    Customer Testimonial

              On Friday Shawn came by to make various adjustments to our geothermal system. The system is significantly quieter (thanks so much!) and we now have adequate hot water. The only remaining issue is that we would like to know the current efficiency through your monitoring system and also get access to the web-based monitoring system. We both want to take this opportunity to thank one and all for the unbelievable service that Halco has shown during this whole installation. Shawn has been absolutely exceptional in his help and devotion to making things work, and every other person we encountered from Halco was very polite, helpful and a delight to have around. We have never encountered a company that is consistently so good. Thank you. The Manzanos were here yesterday and we tried to convey our high respect for Halco. The final payment will be in the mail on Monday. We look forward to working with you all in the future.

              To everyone at Halco - Wishing you all a great Merry Christmas and all the best of the New Year. Berta and I are so happy with our new furnace and heat pump. We love the new coziness-warmth it has given to our home. Huge thanks to Rex, Brett, John, and Sean for the fine tuning of our thermostat to get it functioning just right. My wife no longer mentions that "she is so cold" anymore! Such a welcome new era here after 25 years of her being cold.

    Bernie & Geri B. of Dryden, NY

    Customer Testimonial

              Hal, First of all, your sales/tech representative, Ed Okonsky is one your best company’s assets. Ed presented himself and Halco with professionalism and proved to be a “subject matter expert”. I was impressed with his ability to patiently absorb my (verbal) basic knowledge of HVAC and then further educate me on those things that I was not familiar with, to build my overall confidence in Halco. He respected my knowledge and did not try to intimidate me with his extensive knowledge base. Much appreciated! I had other HVAC companies come to my home to advise and quote. Although you were somewhat higher in price, we made the choice to hire your company. My wife and I are very happy with our decision. From the very start of initial consult, on to the expert install team you assigned to our home...your company was expertly and professionally represented. I can give no higher endorsement of your company, and the folks you sent out to complete our home project, regarding assessment, quotation (response in 24 hours) and install!! Regards,
    Bernie & Geri B.

    Customer Testimonial

              I wanted to thank you for the team effort of Chad, Jeremy, Shawn and Vince for their technical expertise in the annual inspection and addressing some concerns I had. Also for Jeremy for the energy efficiency analysis, in particular the blower door results. I have since followed through on additional research on my unit and what would be a reasonable payback. With your staff assistance and what I have personally completed, I feel my unit is reasonably energy efficient. If you have any questions of what I have done please have Jeremy provide an update. I have kept him informed. His "audit" motivated me to take action on some hunches I've had since we bought the place. Perhaps you were not aware but for four years in the late 1980's early 1990's part of my responsibilities were to the Director of Cornell Cooperative Extension in overseeing a contract between the Cornell Agricultural Engineering Department and the State Energy Office. The program was called, Save Energy, Save Dollars. It was about a 1/4 million dollar per month contract with 50+ energy technicians who audited farms, small businesses and not-for-profits throughout NYS, including New York City. The Ag Engineering Department developed many auditing formulas and taught and monitored the technicians as they conducted the audits. Again, thanks to the recent team effort.

    William S. of Fayetteville, NY

    Customer Testimonial

              William S. of Fayetteville, NY discusses his geothermal system installed by Halco. William’s system is fairly complex as it needs to accommodate a nearly 200-year-old home. The system is comprised of 4 heat pumps: one for the adjoining apartment, one for the bottom floor of his home, one for the top floor, and a fourth for the hot water system. As a Climate Scientist, William has been considering going green for 20 years for two main reasons: (a) he is keenly aware of the importance of getting off fossil fuels and reducing his carbon footprint, and (b) he realizes the potential cost savings. William is very passionate about this subject and is a member of the steering committee for HeatSmart CNY. HeatSmart CNY is a campaign designed to make it easier and more affordable to install clean heating and cooling solutions as well as energy efficiency upgrades. After a careful evaluation process, Halco is thrilled to be a selected installer for this program! Learn more at HeatSmartCNY.org

  • "Thank you so much for all of your help with our recent furnace/air conditioner situation." Read Full Testimonial

    Kathleen M. of Phoenix, NY

    Customer Testimonial

              Dear Hal, Thank you so much for all of your help with our recent furnace/air conditioner situation. My husband and I were particularly impressed with how promptly and professionally everything was handled. From our initial discussion with you to the installation of the units, we could not be more pleased. The crews you sent were professional and courteous and they worked hard to get everything done in one day. This prompt response was particularly important to me because I have multiple sclerosis, which is further aggravated by the heat. I asked Laura if she had mentioned this to you, thinking this had been a factor in how quickly everything was installed, but she said that she never even thought of mentioning it. This makes your quick response even more impressive. We are pleased with how everything worked out and would not hesitate to recommend Halco to our friends and family. Best regards, Kathleen M.

    Air-Source Heat Pumps Installed in Hector, NY

    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.

    Duel Fuel Hybrid Heating System in Naples, NY

    This Naples, NY customer previously had a pellet stove and wall space heaters, which resulted in uneven heating. Halco technicians installed a Duel Fuel Hybrid heating system with a 96% efficient propane furnace and an air source heat pump. In addition to the heating work, we also installed central air so this customer can stay comfortable in the home no matter what the season!
