Over the past few years Angie's List has grown to be a tremendous resource for my family and I in locating competent and reliable contractors. Which is why writing this review is difficult. Our adventure began in mid August of this year. After receiving a telephone call from the
our audit was scheduled and all appeared fine. On the date of the audit, two gentlemen arrived on time and extremely pleasant and polite. After a brief tour of the house, they identified a few questionable areas. And after a brief discussion, they proceeded. A few questions were asked in regards to actual dates of our window installations and the age of our furnace and central air conditioning unit. At the time I didn't pay it no mind. I have to admit I was a little baffled because I was under the impression that as illustrated in their promotional material a thermal gun would be used at some point to determine the efficiency of our windows and not just by the date of the installation. The only significant thing I recall them doing was the door blower test. After about an hour, they were packed and on there way. Up unto this point my opinion was mixed. It wasn't what I had imagined but it was what happened next that solidified my opinion and this review. About 2 weeks later I received a telephone call to sit down and discuss the findings. On this visit, my wife and I cancelled a family function in order to go over the results of there findings. Our hope was to collectively go over the results in hopes of having any work done prior to the change in seasons. However the focus of this discussion was on a few financial resources that are available to fund whatever work was needed. Mind you at this point we hadn't seen or discussed what work was actually needed. During the meeting we found out that a report had not been generated and that the representative didn't even have a copy to show us. After receiving numerous apologies we ended the meeting until a report could be generated and we had adequate time to review it. After waiting over a month, we finally received the report via email. It was just as we predicted. A new heating unit was recommended among other things. I was shocked! Not really. To sum it up, it cost me $75 to find out that my 15 year old heating unit would be more energy efficient if it were replaced. No kidding! Thanks but no thanks! The few suggestions they made were of projects I already had planned prior to their initial visit. A few more weeks past and we received another telephone call. At this point we had had enough and asked not to be contacted again. Back to square one.

The audit took several hours and was done very professionally. The technician explained questions we had during the course of his examination, as well as showing us some major issues.
Additionally, a very, very complete report was generated and discussed with us at a second appointment.
We did not have the suggested work done - simply because we are planning to move to a 55+ community, and the ROI for several of the items was not immediate enough to benefit us (replacement for old heating/cooling system, etc). However, I truly wish we had spoken to them 10 years ago, as we would have hired them instantly.
Both my husband and I were very impressed with their presentation, as well as the techician. For those of you staying in your homes for the foreseeable future, we would heartily recommend this company!

The installer explained what could be done to install proper insulation which would have cost more than I had to spend and would have made a bigger mess so I passed. I really appreciated the professionalism and honesty of these people. The work they did do was excellent and professionally done and I think will help me feel more comfortable during the winter.

was our contact at Unique. Everyone I came into contact with from Unique was incredibly courteous, professional, and more than competent, but the gold star for patience definitely goes to

! We are first-time homeowners who bought a house with a boiler from 1957 and an aging hot water heater. We knew they were going to need replacing, but we wanted to do it on our terms rather than wait for them to give out and have to make a decision quickly. And boy, did we not decide quickly.

worked with us to go over every tiny detail of understanding how our home's air/heat/hot water systems worked, as well as what every possible option (solar/geothermal/condensing boilers/modulating boilers/air sealing/insulating) was for making our home more energy efficient and comfortable. It took us 10 months of hemming and hawing before we went with what I imagine was

's almost instant understanding of our needs and our budget, but he and his team were nothing but patient, professional, and courteous the whole time.
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
came back a few times, with different sub-contractors or members of his team, to look with us at different aspects of the job and different ways we could do it (the attic insulation was something we thought a lot about) and each person he brought in was just as smart and kind and patient.
When we did move forward the Unique team faced a broken-down truck on installation day, but called us first thing in the morning to let us know was was going on. They even sent someone ahead so that we would have the comfort of speaking in person to a member of their team before we had to leave for work, and they STILL managed to get the job done on time. Our basement was left clean and without a hair out of place, and everything works like a charm.
We got other bids, and they were a little lower, but when I compared the wholesale equipment prices online it was easy to see why. (They might be a bit more expensive than other providers, but I think the quality of the equipment, the skill, and the service merit this.) I don't know a lot about heating and cooling equipment, but my guess is that Unique installs equipment they trust in the same way they clearly hire people they trust.
Also,
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
gave us great advice about how different options we were considering would (or wouldn't) pay off over time in terms of energy savings. Unlike some other companies we considered, their financial analysis was sound. We saw some bad money math in this process, and it was math that always made the installing company's equipment look really inexpensive over time, but Unique never engaged in that kind of poor number-crunching and was honest about what was worthwhile and why.
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
also informed us about some of the low-interest loans that are available for certain kinds of energy-efficient home projects, and worked to make sure that our project would meet those requirements.
I did a lot of reading about 'green' installation and energy-efficiency, and everything that Unique and
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
discussed with us matched up with what I was reading online and in Fine Homebuilding magazine about industry best practices. It was clear than Unique had a deep understanding of building science and wasn't just a 'greenwashing' type of business. They have all the certifications those places recommend, and they've trained different people throughout their business in a way that shows they're interested in really using the knowledge to make smart decisions, not just in having a bunch of letters after their names on business cards.
We went with Unique in the end because we were confident that they were knowledgeable and more than competent, and because they were honest and pleasant to work with, and we knew we wanted our ongoing relationship to be with them. I worked with a lot of contractors in my past work and can say that it's clear that
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
and the Unique team are at the very top of the list. I really can't recommend them highly enough. Go with Unique, you won't be sorry!

I had purchased the coupon for $79.00
Someone came out and went thru my house and told me my appliances were not energy efficient (washer,dryer,frig and range)
I was looking for information not so much on appliances as the condition of my home
Someone contacted me and came out to talk about the insulation of my home
I contracted with
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
for sprayed in insulation and we agreed upon a date and I was given the credit by the bank ($4000.00)
On insulation day the company sent out two (2) trucks and four (4) installers The installer informed me that my house could
not take sprayed in insulation as there was not enough space between the ceiling of the house and the roof
BUT I was still charged $250.00
Here is my question Was I charged this $250.00 because their people came out BUT were unable to do any work
It took me so long to get back to you as I have been in the hospital for several weeks (doing much better now)
Should I have been charged that $250.00 because technically they did No Work
Should I be refunded this $250.00
Looking forward to hearing from you


****Updated Review*****
They refunded my $250 dollars and I am very happy with the service now.

The representative came out to conduct what was supposed to be, what I was told, a 3 - 4 hour energy audit. He ended up staying about 2 hours, which
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
me to believe that perhaps corners were being cut???? I'm not sure. While he spent some time in our attic, crawl spaces, and basement, and seemed to do a good analysis in those parts of the house, he seemed to neglect other obvious places, i.e. the drafty doors, windows, and floor. When a second representative did a follow-up visit with the final audit report, there were several errors, omissions, and price miscalculations. The 2nd representative was completely apologetic, and said that he normally prepared reports for audits that he personally conducted, rather than presenting a report for an audit that someone else conducted. He was sorry that he couldn't speak directly to the discrepancies. This was highly unfortunate as the
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
seems to be a reputable company, but the final report was sloppy at best. Similarly, recommendations were clearly linked to follow up services with the
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
, and some of the prices seemed on the high side (i.e. for replacement windows). While everyone I dealt with was very nice, I felt slightly disappointed with the services overall.

The guys were very professional and thorough. They ran several tests on the house and its systems. After a couple of weeks, they returned with a report on energy efficient upgrades. They were not pushy about selling services in any way. In fact, they covered the cost of 'fixing' my water heater when they forgot to turn it back on after a test.

I ended up getting a discount because it took them more than a month to finish the work. At first I went with them because they had a high rating and they were able to come right out to do the work because I was in a hurry to get the work done. When they were here they said they would send the results but they never did. I called them a week and a half later and they said they forgot to send them but they would. I had to call them again a month later because I still didn't receive them and they apologized. They did come out and show me the results of the audit and gave me a discount because of the late response.

did a great job on our home energy audit. He was professional, knowledgeable, thorough and friendly. He had a detailed, comprehensive audit report ready for us by the next day. It was full of helpful information. I'm looking forward to applying his recommendations and saving on my heating and air conditioning bills this year. I would definitely recommend

was above board throughout our entire experience with us.He came to our local civic, he was recommended by EnergyWorks and a local neighbor had used.He was professional in the report, he explained in detail the audit and what it would say to be my wife who worked directly with him over the course of the audit. As importantly, the audit was delivered on time, was thorough, included pictures (!). He didn't push one exclusive company to do the work which was good because we were not impressed with the
Philadelphia Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
Group, which was one of the larger companies he recommended, and we went with a smaller firm.
