About Home Energy HERO

Imagine if you could help someone new every day by reducing their energy bills, solving their comfort issues, and fixing problems leading them to live in a more efficient, safer home every day.

That’s exactly what excites Rich Dexter, Owner and CEO (Chief Efficiency Officer) behind Home Energy HERO. After years of working in a corporate environment, Rich realized he loved helping people, but the bureaucracy just wasn’t for him. A mentor guided him towards entrepreneurship and after a residential energy class, he quickly became obsessed with how he could help people save money and energy. He started by fixing his own house and then moved on to advising his family and friends.

Momentum continued to build and 9+ years later, here we are!

“When I leave, the homeowners are always happy I was there. Whether I’m saving them from utility bills or saving them from wearing extra layers, we’re figuring it out!”

Rich lives in a ski-chalet type home that is heated and cooled with geothermal technology with his beautiful wife, Karen, two active boys Jake and Cam, a mastiff named Brewster and a Pomeranian named Cin. (Which one do you think runs the house?)
