Making homes more energy-efficient and helping homeowners save money is our top priority here at RetroFoam of Michigan.
For the past eight years, we have been recognized for this work by one of the top energy providers in the state.
On Thursday, October 21, 2021, Consumers Energy held its annual Excellence in Energy Efficiency Banquet at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn. The banquet is held every year to acknowledge contractors who work with Consumers Energy in the utility company’s established energy efficiency programs.
“Our team works diligently all year on saving our customers money on their energy usage,” said RetroFoam of Michigan Controller Jennifer McFatridge. “We are honored for the recognition from our partners at Consumers Energy.”
Throughout 2020, RetroFoam of Michigan performed more than 150 home performance installations. These completed jobs once again earned RetroFoam of Michigan entry into the elite Home Performance with Energy Star Century Club Award.
These home performance jobs are done to help make the home more energy-efficient, thus helping to save the homeowner money on their monthly energy bills.
Along with another year in the Century Club, RetroFoam of Michigan received the Continued Excellence award in the Home Performance with Energy Star category, as well as the Top Performing Contractor award in the Insulation and Windows category.
RetroFoam of Michigan was also recognized as a Gold Level Contractor during the banquet.
As another way to save homeowners money on energy costs, RetroFoam of Michigan got involved in filing paperwork for Consumers Energy customers to ensure they received rebates on their home performance projects. These projects are very specific and require proving the air seal created with foam insulation by doing a blower door test.
The blower door test measures the air exchange in a home. This helps to identify where the air is leaking into and out of the house.
