I provided Mike with the information of my existing system. He got back to me by the end of the day with a quick calculation recommending that my existing system is fine. He also examined my roof from Google Maps and could tell I didn't have enough room for solar hot water. I really appreciated the response and the professionalism. If I ever need service I will definitely contact Solar Living for ...

The hot water heater that is attached to the circulator was leaking water and needed to be replaced. I felt Solar Living did a good job. They were able to get the new tank and install it in a timely fashion at a reasonable price. We had a minor glitch that caused us to reschedule, but it was an issue with an employee's spouse being sick, so I don't hold it against the company. The guys were very n...

The system has been working great for us this past summer with out a hitch!  The kids love it, we love it and best of all my son learned how to swim with out floats.  He never wanted to get out of the pool it was so warm! I get temperature's up to 90 and average out at about 85!  I have received many compliments from guests and am now an advocate of solar heating for any pool! Thank you for your s...

Aggressive tele-marketing department is making this company a big turn-off for me.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Nothing. I am in a condo complex and not eligible for a solar conversion. I told them that. They keep my private number on a marketing list, and call five times a day until the point that I can't answer my phone or check my messages. Most of the caller i.d. number's are from them. I ask them not to call, they have not stopped. So I base my review on how agressive their tele-marketing departmentt is, and insensitive. I guess, if I could go solar, my instinct tells me that this company would not be in the top 4, or would need a lot more research....sorry.

Sorry to hear of your problem with a solar company calling you. But I believe you have placed a comment with the wrong company. We have no record of you contacting us for solar panel installation, nor of any inquiry for any homeowner in a condo association. We also do not harass people with calls and do not use a telemarketing firm. You may be confusing us with Solar City or other "free solar" fir...
