HomeWorks Energy (HWE) Customer Service Policy: ** 

Customer satisfaction is of paramount importance to the company. HomeWorks maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and has more than 400 5-star reviews on Google, where it earns a composite rating of 4.6 stars. HWE surveys every customer after any interaction and reviews its 80+% all-time Net Promoter Score (NPS) for its home energy specialist, weatherization, and HVAC departments every week with leadership. 

All installations done by HomeWorks are subject to a quality control assurance guarantee through Mass Save. Program Lead Vendors drop in to shadow or subsequently audit about 60% of installations. Additionally, HomeWorks Field Managers routinely internally audit 30% of weatherization jobs, though there is some overlap between Mass Save audits and internal HWE quality control efforts. 

Residents may also call a toll-free number (339-707-0918) to schedule a free consultation with an independent party (Abode) after any work by HomeWorks has been completed. Any issues in workmanship are remedied by HWE at no cost to the homeowner.  

HomeWorks sends follow-up surveys to residents after every HEA and weatherization installation. If any issues are experienced during these steps, an additional survey is sent out once the issue is resolved. These surveys ensure HWE teams are kept up-to-date on their performance and customer feedback. HWE has a dedicated post-installation team comprised of two full-time and one part-time employee to ensure homeowners are satisfied with all completed work. 

The home energy specialists, HVAC crews, installation teams, and marketing department hold bi-weekly meetings to stay current on best practices and review new Mass Save policies. Regional install and auditor managers oversee all work specifications, reviewing the plans for any errors and correcting mistakes before weatherization installation occurs.
