This Ithaca, NY customer is part of Tompkins County, a community with a very large solar initiative. As customer, Kelly, and his wife researched and learned more about solar power they thought, "Why isn't everybody doing this?" After receiving a free home energy audit from Halco, we moved forward with a 6.6 kW roof-mounted solar array. In a post-project interview, Kelly stated that he was, "Very impressed with the speed of the project- it only took 2.5 days." This customer also plans to work with Halco on a second project for insulation and a heat exchange unit. All in all, Kelly is very excited about this project and is even hoping to add more solar panels in the future!
These Cortland, NY customers have always been interested in renewable energy. After hearing of Halco through a flyer in the mail, the couple decided to contact us for a no-cost home energy audit. Taking into account the customers' current annual usage, the system that was designed accounts for approximately 72% of consumption. This 6.6 kW solar electric system was designed as a roof-mounted array of 24 SolarWorld solar modules and should produce around 6,222 kWh annually!
After this Aurora, NY customer went green with a newly installed geothermal system by Halco, he also decided to have us install replacement windows in his home. By replacing his windows, the customer is adding to the level of comfort and energy efficiency he will already experience from his geothermal system. In the picture above, Halco technicians downsized this customers window to standard size for comfort, convenience, and energy savings!
After performing a home energy audit for these Auburn, NY customers, it was determined that there was a significant amount of energy loss through the attic. The primary issue was a lack of insulation and to solve this, we added loose blown in cellulose insulation. Cellulose is an affordable and effective way to upgrade attic insulation and provide a more comfortable, energy efficient home for the customer!
Because the crawl space of this Syracuse, NY home was poorly insulated with visibly falling fiberglass insulation, the space was a major source of air infiltration and heat loss. Halco technicians insulated the crawl space walls with closed-cell spray foam and also installed a CleanSpace vapor barrier to the ground. This newly sealed and insulated crawl space will improve indoor air quality by preventing mold, mildew and moisture problems, and will make the home more comfortable and energy efficient!
This Oswego, NY customer decided to go solar to offset her electricity usage from the local utility provider. As designed, this 4.86 kW solar electric system should generate 5,085 kwh per year. This corresponds to a CO2 emissions savings of 6,102 lbs. per year (the equivalent to CO2 emissions from 3,766 pounds of coal burned)! The energy produced by this system is equivalent to 107% of the customer's current base load usage!
We replaced two typical, inefficient windows with these beautiful and energy-efficient bay windows. We do more than just install a window, we make sure to properly air seal and insulate each window for the best results!
