    DAVID SELLERS MECHANICAL
    TL:DR - If you're looking for top-notch work and peace of mind, look no further. Long Version: My husband and I purchased our home in late 2018. It came equipped with a whole house (3500 sqft) micro-zoned radiant heating system. 16 loops, each controlled from a different thermostat. The tankless heater that provided heat to the system also preheated our domestic hot water. Our heater was an Italian-made product (Cosmogas) that was installed in 2005, and, at the time, sold by Capital District Supply. In the 2 years that we've lived here, it was clear this thing was going to give us trouble. A leaking mixing valve - leading to three service calls to different plumbing/hvac companies in town (Saratoga Springs) - resulted in hundreds of dollars spent on a clearly failing machine. I was billed for service calls even when no work was completed. Two other plumbing/hvac companies even told me they'd prefer to not take the job. After the last failed service call (a plumber replaced the mixing valve with the part I had already ordered and had on hand), we ended up with antifreeze from the heating system in our domestic hot water. We were at our wits end. I came across David Sellers Mechanical through an exhaustive Google search for hydronic heating experts in the tri-state area. I called and spoke with Rebekah, David's wife. I can't say enough about how empathetic, understanding and professional Rebekah is. David speaks highly of the work she has put into filling their website (davidsellers.com) with consumer protection information, and if you look for yourself, you'll see what I mean. I've never seen anything like it. It is pretty clear that this business is ethically sound. Rebekah told me David was out on his motorcycle but she would pass along my message. Not 10 minutes later, David called me from the road, and an hour after that, he was at my home. He listened to the long history of our issues, and walked through the system with me. By the end of his visit, he gave me a quote for replacing the tankless heater and getting our system running again. He also told me he could start work on it in less than a week. The following day, David sent me his contract. I responded with another request - to replace the electric hot water tank as well. He was able to agree to do so without changing the quoted/contracted price. This alone amazed me. Fast forward to later in the week. David and his colleague Kevin spent two full days removing the old equipment and installing a top-of-the-line, American-made (Lochinvar) combi-boiler and (Bradford White) electric water heater. The work they completed is impeccable. Every joint, every run of copper, every valve is installed with the precision and neatness of a true master of the trade. They left the area cleaner than they found it, and never hesitated to explain exactly how and why they were doing what they did. The bottom line is this: if you want the skill and craftsmanship of a master mechanic, you have to be happy to pay...not for the hours they spend physically completing the work, but for the many years they spent perfecting their skills. If I had to do this all again, I would have had David attack the problem from the start rather than throwing money at lesser technicians.

    Matt and Ben were excellent. Requested quote, Matt came and gave quote next day. One and half week Ben and other guy came and installed the furnace. Both Ben and other guy were honest and decent folks. Their price was good. I am glad I found them.

    Went well. Crew was very courteous and respectful. They had to stop back to address a couple issues which they did a few weeks later. Pete the owner is a man of his word. Easy to work with.

    Father & Son Home Improvements
    Mark was very professional and arrived on time to conduct the inspection. ?He took me through my home with his infrared camera and demonstrated areas where potential heat loss could be occurring, including the attic and basement, and made recommendations that I could do myself to reduce heat loss. ?The information he provided that will allow me to improve the efficiency of my home was well worth the cost of the inspection. ?I would strongly recommend any home owner in upstate NY have this inspection performed and Mark is the right man for the job.

    True Building Performance
    True Building Performance did a great job. First, the energy audit helped us understand the different areas to pay attention to in order to have the most efficient home. After the audit, we decided to hire them to redo our insulation as it quite poor. They did a great job and even though they did it in early spring, the difference is already noticeable. The crew was friendly and quick. They accomplished the job on the original timeline given to us and were unconcerned if we were home while doing the work or not.

    If I could give this company an A+ I would. I apologize for the very long review, but this level of service and professionalism deserves description. Feel free to skip to the last paragraph if you're pressed for time. I initially contacted Peter Collisson to investigate a problem with ice damming in my home in late 2013. He returned my email promptly and arranged to meet me in short order. He determined that the problem was likely related to inadequate attic insulation and suggested installing open cell foam insulation. Because the front slope of my roof was located over a vaulted ceiling and this area was inaccessible, he warned me that the foam might not completely resolve the problem. I elected to proceed and not to remove the existing fiberglass due to cost. The installation went smoothly. However, after the initial "off-gassing" of the foam should have resolved, I experienced a persistent unpleasant odor in my living space any time the windows were open, particularly on hot, sunny days. Since my attic is small and unventilated, I assumed it would probably take a while for the odor to air out. It improved slightly, but not much, over the next couple of years, resolving only during the cold winter months. I finally couldn't stand it anymore and contacted Pete, fully expecting him to tell me it had been too long since the installation and I should have called sooner. To my surprise, he contacted me immediately, quickly came to assess the situation and determined that the best immediate course of action was to seal any openings between the living space and the attic. His colleague, Scott, sealed the gaps around the junction boxes, vent ducts, etc. When the odor improved only minimally, Scott promptly returned and double-checked the seals, found a couple of small gaps and closed them. When some of the foam leaked into one of my ceiling fans, he spent a considerable amount of time cleaning it out. When I call him back because the fan was making a loud tapping noise, he returned, took the fan apart, scraped out all the hardened foam, and reassembled the fan (which looks and works like new, by the way). All the while he was unfailingly pleasant and professional. Unfortunately, the odor persisted. By this time I had become quite sick with an unrelated illness and it was another year or so before I was able to return to work and again contact Pete about the odor. Again, he called me immediately, set up an appointment right away, and arranged for his crew to come the next day to remove all the fiberglass insulation, which he suspected was the source of the odor, at no charge to me. His crew was personable, professional, polite and thorough. While they were removing the fiberglass they found an area behind it along the soffits that had been missed during the initial foam installation and they now plan to return in the next couple of days to install it. If they hadn't been honest and pointed it out to me, I would never have known about it (they were well aware of my pathological fear of attics). I never review a company until my business is absolutely completed, but Peter Collisson and his crew have so exceeded my expectations to date that I couldn't see any reason to delay. Their professionalism, honesty and willingness to stand behind their work and please a customer is truly rare and refreshing. If you ever need any services that fall within the expertise of this company and have the opportunity to work with them, I strongly suggest that you take it.

    These guys were great. Pete, the owner spent lots of time telling me the good and bad of my situation and describing possible solutions. It cost more money than I had hoped but what doesn't? When the men came and did the work they were on time, worked as a team, cleaned up afterward, etc. Scott , the supervisor was very helpful and knowledgeable too.The attic was extremely hot and uncomfortable for them but they worked hard to get the job done in one day to minimize our discomfort. One winter has passed and we had one big snowstorm and no water leaking. We did have a problem with and exhaust fan they installed causing too much noise from vibration. They came back 3 times to make changes and it had to cost them to make it right but there was no further charge to me. They even installed a remote thermometer so I could monitor the heat in the attic during summer days to ensure proper ventilation. I would definitely call them again.

    Excellent. Arrived on time, respectful of me and my home, offered suggestions regarding what parts of the insulation work I could do myself to save cost, and explained every step of the job along the way. I'm on the National Grid budget plan, heat with natural gas. My bill just dropped by $50.00 a month.....can't beat that savings!

    Ethos Homes LLC
    Very well for the most part. The owner was very friendly, professional and punctual. I was notified timely of any changes to the schedule and worked with me to obtain financing through NYSERDA (though it was not used). I also appreciated the owner agreeing to add additional small jobs to the contract. I was pleased with how things were going (the sub-contractors were timely and cleaned up after themselves). There was one exception, the final sub-contractor. The painter was initially professional, but I was later disappointed in his behavior (once he balked at available times to work and said I could leave my key like [others], when I was not pleased with him washing paint brushes in the main bathroom, of my 1 and 1/2 bath home, I was told he left it cleaner than he met it, on the final day of painting he called at the exact time he was supposed to arrive to say he had a flat tire (coincidence? perhaps), and showed up almost an hour later with the owner of Ethos Homes. I would definitely recommend using Ethos Homes LLC, despite the behavior of one sub-contractor. The owner is very professional and the work is done well.
