Home Energy Audit
We sponsor a residential energy conservation program that helps you conserve energy at your home or apartment. It is quick, convenient and, best of all, it is available to you at no additional cost. The toll-free Energy Hotline (1-888-772-4242) is available to residential customers Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Representatives will provide assistance for your questions on energy conservation, energy efficiency, conservation measures such as insulation, or information on specific end-uses of energy like appliances.
The goal of the Energy Hotline is to provide you with the tools and services necessary to help you make better informed decisions regarding energy usage and energy efficiency.
Among the tools available free of charge to residential customers through the Energy Hotline are:
- Objective over-the-phone technical assistance
- Conservation booklets
- Literature and tips on energy conservation practices and measures
- Do-It-Yourself energy audit CD’s
- Energy Star appliance information
- Referral to energy conservation websites
- In-home energy audit services
If you and your specialist determine that a home energy audit is needed, then you will be able to schedule a visit during your call.
The home energy audit is performed by a State-certified Energy Advisor, who will compile a comprehensive energy evaluation report. The report will identify the measures you could take to enhance the energy efficiency of your home and, potentially, ways to reduce your energy costs.
Infrared Thermography is now part of Hudson Light’s energy audits. The process utilizes technology that measures surface temperatures to detect heat loss in your home. With infrared scans, you’ll be able to tell if you need additional caulking, weatherstripping, window glazing, etc.
As always, questions about your actual electric bill will be handled at our Main Office, 978-568-8736.
