    I was very surprised how thorough Ron was devoting several hours to the project and teaching me several issues. One thing I would have liked to hear is that our electric wiring downstairs wasn't up to code, but maybe that's not Ron and Halco's purview.

    Customer Testimonial

              Steve is one heck of a skilled professional in his clarity, approach, intellect and ability to turn around a negative initial situation. I know from experience owning two companies this is not easy to accomplish. Steve's openness and forthright, honest manner carries the day. Ron was kind and very well-versed in performing the audit and compilation of a coherent report and plan. Steve has worked with me since the 27th of February to reach an agreement on materials and scope of the replacement, the pricing to match me personal budget, NYSERDA paperwork and my concerns with focus and kindness... He is great. I appreciate his obvious concern for NYSERDA and their goals. Yesterday, I got to see this plan all come together. The installation process of my new furnace was fun to watch; your employees really know their jobs and work well as a team. All the guys were respectful, clean, organized and steady. Steve kept all on point, teaching team members as they went and assuring success. I was able to reach in my studio, while the install was completed on the other side of the wall from my studio. I had nothing to clean up after... ...You are welcome to offer my reference to anyone that is interested and that will benefit HALCO. A month from now, when my remodeling is complete here, I will be glad to show prospective customers your install in my home. I will do what we can to find you more business.

    Customer Testimonial

              Halco, I would like to thank you for the wonderful job your crews performed while insulating my house in Naples. As a result of the process, my home is much more comfortable this heating season! I have already sent you my thoughts on the men who actually worked on the task of insulating the house. However, I have been remiss in not informing you of the professionalism and expertise demonstrated by Energy Advisor, Greg Hays, and Supervisor, Ron DeRue during the entire process. Both gentlemen are very knowledgeable and were able to answer all of my questions throughout the project. Moreover, they were willing to listen and to incorporate my input into the process. They were very respectful of my home and ensured that all work was performed carefully and properly. When questions or problems arose during the installation, both were able to provide answers and solutions. In one instance, I identified what I thought to be a deficiency with the spray foam installation in the attic and above the garage. After reviewing the work that was performed, they agreed with my findings and made arrangements to have additional spray foam sprayed in. This helped to make the dwelling much more energy efficient. Halco is very fortunate indeed, to have two such highly qualified professionals representing your company. Additionally, on the advice your representatives, I have also signed a contract to have Halco service my propane furnace and water heater making me a platinum customer. Respectfully, William S.

    Air-Source Heat Pumps Installed in Hector, NY
    After

    This is one of two air-source heat pumps installed for a Hector, NY customer. The heat pumps installed in this home are ductless split systems that, like air conditioners, have compressors and coils that the can evaporate and condense refrigerant. Unlike air conditioners, they are designed so you can reverse the cooling cycle, and move heat from the outside to the inside of your home. Air-source heat pumps have become a popular retrofit system for households that have non-ducted heating systems in place. All noisy components are outside of the living space and the customer's windows remain unobstructed.
