Virtual Energy Assessment
Do you want to know how much electricity the different parts of your home really use? Do you know how much you would save on your electric bill by changing out that old refrigerator? If you have questions like these, then the Virtual Energy Assessment is designed for you. Completion of this tool is your first step in our Energy Audit process.
After completing our Virtual Energy Assessment, please feel free to contact Nolin with any additional questions regarding your electrical usage and energy bills. One of our energy experts will follow up with you to review your specific needs, and can perform an energy audit as needed to see where you can improve your energy efficiency. You may even be eligible for a rebate opportunity, such as our Button-Up Program.

Are you planning to replace your ceiling cable, baseboard, or electric furnace heating with a new heat pump? It pays to check with the friendly folks at Nolin before you replace your home heating and cooling system. If you install a new high efficiency heat pump that meets our guidelines, we may give you some cash back in the form of a rebate.
