Energy Savers’ Building Performance Institute–certified technicians use energy-saving techniques to keep indoor climates comfortable during all seasons and to diminish homeowners’ electricity bills. During home energy audits, they inspect abodes for energy leaks and share their findings with clients, detailing options for making heating and cooling systems more efficient. The process makes homes more comfortable for inhabitants and more eco-friendly.
Stewart Enterprises does for homes what a spa does for bodies: they make them look and operate better from top to bottom, inside and out. The company, which has been a pinnacle of the area’s home-improvement industry since 1977, takes great pride in hiring local workers. Today, they dispatch their workers all over the surrounding area for anything from renovation projects, to new roofs, to kitchen remodels, to baths, basements and so much more. But Stewart Enterprises doesn't just repair and renovate: they also construct additions so owners don't have to pump steroids into their houses' duct work to make it grow.

A parade of fixtures from brands such as Kohler, Moen, and Grohe tempts kitchen and bath savants at The Somerville Showroom. An Aqueous single-hole bathroom faucet shoots a steady flow of water into waiting basins ($111.07), and a Kohler Cachet elongated toilet seat snaps off easily to be cleaned or used as an emergency Frisbee ($59.30). Alternately, a polished chrome Kohler Flipside showerhead caresses soul cases with four different flavors of spray—a traditional shower, a dense and drenching spa mist, a pulsating water massage, and a circular-patterned spray ($95.30). Homeowners can also bring along detailed plans of a bathroom or kitchen remodel, and knowledgeable staff members can advise which faucet finishes will complement countertops or pink-and-red Hello Kitty color schemes.
