Three Local Contractors Recognized for Outstanding Work With Puget Sound Energy Customers

Together They Completed More Than 1,450 Energy-Efficient Installations for PSE Residential Customers in 2012

BELLEVUE, Wash. (July 1, 2013) – Three local contractors have been recognized by Puget Sound Energy for helping the energy company’s customers take advantage of PSE incentives to make their homes more energy-efficient.

PSE’s 2012 Energy Efficiency Action awards honor Seattle, Wash. based companies Brennan Heating & Air Conditioning and Washington Energy Services each winning the award for the sixth consecutive year, and a new member to the award winning group, Barron Heating and Air Conditioning of Mt. Vernon, Wash.

“PSE’s trade partners are integral to the success of our energy efficiency programs,” said Walker Dodson, manager of PSE’s residential heating programs. “It’s an honor to recognize these contractors for their commitment to helping customers enhance the comfort, safety and efficiency of their homes while lowering their energy bills.”

Each winner earns distinction for outstanding performance in helping residential customers save electricity and natural gas. Together, the three contractors installed enough high-efficiency furnaces, water heaters and heat pumps to account for 17 percent of the total space and water heating incentives provided to PSE residential customers in 2012. In all, the three award-winning contractors performed more than 1,450 residential energy-efficient installations in 2012.

Brennan Heating & Air Conditioning, Washington Energy Services and Barron Heating and Air Conditioning are all part of PSE’s Contractor Alliance Network, which connects PSE customers with pre-screened, independent contractors committed to helping customers make smart, reliable and safe energy choices to ensure their home or business improvement projects are successful.

PSE residential customers can take advantage of PSE incentives on energy-efficient appliances, equipment and upgrades, including discounts on compact fluorescent light (CFL) and light emitting diode (LED) lighting, up to $3,550 to convert your home’s heating system from electric to natural gas, up to $2,000 for insulation upgrades, $1,200 for ductless heat pumps, up to $800 for heat pump water heaters, $250 for natural gas furnaces, and rebates for clothes washers, refrigerators and many other incentives.
