Energy House Party

Host an energy house party! Invite friends, fam­ily, and neigh­bors to your home, and a local energy expert will use your house to demon­strate effi­ciency con­cepts and con­duct a sim­ple energy assess­ment. You don’t need to pro­vide any­thing, just your home (single family homes or residential buildings with one to three units) and a few guests!

What Happens at a House Party?

Once you decide to host an energy house party, we’ll work with you to pick a date and time that works for you. A certified energy analyst will arrive at your home at the scheduled time and talk with you about what areas of your home they’ll need access to, and how long everything should take.

The analyst will workHousePartyPic with you to identify some general elements of energy efficiency, as well as any obvious strengths or weaknesses of your home.

Next, your guests will arrive, and the energy analyst will lead everyone through a short energy assess­ment of your home, using excit­ing tools like blower doors and infrared cam­eras to point out areas where your home is los­ing energy and what kind of projects could help you save money. (Click here to see what type of tests the analyst will run.)

Why host a party?

An energy assessment is a great way to get to know your house, no matter its age. An energy expert will help you understand exactly how your home is saving or losing energy. Often, these assessments cost you money. When you host a house party, it’s free!

Valuable energy reporHouseParty_Homet: After the house party, you’ll also get a free writ­ten report with the complete results and rec­om­men­da­tions of the assess­ment, from air sealing to high-efficiency appliances to do-it-yourself improvements. You’re under no obligation to make any changes.

Rebates and incentives: The report will include avail­able incen­tives and rebates to off­set the cost of any improve­ments that you choose to make.  Further, the report esti­mates your antic­i­pated energy and cost sav­ings and how long it will take you to earn back what you spend on the improvements, based on the energy sav­ings you will achieve.

Spread the word on savings: At the end of your house party, your guests will be invited to schedule an energy assessment of their own home or to sign up to host their own house par­ties. So, you’re not only getting to know your own house, but you’re connecting your friends and neighbors to resources they can use to improve their own homes and lower their energy bills.

Help your community and Green Madison: If that’s not enough, do it for your community! Every house party that we have helps encourage households in Madi­son to reduce energy con­sump­tion through making energy efficiency improvements, which moves our community closer to a $5 mil­­lion energy prize.
