For cautionary reasons and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, E+ Audits for the Home are not being scheduled at this time. Please complete a request form so we may contact you as soon as audits resume.

At NorthWestern Energy, we are dedicated to helping you save energy and money through Efficiency Plus (E+).  One of the easiest ways to get started is with a FREE home energy audit.

Our trained specialists come to your home and analyze your home’s energy usage.  You’ll receive tips to manage your energy usage more effectively, a customized report with recommendations of cost-effective energy improvements, and information to help you make appropriate investments.

Your home likely qualifies if you are:

  • A NorthWestern Energy residential natural gas or electric space- or water-heating customer in Montana.   
  • Your home is at least five years old
  • Your home has not received an E+ Audit since September 25, 1994 *

Your free home energy audit may include:

  • Blower door test to detect areas of leakage
  • Water heater temperature check
  • Refrigerator/freezer temperature check
  • Gas equipment safety check
  • Insulation evaluation
  • Free water heater tank wrap
  • Free hot water pipe insulation
  • Free low-flow faucet aerators and showerhead

A limited number of audits are available.   To request your free home energy audit, please fill out this form, or you may call the NorthWestern Energy Efficiency Program Hotline at 800-823-5995

Please note that NorthWestern Energy audit staff does not go door-to-door to promote energy audits.  For tips to hire a contractor to install energy efficiency improvements, click here.
