Meet The Crew

Owner Richard Vulliet began his career in the HVAC Industry in 1991 by opening Affordable Home Heating. A few years later Richard merged with a friend and colleague and together they became Blue Flame Heating and Air Conditioning. After many successful years, Richards passion for alternative energy solutions became his primary focus and he sold his share of the company to his business partner to start Energy Works NW. In 2015, Energy Works incorporated all facets of the HVAC Industry together and expanded the business to include Installation and service of gas furnaces, heat pumps, air conditioners, and ductless heat pumps.

Richards honest and ethical approach to business is rooted in his desire to educate customers. He prioritizes getting to know his customers so that Energy Works can help them install the system that is right for their home.

The team at Energy works is excited to help you maximize the comfort in your home.
