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.
