Blake is fantastic -- thoughtful, knowledgeable, and easy to communicate with. When our thirty-year-old boiler died, we contacted Blake for a broader look at our HVAC options going forward. He came over right away, and we had a therapeutic conversation about our needs and concerns, both now and...Read More

He's an excellent person to...Read More

Blake perf ormed an energy audit for my in-laws as they evaluated whether to continue aging in their country home of 25 years. He could easily have sold them services they didn't need. Instead, he pointed out immediate health-and-safety concerns that they could easily address on their own with a...Read More

I've known Blake for more than 25 years. I hate Blake. Blake is who I would be if I were smarter, better looking, and a hell of a lot more efficient. But I'm not and his silly business is too far away for me to hire him so I'm stuck doing my energy efficiency upgrades on my own, but as I already...Read More

We worked with Blake as a consultant, providing third party advice on the type of boiler we should install based on our budget, climate, and desire for long term reliability. He was generous and patient with his time, helping us to think through our options and chose the quote from local heating...Read More
Blake came to our rescue last fall when another local energy contractor’s false promises literally left us--and our drafty, heat-less, 200 year old house--out in the cold. In the span of one month (October): he completed an energy audit; he and......Read More

"Thank you for all the time and energy you have devoted to nurturing our children in teamwork, good sportsmanship and ball skills. The positive impact you have had on their self-...Read More
The great room in the middle of our house has an 18-foot open-beam ceiling that has always collected more heat than expected, despite the excellent ventilation the room receives. Before consulting with Terrawatt, we installed an attic fan to pull heat from the upper...Read More
