For the third consecutive year, Halco Heating has won the 2011 Century Club Award from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This award recognizes the contributions of home improvement contractors who have completed more than 100 home energy efficiency improvements with the Energy Star (HPwES) Program.
The Century Club Award is an important milestone in the home performance industry marking the hard word of participating contractors in the rapidly growing industry of providing energy-efficiency services to homeowners.
As a recipient, Halco Heating is recognized as one of only a select few companies who completed more than 100 energy efficiency improvements over the past year. In fact, in 2011, Halco actually surpassed the 100 minimum by improving the energy efficiency of an astounding 278 homes.
Launched in 2002, the HPwES Program reports nearly 200,000 energy home improvements since the start of the program, with more than 60,000 total last year. Contractors participating in the Program receive specialized training to diagnose homes, detecting where energy efficiencies will most benefit homeowners.
