    Green Attic Insulation
    We hired Green Attic to insulate our unfinished attic. They were prompt, efficient, and accommodated all of my requests for walkways to access key areas. And their pricing was extremely competitive, better than anywhere else. We were so pleased with their work, we immediately rehired them to improve the insulation in the back portion of our house. It was a complicated job, in the middle of a snowstorm, just before the polar vortex weekend and they went above and beyond what was initially anticipated to improve the insulation in every manner possible. They patched and repaired all the walls and cabinets in the room, being as neat as possible and asking for my thoughts and opinions along the way. It was a very messy job and there was dust everywhere, but that was unavoidable. Be prepared for a lot of dust and mess if you have insulation work done. On both jobs, the office staff helped process all of the ComEd rebate paperwork, and gave us all the appropriate documentation for our files. We were very pleased with Green Attic and would recommend them.

    Green Energy Improvement
    This was exactly what we needed. Our upstairs in our bungalow had been pretty cold and with a little one now in the house, we wanted to be prepared this winter (before investing in more expensive options, such as new windows or exterior). We could feel an immediate difference, even without seeing the air testing Ken performed (which showed that air leakage was reduced by 40%). The team worked hard all day and cleaned up well after the insulation was complete.
     Some things I really liked about working with Green Energy Improvement: 
    * Great business model. There was hardly any wait for the estimate or install. 
    * They took care of the Nicor rebate and just gave us the credit on the bill (so we actually paid $2568). This was awesome because it showed they were confident our air leakage would be reduced by their work and it saved us time! 
    * Great communication, fast responses to questions. 
    Highly recommend!!

    Update -- 1/7/15: We're in the middle of another polar vortex or something, but we just keep saying how lucky we are that we invested in this insulation before winter began. Seriously, this is probably the best investment we've made into the house since we moved in. We haven't turned the space heaters on once. We still feel some draft upstairs (over the front porch), but we're comfortable sleeping. Most importantly, the baby's room is EXTREMELY well insulated. Thank you Green Energy!!!

    Building Energy Experts Insulation and Supply
    The big deal from Building Energy Experts turned out okay. Considering that you can get the same thing through utility companies for 50 bucks I would rate the price a 'C'. Maybe I will use this provider in the future.

    Residential and Commercial Inspection Service LLC
    Jeff's most important focus in the inspection is safety, but he also teaches my clients about their future home, its systems and the life expectancy of major systems such as heating or a roof.  He takes time to explain how they work, how to take care of them and
    whether they need repair or should be replaced.  
    Jeff is very knowledgeable, professional, honest and provides the future homeowner with a very in depth inspection report complete with photos. The report becomes a reference point for years to come.  He is also available should questions arise after the inspection.
    I highly recommend Jeff and will continue to use him in the future.

    Intelligent Energy Solutions
    It was a satisfying experience. He was very responsive in emails and flexible with scheduling. We were treated like a full service customer even though we had the great Angie's deal to use. He was prompt and efficient. All his equipment was set up easily and neatly.
    Tony had me walk with him through the inspection and showed me cases of temperature differences, needs for better sealing and so on. Any questions I had were quickly and fully answered.
    His report provided a large amount of information that we can use to make energy improvements and save money on our heating and cooling. I was quite satisfied with the service and would use him again for additional home energy improvement work.

    Domicile Consulting LLC
    Ross investigated how well different areas of the second floor were insulated (including finding a panel that was not insulated at all). He talked us through a few different options, but strongly recommended that we use spray foam insulation to both replace the existing insulation, as well as to insulate the attic from the outside, rather than insulating the rest of the house from the attic (the attic got very hot, and the previous insulation wasn't enough to keep it from heating up the rest of the second floor). After following his advice, we've had dramatically better results upstairs, it stays comfortable and I'm sure we're using less energy as well.
    Ross was also extremely helpful in talking through with us other things that would and would not have a large impact on our energy usage--he found gaps in our ductwork by the furnace that we could easily cover to save energy, and he told us to stop completely closing vents on the first floor, which we thought would help force the cold air up to the second floor (turns out it doesn't really work that way). We told him a couple of other items that we were considering changing to improve the energy performance, and he gave us great advice about the kind of impact those changes would have (typically, they were much smaller than we were thinking and not really worth spending lots of money to do).
    Lastly, Ross gave us great recommendations and resources to help us do the work (in particular, recommending insulation companies to get quotes from).
    Ross was extremely professional and courteous--he was absolutely wonderful to work with, and we're so pleased with the results we've gotten from following his advice.

    Intelligent Energy Solutions
    They did a thorough, professional job. The person performing the audit explained what he was going to do and then did it. Before he left, he explained the results and what recommendations he would be making in the report, answering my questions. A few weeks after the audit, I was sent the report with recommendations and imaging.
    In intend to follow-up with them to address some of the issues prior to winter. I would recommend their services.

    Priority Energy
    We got three different quotes for the insullation, and Priority was significantly better than the others.  But more importantly, Priority didn't just want to place the insullation, get paid, and leave, but they really were focused on the outcome, making ours a more energy efficient home.  That attitude came forth throughout the entire process.  I hope to use them again to continue creating a more green home.

    The only complaint is that it took longer than expected to finish up some of the work, and we were left with an unfinished room for like a week which was annoying, but it was eventually all finished up.

    Smart Sealed - Insulation Weatherization Audits
    They arrived about 8:00AM, put down drop cloths and did the work. They pointed out a roof problem in attic (will need repair) and left a section accessible for that. Cleaned up and finished at 5:30PM. Messy job but they cleaned well. They also replaced weatherstripping on basement door. Tested our leakage and achieved 20% reduction.

    Cheryl and her assistant, Henry who���s an engineer, did an excellent job! At first, I thought the price was a little high, compare to other companies I called. But I was told the price was based on the square footage of the house. Cheryl and Henry set up the door blower and examined every nook and cranny of the house. They spent literally the entire day testing and examining. Then Cheryl came back later at night to discuss the preliminary report. She later emailed a completed report. I was impressed with the amount of time they spent in the house and in the report, and I was very happy I chose them over the other 2 companies I called. I don���t know if the other 2 companies would have spent as much time as Cheryl and Henry did. I felt we really got more than our money���s worth. In fact, I was so pleased with their work that I hired them to oversee the air sealing and insulation work to improve our energy efficiency. Cheryl truly knows what she is talking about. Don���t let her gender fool you. She is an experienced carpenter by trade who has also completed a Ph.D. in anthropology. She speaks like a professor but works like a blue collar worker who���s not afraid of getting dirty. You can tell she really loves what she does. The only recommendation I have is to ask about the scanner they use to see through the walls. I was told that ideally there needs to be 18 degrees difference between the temperature outside and inside the house. Sometimes, they can get a good-enough reading with less. Ask them first about this issue and whether it is a good time of the year to do the scanner test. If not, they might recommend you turn on the HVAC during the test.
