"We are installing a solar system at our home. I initially used Angie's List to select prospective bidders, and chose 3 to present bids. " was the third. showed up promptly at the agreed upon time, but that is the only category I can give acceptable to. The presentation was extremely thin, there was uncertainty on his part as to the number of panels he was quoting, he never discussed the electronics (inverter, my existing fuse panel, locations of panels/equipment, etc). He spent more time telling me how much he liked East . He also insisted that I could get a tax credit for 30% of the cost of my new asphalt roof just because I was also installing a solar system. Absolutely false. I was not impressed. The kicker came the next day when I emailed to thank him for his time, however we had narrowed our selection to the 2 other vendors. Even after that I received 4 more emails from him. I had previously sent an email directly to informing them of my opinion of the bid process, so they are certainly aware. If my experience is representative of , I fail to see how they have received so many glowing reviews.

"We went to a presentation at SMUD, and also consulted 3 other solar installers before choosing . I appreciated that solar was " 's only business, compared to a heating and air conditioning business that also does solar. Everyone was very responsive, and they even included an electric car charger for free. I felt they knew what they were doing, and if we had questions, someone got right back to us. Overall we are very satisfied with our system. If you are a SMUD customer and looking to get solar, SMUD will review your bids, analyze them, and give you a report.for free. They helped me understand what to look for in a bid.

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.

I had a family emergency and could not keep my scheduled appointment. They found someone to move up to my appointment and were able to fit me in as soon as I was able to return. The cost of the repair was very reasonable and the techs were competent and friendly.

I called by mistake. I thought it was the company my sister in law used. She told me she forgot and it wasn't the company she used. Thnx. They installed the system when we were away on vacation. When we came back, we noticed right a way that the system makes an horrible sound when the system shuts down. I called ...More and they sent out their technician, and their technician said that was how it was and that is normal! I was gullible and took their word. Then I called them back to do something about the noise and the way the pipes would vibrate and cause the brackets to damage our stucco. The technician came and said they would try to remove a ball bearing from a part to try to quiet the system. The tech strips the screws head and so he had to return with special equipment to unscrew the part he wanted to work on! End of the day he still couldn't fix the problem! After a couple of chances and visits, I think this technician and this company is just horrible and they are doing this on purpose. I was thinking about them.. I called Aztec solar instead to fix the problem. Aztec came and fixed the problem and reattached the brackets in one day. should rename their company Solarmoron.

I met with the sales representative in my home one evening who was very nice. Informative, but very direct, and it was obvious she had a certain "sell" that she had rehearsed/pitched before. When questions were asked in detail, she could not answer them. Despite my better , the deal seemed good so I decided to proceed. ...More When meeting with the head of the company he *also* had few details other than on the financing info. When it was decided to discuss with my band other financing options, my wife and I received a *CREDIT CARD* from one of his financing offers.
Buyer beware--VERY pushy sales people (with limited knowledge), few handouts or other items. Company supposedly in business since 1984 but few if any reviews. BE CAUTIOUS.

Excellent, above and beyond. They even helped resolve outstanding issues that were the responsibility of the pool contractor who did not complete the job properly. The rewired our pool equipment to work properly and to code as it should have been by the original contractor, for a fair price.
Our pool (which is large and deep) stayed warm all ...More summer, and into October.

We hired & Air 5 years ago to install an entire heating and cooling system during our remodel. The service was excellent 5 years ago as it is today. The system has worked very well for us since the installation, we were directed to the best solution for our needs not the most expensive. We called the company out recently ...More to ask some questions and make sure that everything was working correctly. The technician did a complete check of the HVAC system and the vents and answered our many questions and dispelled the many myths about services required to maintain heating and air conditioning. We appreciated the thorough testing and honest answers and we felt completely comfortable having the technician come into our home.

installed my Solahart system in the mid 90's. This has been a reliable system with little maintenance. I have had a maintenance every five years with a qualified technician. They have been professional and trustworthy. The office staff are helpful because they provided me with an estimated time frame the morning of the ...More appointment. I value this window because I hate to waste a complete day waiting for a service technician. I am glad they did their best to accommodate that time frame, but not rush my maintenance. Over the years, I have appreciated the savings. I am considering a PV system and know I will go to for all my solar needs.

I was interested in solar and got a bid from a competitor and found the price had gone down significantly from what I had looked 3 years or so ago. I reached out to because of their high ratings on angies list. I have gotten quotes on solar on more than one occasion so I don't really need the same attention that folks ...More new to the process need. The first thing that I liked about this company is they offered to meet in person, or virtually. I love the option to meet virtual. They called me on the phone, and via computer I accessed a site where they shared documents and walked me through everything and answered questions. This was a huge time save for me and I was very impressed. They also offered in person for folks that prefer that method but this was right up my . I was under time constraints because I wanted to get signed up for a system before the SMUD rebate was cut. They worked with me throughout the process to get me the information I needed so that they could process paperwork before the deadline. I like options. started with the initial quote which was his recommendation based on my energy use (if i remember correctly 22 panels). I wanted to be able to compare against a competitors bid so asked for a 24 panel bid in addition. They were clearly cheaper (by several thousand dollars). put together several more bids for me (even worked during the weekend) before I settled on panels and enphase inverters. I have to rave about 's suggestion about the Enphase inverters. One of the things that was important to me was being able to monitor power production (I wanted to be sure I was getting the power I was supposed to so that problems could be addressed if there were any). I was also concerned with warranty (panels usually have a 25 year or so warranty and inverters are usually 10. The Enphase inverts are very cool. There is actually an individual inverter for each panel. This optimizes production and if one panel fails, or an inverter fails, you can identify the issue. They also have a 25 year warranty which was astonding. I did run into a snag with financing. I don't feel there are a lot of solar friendly products out there. I have average credit (698 credit score) and make a pretty good salary (60-80k). I wasn't only able to qualify for a portion of the loan I wanted and decided to hold off, pay down a couple of cards, and try again. has been very patient, following up on the dates I have requested. I should know soon if I can qualify with my new score later this week. If not, did mention a new program coming to county in the fall that allows you to tied the solar panels and payments in with property taxes. I'm confident that working with and , I will have solar panels by the end of the year.
