"We couldn't be happier with the work did. and his team were very professional and performed the work as detailed" in the proposal and final contract. They were patient with our naive questions about various aspects of the job. We had four estimates for the job. 's cost was roughly in the middle. We ultimately went with them based on Angie's List reviews and our comfort level with their proposal. helped us select the best products for our needs, taking into account functionality, aesthetics and cost. They kept us informed about timing for each aspect of the project. The finished work looks great. They also ensured that debris was cleared. So, no complaints from our neighbors either.

"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.

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.

Solar Panel Installation reviews in Chicago

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 ...More 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.

Contacted company. Mr. was extremely professional and kind. He and his staff worked very hard in accommodating me. Installation was done quickly and efficiently. The company was also very patient with the reimbursement process and guided me appropriately. Excellent follow up. Wonderful job and I would highly recommend this company.

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 ...More 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 ...More 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 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, ...More 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. took extra time to email me and speak on the phone about items that we couldn't cover in person.
The ...More 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.
