Providing leak-detection technologies and energy-saving home improvements are just the beginning.

We pride ourselves in conducting highly precise energy audits and providing a wide range of follow-up, money-saving, direct-installation services.

But the most innovative and valuable service we provide on behalf of our clients is our Customer Energy Educational Program.

The long-term effectiveness of your program depends on it.

An informed, motivated customer is essential to the long-term success of your utility’s or government agency’s energy services program.

We empower each customer to make wiser decisions about how they use–and conserve–energy in their homes. Providing energy education creates satisfied and loyal customers.

That is why UE leverages education into everything we do, including:

  • One-on-one sessions with customers during audits
  • Detailed cost and energy estimates for every system and appliance
  • Follow-up calls and mailings to report progress and encourage improvement
  • Literature full of energy-saving tips and information including calendars, magnets, posters, etc.

Special insights into educating low-income families

Because we work with approximately 1,500 private homes and commercial buildings annually, UE has learned what information most resonates with customers—and more importantly, what does not. We continue to hone our educational programs accordingly each year for this segment of the population—with stellar results.

We go beyond improving your customers’ energy use—we improve their energy understanding.

 Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from natural processes that are continuously replenished. This includes sunlight (Photovoltaic or Solar Panels), geothermal heat, wind, tides, water, and various forms of biomass. This energy cannot be exhausted and is constantly renewed.

Weatherization is distinct from building insulation, although building insulation requires weatherization for proper functioning. Many types of insulation can be thought of as weatherization, because they block drafts or protect from cold winds. Whereas insulation primarily reduces conductive heat flow, weatherization primarily reduces convective heat flow.

Through the federally-funded Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) administered by the Northwest Indiana Community Action, (NWICA) weatherization services reduce energy costs for families by improving the energy efficiency of their homes, while also assessing and eliminating related health and safety issues. Our Energy Solutions team completes a site-specific energy audit of a home that includes blower-door-directed air leakage diagnostics, heating system safety and efficiency diagnostics, duct leakage diagnostics, and insulation needs. Following the energy audit, NWICA's team performs repairs and improvements to home heating and cooling systems and provides for the installation of energy-saving measures in the house, such as improved insulation and air sealing from Urban Efficiency.

Weatherization Services

Weatherization or weatherproofing is the practice of protecting a building and its interior from the elements, particularly from sunlight, precipitation, and wind and of modifying a building to reduce energy consumption and optimize energy efficiency.
