Great job by Abacus Energy Solutions
Workers were punctual, professional, and focused, Work looks great and was done in good time as promised.
Efficient and professional
In the autumn of 2012, I requested an CEWO assessment by Abacus Energy Solutions, LLC. My account Manager, Josh Stewart was a personable young man and went out of his way to answer my questions. The assessment, included Air leakage, duct testing & combustion appliance testing. He advised me of the work necessary to qualify for the greatest rebate available at that time and the work that could be considered optional. The necessary work was the air sealing throughout the living areas, upgrade of the attic insulation to R-49, upgrade to the crawlspace insulation, installation of a vapor barrier, upgrade the crawlspace insulation to R-21, re-insulate & seal the duct lines, replace the old water heater with a High Efficiency Ruud 50 gal electric Water Heater, and replace my old furnace/heat pump/manual thermostat with a Diamond Lennox heat pump, air handler & a programmable thermostat. I decided to have the drywall damage caused by a roof leak repaired also. The workers performed the work quickly, cleaned up after themselves, & tried to minimize the disruption to my home life. In carrying the materials & equipment in and out, they did cause a small chip to a stained glass window. I intend to completely remove the stained glass before selling my home, so it was a small price to pay, for a home that is comfortable year round.
Good service from Abacus, not so consistent quality from the subs
The email asked me to review solar; i didn't get solar, just the "weatherization" program. Abacus provided good service; the sub-contractors, however, were sometimes problematic. Peter (of Abacus) was always very quickly responsive, even coming to my house directly to correct the errors of the subcontractors. There were a few problems that caused me some stress, and I was happy that Peter always seemed to welcome my feedback. He also paid for the relocation of an exhaust pipe that was improperly installed. I think my suggestion would be better vetting and more frequent inspection of the sub-contractors' work. I realize the subs need to make the work worth their time, economically, and want to get in and out quickly, but we, the homeowners, have to live with the results always. Some errors can't be corrected without additional time and expense.
Very professional, friendly and prompt.
Abacus Energy Solutions weatherized my home which was drafty and didn't have proper insulation and heating. My home is now sealed, insulated and low energy lighting. The crew were prompt and answered whatever questions I had regarding the products and materials they used for the project. Everything was explained in a professional and courteous manner from beginning to end. I recommend Abacus Energy Solutions to anyone with a home improvement project.
