"When we decided to renovate and expand the home we’d lived in for 8 years, our goal was to create the most energy efficient, green home possible while making cost effective choices and with low future operating costs. One of our first steps was to hire Judy Martin of Green Home Consulting whom we call our “Queen of Green”.
Judy added significant value with the experience and broad ranging expertise she brought to the renovation process. We are very happy that we got her involved early in the project because she identified design choices to avoid that would reduce energy efficiency. At the outset, she provided a detailed “green” checklist of best practices. Going forward, she was involved in weekly decisions large and small from reviewing architectural plans to geothermal HVAC and solar systems to lighting. Judy’s relationships with top quality “green” subcontractors greatly enhanced our project.
Judy was always available to answer our questions and took the time to educate us about the pros and cons so that we could make the best choices for our home. She also kept us abreast of available Federal and state financial incentives. She is passionate about energy efficiency and strives to make it accessible and achievable for everyone. Judy was a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone who is renovating or building a home."

"Judy oversaw our solar [and] insulation projects that have netted us significant energy savings.”
John and Ann, Rye
"When we decided to purchase a home in Larchmont, we quickly realized that much of the area's housing consisted of older homes that were unlikely to have the latest technology in energy efficiency. When we purchased our house, we wanted to identify areas of improvement that would have a meaningful impact on our lifestyle and comfort while also offering financial savings with a reasonable payback period. There was no shortage of contractors all claiming to be knowledgeable in the "green" technology space. After multiple conversations with various people the one name that continually surfaced was Judy Martin of Green Home Consulting.
After our first meeting, we immediately saw a difference in Judy's approach. As someone who's been working in this space for over 4 years, Judy has informed opinions about proven technologies as opposed to pushing the "latest" concept. She is independent and has extensive knowledge across multiple areas including design, electrical, insulation and heating and cooling. This is reflected in her approach, where Judy will review the totality of alternatives and then work to select and prioritize the recommended modifications. In addition to consulting, Judy has an extensive network of proven and tested contractors with whom she has worked and trusts. In our case, we elected to focus on insulation and A/C installation, both of which we have been extremely happy with from both a service and performance perspective.
Where the project investment and returns can be substantial, we found Judy's expertise, client service, and relationships to be a huge part of our successful renovation work. Now that we're done with the first phase of our work, we look forward to continuing our work with Judy as we explore other areas of renovation / modification."
"We worked with Green Home Consulting and Judy Martin to install solar panels and better insulate our home. Judy's extremely knowledgeable and has great suggestions and contacts. We couldn't be happier with the results and recommend Judy most highly."
