Title: Home Energy Advisor

Matt D. from Halco

Email: [email protected]

My name is Matt Dennis, I’ve been with Halco since 2015.  I thoroughly enjoy working with folks to solve problems with their home’s energy costs and comfort issues.  I believe in making things better one house at a time.  I proudly subscribe to the idea of a Net Zero home, where you produce as much energy as you use.  I have an air source heat pump in my own home and solar on my roof.  I have no gas, oil, or any other combustible products in my home.  So, when I say I’m passionate about what I do, I truly mean it.

Max

I have two dogs; one is a 14-year-old beagle named Dipstick who can usually be found sleeping in the sunlight until its feeding time. The other guy is a 2-year-old mix named Max, who is nothing but a ball of energy.  He’s usually chasing his toys around or running from end to end in the back yard. 

In my time at Halco, I’ve taken part in fixing hundreds of homes and saving homeowners thousands of dollars.  Whether it be a basic attic insulation and air sealing job, to a complex heating and cooling system or a full Net Zero solution, I’m happy to sit, discuss and educate.  I’ve been asked, “What do you do at Halco?” The truth is, I teach.  I want to answer all of your questions and make sure that you know and understand what the problems are in your home. The last thing a homeowner wants is to spend money doing something that doesn’t fix the problem.  The best solutions aren’t always the most obvious, so let’s figure it out together.

              Hi Matt, I just want to tell you that Josh is absolutely great, just like you! He’s cordial, focused, hardworking, productive, patient, knowledgeable, … totally “on the ball!” I hope Halco recognizes his worth, and makes certain he has an upward path in the company. Between you and Josh, I couldn’t receive better support and service! Hal is lucky to have the two of you, and I’d like to tell him that!! Most gratefully, Jeanette

    Customer Testimonial

              "I am super excited about the crawlspace. Joe suggested I email Hal Smith too. I hadn’t sat down to do it yet, so he’s getting copied on this. We can’t believe Joe and crew did it in only three days. I haven’t gone down there yet...just peeked through the access window, but I bought a worklight string like Joe had to light up the place, so I’m ready. Now I can run a network cable down there that I’ve been holding off on doing. You can’t imagine how this answers a wish I’ve had for thirty years to make the space desirable to enter...clean, bright, dry, and odor-free. I noticed after the first day of work that the house didn’t smell musty. The new ductwork has made a noticeable improvement in the airflow to the family room, even before a new furnace. Of course I still eagerly await the new equipment next week. I’d love to be in the newsletter and you and anyone from Halco are welcome to a tour. We’re thinking of having a crawlspace-warming for friends and neighbors! Too bad the access can’t be any bigger. Take care of the back. See you soon I hope! Norm"

    Customer Testimonial

              I'm so excited about my ductless mini-split heat pump system. Now I have air conditioning as well as heat throughout my manufactured home and best of all, IT'S AFFORDABLE. My techs from Halco, Dan and Jacob were stellar as far as punctuality, quality and they were very, very, neat cleaning up every speck of debris in and around my home. I hope to show my neighbors just how great this system is. No more propane. This system is definitely perfect for our planet as far as no more fossil fuels. Thank you Halco for such great service.

    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

    This Dryden, NY customer had a 30-year-old gas furnace that was drastically over sized at 100,000 btu. We replaced the 80% efficiency, single stage furnace with a 96% efficiency, 60,000 btu, 2 stage furnace. At the same time, we added AC and did a duct cleaning for the customer!

    Attic Insulation in Historical Fayetteville, NY Home!

    This customer worked with Halco to convert his historical home in Fayetteville, NY into an energy efficient home. While the focus of this job was a complex geothermal system, Halco and the customer himself did a tremendous amount of work prior to installation. 

    We fully believe in the concept of “Reduce Before You Produce,” so the home was tightened as an initial step.  We vacuumed out all the loose fiberglass and spray foamed the roof decks and gables, bringing the attic into the thermal boundary.
