Home Energy Audit reviews in Arlington Heights

    Energy360 Solutions Inc
    They were great at every step. Very responsive and professional, and didn't try to oversell services. Their estimate was already lower than another, plus they obtained $800 worth of Nicor and ComEd rebates that weren't available with another company. They arrived right on time and did a great job.

    Had requested for the home energy assessment which was handled very professionally. The assessment was scheduled and the individual arrived at the promised time. He did his job very well and explained his findings very meticulously. Everything was fine so far and I was very happy with the overall process. The problem started after that. Post the assessment, I was told that I would receive a detailed assessment report along with their recommendations in about a weeks time. 2 weeks passed by and I had not received the report hence dropped an email to Donna Dattilo who promised to look into the same and have the report sent ASAP but did not receive it. I have followed up twice since then and this time around did not even receive an acknowledgement of my email. Since I do not have a report yet, this whole assessment was a waste of my time and money as I do not have details of the problem areas and recommendations which is the main essence of doing an assessment.

    Green Attic Insulation
    House seemed drafty and needed some advice on where we could improve the efficiency of our home. Green Attic came out on a Saturday and gave us a very detailed inspection and pointed out where we could make improvements. Also pointed areas in which we could have professional services done by Green Attic. The quote was very detailed on next steps and gave us a list of priorities as to which needed to be done. This way we can break up the projects. Tech answered all of our questions and was great when we asked to inspect out of the way places like 2nd attic and crawl space. Look forward with working wit Green Attic on future projects.

    Building Energy Experts Insulation and Supply
    Tony was very polite, professional, and informative during the audit itself and in the email exchanges we had before and after. We probably won't address the audit findings immediately due to other home projects we wish to proceed with. But we would not hesistate to hire Building Energy Experst to perform the work when the timing is right.

    Stop Wasting Energy At Home Inc
    Overall the company is very good. They did a thorough job. They showed me where the house needed some additional insulation so we actually purchase additional insulation. I felt that they did a good job of doing the job overall and I didn't have any problems at all. There were a couple of scheduling snap through that due to some of their issues and it as a little aggravating because I had to set up time that would be available for them and everything and they weren't quite on time because of that. They could have been communicated a little bit better.

    Stop Wasting Energy At Home Inc
    The work performed on the crack in the foundation of my house was done in a timely manner and the area around the house was left in good condition.  I have had no further water problems.
    As for the insulation.  I noticed immediately that the temperature of the coldest bedroom improved after the addition of the insulation.  The set-up work area for the insulation was thoroughly clean-up when they were finished.  This project took less time than I thought it would.
    I recommend using "Stop Wasting Energy At Home" for any work needed.

    They were very good. They were highly professional. They came in with all the equipment. They did a very thorough inspection of our house and provided a detailed report for us. We like them, and we would use them again in the future.

    USA Insulation of Chicago
    An energy audit revealed terrible problems with our home's insulation, and we decided to start with these issues before moving on to other, smaller, projects related to energy conservation.
    USA Insulation insisted that we would see a change in our home the very day they put in insulation, and I will have to agree that we did see improvements.
    I returned home to find 2" diameter plugged holes in the siding every 16 or so inches in 2 rows, one on each floor. We let the insulation cure/dry for a day or two before we painted the caps to match the siding color. In the end, we decided to repaint the whole house but only the main color, not the trim. I would suggest anyone with wood siding that has this type of insulation installed, consider the cost and time to paint the house because repainting just those plugs could be noticable if the house color has faded over the years. It is a very small price to pay (money and time) for the benefits we will see.
    There is a slight odor as the foam cured, but it was not toxic and not displeasant. It lasted about 48 hours before we could no longer notice the smell at all, but majority of the smell vanished in less than 24 hours.
    While it is too soon to discuss how well this work is saving us money, we did see 2 immediate changes:
    1) It is much quieter inside the house now.
    2) The upstairs is no longer a heat trap with unbearable heat in each bedroom (home has no central heating or air conditioning).
           Let me add a 3rd change now that we have experienced a few cold evenings:
    3) The house is indeed warmer and retains so much heat when the radiators go on. The radiators did not have to stay on long before the house maintained a good temperature.
    USA Insulatoin, as part of their energy audit, left us with several suggestions of "do-it-yourself" projects that can provide additional energy savings in addition the major savings we will see from this insulation work.

    Two auditors from Joseph James came out to our house with a high-tech infrared camera and performed a thorough inspection of all walls in our house from below the roof to the basement. We had had some seepage problems in the basement and had wanted to obtain an understanding whether more seepage issues were hidden behind our drywall. The inspection using the infrared camera gave us some important insights about (mostly minor) structural deficits in the foundation. For the same flat fee the auditors also offered to look into a drywall crack near the staircase that had worried us. Without opening the drywall, they could clearly identify the root cause behind the crack: leaking duct work. As they worked their way up the house, they went all the way underneath the roof and discovered a water leak near the chimney, which they immediately sealed at no extra cost. Lastly they gave us important pointers by identifying two major energy leaks in our house. . Finally, they went on top of the roof and gave it a thorough inspection. Still using the camera, which also shoots high resolution color photographs, they shot a series of pictures of the chimney. Using the pictures, they walked us through significant structural deficits on the chimney (above the roof line) and recommended a remedial course of action. Following the inspection, we contracted Joseph James for the chimney work. They completely restored all parts of the chimney that are above the roof line. Not only is the chimney structurally sound again, they also gave it a very nice appearance. Ron Staffa, the firm's principal, kept personally in touch with us along all steps of the way. He ensured that all work was performed diligently and thoroughly. What was particularly nice is that you never felt like he was pushing for business and trying to make a ten thousand dollar job out of a two thousand dollar job. Actually he impressed on us not to "overdo things" by trying small fixes first and only move to bigger and more expensive solutions if small fixes don't work. He also has a great wealth of knowledge concerning all sort of structural issues around the house and gave us worth while advice on other services around the house that his company does not offer. The scheduling of his company's work is somewhat haphazard, a little flexibility from our side and the fact that the chimney work could be performed without anyone of us being at home helped.

    I contacted Ron Staffa with Joseph James Construction, Inc., after my husband and I discovered water seepage issues in the new upstairs of our very recent home addition/renovation. From the first phone call through the final meeting, when Ron sat down and explained the results of the report, all our interactions with every employee of the company were very cordial and extremely helpful. After an initial consultation with Ron on site, an appointment was set up to have the thermal imaging done. Ron went to great lengths to get this appointment scheduled as soon as possible, as our situation was quite serious. Ron and two other employees of Joseph James Construction, Arthur and Andy, arrived punctually and worked diligently to provide a thorough assessment of our situation. They took time to explain what they were doing and finding, even as they were performing the assessment. What was especially beneficial to us was that, though we knew there was water damage and that energy efficiency had been compromised, the thermal imaging accurately revealed the extent of the damage and even revealed areas of compromise that were not identifiable by a surface inspection. It also revealed areas of insufficient insulation in existing areas of our home that were not a part of the renovation, which was additionally helpful. My husband and I found every part of our experience with Joseph James Construction to be pleasant and very helpful, and we would consult with them again in a second.
