History of HB Energy Solutions, Springfield Vermont

  • Tom Hernon: Owner and Founder | VT & NH Master Plumber
  • Doug Bellows: VT & NH Master Plumber
  • Susan Hernon: Administrative Manager
  • Brian Hernon: Manager of Alternative Energy Division, NFI and NORA Certified

Tom Hernon and Doug Bellows started HB Plumbing and Heating in October of 1991. Operating out of Tom’s house in Bellows Falls, VT, they quickly earned a reputation for offering great service at a fair and reasonable price. In 1996 Tom and Doug purchased Springfield Plumbing & Heating, and moved their office to 132 Bridge Street, Springfield VT.

As their business grew, so did the entire crew. They employ master plumbers, journeyman, and apprentice plumbers. HB Energy also employs Gold, Silver and Bronze certified burner technicians, oil and septic drivers, truck mechanics and lawn care specialists.

With the infrastructure of a knowledgeable and dependable service department in place, HB began selling home heating oil to their customers. Since 1999, HB has enjoyed consistent growth and has been an area leader in offering products that are more environmentally friendly, such as low sulfur oil and Bio–Heat.

In 2002, HB Septic Services was formed. HB services septic pumps and septic tanks, and cleans grease traps, in addition to providing portable restrooms for construction sites, community events and private receptions.

In 2011, HB acquired Hemenway Electric in Springfield, VT and Chamberland Electric in Bellows Falls, VT to provide licensed electricians that many of our customers already know. An alternative energy showroom was also opened. The showroom displays the ways our customers can help the environment by using some of the many alternative energy items available.

Thus the saying "one call does it all" truly applies: customers calling HB can have their home heating oil delivered, their heating unit serviced, their plumbing repaired, their septic tank pumped, rent a portable restroom, heat their hot water with the sun, install an emergency generator, update their cooling system, and have their lawn mowed!

We believe that you, the customer, are the only reason we are in business, and our intention is to continue our business relationships for years to come.
