    Hassler Heating & Air Conditioning
    Of the 3 estimates I had (Home Depot, True Energy and Hassler), Hassler was recommended by a good friend who is a business owner and knows the Bay Area business climate. Hassler provided the best price by far, and I felt very comfortable with them. Mr. Robert Mitchell explained what I needed and didn't need. The 2 others recommended replacing all my ducting, which would have driven up the costs considerably. And since my ducting had only a thin wrap of insulation, he recommended covering that with better insulation, which I did myself. The installation went well, though it took a little longer than they had originally estimated. They did a good job or routing all the misc pipes for drainage and exhaust of the heater after consulting with me about the routes. They ran out of time to bolt the furnace to the cement floor of my basement ( earthquake safety feature), but said they would return after my inspection to do that and anything additional the inspector found The installation inspection went well, and the inspector did not find anything additional. The one hiccup in the process was when they sent an inexperienced tech out to drill the holes in the concrete to mount the furnace to the floor. He didn't have the right drill bits to drill through the concrete and apparently rebar that was in the concrete. He seemed unsure of how to proceed. I told him I thought I had the tools to finish the job, and if he would leave me the screws & brackets, I would finish. Later that day, I found I didn't have the correct bits to drill the holes either. I called Hassler back and they sent another tech out to finish the job. Great job Hassler!

    Attic Bright
    Everything went very smoothly and the work was really efficient i'd say. The attic bright team were the first one to get back to me with a reasonable estimate on my project so that is one of the reasons i went with them. They explained everything to me including from the process to the pricing. The insulation we had was pretty old and probably nasty but attic bright really is a service worth trying out. Thanks again for such an amazing job.

    Hassler Heating & Air Conditioning
    For quotes process, I saw Mike Hassler himself on October 2. I also saw two other companies: ABC and Nahman. Nahman's estimator would only quote for a full system replacement, for more than $10k, and ABC, while helpful, felt like it was too far away (in the South Bay). Also Mike at Hassler convinced me of his and his company's expertise during the quote process. Mike made it seem like a small, agile operation, but upon working with the rest of the company, there is at least one bookkeeper, one appointments arranger, a construction manager, and at least two installers besides him. The reason I mention this is that while Mike made me feel well taken care of, he was difficult to reach after his first visit and quote. Another detail lost in the company process was that Mike said he could arrange the work "within a couple of weeks" (which I wanted) but when his quote went through his company process, it was 2 1/2 months. One of the things he and I discussed during his first visit was building out my air return housing and installing a proper return grate. But that didn't make it onto the quote in precisely those terms. Mike used more general language in the quote and didn't revise the quote when I asked him about it, just saying, verbally "Yes, that's covered." This put me in a bind later, which I will explain. Ultimately, the company handled it in a way I think was more than fair. But leaving me feeling like I was left in the lurch for a couple of hours wasn't the best. Anyhow, there was a delay, first, where the company's bookkeeper was waiting for my 10% downpayment, and I didn't know it. After I worked that detail out with them (around 10/25/2017), a month had already gone by and the appointments maker delayed the process again by first making an appointment with me for a "pre-construction site visit" (scheduled for 2 1/2 weeks after I made the payment - 11/16/2017) and then, with little apology, cancelling it a day before it was supposed to happen (11/15/2017) saying that it didn't need to happen. (In fact, it did, because of the bind I mentioned previously.) Their next appointment was available another month later, on 12/14/2017, when the work actually happened. During the actual construction, the company sent one worker, which was fine - I was expecting he would take 4 to 8 hours. We mutually understood and agreed on all but the air intake work. For the air intake, Mike Hassler said he would include in the quote language for doing light carpentry and building out the air intake frame so that a proper grate could be installed on it. It takes up the bottom 2 feet of my linen closet, and is well situated in a central location in my house. When he sent the original quote, I couldn't find the language in the quote, so I asked Mike about it on 10/14/2017, and Mike called and said it was included and I shouldn't worry. So, being a trusting sort, I didn't worry. During the walkthrough prior the worker doing the actual repairs, he called that out, saying that he wasn't lead to believe that was part of the work. He said he would call Mike and work it out and let me know where we stood on that. A couple of hours later, he said that another Hassler truck was bringing the grate, and a few hours after that, it was clear that the company was planning on supporting that part of the quote, and doing the work. So it turned out well, but I hate feeling like I'm paying for being trusting, even for a few hours. I was worried it was my fault for not handling the quote/contract right, and that sucks. I'd even started making plans with a handyman to do the work separately, not knowing how Hassler would eventually handle it. The quality of the work was top-notch. The worker was careful to talk with me about how I wanted the grid installed, and he did it well. He also talked with me about the details of the work he would do, then did the work as promised. He communicated well, both arranging for a good lunch time for him, keeping it short, and also working with me to test parts of the system as he worked on it, and having me come down to the basement a few times to review work in progress and explain what was going on. My only two issues were: - The carpentry on my air intake return was not included in the written quote, and not transmitted as institutional knowledge about my construction, which put me, for a few hours, in a tough spot. - My urgency with this job was not transmitted or considered a priority by the company beyond Mike, the quote guy/owner, and the worker himself, so the actual construction didn't happen until 2 1/2 months after I received the quote, even though I kept pushing for quicker service. Aside from that, the work was good and the process (although slow) was effective.

    Thomas Judt
    We hired Tom to help us tackle an extensive remodel of our 3 bedroom/2 bath house. We hired Tom because he was by far the easiest to communicate with. Additionally, and just as important, he was one of few contractors who approached our project and budget with an perspective of how to make it feasible vs viewing it as an impossibility. Overall we are very satisfied with the work that Tom and his team completed for us, and the experience of working so closely together for 3+ months of active site work was a relatively smooth one, no small feat for something of this scope and with all the surprises that can arise.

    SOD Builders
    We hired SOD builders to do a complete kitchen remodeling and enlarge the existing space by expanding the walls several feet to the patio area. The new kitchen included the installation of the upper and lower cabinets, new paint, new backsplash, marble counter top, LED lighting and new dishwasher, stove and range. Allen, the project manager and Shirael (the lady that we worked with in regards to all the documents, payments and permits) from the office who did an outstanding job helping us. During the work, we clearly noticed that they were always made sure that the costs will remain the same and won���t pass the budget that was set at first and they made sure the job was done accurately. All the sub-contractors that they employed for our house (carpenters, electricians, painters etc.) were outstanding, qualified and experienced. We were very fascinated that our project Allen was able to complete the entire kitchen few days earlier than he promised us. We were always given a personal attention by Allen, who was very good in communication and organized and by Shirael. The new kitchen looks perfect and very useful and we strongly recommend them and we will hire them again for any remodeling project we may have.

    ATTIC STAR
    The people at Attic Stars are eager to please. They installed insulation under our floors throughout the crawlspace, cleaned up traces of an old rodent infestation, and rodent-proofed around the foundation. When I inspected the work the next morning I discovered that we���d had a slight mis-communication about how exactly we���d expected the insulation to be installed; so I called them up to talk about it. They showed up the following day to make it right, and made sure I was happy with the job.

    ATTIC STAR
    The work was very professional and all interactions were pleasant.  A crew of a dozen or so men came and did the work in one day, cleaning and vacuuming rate droppings and finding and plugging any entry holes.  There was still evidence of at least one live rat a few days after the work and Ron returned to see if there was anything he could do.  Could not find any entry places.  After about 2 more days evidence of the rat was not to be found anymore.  I am happy to still be rat-free after about a month but I still wonder where that (presumably) last rat went?  We have a one year warrantee so I will not hesitate to call again if there is any bad smell or any evidence of a live critter.

    SDI INSULATION
    They did fantastic. We had a little miscommunication with regards to things, and that was the problem that I had. I got my refund from PG&E and if I ever had to have work done, I would have them. I replied to an item that was on the computer,and that is how I found them. They were working with another gentleman. He is the nicest gentleman, he will go out of his way to help anyone. You can't ask for a nicer person that Francisco. He doesn't do the job. The job is done by the people they hire. I didn't realize that I had a broken lamp until it was all done, and the workers didn't tell me about it. Somebody has to watch what they do. The equipment that they used was a little more, and I guess they knocked the lamp over and didn't say anything. SDI have been very good as far as getting here and their appointments. They are a good company, it's just that it took time for the reports to get here.? Their price was pretty comparable, I didn't feel like they gauged. They respond to anyone phone call that you make and answer your questions. They were here at 8:00 and ready to go. The workers were clean.

    Advanced Home Energy
    I was expecting to get a rebate and I never did. And that's one of the reasons we did it because we thought we'd get mail and rebate. The experience was good. They called ahead. They were there when they said they'd be there. They were done when they said they'd be done. They did the job.

    Advanced Home Energy
    These guys were awesome!  We have been wanting to upgrade our home for a long time but just never seemed to get around to it. We got a letter from PG&E telling us about some rebates available for energy efficiency work.  We looked around and found several reputable contractors.  When Advanced Home Energy's auditor came out he spent 2 hours in our home walking around, talking and sitting down to really understand what we wanted to do.  He then gave me a proposal with pictures and information which was leaps and bounds above the hand scribbled estimate that we got from the other guys.  It wasn't a difficult decision to go with them, and it was definitely the right one.
    They showed up promptly the day of the work.  It was raining that day and the guys were great about putting down tarps and wearing booties in the house (I didn't ask them, they just did it).  Jose, the main guy, let me know the plan and went over the scope again with me.  He and his crew were super nice and very professional.  They were in my house for two weeks doing all the upgrades.  It's construction, so there was definitely noise and disruption to the house, especially with the wall insulation where they drilled into the walls and pumped their insulation into the wall.  It was pretty neat to see the process.  Each day they cleaned up nicely and overall were very courteous and careful around the house.
    The solar took a while longer to get installed.  A different team came a couple weeks later to install the system.  That went very quickly, only took a couple of days to install.  And now we finally have solar panels on our roof!  I haven't gone up on the roof to look at the work but our bills have gone to $15/month from around $125/month before.  I wasn't expecting such a big drop so I'm super happy about that.
    Overall, great people and great company!
