Local Oregon Home Efficiency Contractor Wins National Recognition
GreenSavers USA, a home energy efficiency company with offices in Bend and Portland, Oregon, was recently named an ENERGY STAR® Century Club Contractor by the US Department of Energy. They are one of only two contractors in OR to receive this honor
“This is just the beginning for us, a milestone that we’ve worked extremely hard to achieve,” said Robert Hamerly, owner and operator of GreenSavers. “But we’re planning on doing even more homes this coming year; it’s not the end of the journey.”
This award is reserved for companies like GreenSavers who focus their business on a “whole-house”
Instead of simply focusing on one aspect, like an inefficient furnace or poor insulation in the ceiling, GreenSavers home performance technicians are trained to view a house as a whole system, and to suggest improvements that will work together to give their customers the best results. All GreenSavers technicians are certified through the Building Performance Institute for advanced home energy analysis and installation training.
“Because no two homes are exactly alike, the home performance industry is a complex approach to solving a home’s comfort and energy waste problems,” said Hamerly. “Integrating multiple energy efficiency solutions under one roof is not an easy task. But we stay dedicated and true to our mission when we can make the best unbiased recommendations.”
Within the last few years, government subsidies and tax credits have made it more attractive and easier for homeowners to make improvements that reduce their energy bills and help the environment.
As a result, more and more contractors are trying their hand at home energy remodels. But there is a reason GreenSavers comes out on top.
“We’ve been able to excel in this niche because we are dedicated to this specialty and support this industry,” said GreenSavers Community Outreach & Education Director, Kendra Van Note. “This is not just a fad for us; we’ll be doing this 10 years from now.”
GreenSavers is proud to partner with the Energy Trust of Oregon and is grateful to join the ranks of nationally recognized contractors in the ENERGY STAR® Century Club.
