Energy Audit reviews in West Chester
guys and roast them to eternity--over a low-flame fire that would cause excruciating
pain without ending their ignoble lives. They claim that they have studied
building science and have expert knowledge on how to make a home energy
efficient. But on the contrary, they are high school drop-outs at best, who are
motivated only by the prospect of making quick bucks from unsuspecting and
naïve new home-owners. From my experience with them, they do so by manipulating
and exploiting basic human traits like fear, curiosity, ignorance and
carelessness. They will tell you
guy shows up saying that the energy assessment of your home does not cost you
anything. If you agree, they will send you a second dude who will by default,
either find mold problems in the attic or some serious energy efficiency issue
in your home. We were new homeowners and when this second dude told us we had
mold in our attic, it scared the h*** out of us. He told us that we had an
insulation issue in the attic and that this was contributing to moisture
retention, which then according to him, was responsible for the mold problem.
He warned us that if remedial measures were not taken immediately, the mold
might spread and it could cost us a fortune to get rid of it. The next step,
according to this dude was to do a blower door test for $450. Another dude
showed up for this test, fitted a big exhaust fan on our door, and then went
around the house taking pictures with a regular digital and infrared cameras.
Then about a week later, their staff called us to schedule
an appointment to discuss the home efficiency issue with us. A time was set up,
and another dude showed up with the results of this test. He gave us a folder
of the results, with a personalized letter from his CEO in which the latter claimed
the “solid ethics, unparalleled quality, steadfast unity, and candid dialogue”
of his company. This dude also showed the “results of an independent survey of
with praises of
collection of comparative pictures that purportedly showed “heat leak” areas.
He told us that our attic and rim-joices needed more insulation, and that the
soffit vents had to be enlarged. Then he asked for permission to go around the
house and take some measurements. He went to the basement, flapped his
retractable measuring scale a couple of times, pretended to have measured the
spaces and checked things out, and then came up, and said that he needed to do
some calculations. He then worked on his ipad for about 10 minutes and said
that he was done with the calculations and was ready to tell us how much it
would cost to fix our energy efficiency problem. He flipped his ipad towards us
and bam! The figure was an astounding 8,989.00! Then I asked him if he could
give us any discounts, and he said that he could negotiate with his company for
a 5% discount and told us that we had 72 hours to respond to his proposal. I
then asked where this 72 hour deadline came from and he was speechless! It was
his way of saying “I am in control here.” Then I asked him to give me in writing
the details of the proposed work. He did not respond and said that their work
would be of unparalleled quality and that we would be very happy once it was
done. He further went on to say that if the mold spreads to the rest of the attic,
it might cost us 60 grands. Then he went on to say that they had a relationship
with us and that it would benefit us immensely if we went with his company, and
that he could start work if we gave him a 50% advance. By this time, I knew
that these guys were rip offs, would subcontract the work to someone else, and
cut out a big fat for themselves. I bluntly told him that like the other
previous dudes, our meeting with him was probably the first and last and that I
would not make a decision until I get quotes from a couple of other companies.
He was utterly displeased and left with a defeated expression.
The very next day I contacted two companies, and asked if
they could come over to my house, see what needed to be done, and give me a
detailed description of the work and a quote. The first guy showed up the next
day, and after three hours of climbing into to the attic, inspecting the entire
house, and writing a detailed proposal on our dining table, gave us a quote of
$3,000! There wasn’t any mold problem in the attic at all! The wretched souls
instilling a sense of fear in the minds of new home-owners like us, and engineering
a tactic that would motivate us to take uninformed decisions. Therefore, HOME-OWNERS,
do some shopping around before you sign anything with these daylight robbers.
I would recommend anyone who is wondering why their utility bills are higher than what they should be to hire RE for an energy audit. Money well spent!
