Yes! In most cases, the long-term cost savings and efficiency resulting from a heat pump installation will offset the initial cost. Electric systems, such as heat pumps and heat pump water heaters, are 3X more efficient than gas-powered systems, and therefore save you money on your utility bills. On average, homeowners save $1k - 2.6k each year on energy bills by upgrading to electric technologies.2

Additionally, applying Inflation Reduction Act incentives toward the products we offer can significantly reduce upfront costs via tax credits and immediate rebates. Our financing partners enable you to get these upgrades with $0 down.

We are currently serving the Boulder-Denver and Boston metro areas with additional U.S. markets opening in 2023.  We serve Boulder, Louisville, Lafayette, Superior, Arvada, Westminster, Golden, Longmont, Ft.

We make home electrification easy. Up until now, electrification has been challenging for homeowners due to the lack of qualified experts in the space. We specialize in electrification, and use deep building science expertise, proprietary technology, and operational best practices to make it easy to confidently electrify everything in your home. Once you dive in and decide to electrify, we take care of the project - tip to tail. 

A key part of a successful electrification project is ensuring that your system design meets your home’s unique needs. Our tech-enabled platform allows us to select and size your equipment for your specific home, thereby ensuring the most comfortable and cost-efficient outcome. 

Most electrification projects also require coordinating with multiple trades to complete a single install - this is tricky! We fully assume the coordination of your project, and stand behind the fact that we team up only with the best contractor partners; vetting them and the finished work product so that you don’t have to. 

Lastly, our deep knowledge of electrification and increased buying power means that you get the highest value for your money and streamlined access to all possible incentives and rebates. Our financing partners provide all this with $0 money down options at low affordable rates. 

So, our friendly team will be with you every step of the way to make electrification easy. Still not convinced? Check out our Google reviews.

No matter what phase of the home electrification journey you’re in, we’re here to help! Here’s how it works: 

  1. Get in Touch - Our Free Estimate Tool is the best way to get started. This form will help you get a sense of the price range for your project, as well as give us a window into your electrification goals and home’s unique needs. Want to chat first? Book a time here.
  2. Virtual Home Comfort Consultation - After you receive your Free Estimate, you’ll be invited to schedule a short virtual introductory conversation with one of our Home Comfort Advisors. We’ll discuss your electrification goals and unique needs in more depth and share our thoughts on possible solutions for your home.
  3. Home Comfort Consultation - Once we’re both aligned to a potential path forward, we will send one of our in-house experts to your home to do a full analysis of your house to verify key project specifications and make sure that solution is viable. Soon after this step is complete, we will provide a comprehensive plan and detailed budget for your project. If everything looks perfect, we will ask you for written confirmation via DocuSign that you want to move forward with the project. 
  4. Project Kickoff - We will then introduce you to the Project Manager who will manage your project through its completion. You get to sit back and relax, as we take care of everything–ordering your equipment, selecting the best contractors for your projects, and overseeing the installation process.
  5. Equipment Education, Rebates, & Financing - After your project is installed, we will help you learn how your new equipment works and make sure it is running properly. We simplify the process of accessing low-cost financing. And we also manage all of the rebate paperwork so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your upgraded home.

The duration of a home electrification installation depends on the size of the installation. Heat Pump installations generally take 2 days, while Heat Pump Water Heaters, EV Chargers, and Induction Stoves can be completed in a single day.

While the actual installation is quick, we recommend scheduling your project ASAP, as equipment ordering and project scheduling typically takes 1 month, or more during the busy season.

We partner with a network of vetted contractors to execute your project. In combination with our team of engineers, building scientists, and customer happiness experts, we manage the entire project from start to finish from initial assessment through post-install support.

We only work with contractors who deliver the highest quality standards in the industry. We have built a strong network of contractors who we work seamlessly with to get your project done as fast as possible. Once we know your unique project needs, we select the contractor who we believe is the best fit for you.

The cost of our projects can vary depending on the size of the unit, the type of equipment included in the project, and the

location of the home. After rebates and incentives, a heat pump generally costs $10,000- $20,000 and a heat pump water heater is about $3,000 to $5,000, reducing the price below comparable gas replacements. And, the long-term cost savings gained from full home electrification also help to offset the initial cost - most homeowners see energy bill reductions of about $1-$2.5k per year, due to increased efficiency.2

We will not charge for your project until after the installation is complete. We also have low-cost financing partners. Colorado's RENU program offers loans starting at 3.5%, with $0 down. For those in Massachusetts, the HEAT loan offers fantastic zero interest financing opportunities
