Home Insulation & Renewable Energy Services in Ithaca, NY:

At Halco, our goal is simple! We want to improve your home's overall comfort while increasing your home's energy efficiency. Our repairs and upgrades are specialized to target energy problems throughout the entire home. Sometimes your air conditioning system or furnace is not the reason your home is losing energy or driving up your utility costs up.

Most of the time, the culprit is poor air sealing and insufficient or old insulation in the attic, crawl space, or even the basement. Air can leak through cracks in walls or ceilings, but our spray foam insulation is designed to expand to fill these cracks. Getting the problem identified and fixed through a home energy audit now can save you thousands of dollars in the future.

In addition to home insulation, Halco offers a wide variety of renewable energy services including solar panel installation and geothermal heating and cooling.

Karin asked us to help co-ordinate your services with our delivery of an electric range, would you be available for an installation on the afternoon of 11/20/17
Project Location: Ithaca, NY
I have a few plumbing projects: * Bathroom faucet has a leak. I bought a replacement faucet and would like it installed. * Our kitchen sink drain does not have a vent, so it drains slowly. The plumber who visited last time said it should be possible to add a vent to improve it. * The shutoff valve for the water supply to the ice maker in our refrigerator leaks when we try to close it. Its a valve built into an inline tee, behind a drop ceiling in our basement. I will be at home on November 1 to have a new refrigerator installed. It would be great if a plumber could visit that day as well.

Project Location: Ithaca, NY
My house was serviced last night and it appears that my sewage pump is wearing out. I found the installation manual for the pump, but the installer did not mark which model/serial number/code was installed. It is a Liberty LE or LEH series pump. I will try to find a receipt in hopes it has more detail, but meanwhile, given that I have three new tenants, one elderly, I do not want to risk the sewage backing up into the apartment. If someone could call me about the next steps to get this done quickly, i would appreciate it.
Project Location: Ithaca, NY

We are looking to have an assessment done to improve our current HVAC system. We have a business that requires proper airflow which is currently not being met by out current system to prevent humid/hot/inconsistent temperatures throughout the unit is leading to odors and other issues. We are not looking to replace our current HVAC unit, but possibly change/update/clean duct systems or install additional/alternative airflow mechanisms.
