CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“Quite possibly this service saved me thousands of dollars and man hours. The insulation approach I was thinking of doing in the garage to help with my upstairs bedrooms would not have fixed where the heat leaks were actually occurring. Without this service, I would never have determined the infrastructure insulation problem in my garage.”

“I appreciated the thoroughness. I feel he really looked all over my home for ways to save me money, big and small. The prioritized list of improvements was great.”

“There were definitely some surprises. I had anticipated that replacing my old windows or insulating my uninsulated walls would have been the next step for energy savings.  I was delighted that he found many places were I could save money, with a better payback, and a lot easier on my pocketbook.   He found places to save money I would not have thought of.”

“I was looking at getting my siding redone and all of the installers touted that a whole house wrap would translate into bundles of energy savings.  The whole house fan service (air infiltration test) and energy audit provided by Energy Audits of Chicagoland identified many other areas of leakage far worse than what was occurring in my outside walls.”

“The first step in getting the correct return on your investment is making sure you understand what is really causing the problem.  A pinpoint evaluation of heat leaks like this service provides is the only way to proceed.”

“I was impressed with your knowledge of all aspects of maintaining a home and that you were very generous with your time.”

“It was great that he did not have anything else that he sold, just diagnosis. I knew he would be looking out for solutions that were the best for me and my goals.”

“The photos in the report were very helpful to understand the issues and solutions. It was great that he delivered the report in person. We were able to look at some of the areas listed in the report so I fully understood what he was explaining.”

“As I was sitting in the basement during the whole house fan (blower door)  test, I could feel a wind coming through the walls and blowing through my hair due to poor insulation.  I knew right then the money I was spending would be easily saved in future insulation activities.  My hair was literally being blown around.”
