"They upgraded the system on their own without me even knowing that I needed one. Whenever they come out they always give me options and preferences and inform me" on what might be best. Their after care is pretty excellent. This company has kept his workers for years and years and I believe that shows he is also a good employer.

"I saw their truck in the neighborhood and knew I wanted to go
, so I checked Angie's List and found them well recommended. I phoned,"
came right out and told me exactly what I could do given my house and roof. When they went up to install, they found that the roof needed repair first and they told me exactly what to ask the roofers about. Then they installed the inside and outside plumbing. Once I'd had the roof repaired, they installed the panels. They guys were knowledgeable and friendly, there was minimal intrusion on my home-based business and I was delighted. So far, so good. We'll see how much I save in gas expenses. And the bonus is that the government is willing to provide rebates for moving to solar heat, so the cost is really half what I reported above.

8 tips for finding the best solar panel installer

One highly rated provider shares eight tips to help you find the best solar panel installer for your home and get the best return on your investment.

3 types of solar panels: pros and cons

Are you confused about how solar panels work? Manufacturers produce three general types of panels, with variances that affect efficiency and performance. Find out how the three types differ, and which might work best.

Connecting your residential solar power to the utility grid comes with advantages, but for some homeowners a stand-alone solar system is a better fit.

Angie's Answers

Are you talking about powering your home solely on solar (i.e. no back up power source or off grid).

 

The power, once convered from DC to AC via the inverter, is suitable for use by the home. 

 

Most solar application are in supplement to the current powering of the home and will spin the meter back in the day but are not the primary.

OK - that should strike Atlantic Plumbing off your vendor list !

You say female pipe to copper pipe connection - I hope you are not saying they connected copper directly to galvanized or black iron pipe. If so, there should have been a dielectric union put in there to prevent corrosion, which could be part of your problem.

Also, generally a bad idea to use teflon tape for hot water tank connections - too much thermal cycling, loosens it up over time. Should use plumbers dope for that application.

It sounds to me like a connection problem - if the tank itself was leaking it should be flooding the top of the tank or more likely running down through the insulation and dripping out the bottom.

Unless you are a do it yourselfer, sounds like you need to find a new plumber with good reviews and rating in your area - Search the List (in green banner bar). This should be an easy fix - should have him put in dielectric couplings (about $5-10 each depending on pipe size) if current connection is iron to copper, and even if not, have him redo connection not only for cold but also hot water - if one was done poorly, probably both were.

the primary contact was helpful and patient during the planning stages. When the actual work was being done he went above and beyond to make sure everything went according to plan and remained on schedule. Follow-up on the few remaining details was excellent.

A good friend of mine had a solar heat and hot water system installed by this company. I was at her home while this was done and I was really impressed. The installers were very considerate and thorough. I bombarded them with questions about how the system works and they were very patient and answered all of my questions. They even cleaned up after themselves at the end of the day. The solar system has really decreased my friend's gas bills and it helps the environment, too. The government pays for part of the system, which reduces the cost a lot.

The workers arrived early, installed the fan and showed me (from the ground) where they installed it. After the fan was installed they asked if I had any questions and took time to address any concerns I had. They explained what they had done and told me the condition of the roof was good. The installers were prompt and professional. It is not possible for me to rate the workmanship since it was done on the roof and I did not physically see it. Overall the experience was uneventful and I would use them again.

The installation was done on a Saturday morning. I got a confirmation call from
Chicago Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
Friday night and a call on Saturday letting me know they were on their way. Arrival was on schedule. Work commenced immediately and was completed in less than an hour. They were very efficient. Clean, relatively quiet and professional. Unfortunately, I did not read the "fine print" which stated that the $475 Big Deal price applied to one story homes only. My home is single family (with bedrooms upstairs), but two stories, so there was a $200 upcharge. I would highly recommend them for solar attic fan installations.

They were on time, even though I was not. I was held up at work, but they were able to go through the house with my brother. I appreciate their professionalism considering i was not able to speak with them myself.
Chicago Solar Panel Installers Provider Name Locked
took extra time to email me and speak on the phone about items that we couldn't cover in person.
The report came a few weeks later and while it did not contain thermal pictures, it did have a written analysis of all my home's heating issues. This was not a cut and paste one size fits all report, they actually took time to describe all the issues specific to my home. They also addressed additional concerns I had mentioned, and offered to apply the $350 attic insulation towards any project. The proposal for the attic was about $2k, which is very reasonable considering the work involved getting under the floorboards(although demolition was not included).
I'd like to add that their professionalism is top notch. Unlike many contractors I did not feel like they were selling me for additional work. All they did was analyze the heat loss and find ways to save me money. They also were very informative about rebates and cost savers to help me make my decision. I followed up about additional services, such as thermal radiant heating, windows, etc. Every question I asked, they had a thorough educational response for. I will be having them out next week to discuss remodeling the first floor.
The experience and knowledge they've shown has given me a strong sense of confidence in my remodeling project, and the heating costs they propose to save me are phenomenal. I look forward to writing another review if we are able to move forward on the next project, which they suggest will pay for itself within 5 years.
