Contacted the company through their "Contact Us" form after hours on a Tuesday night. The owner, Ethan Horvitz, personally called me on Wednesday morning and was able to visit my house that afternoon to repair a major leak in my solar panel array. Very friendly and knowledgeable, he educated me about my system and presented me with multiple different options for how to fix/improve my system. He co...

I highly recom them for solar energy

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Solar Living did my initial pool solar installation 2 years ago on our new home in pt pleasant. Both Mike & Ethan are pleasant, professional, efficient. If they say they will be at your home at a certain time, they are on time. We recently had problems with our pool company and Ethan came out and went "beyond the call of duty" and solved our pool pump issues. Their fees are fair and I highly recom them.

Very well. The original installer 30+ years ago retired. I researched and decided to call Solar Living in 2014 to replace the roof panels. He did such a great job that we did not hesitate to call Solar Living again for this problem. Although the price may seem high, the parts were the majority of the expense not the labor.

Replace an old heating control box and converter activator valve that was originally installed 30+ years ago.

I had Mike and Ethan install pool heating a few years ago. They did a great job, explained everything well and in general made me very comfortable. Lat year one of the valves broke (as it turns out due to a part defect). When I called for help I got it very quickly and everything was fixed under warranty. This year when I just reached out with some questions about the set up I got answers in 30 mi...

Solar Living installed solar panels for my above ground pool in 2014 with such a short season to use the pool these panels extended the season from 3 months to 5 months.  I can now open my pool in May with a water temperature of 56 degrees and be swimming in it 2 days later (I do not swim in cold water) that is how fast these panels work..   We recently heard a banging on the roof during high wind...

Solar Living installed a solar panel pool heating system this May in a previously unheated pool that was too cold to enjoy even in the height of summer. The pool opened at 56 degrees, the panels were installed and ten days later the water was 86! Solar living came out to our house and suggested putting the panels on a custom-built rack to the back of the pool in a unused sloping part of the yard. ...

Everything was better than could be expected

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Solar Living installed solar heat panels for my pool about 20 years ago.  They have a service fee of $80.00 er year that covers all labor and a 25% discount on parts.  When I opened the pool this spring, we noticed that the valve was leaking.  I called for service and the tech was there the next day.  He did a temporary repair and also repaired some cracks in the solar panels on the roof.  Just came back today to replace the part..  When I asked for the bill I was told that the part was given to them and there would be no charge.  Can't ask for better service than that.
