Chris Hawkins - Energy Auditor/Comfort Advisor
Chris has a diverse background with an undergraduate degree in healthcare administration and graduate degrees in business and education. A few years ago, Chris had an energy auditor come to his home to conduct an energy audit. While the auditor was in his home, Chris shadowed him as he conducted his tests and evaluated the space. He was fascinated with the things he learned and that was it, Chris was hooked!
After the home evaluation and despite not having all of the tools of the trade, Chris set out to make as many changes to his home as possible. This tradition has continued in each of the homes that he lived from that day forward. Chris is happily married and is retired from the U.S. Navy. He continues his service to this great nation by helping folks here by making their homes more comfortable, energy efficient and reducing their carbon footprint!
