We found HESS through Pepco's Home Performance energy savings program. Mohammed was responsive, arrived on time for the audit, and made sure to ask about any comfort issues we were having. After the audit, he took us through everything he found and made recommendations based on both energy savings and the comfort issues we discussed. He answered all my questions (and I had a lot), and explained in...

The representative we worked with, Mohammed El-Ghoul, was very knowledgeable, professional and patient. The audit identified areas that could be addressed to make our house more energy efficient. Mohammed helped us find the right combination of options to fit our issues and budget. The crew that came to do the work was very prompt, neat and thorough.

Individual arrived on time and went to work. At the conclusion, he emailed me the findings and recommendations. At that time, I was planning on replacing windows but during assessment, there was minimal heat loss through windows. Saved me several thousand dollars by not buying the windows. I have followed through on the recommendations and am impressed. Will use them again and recommend this compa...

Exceptional! The difference is night-and-day. We have experienced high humidity in our upstairs living area ever since moving into our home. We were also accustomed to our HVAC not keeping up with the hot summers. Days with outside temperatures in the 90s would equate our upstairs heat pump creeping up usually 6 to 7 degrees higher than what we had it set to. We would set the thermostat to 69-70 d...

Hess did excellent work in our house in Bethesda! The results of your test-out were impressive. Previously, our home needed 6582 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM50) blown out to keep the house at a -50Pascal pressure difference (according to the audit report), versus 3620 CFM50 with the test-out. This equates to your Natural Air Exchange Rate improving from .61 to .33, almost 50% improvement! Tha...

Our insulation damage problem turned out to be a bigger job than expected. Throughout, Mohammed and his team/s were a pleasure to work with. They kept us informed so we knew what to expect - and they delivered this and more. A snag we hit was attended to quickly at no extra cost to us. We were told to expect a cooler house - we definitely got this! I'm delighted to recommend Mohammed and his team ...

Very impressed with their technician's knowledge and professionalism. He walked throughout the house with me explaining energy-loss issues and pointing out a number of energy-saving suggestions. Also very pleased that the survey included leak-testing our entire home. His thermal imaging equipment provided visual evidence of heat loss issues. Written report I received several days later was very th...

Home Energy Savings Solutions is Amazing!!! I had an Energy Efficiency Audit done in February since part of the cost was prorated through my electric company (PEPCO), and Mohammed came out on time, was extremely thorough and knowledgable, and very meticulous. He laid out what the best "bang for my buck" was in terms of energy efficiency, gave me a ton of useful reading material in terms of my hous...
