Owner | Harper Robinson

B.A. Appropriate Technology, ASU

BPI Certified Professional: Envelope, Building Analyst, Infiltration and Duct Leakage

Harper Robinson started as a volunteer for Conservation Pros in 2015, a few years after graduating from Appalachian State University and shortly after an apprenticeship installing renewable power in the Dominican Republic.  In 5 years Harper led Conservation Pros growth from 3 employees to 14 in 2020 and improving the lives of over 1000 customers at home while helping them reduce their impacts on the environment.  After buying a freezing-cold 120 year old building and completing a “deep energy retrofit” (LOTS of air sealing and insulation) Harper experienced the true benefits his work can have on peoples lives.

With a B.A in Appropriate Technology from Appalachian State, Harper has been educated in building science, construction, building codes, renewable energies and sustainable building design.  Harper also obtained all necessary certifications from the Building Performance Institute to be an energy auditor allowing him to perform building diagnostics and testing to increase his ability to bring the best solutions to each client.

Outside the profession you would find Harper with his amazing family: his wife, Lauren, and his three children, Quinn, Merritt, and Isaac. He’d also be taking care of his dog, bees and chickens and working on his own little homestead.
