Eversource Utility Program
When a buyer starts to question about the utility expenses, you know you have a serious buyer. I always inform people it is hard to compare from the current owners to yourself as your life styles may be completely different.
The different fuels available to a home include oil, gas, electric, solar, wood, and geothermal.
When working with a buyer, I tell them they can call the utility company and inform them that you are interested in 123 Main Street and want to know the cost to heat the property. The utility company will give you the average for the last 12 months. Eversource will also give you the cost of gas if the home is connected to it.
Instead of using the estimate of what the seller used, I am sure you would prefer an energy efficient home. Eversource now has a program to change things for you. They send out a licensed contractor through Eversource to examine the home. This process is estimated about 4 hours and will cost up to $174. Within a week, you will receive a report from Eversource detailing what steps to take to make your home more energy efficient. The great thing is that Eversource has been paying up for 50% of the project, but this is not guaranteed. The Eversource licensed contractor informed me that many homes just require the small modifications made during the audit and nothing else except sit back and ream the savings.
Hey Seller: Why would you want to do this energy audit? You will receive a report from Eversource that you can hand out to your potential buyers showing them what it will cost to live in this energy efficient home.

Now that I have been in the business for over 22 years, April 1st was my anniversary, I continue to show that I am not your typical real estate agent. I am going to take care of your Eversource’s Energy Audit. That is correct, you will not receive any expense for doing the audit, only the work to complete the efficiency of your home. The energy audit will seal cracks where heat is escaping, determine the amount of insulation, and supply you with all new LED bulbs for each fixture. How can you go wrong?
I wish I am to assist my friends that receive power from Groton, Bozrah, or Norwich Utilities, but i am unable to.
For me to pick up the expense, you must call me to get the Eversource Energy Audit scheduled. Geoff Hausmann 860-443-4400. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, the energy audit will help you. Looking forward to taking care of you.
