriers and realized that whoever installed mine did it all wrong.

This piece of plastic only covers the floor. A good vapor barrier extends up the walls to protect against all moisture, whether it evaporates up through the ground or weeps in through the foundation.

You know what they say about the cobbler’s children?

Well, starting on Monday, this cobbler’s kid is getting some new shoes. A year and a half after Phase 1 of my Evergreen Home Performance project, we’re starting Phase 2.
