Reducing Home Energy Leaks
Every house leaks energy. But where, and how much? That's your money radiating away from your home. Green Acton, the Town of Acton and AB PIP STEM teamed with Sagewell, Inc. to offer a FREE Energy Analysis to Acton homeowners.
If you'd like more information, please send to email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I have to pay for the imaging?
The Great Acton Energy Challenge
Thank you to the over 400 households that signed up before our first target date of March 15. That response was more than enough to have Sagewell and the Town of Acton continue this free offer to as many other households in town who would like to sign up before March 31
How Do I Sign Up?
How Does it Work?
Sagewell technicians will drive by your house in March and take a thermal image. No appointments are necessary and no one will enter your home. After Sagewell completes the analysis of your home, they will let you know how to access the image and a confidential, password-protected report. The drive-by and the report are free. This report will show a color-coded image of the energy leaks in your house. See a sample report.
Sagewell will also be imaging all of the town's municipal buildings and giving the town a free energy analysis of those images.
Who is Sagewell?
Sagewell is a local Massachusetts energy efficiency company that measures heat loss by collecting thermal images. According to the Department of Energy, building envelopes (exterior walls, doors, roofs, chimneys, foundations and sills) are the single largest source of energy loss in residential buildings. Sagewell's Energy Efficiency Analysis Report quickly identifies problem areas in your building envelope and recommends cost-effective energy efficiency retrofit solutions. It is the first step toward a more energy efficient home.
What is the Next Step?
Households who sign up before March 31st will receive their analysis and report this Spring, as part of the first round of analysis. Households that sign up after March, thru mid-April, will still have an analysis done, but it may take longer to process. We recommend you sign up as soon as possible.
Notes about privacy: Sagewell technology cannot see into your home. Vegetation between the road and the house blocks heat coming from the house, and, therefore Sagewell will be unable to measure heat losses from the part of the house that is shielded by vegetation. All measurements are taken from public streets from a vehicle driving past homes at normal street driving speeds; Sagewell does not drive on private driveways. Only the homeowner is allowed to register and view the property report of that home. Sagewell does not sell e-mail addresses or phone numbers. Any communication will be from Sagewell and e-mails from Sagewell can be stopped at any time on request. No company other than Sagewell will contact homeowners unless the homeowner has specifically requested contact from another company. You can remove yourself from any communications from Sagewell at any time, or get any other questions answered by contacting email@example.com
