HEAT Squad

Efficient. Healthy. Safe. Affordable.

HEAT Squad offers comprehensive low-cost energy audits and same-day energy audit reports, as well as objective advice and access to financial incentives available through Efficiency Vermont.

We are committed to helping Vermonters identify improvements that will save them the maximum amount on energy costs (its rarely what they think!) and map out an affordable financing plan that will immediately enable them to pay less on their energy bills each month.

We connect clients to local contractors to complete energy improvements, keeping our interest unbiased; our goal is simply to best serve the needs of homeowners.

Our clients save an average 32% on their heating costs (and hundreds of gallons of fuel) – 900 dollars – each year!

In addition, improvements made through our program improve air quality, discourage pest infestations, reduce outside noise, and allow customers to live in a more comfortable home without drafts and a consistent temperature throughout the home.

We provide audits in Rutland, Addison, Bennington, Windsor, Essex, Orleans, and Caledonia counties.

What are the Benefits of Home Energy Improvements?
