Family-owned since 1957

Olson and Family, 1957

For over 60 years, homeowners throughout the Puget Sound area have come to know us for providing the best-in-class service they deserve. When you choose Washington Energy, you're choosing a reliable, experienced partner to make your home great.

In the beginning

In 1957, Ballard native H. “Vern” Olson opened Northwest Water Heater Exchange, a family business providing timely tank replacement and exceptional customer service.

More than water heaters

Over the years, the business expanded to installing heating, cooling, windows, doors, and siding, and became a top home improvement contractor.

Becoming all for home

They saw that there were companies that sold home products, companies that installed home products, but no company that took ownership of the product, installation, and service all together. They knew this approach would solve many contractor and box store issues faced by customers.


We are still family-owned, and have grown to provide tailored comfort and energy-saving solutions. Wherever you see Washington Energy, you can be assured we’re living our founder’s values and are committed to exceeding your expectations.

We are craftsmen,
not contractors.

There isn’t one way to do things, but there is a right way.

This philosophy has won us a best-in-class reputation, but it didn’t happen overnight. We’ve earned it along the way by choosing to have the passion to see each project through, to treat our work as more than just a job.

We are committed to being an active participant in the communities we live in and serve. Over the past few years we have performed in-kind donations for many local organizations including local veterans, Seattle Children’s, Make-a-Wish, Habitat for Humanity, and Clothes for Kids.

Energy Star

We’re proud to support the Energy Star program. Nearly all of the products we offer carry the Energy Star certification.

PSE Contractor Network

Puget Sound Energy's Contractor Alliance Network is only for the best contractors in the area.


Because it is not a chlorine-based coolant, Puron refrigerant is environmentally friendly.

Lead-Safe Certified

We follow specific, EPA-mandated work practices in order to prevent lead contamination.

We Recycle

From used water heaters to worn-out windows, Washington Energy Services is proud to recycle all of the old equipment we remove from homes. The wood, glass, metal, and vinyl is recycled and used in post-consumer goods including paper, building products, and new products.
