Energy Audit reviews in San Jose


They were very thorough in helping us see where our home lacked efficiency and how we could improved it. We were given some possible solutions, including upgrading our AC, furnace, insulation. Provided a very organized review of their findings. Will consider hiring if we choose to go with their suggestions.

I was initially referred to

by Grape Solar, whom I had contacted to find "qualified installers" of their panels. My plan was to install solar panels so that I could finally in good conscience get -and run- ducted air conditioning for my home to keep the place cool in the summer time.
San Jose Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
called right back and his first words were... don't do that! He suggested a number of much simpler and cheaper options, including a whole house fan, attic fan, and radiant

. It made so much sense! Of course they do solar too, which I decided I wanted anyway, irrespective of the wish to power A/C. I was impressed that

was so reasonable and not trying to sell things that I did not need. For example, he calculated the size of solar system I would need to maximize my return on investment, rather than trying to push the largest possible system. I ended up getting a bigger system than he recommended (what if I buy a plug in electric vehicle? What if prices increase? etc...) but that was my choice (and I am very happy with it!)

mentioned his showroom in

of many of the products he carries. I showed up there the next Saturday. Normally, they are open on Saturdays, but this being a Saturday in June, the showroom was closed while

and family attended a graduation event. When I called to ask why the showroom was closed,

went out of his way and made a special trip to open up for an hour just for me, since I had made the trip from San

. This was really nice of him! I pretty much decided there and then that I would like to do business with these good folks. Their prices -especially on solar- are also very reasonable, and were cheaper than those of other installers that I had contacted.The survey of my roof and attic by

took place within a week and installation of the whole house fan happened in the following week. The bulk of the solar panel installation was done in one day (a brutally hot day), with a couple of follow up visits for tweaks and preparation for the permit inspection. Attic fan installation and radiant

were also done in a day. The installers were helpful, considerate, and cleaned up after themselves. I was happy that the installers were careful with my roof, which is metal and easily dented. They replaced tiles under the panels so that they could use a mounting system that was less likely to leak, and the work looked very clean and orderly to me.So - all in all- a most excellent experience! Do I have *any* beefs? OK, a nit - response to email could have been a bit better on a couple of occasions, but it didn't cause any problems. Overall, I am thrilled with the result of the work. My house is cool, I sleep with fresh air wafting through the bedroom, and the electric meter spins backwards most of the day! Hooray!

We got the deal through Angie's List. I am actually not extremely happy about how that turned out. They didn't seem to actually have a complete listing of who had paid through Angie's List and who hadn't. We ended up having to prove that we had paid. The guy was very professional. I liked the gentleman who was out here. I thought he did a real nice job. We still haven't got the report. We had it done quite some time ago. There was apparently a problem with his email. Then I think Recurve merged with another company. Right now I am actually in the throes of trying to get that report from them. I got an email saying that I had to direct my inquiry to the new company. The gentleman was nice and very professional. I didn't have a problem with the actual doing it. It was a problem with the responsiveness. I probably would not use them in the future just because of the problem.

The technician arrived on time and was both very pleasant and very knowledgeable. He found and fixed the problem very quickly, and took the time to answer many questions about how the heating system worked and how best to use it. A real pro!

It went pretty well. We had a different contractor putting in our high-efficiency furnace/ AC combo which complicated things a bit (normally they would do the whole package). We also had a delay in the middle as

's electrician found a lot of stuff in the attic that needed fixing before they could insulate (my contractor did the work). Obviously, this is just part of working on an older house.

(owner) and his sister,
San Jose Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
(office manager?) were responsive to our concerns and worked with our (not easy) schedule. The technicians who did the before/after energy audits were great--very professional, organized, efficient. The guys that did the insulation were sincere and reasonably careful, and they were nice people, but they missed some things--like forgetting to insulate under part of the house and around the attic entry space.
San Jose Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
had them take care of it as soon as I reported these problems and things did get fixed promptly. (I don't think these guys were part of his regular crew--I suspect they were subcontractors he has used before). I haven't crawled around under the house to inspect personally, but my husband had to go under there to relight the furnace after the insulation on the walls was done and he says it looks OK. My house is definitely warmer (and quieter--bonus of insulating the walls!). I would recommend them for this kind of work--my contractor says that very few companies who do this type of thing bother with the air-sealing, and it makes a big difference. My PG&E rebate got processed promptly and I got the check a few days ago.
