Our History

Fox Energy Specialists originally began as the energy consulting division of its parent company, The Nelrod Company (founded in 1985). Since 1985, The Nelrod Company has provided energy audit services for the affordable housing industry, a service that is required by the federal government (24 CFR 965.302) to be conducted every five years per project.

During the mid to late 1990s, through the formation and implementation of the ENERGY STAR program for above-code homes, these services gained prominence in the private sector. With Nelrod's vast experience in energy audit services for the affordable housing industry, it was an easy decision to expand our talents to the private sector. In early 2001, Fox Energy Specialists was formed to meet that growing need.

Since then, Fox Energy Specialists has evolved into one of the country's premier home energy rating and independent third-party independent testing providers. Through our in-house and nationwide partner network, we have inspected, tested, rated, and verified more than 46,000 homes for numerous homebuilding companies. Our firm has one of the most recognized brands in the industry and has been the recipient of numerous industry awards.

Fox Energy Specialists has a tested and successful strategy to distinguish ourselves in an extremely competitive marketplace. We understand what our clients value. We've designed our processes and systems to provide a level of service that keeps our clients on the cutting edge of green building and energy efficiency. As long as housing and buildings are in need of reducing their carbon footprint, Fox Energy Specialists will be there.
