Electrify My Home – Driving the Transformation of Energy Services

In every aspect, innovative green technologies like geothermal systems and smart thermostats are revolutionizing the HVAC sector. Thus, the HVAC industry of today is ever-changing. HVAC professionals and property owners alike have begun to recognize the significance of adopting a green strategy for construction. Many HVAC companies and their customers are, therefore, considering long-term investments in energy-efficient systems.

Furthermore, HVAC businesses and professionals will likely evolve with a bustling business climate due to the greater enforcement of EPA rules, new equipment technologies, and revised building codes. Throughout the world, contractors, and subcontractors have felt the effects of the shift toward green energy and green technologies. However, strict EPA rules on HVAC refrigerants and equipment have been transforming the HVAC industry as a whole.

As new technologies emerge, many organizations now offer HVAC services with a focus on meeting their customers’ needs. Likewise, Lawrence Ray Waters, an entrepreneur in the green energy sector, contributed significantly through his exceptional knowledge of emerging technological adaptations. Waters established the company named ‘Electrify My Home.’ For years, he has been serving as a Leading Light representative, and before that, he was on the advisory board of the Building Decarbonization Coalition. Countless businesses have sought his advice on electrification initiatives and processes because of his wealth of 35 years’ experience in the field.

Electrify My Home was founded in February, 2019. The company’s origins can be traced back to when its founder began working as an HVAC technician, enhancing the efficiency of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems and other household appliances by installing new insulation and air sealing.

With the passage of time and the development of new technologies, however, Waters could see clearly that his ultimate goal was to create novel methods by which households could save money and energy. He established the foundation for Electrify My Home after completing over 250 electrification projects since 2015. He made it apparent that a thorough and complex strategy is needed to convert homes to using green electric appliances.

Waters is assisting a vast number of households across the globe with the gradual electrification of their homes using a comprehensive plan. For those in need of a new furnace, his advice is to begin the electrification process by installing a heat pump, which is more cost-effective and energy-efficient. Electrify My Home can limit the conditioned air emitted from heating and cooling equipment, by improving insulation. It is one of the specific solutions that Waters has recommended for home electrification issues. To top it all off, air sealing the home will cover up all the cracks and crevices that let outside air, pollutants, and allergens into the house. These two simple changes can make a big difference in the energy efficiency of one’s house.

Electrify My Home has a consultancy contract for four years with Tech Clean California, a state-wide initiative to hasten the installation of clean space and water heating systems in all California residences.

Waters has created the “Lessons from the Field” training program for those serious about securing a career in the energy efficiency field. It is envisioned that the program will assist more HVAC businesses in seeing the significance of electrification. The three-day training program covers all the groundwork an organization’s personnel needs to know to thrive in the age of electrification, from the best methods for expansion to the essentials of giving effective sales presentations. In it, Waters imparts wisdom gleaned from more than three hundred different electrification projects. It has helped many businesses and households reduce their gas consumption.

In 2021, Electrify My Home received the 2021 Green Builder Magazine Eco Leader Award for their relentless efforts in pursuit of lowering homeowners’ carbon footprints. The company is working to secure the future energy demands of California while also ensuring the comfort and safety of Californian homes. Waters is now widely recognized as a leading expert in California’s energy industry, thanks to his wealth of expertise.

While the globe has been expediting its move to net zero, the HVAC industry has been particularly focused on sustainability. Energy-efficient and lower-emission technology, as well as companies like Electrify My Home, have transformed sustainable HVAC into something more revolutionary than it has ever been before.
