Shout-out to City of Milwaukee's Environmental Collaboration Office (ECO) for creating a new video promoting the benefits of getting an energy assessment of your home, featuring both green homeowner Steve & Ann O'Connell as well as Green Homeowners United's Kevin Kane!
We're on a mission: help thousands of people reduce energy waste in their home and cut carbon emissions.
Our team of energy experts, contractors and homeowners are excited to welcome you to what we believe is the most important means of fighting climate change there is, all while making your utility bills smaller and increasing your comfort at home.
Reduce Utility Bills
Green home upgrades are all about increasing the efficiency of your home. By reducing wasted and lost energy, our goal is to help decrease your utility bills.
We use scientific evaluation methods to give your home a Home Energy Score and recommend upgrades to your home to reduce your utility bills and help you go green.
Many homes feel drafty or have cold pockets, causing you to have to crank up the heat or AC due to inefficiencies. These areas of lost energy can be upgraded or fixed to make sure your home is effectively circulating air without wasting it out of gaps, cracks, or exposed foundations and attics.
"Green Homeowners United makes it easy and convenient to do the right thing. You can invest in climate-saving home renovations without increasing your monthly bills! They do the analysis to make sure that your utility savings cover the increase in your mortgage payments. It's a win-win!”
- Cheryl M
"I am SO thankful to have been connected with Green Homeowners United. I only have a couple of months of comparison, but so far, after insulating my attic (with more energy efficiency projects to go) I am using a THIRD less natural gas to warm my home. I completed the project with $0 upfront cost and now I am saving monthly both on my mortgage and on my utility bill. Combating climate change doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg, it can even save you money."
- Kate B
"Our home is so much cooler, quieter, and less humid thanks to the speedy work of the Green Homeowners United team! In just two days they provided extensive air sealing and insulation services, the cost of which is already paying for itself in energy savings!!! And, WOW, can we feel the difference!!!"
- Heather T
"I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to increase the energy efficiency of their home and reduce their usage of fossil fuels. You will have excellent support, lower energy bills and a lower monthly mortgage payment."
