Get your Home Energy Check-Up!


In just six short months, the Local Energy Alliance  (LEAP) has performed 1,000 Home Energy Check-ups in central and northern Virginia. Arlington County has partnered with LEAP, a non-profit energy conservation organization based in Charlottesville, to promote residential energy efficiency within the County. The group has worked with its contractor network to perform over 600 in-home energy assessments (full energy audits) and over 100 less intensive Home Energy Check-ups in Arlington.

Elizabeth Zelle of Arlington is one happy customer of the LEAP Home Energy Check-up program.  Zelle echoes the sentiments of many of the 1,000 homeowners who have had the check-ups performed: “This is such an informative service. Someone who knows what they are doing comes to your home to help you. Everyone should do this.”

When you book a Home Energy Check-up with the simple online scheduler, LEAP sends one of its rock star Energy Coaches out to your house. They’ll do a walk-through evaluation of your home’s energy efficiency potential, install energy saving products like CFL light bulbs, smart power strips, pipe insulation and more as needed  for your home.

For only $45 that’s a bargain! This would normally be about a $250 value of goods, savings and professional advice but because LEAP is a Participating Contractor in the Dominion Virginia Power Home Energy Check-up program we can offer you this deal.

LEAP hears rave reviews from their 1,000 Check-up clients all the time, including this one seen on Facebook the other day: “Shayne Sander visited us today and we are so excited to implement his suggestions and start saving money on utility bills. I thought it would be the usual stuff, but it wasn’t. He pointed out things we had never heard about before.”

Shayne is one of our Energy Coaches, along with Michael Hogan (Zelle’s Energy Coach) and Corey Hatcher in northern Virginia and in central Virginia by Guy Caroselli, Chris Crehan and John Dolan.
