Get ready for the cold with the Home Energy Squad

As we creep into winter it is time to start bracing ourselves for colder weather. This year, make sure your home is braced for the cold, too. With a Home Energy Squad visit, you can have peace of mind knowing your home is properly insulated, your furnace is working well and your home is as energy efficient as possible. After a HES visit you will be staying warm and saving money all winter long.

During a HES visit, an energy auditor will come out to inspect your house and create a customized report with recommendations that will make your home more energy efficient. They will also provide instant energy savings by installing free materials like LED lights, door and attic weather stripping and high-efficiency water fixtures.

Thanks to the City’s partnership with HES, Bloomington residents can get a visit for a discounted rate. Two types of HES visits are available: the energy saver visit (for homes built in or after 2000) and the energy planner visit (for homes built before 2000). Visit to learn more about resident rates. If you are ready to schedule your visit, go to or call 651-328-6220.
