rating  Efficient Homes Energy Audit & Insulation Work, by Dan

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, duct sealing, energy audit | Services completed: 1/2013

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: Efficient Homes came out as part of the BGE Home Energy Audit Program and spend a great deal of time inspecting my home. Brian Kennedy (highly recommended) went through my home with great precision and expertise and identified problem areas throughout the home which were leading to heat loss. I hired them to make the suggested imporvements and am very pleased with the results.


rating  Great experience, by Shannon

Services provided: insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 12/2012

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: We selected them as our home energy evaluator and improvement company through the Small Town Energy Program (http://www.smalltownenergy.org/). They were highly-rated through other STEP program participants, and we also had a good experience. They were very responsive to all of our needs and questions. They performed our home energy audit promptly and were able to complete the reinsulation of our second floor quickly. We have already seen a huge improvement in the climate control of our upstairs and will be reprogramming our thermostat downward again for winter nights. We anticipate being able to make similar changes to our energy use in the summer, come air conditioning season.


rating  Outstanding professional service!, by PS

Services provided: insulation | Services completed: 5/2012

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: The contractors were outstanding -- very professional and very respectful of not causing any dirt, dust or tracking throughout the home. They explained everything; allowed me to view the work in progress and upon completion.


rating  Efficient Home- Review, by Claudia

Services provided: air sealing, insulation | Services completed: 1/2012

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: We had a great experience with Efficeint Home. With the energy audit in hand, they helped me defined what would be the job to do that would have the greatest impact; they explained beforehand the implications of the work they would be doing, how the would do it and what would I need to have ready by the time they came. Their proposal was clear and quick- their cost was midrange; it pointed out the incentive programs available for the type of job. The job was done cleanly, efficiently. They also provided the documentation necessary to apply for the available incentives.

Homeowner comments: Contractors were very efficient and one stayed longer to plug leaks that were found at the last minute.


rating  Home insulation, by Art

Services provided: air sealing, insulation | Services completed: 11/2011

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: Contractor was very thorough and gave many free suggestions about what improvements I could make myself . Upstairs seems to be warmer (winter ) than previously . Basement is warmer also and less need for supplemental electric heat. It will be a while before I can assess the dollar savings from the work. One discrepancy was that infiltration test (blower door ) showed very little difference pre and post sealing even though there was much wall joint sealing . I suspect that there was a calibration problem with the blower door apparatus since different units were used before and after.


rating  An excellent experience from start to finish, by Kathryn & Richard Cardy

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 10/2011

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Every person we dealt with during our energy audit and the subsequent energy upgrade work was knowlegeable and highly professional. We appreciated their extra dedication to making our home as energy-efficient as possible, despite the challenges: parts of the house are 200 years old and required creative solutions. Everyone involved was generous with their time and more than exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Efficient Home LLC.

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: The whole team was courteous and professional. I work from a home office, and they were on-time, explained what they were going to do and how long it would take, and then did it in a clean and professional manner. It was refreshing to have a contractor team be so efficient and actually enjoy the work they perform. This includes the energy audit as well as the insulation team. Good work and good people ... a great combination. Thank you!

Homeowner comments: I am pleased with the assistance offered by Efficient Home to understand the audit and act on the energy recommendations. MASCO performed the insulation work. I found knowlegable and professional staff in both companies.


rating  Efficient Home, by Nancy

Services provided: insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 8/2011

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: The audit was fine. However, work was identified that Efficient Homes eventually decided was not needed. After the audit, the person who came out to explain the program and the rebates did not know his information and gave me incorrect information which I had to tell him was incorrect. Eventually I did receive correct information. The work appears to be done correctly, but I was told that the house is sealed at the high side of the scale, but that it is not a problem.

rating  Review of Efficient Home, LLC, by B. Baldwin-Voeks

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit, heating and cooling | Services completed: 7/2011

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: I found working with Efficient Home to be a good experience. Brian Kennedy was extremely helpful and answered all questions I had. He went above the call of duty when he mailed me some forms that I needed to complete my submission for rebates. He responded to all requests and questions in a timely manner. The other staff, too, was pleasant and helpful. There was some confusion about the install for our heat pump, but that was resolved and, other than it taking some time to schedule the heat pump install, all went well.

Homeowner comments: We were very pleased with both the experience and the results. The auditor was thorough and carefully explained both the tests and our options, based on the assessments. The work was scheduled and completed promptly, and their main office provided assistance with all of the forms for our rebates. We have noticed a tremendous improvement in the comfort of our home this summer, especially areas that used to get hot, and our electric bills are down significantly.

rating  I'm Satisfied, by Alicia

Services provided: insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 6/2011

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: The services completed by Efficient Home were good. The contractors came on time to get the job done. There was an ammonia smell the night after the insulation. We followed up with management, in which they came out a few times during the next week to check up on the smell to ensure that it was not the cellulose insulation. Since then, the smell has died down. The temperatures upstairs are now the same temperatures on the main level. It used to get extremely hot upstairs in the spring and summer time. I'm happy.

rating  Thank you Efficient Home!, by G. Drymalski

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, duct sealing, energy audit | Services completed: 5/2011

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: Efficient Home Services conducted the energy audit on my townhouse, made recommendations and performed work that has helped my home retain its coolness this summer. The workers were proficient and reliable, the paperwork, needed to secure my rebate, was explained clearly and made easy to complete, the administrative practices (reminders, phone calls, documents) were done in a timely and professional manner. My only complaint is that the belt on the truck that blew in the attic insulation broke midway through the project, and the crew had to come out a second time to finish the work. Things break, but I didn't appreciate having to take more time off from work to be here during the week to see the job completed. Other than that, I had no problems with the audits or work. The crew was friendly and cleaned up well. I look forward to an energy efficient home!

Homeowner comments: There was a delay at the beginning of the process between the energy audit and finally having a representative of Efficient Homes get back to me. The work was done well but then there was another delay when I had to have the paperwork to send to the Maryland Energy Administration to receive my rebate. In spite of this, I would recommend Efficient Home.
