"Well, the courting process was great. The company was professional, on-time to appointments, demonstrated great knowledge of the services required and the CHIF program, and overall," built a perception that they would go above and beyond to get the job done on time, under budget, get the full available energy rebates, and credit me any unused loan dollars. But of course, once the contract is signed, you get hit with reality: 1) The work started
1st: I was told the work would take about a week. They completed the job (after descoping some items) the week of September 22nd. The foreman/supervisor on my job made promise after promise in regards to scheduling and would never deliver. Guys would show-up, sit around to wait for supplies, work a few hours and leave. He would send guys over to "look" at things and then leave. And more often than not, he said they would be there on a certain day/time and just not show up at all. Of course, there was always an excuse. I actually found humor on how creative the excuses became. But the moment that put it all in perspective was when one of his own workers said to me "you got green-starred" when I was complaining to him about the timing of this job that should have taken a week. My family wasted many hours/days waiting on this company. 2) I take partial blame for this part as I stupidly trusted these people. As part of the CHIF program, the home owner gets a loan for the cost of improving the home's energy efficiency, and also, receives rebates. As part of the process, the homeowner has to sign a certificate stating the work was completed to their satisfaction in order to release funds to the service provider.
convinced me that although the work had not been completed, I needed to sign the certificate in order to get the rebates before they expired. So stupidly I did, under the premise that
put in our contract a credit for unused dollars up to that point in time and of course, the remaining work needed. That occurred on
11th (10 days after project started), meaning
received their money from CHIF sometime around that date, and like I previously stated, they didn't complete the work (again, descoped from what was in the contract) until September 22. 3) Rebates and Issuance of Credits: So far, two rebate submissions have been rejected by the state because of errors on the documentations submitted by
. In addition, I am still awaiting my refund on the unused credit for work not performed. I am not holding my breathe that I will see near the dollars that should be entitled to anytime soon. Overall, I would not recommend this company to anyone and only hope others can learn from our terrible experience.

"I had a warrantee issue with the inverters that were installed by a different company. the manufacturer was replacing the parts for free, and even offered to pay for the labor." I found
willing to do the work and deal directly with the manufacturer. The installer was friendly, courteous, and competent. He even went above expectations and fixed a couple of things that had nothing to do with the inverters. I'm really happy with the service
provided and would use them again.

Home Energy Audits

One thing homeowners can do to save on energy costs is to have a home energy audit conducted. This will reveal where drafts are entering from outdoors and where insulation is ineffective. Energy auditors can also recommend upgrades in appliances to save energy.

My experience with this company was excellent. We decided to take all their post-audit recommendations, which included installing blown fiberglass insulation into both of our attics (one over our garage and one over our upstairs bedrooms), creating a dam around the hvac upstairs and a path to the unit, installing baffles along vented soffits to maintain passive attic ventilation, installing an insulated attic tent at one of our attic access pull down stairs, air sealing at top plates on interior walls from attic side and around ceiling mounted devices (recessed lights, ceiling fans) from the attic side, and installing mat covers over recessed lights and foam sealing them to the attic floor. As an additional benefit, the mat covers will keep those pesky stink bugs from getting into the house via the attic -awesome!

and his crew also air sealed bypasses at the vertical attic knee wall, air sealed around the exterior door in our family room and solved a huge problem for us, by air sealing the exterior wall by our cooktop vent. In addition, they replaced all of the flex duct from our upstairs hvac to each bedroom and bathroom (which unbeknownst to us was deteriorating and had actually been recalled) with new insulated flex duct. They also extended the venting of two bathroom fans to the outside at a roof mounted vent hood, which they installed. All of that work was done in just one day and it resulted in a significant improvement in energy loss, as evidenced by the post installation test out results. When they left my house, the place was spotless. This is a company you can trust. They are personable, professional, efficient and go the extra mile to make sure everything is done correctly. Here's the kicker...they also complete and submit all of the paperwork you need to obtain a rebate from BG&E under their Home Performance with Energy Star program, which provide rebates up to $3800. In our case, we will receive a substantial rebate. Based on the calculations we received as part of the energy audit, we will recoup our portion of the bill (after the rebate) in a few years which is a great deal, since we plan to stay in this house for many years to come.

I thought I had accepted the bid and sat all day on the 5th of Sept and no one showed. This was the date on the estimate that they said they could do the job. When originally I had called the Portland number to get the original person out to do an estimate they told me they don't schedule that I had to call the Vancouver Office to make the date. I called the Vancouver office the following Monday inquiring as to why they did not show.

said I had not responded to his email about the bid and had not sent them a down payment. I never received any email from him just from the estimate person which I had returned with ok and didn't say any thing about sending them a down payment. We got that settled and I sent them a signed copy of the estimate and approximately half of the bid as a down payment. We set the date for the 19th. They said they would be there at 8:30. Well, with one telephone call from the Portland office saying they were on their way, they arrived around 10:00 and told me they should be through about 2.
It took them all day and
Santa Rosa Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
complained that the estimate of the use of the supplies was way off and that I was getting a deal because they had to use so much more than estimated. I am retired and so the scheduling was not a problem for me but I would suggest that You call the Vancouver Office and get all time and dates and finances squared away if you have to take time off from work. The work was good and the clean up was good but they definitely need to get their act together.

I was very impressed with the energy audit,
Santa Rosa Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
did some IR imaging to show heat loss and did some air infiltration tests. The reports were very thorough and professional. My house was in pretty decent shape, and he expressed that without trying to upsell me on anything I didn't need. I did have some rooms in the house were I wasn't getting enough airflow, he made some recommendations to change the duct work. We had him do the work and his crew worked efficiently and professionally. I was satisfied with the results. Afterward I had 2 separate instances where I wasn't happy about my AC performance, and
Santa Rosa Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
came out each time to help diagnose it even though it wasn't his problem. I felt like he was really concerned with my satisfaction, not just fulfilling the duties of a job. I can't say enough good things, I had a very positive experience working with him, and would not hesitate to use his services again.

The installer called and was even able to arrive earlier than our scheduled appointment. He worked quickly and quietly. It looks beautiful and performs well. I started talking to him about energy savings and he even took the time to go into my attic and give me a quote on other energy efficiencies that would help out our older home. I would definitely use them again!

Barlet at
Santa Rosa Energy Consultants Provider Name Locked
was very professional, talented and very thorough in his work. He was easy to get ahold of via phone and arrived within 1 day to perform an attic inspection (I found via coupon on angie's list). He provided detailed estimates on the work. About 1-2 weeks later I had the insulation blown in, however the subcontractors didn't remove and replace the moldy insulation as was in my contract.

and his brother arrived soon afterwards and replaced the insulation themselves. Not only that, but they also improved the attic door seal that the subcontractors had just completed. The cost seemed about average from what I could see from multiple website searches. I highly recommend

Terrible. I took time to walk the inspector through my house. He never sent a proposal. Seemed more interested in doing the NY state energy assessment than in helping me insulate my house. Would not recommend.
