    Brian Borchet was very knowledgeable and professional in his approach to the energy audit. He took the time to answer all of my questions and address the particular idiosyncrasies of my home energy challenges. He was on time and followed up in a timely way and was able to schedule the recommended work quickly and with regard to my schedule preferences.

    Planning (responsive and complete); Execution (rapid, creative and careful); Follow through (every detail attended to, no snafus). Perhaps most impressive was the quality of the personnel, from sales to final inspection, all outstanding. Your installation team (Aaran, Dalton, and Jeff) could not have been better.

    Please note that I cannot recommend HALCO until after the project has been completed in September. The initial contact (energy audit, solar array plan, contract signing, etc.) has been excellent but we need to see how implementation goes.

    Customer Testimonial

              Honey and Steven G. recently had a solar energy system installed by Halco at their Port Byron, NY home. In this video the couple speaks about the impact of this solar upgrade in their lives and their experience with Halco. "This company has done a wonderful job, and the people that have come out, everybody has been spot on! If they said they were gonna do something or be there at a particular time, they were there or you got a phone call 24 hours in advance," says Honey. "It really was professional from the start to the finish. The company should be just over the moon with pride because of the workmanship and quality work," adds Steven.

    Customer Testimonial

              The original furnace in Honey and Steven G.'s home in Port Byron, NY was running non-stop during the winter. It would often overheat the house way above the set temperature. As a result, not only they had an uncomfortable home but their energy bills were also extremely high. The couple then decided to call Halco to replace their outdated oil furnace with a brand new geothermal heating system. In this video the couple talks about the results. Their home is much more comfortable and the energy bill is much lower each month. The air in their home is also much cleaner. According to the couple, there is less dust and since the new geothermal system was installed the chronic night time headaches Steven used to have vanished completely. "We both couldn't be any happier", says Steven. "It is worth every penny and... just incredible!"

    Spray Foam Insulation in Painted Post, NY
    After

    After receiving a free home energy audit from Halco, this Painted Post, NY customer realized there was a significant amount of air infiltration in his basement. By insulating the basement walls with 2" of spray foam, we were able to bring this lower level of the home into the building envelope and make the home more comfortable and energy efficient. Unlike fiberglass, spray foam performs well in high-moisture environments, like a basement.
