You reuse. You re-purpose. You recycle. Is your home as efficient as you are? Now is a great time for a home energy audit. H.E.L.P Home Energy Life Performance uses a whole-house approach to analyze your home and generate a report showing all the steps you can take to improve efficiency. We’ll show you how to eliminate drafts, keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, and improve the safety and health of your home.

3.14 – it's Pi Day

3.14 – such a great number. Where would circles be without it? Which brings Home Energy to mind… yes it does… a home is full of circles. Your home’s energy efficiency will benefit from the sealing of many “circles” around the house: can light fixtures, ducts, vents and bath fans. Our Home Performance Assessment will pinpoint your areas of greatest savings.

Now go have a piece of pi!

What's Under There?

Most people don’t inspect underneath their homes on a regular basis. If they did, they’d be surprised – maybe even shocked – by what they found there. Common problems include huge air leaks (read: heat leaks), disconnected, pinched or blocked ductwork, and missing or torn insulation.

The H.E.L.P. team is in a crawlspace somewhere nearly every day of the week. We’ve spotted and corrected thousands of trouble spots like these:

H.E.L.P. at Street of Dreams

H.E.L.P. was in the concession booth at the Street of Dreams, serving cool drinks and snacks on a warm day. We were there to check out all the latest home performance technology, but were also inspired by the beauty and design.

Recessed Light Cover

Two birds with one stone?

Two solutions with one simple product

Innovative fire protection products and solutions to keep insulation away from recessed lights and to reduce energy loss through light fixtures The Tenmat FF130E Recessed Light Cover has been specifically designed to keep insulation away from standard recessed lights.

The cover is made out of fire resistant mineral wool material and maintains sufficient space around the fixture for proper functionality when surrounded by insulation.

The durable and lightweight covers will significantly reduce thermal loss through the light and condensation on roof timbers.

Chimney Balloon

The Chimney BallonSimply put, the Chimney Balloon is a product designed to stop heat from escaping up the chimney during cold months, and cold air from leaking out of the home during summer months. It’s a specially engineered polyethylene bag-like product available in hundreds of sizes. It’s easily installed by inserting the bag into the chimney flue, and inflating the bag until the edges are securely sealed against all sides of the flue. The balloon requires a yearly maintenance check, and can be effective for more than five years.

The Chimney Balloon is a simple solution for an expensive problem.

We have them in stock in our Portland showroom, come by and get yours today.

A visit from Washington DC

What ENERGY STAR Washington DC is saying about H.E.L.P. Group, Inc…

….I had the unique opportunity to visit two homes in the program – jobs done by H.E.L.P. and the amazing Berenice! Nothing is more fun than to go see jobs done and/or underway… as I’ve stated many times, contractors are the heart of home performance – after meeting HPCG contractors and seeing Berenice’s work – I know OR is going to succeed.
Well done all around! When can I come back?
