About Home Energy Licensed Professionals

HELP is a full service home performance division of Semcac Weatherization serving the Southeast Minnesota area. We can provide energy audits with blower-door testing & infrared scans to pinpoint your home’s deficiencies to any home repairs & improvements that you need to enhance your home’s value. The energy audit can increase your in-home comfort & health and lower energy bills. We are certified, licensed, and have 40+ years of experience in home efficiency.

As a Community action agency, Semcac has provided home weatherization assistance to low-income households for many years. Often potential customers would ask our staff if we are available to do work on their homes, however, due to grant restrictions we were unable to assist. It was a natural progression to start a “fee-for-service” program offering our services to the greater population. Any profits are redirected back into the low-income Semcac Weatherization Program to continue to provide services to those in need.

A true team of professionals. They were informative and helpful throughout the whole process.


I hired HELP to do an energy audit on my 1930’s home. Luke was very professional and helpful, explaining what they were doing and why. The blower door test showed a lot more insulation was needed in the attic crawl space. After the audit a thorough Project Proposal indicating the cost of materials and the cost of labor was sent to me. The whole process was a positive experience.


The Energy Audit that was performed on our home was very informative. It helped provide a lot of good recommendations at a reasonable cost, which we had the HELP crew complete. The crew did a wonderful job. We can already tell the difference in the way our home is heating and cooling.
