Schedule a Remote Home Energy Assessment
Being at home so much may increase your utility bills. Let Danvers Electric help you make an energy savings plan.
By using the video feature on your iPhone or Android phone, our contractor Energy New England (ENE) can capture information about your home that they need to create a comprehensive Home Energy Assessment Report. They will set up a call that takes about an hour. They'll email you the report and schedule a follow up call with you to review it and make a short- and long-term plan.
Danvers residents can call ENE at 888-772-4242, email [email protected] or visit ene.org/ene-sustainability/home-energy-assessment/ to schedule a FREE remote home energy assessment today.

*The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measure of the cooling efficiency of a system. The higher the SEER number, the more efficiently the system operates.
**The Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) is used to measure the efficiency of air source heat pumps. The higher the HSPF rating of a unit, the more energy efficient it is.
