Thermal imaging company Sagewell, Inc. is offering Dedham homeowners a no-cost, comprehensive home energy assessments to save energy and money. But this is no ordinary home energy assessment.
This program uses exterior thermal images to pinpoint exactly where heat is leaking to make the most effective improvements possible. The program is available to all qualifying Dedham homeowners. Homeowners can request their no-cost comprehensive energy assessment and thermal images at www.sagewell.com.
“We are excited about the potential for this program to reduce the energy consumption in Dedham”, says Brad Harkavy, COO of Sagewell Inc. “Thermal images are a real eye opener. Seeing the thermal image report for my house convinced me that I should blow insulation into my home. Something I have been thinking about for 14 years, but never acted on”.
Seeing energy leaking from the house is the first step. Then conducting an in-home energy assessment comes next. It allows homeowners to fully realize the energy savings in their homes.
To get started, homeowners can go to www.sagewell.com, enter their address in the “Find your home” box, complete the form to request thermal images and a utility-sponsored in-home energy assessment, and then tell friends and neighbors!
Sagewell, Inc. drove through Dedham this past winter with a hybrid vehicle equipped with thermal heat loss sensors to help homeowners see where their homes may be leaking energy. (Some Dedham buildings do not have images because of blocked views from roadways due to trees, bushes or fences between the home and road, or because some streets in Dedham were not covered.) Sagewell’s thermal images show only heat loss from buildings. They are privacy-protected and available only to homeowners. They are not shared with any third parties without the homeowner’s permission.
There is no cost to homeowners for this program. The in-home energy assessment part of the program, which is already fully paid through utility bill charges, gives qualified homeowners access to substantially discounted energy efficiency products and services, including a 75% insulation discount (up to $2,000) and access to 0% interest loans for qualified improvements such as single pane window replacement and heating system replacement.
After submitting a request for their thermal images at http://www.sagewell.com, homeowners will be notified via email when their thermal image report is ready. They will also be contacted (if they want) by an approved in-home energy assessment company who will carry out the no-cost utility sponsored in-home assessment.
“We hope that people will act quickly to sign up for the program” says Brad. “We want homeowners to save money by making energy improvements before the end of December so they qualify for 2012 utility sponsored improvements.”
