    I live in a 150 yr old (2 story) house which was a total wind tunnel. Cold in the winter and hot (especially upstairs) in the summer. They came with the door fan, couldn't believe how fast the temperature dropped in minutes. What a difference it made with all the insulation that was done. The crew that came everyday was very polite and never left a mess. If you had any questions-they were more than happy to answer. This is the best investment ever made on this house.

    By Meda L.
    Ithaca, NY

    We felt the immediate benefits of the "clean space' vapor barrier system in the crawl space and expanded foam insulation of the rim joists throughout the basement and crawl space. The bedroom and den over the crawl space was no longer chilly and 'dampish' as even temps dropped into the 40s; the basement is bone dry and comfortable; and the furnace doesn't kick on nearly as frequently as it has before on a chilly night. The custom-made basement well window covers are beautiful - absolutely delighted with the quality and craftsmanship that went into making something to fit our non-standard sized window wells.

    We needed some repairs done to our steam boiler fast. Most of the companies we called wouldn't even touch steam. 2 said they can look at it. Halco is now long done with the repairs, boiler works great, and I am still yet to hear back from the other company. A while back they also installed a chimney liner at the same building that solved a leak problem that had been going on for years unresolved. Very happy with the service.

    Customer Review

    By Catherine S.
    Ithaca, NY

    Every contact I have had with Halco has been excellent. This latest was no exception. Thursday, Jack M, came and put in my new toilets, and was very skilled and able (and willing!) to answer all my questions. Previously, Phil M fixed my pool problem when other technicians from other companies just threw up their hands. He performed magic, and it wasn't easy, but he was always cheerful and took the time to explain everything. The latest call was dispatched because a brand-new leak was discovered in my basement, less than 24 hours after the new toilets had been installed. It turns out the two were completely unrelated, but the Halco guy who came (I'm sorry, I forgot his name), arrived very soon after I called, and saw what the problem was immediately. He fixed the problem, and didn't even charge me -- not even for the part. And he was friendly and informative about his job and Halco. I am so totally sold on this company (Halco)! I will call Halco for each and every problem I have -- and plan to have an energy audit done soon. I'm telling everyone I know about Halco. Good Work!!!!

    I believe this program is a life saver for seniors on a retirement income as well as others with limited income who would never have the means to replace and repair the dangerous items in their home. Most people never realize what is going on in their home making it potentially dangerous to their health and potential death in some cases. Thank you for being there.

Who ever does the hiring for your company deserves a huge credit for putting together such a great staff. I took a leap of faith since I knew nothing about your company other than what was on your website. I couldn't be more pleased with how the energy audit and solar panel installation proceeded. Thanks for doing such a great job from start to finish. I am very comfortable knowing that the solar maintenance and tracking is in your hands. A big thank you to everyone involved in this project...Sharon

    Halco has obviously found the winning combination in customer service and a fabulous team of very experienced and knowledgeable plumbers. Special thanks to Dave McCullough and his team: Eric and Dan and the young apprentices who worked along side them. I was so grateful for Halco's immediate response to both emergency situations and their vast expertise in fixing the damage and solving the emergency problems quickly. Dave came back to fix the ongoing problems related to the original damage, broken shower nozzle, heating elements in the hot water tank, issues with the washing machine ...until the house was back to "normal"! Thank you so much for all you have done. They all deserve a bonus, a raise or Both! This level of service and expertise is rare nowadays, but Halco seems to know how to do it right! I will be calling Halco for all future plumbing and heating needs and singing your praises and referring customers. Sincerely, Susan Barnes, Victor, NY.

    Our central air unit stopped working last Friday afternoon(6/21) about 1600 hrs when it was about 90 degrees out. You had a technician at our house by 0530. Based on what was needed to repair the unit, we decided that replacing the unit was the best course of action. The technician had Steve contact me and he was able to get the new unit and a crew to my house by 1100 hrs on Saturday morning. I find this type of service to be outstanding. They switched out the unit with no issues. Special thanks to Steve for coordinating the repair and to the two technicians Matt and Eric who did the installation.

    I can't say enough about the crew we were worried at first when they showed up they didn't seem to know what they were supposed to be doing. However they quickly got on board with the mass amount of work ahead of them and never complained. We knew you had a no cursing policy however you have not seen our crawl spaces we were sure we would hear a few words here and there. Not once did a foul word come out of there mouths they were super polite and one of the best crews we have worked with.....

    By Anne N.
    Syracuse, NY

    One of the inspectors told me that Halco is a great company -- that the owner will go out on holiday calls before sending staff. I was very impressed by that. It seems rare that a company treats it's employees well these days. Everyone I talked with and met gave me the impression that this is more than just a job to them. When that is true, there is more of an investment by the staff to make sure the company succeeds -- which means the customers are treated well, too.

    It's obvious you invest a lot in training and continuing education, not only of your employees, but also of your customers. I was given a lot of interesting information, and presented with various alternatives & their financial and environmental impact to assist in making the best informed decision. I have had experience with 5 different HVAC/energy companies in the last 20 years and you are hands down the best in a class of your own.

    Customer Review

    By Anthony K.
    Pennellville, NY

    We were given very specific information about what the process of updating our geothermal heating/cooling system entailed. The quote we were given was done on the spot, on the day of the initial inspection. Surprisingly, it was very competitive with quotes from other companies with whom we consulted--although we had to wait weeks for the other quotes. What really clinched the deal, however, was how knowledgeable and patient your representative was--he explained things thoroughly and fully and was very patient with our many questions. We were extremely pleased with our decision to go with Halco!

    Clayton O. of Elmira, NY

    Customer Testimonial

              My only concern is that you don't pay your people enough! What a team! We smelled gas in the basement in the afternoon on Saturday 3/23. Called NYSEG, they came and found that the control valve inside the furnace was leaking gas big time. So, they red tagged it and shut it off. We called two local repair men. The first claimed to have 24/7 services, but turned out that the guy "on-call" was actually in PA at the time and couldn't get to us until Sunday morning. So, we called the next one and he would come out, but it was going to be $140 with no guarantee that he would be able to fix anything because we had a Singer furnace. Then we saw your ad in the Yellow Pages, and noticed that you offer regular business hours until 9PM everyday. So we called and got a person that actually works at your company (the other guys were using answering services). The nice girl said that she wasn't sure when exactly, but that someone would be to our house that evening and it would only be $89, and he would call ahead. The guy (Pete I think) did call and showed up at our door after dark. We were in the midst of renovating our kitchen, but he still insisted on donning his booties to walk through the kitchen to the basement. Once down there, he got right to work and checked the whole furnace over. He ended up finding a hole and two weld spots on the heat exchanger that were missed by our home inspector (we just moved in this past October). He said that he would have to red tag the furnace on top of the other red tag from NYSEG. Then he called his boss from our basement to see what could be done to get us heat ASAP. His boss told him to call Steve, your VP of Sales and Service. They talked for a bit, and then he handed the phone to me. Steve explained that we wouldn't be able to get a new furnace Sunday, but would have a new one first thing Monday morning. Also, he said that based on our income he would be able to get us a deal through NYSERDA to help with the cost of the furnace. And he would be able to get some other discounts for the time of year, service plan, etc. Also, he mentioned that he would be able to apply the $89 from the service call that day to the balance of the new furnace. And, he said that the tech would be leaving us with 3 space heaters to keep warm until Monday - free of charge!! I was so happy at this point I was speechless. Then Sunday, Steve called me three times to work out all the details of the financing and NYSERDA application. On a SUNDAY!! He had a birthday party for one of his grand kids that evening, and he is calling me to make sure we have everything in order to be able to get the furnace first thing Monday. The installers showed up Monday morning and I directed them to the external entrance to the basement, but they had their booties in hand to walk through the kitchen (still under renovation, but we did finish just in time for Easter). They ended up having to take the old furnace out in pieces because it was so big. They finished the whole installation by 3PM. Then as they were running the drain line for the furnace, they noticed the old saddle valve from where the fridge had hooked into the cold water was leaking (I had capped it, but it was still leaking, so I knew I would have to take it off and seal the pipe at some point). I explained this to them and they went right ahead and fixed it for me and they did a darn good job of it too! So again, I just wanted to reiterate that I hope you pay your people a lot because they sure do deserve it.
