Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
is a company certified by the City of
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
to perform inspections concerning electrical power use. I used them on reference from a close friend who recently used them. They follow a city developed checklist and procedures to determine the efficiency of your building for heat transfer. Mine is 35 years old. They made recommendations for upgrades to include tripling attic insulation from 6 to 18 inches, installing new weather strip on all exterior doors, resealing all locations where penetrations occur on exterior walls, installing a new new HVAC system thermostat, recaulking all windows. improving HVAC air return, installing 2 solar power roof fans, and sealing air duct leaks. Then they conducted air infiltration tests and their work resulted in 95% efficiency. The City is involved at every step in the process, and approves everything to unclude final inspection and sign off. Partial rebates are then provided by the City and Gas service. I Liked the owner and his staff and their service and hired them to do the upgrades. I can't provide an accurate cost until the rebates arrive. Total will be near $2500. The solar roof fans are manufactured locally, are

's share of cost, and increase investment payback time considerably.
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
was upfront and explained and helped me calculate different pay back scenarios until I was satisfied. I'm hoping for 10 to 15% reduction in electricity use this year and thereafter. A "no hassle" experience for me.
P.S. Visit with
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
Energy for recent city energy efficiency requirements for home sales. My HVAC system is new enough that it meets current
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
ratings and no "fixes" were recommended. Had it not met them and if I chose to spend more, further rebates were available.

The house we bought was built at 1979 and there are tons of things on the to-do list. We started with an energy audit to understand the priorities.
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job on the audit, not only he was punctual and professional, he was also very polite and patient. It was really a pleasant experience. Unlike some other business salesmen,
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
didn't push as all on following sales, which we liked a lot. We did plan on purchasing extra insulation services but need to wait until the old A/C units are replaced. The final report were comprehensive and surely will provide great guidance for our future home improvement. Thank you

I called to ask about insulation for my attic and he said they used fiberglass. I asked why they used fiberglass over cellulose and he said that it was cheaper and cellulose caught on fire and had pests. It is confusing enough trying to learn about insulation without having people lie to you. He admitted he was lying about the fire hazards and pests but then told me another lie about health hazards. The cost quote I had on cellulose was much less than a fiberglass quote so I believe his cost statement may have been a lie also. His price was in the ball-park as another fiberglass quote I had received. I have not decided if I will use fiberglass or cellulose but I know I will not do business with this company after he flat out lied to me.

I live in
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
and I am installing a Solar PV Power system. A house efficiency check is required to get the rebates for the solar power. I had the right amount of insulation, so the needed work was sealing the AC ducts, caulk where ever pipes break a wall, renew the weather striping doorseals, and put a cover over my whole house fan vent. After the work they did a air leakage test.
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
was very efficient at getting the work done in a timely basis. They worked well with me and the city inspectors to finish up the work. The
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
people were all great to work with. The city of
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
picked up much of the tab and my house is now very leak free. ...and I can proceed to the rest of the Solar power process.

I first contacted
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
for the audit. They are very professional and I was impressed when they showed me the results of the audit. They recommended what would be the most beneficial for us to make our home more energy efficient and most cost efficient. They were not pushy and did not push the most expensive A/C unit. They filed all the city rebates for us which was great and arranged the appointments with the city inspector for the rebates. I would definitely recommend using them.

If you are trying to navigate

a call and ask for

E.
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
showed me how much money I could save and the overall estimate for replacing two complete HVAC units, attic duct work, and weatherization is either the same or less than all of the other estimates I have received. Plus
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
has showed me how not waste money on varying products.
My first thought when I saw
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
was that he is too young to know much or care about explaining anything to a middle age woman. To my surprise
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
possesses an amazing amount of knowledge, has been extremely responsive to all communication, extremely polite, and very professional.
So far my experience could not be better. I am in the process of working out the finances, but there is no doubt I will be using
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
for the work. The approximate cost for two top of the line Trane units (entire units) and other work will be about $17,000 with also includes insulation, duct work, and solar attic fans. Rebates and tax credits will bring the amount down ~$13,200. Without
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
’s guidance I would have forfeited ~1/3 less in rebates and tax credits on the work. I will update this review once the work is complete.

Nick came out and did a 20 point energy inspection. Report was well-done, professional and showed me where I could improve the energy effectiveness in my home. I decided to add insulation and use their air seal service, which covers complete duct seal of the HVAC plenum, return air and all ductwork connections to reduce air leakage. This also included sealing the plumbing penetrations in the home, as well as weather-stripping the doors.
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
and
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
arrived on time, explained what they would do, and began their work. They were careful, methodical in their work, and seem to really enjoy working and tweaking to bring air leaks to below minimums in both pressure tests they ran. They did a great job of adding InsulsafeSP fiberglass blown in insulation in the attic, bringing it to a level of R38-40.
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
found some spots in the attic where there was missing insulation, and even shortened a duct run to make it more energy efficient. At my request, they removed a good amount of old, extra fiberglass
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
that the builder left strewn in my attic. After the job was complete,
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
inspected all their work to ensure it was done to their quality standards and to my satisfaction. They thoroughly cleaned up the job site, and explained to me what they had accomplished. It is apparent they both have extreme pride in their work, and represented their company with professionalism. As a Realtor, I will definitely use them for all future HVAC and associated work on my home, and gladly refer them to my clientele. Thanks
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
for your meticulous attention to detail and can-do attitude. You exceeded my expectations!

The
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
were fantastic and I highly recommend them and will use them again when our other AC unit gets older. First, they did a comprehensive energy audit and found rodent damage that no one else found (we got three bids). Second, they filed all the paperwork and sechuled the audits with the City of
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
and took care of everything so the price for their services is very misleading. Also, even the City of
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
inspector inspector pointed out the quality of their work in sealing our return air vents. We had originally scheduled the work for April but we still had an outstanding permit so we missed a big City of
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
rebate; however,
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
, the owner of the
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
, unprompted, worked with us to get us the money back through a discount on their services and though the City of
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
, What integrity. Also, they treat their employees very well and it shows through their work. Their proposal was very professional and they walked us through several options for AC units. When it came time to do the weatherization, insulation, and AC installation, they were so professional and thorough. I am EXTREMELY picky and they took care of every single issue, even ones that probably were outside their scope (e.g., painting over mastic inside a kitchen cabinet). Every employee of theirs who walked into our house was fantastic. I like how they took the conservative approach and asked me about certain work before doing something that might be more damaging.
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
had the brilliant idea of painting the kitchen sink escutcheons and
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
did a great job making sure everything was done and the side and back door sweeps were put on correctly.
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
did a fantastic and long, hot job in the attic of making sure every single piece of tape and hole was covered with mastic and was super informative throughout the whole process and had some additional good ideas that I had not thought of.
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
even replaced a piece of weatherstripping on the top of the side door that was not on my list because I asked about the split at the top (I did it myself before the
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
came) and he just volunteered to do it. I can't say enough good things about them.

Update on December 12, 2013: The
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
gave us a prompt bid for a dehumidifier for our new AC system (which required quite a bit of research as such a request is unusual for
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
), and sent the head of the team,
Austin Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
, who sealed one duct which had come loose, left us some extra mastic (which is expensive) and gave us advice on numerous other things we could do to our home (including very important fire safety hazards).
