How ERC’s services for hire work

Energy Assessment

One of our expert assessors will come to your location, measure energy efficiency, and identify any issues responsible for energy loss.


Using specialized software, the assessor will analyze your data and make recommendations for basic repairs and improvements that will reduce your energy usage and costs.


After you decide which repairs and improvements you’d like to make, our experienced technicians will perform the work at competitive prices.


When you choose ERC to perform your energy assessments and upgrades, you get a lot more than energy savings in return.

  • At only $400, energy assessments pay for themselves within months, not years.
  • The fees you pay directly support our non-profit efforts to provide critical energy assistance to income-qualified Colorado families.
  • By reducing energy consumption, you’re doing your part to provide a better future.
  • We’ll check for dangerous carbon monoxide leaks and make sure your family is properly protected from Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
  • Energy improvements typically result in a quieter, more comfortable environment.
  • ERC customers save an average 20%-30% after receiving assessments and upgrades.
