Description

GoodCents manages the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program offered by Dominion East Ohio. Including up to $1250 in rebates to encourage homeowners to make homes more energy efficient, it all starts with a comprehensive home performance assessment - an energy audit - if you will.

Included in this price, GoodCents technicians will return to conduct a quality assurance review of any improvements made....

They came on behalf of the gas company. I had to pay in advance. They were very punctual and very thorough. They explained what they were doing. They told me it would take about 3 hours and it really did. They did the infrared camera inside and outside. They did the basement, main floor, second floor and attic. Then they filled out, printed and bound a little booklet that told everything they did ...

I called and was given a first available appointment. Brian called prior to the appointment to confirm, and he arrived promptly on that date. He worked diligently through all the steps of the audit, taking time to explain what he was doing. Overall I believe the entire audit took approximately 3 hours, which was in the ballpark of the original time estimate he had provided in his call to confirm t...

Everything has gone as well as anyone could expect.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Incredible service, a four hour home inspection, new more efficient shower heads, faucet aerators and insulation on hot water heater pipes, all for $50.  He gave us a detailed report with a prioritized list of suggested tasks to make the house more energy efficient.  We had the work done and Good Cents is scheduled to come back to verify that all of the work has been done correctly.  If it hasn't they will point out problems and follow through with the contractor until satisfied.  I can't believe that there is a program like this and I couldn't be more satisfied.

Fantastic. Jim and John are very knowledgeable and hard working. They were fun to talk with (good thing, since the audit takes up to four hours) and very neat. They wore shoe covers or slippers and were very respectful of my home, even asking for permission before they ventured into any room or needed to open a door. I am planning to recommend this GoodCents audit to EVERYONE I know who has Domini...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I had been considering having a home energy efficiency audit completed through Dominion East Ohio; their customers are able to book one that is conducted by GoodCents for a $50 fee. After reading good reviews on Angie's List for GoodCents, I booked a date and time. As I needed a Saturday I did have to book four weeks in advance. It was well worth the wait. Jim, the lead auditor, and John, his trainee (soon to be on his own), conducted a multitude of energy efficiency assessments, including a blower door test and use of an infrared camera to show me where air leakage is sending my heat right out of the house. They also checked for carbon monoxide, changed my furnace filter and gave me a bunch of freebies including pipe insulation, low flow shower head and faucet aerators. They left a detailed report of recommendations that will help me save a bundle on energy costs. They also gave me lots of verbal recommendations and I took notes on every idea they shared.
