Description Of Work: Insulation in attic and walls, sealed attic, installed a tankless water heater
Member Comments: This is the second house HealthyHomes4U, Inc has done for us. First, they did our home which had energy bills of over $600 a month, and now they are about $130 a month. They injected the walls with foam insulation and put r-49 insulation in the attic, replaced the furnace and ac unit. Sealed the attic walls and windows and replaced our water heater with a tankless water heater Plus they got us over $12,000 in rebates from the utility companies.
I told our tenants about it and they wanted to have their house done too. They also had a room that was always too hot or cold. They insulated the walls with foam and ceiling with cellulose replaced all the asbestos ducts, provided an abatement certification.  Replaced the hot water heater and replaced the ducts. They [our tenants] are very happy too. Now both of us have more comfortable and affordable homes. We also no longer fear the utility bills.
Yes we would recommend HealthyHomes4U Inc to everyone. Everything went great, and they handled everything.

Description Of Work: Replaced windows, insulation in attic and walls, installed a tank less water heater, weather stripping on doors and seal the ducts
Member Comments: Our house was built in 1956 and very drafty! We had high utility bills and it was always cold in my home. We hired them to replace the windows, insulate the attic and walls. They put in a tank less water heater and sealed the air ducts. They put weather stripping around all the doors. I was worried about the mess that the work would create. I have 4 children and we all know how that go’s. They were so clean and professional, I could not believe it. They did a top notch job. My house feels so nice and warm now. It feels like a home!! We all love the endless hot showers too!!! Having that many children we always ran out of hot water. Jim Nugent (the owner) even helped us get a rebate from our utility company’s a total of $8,000. My utility bills are so much lower (about 40%). They went out of their way to make us happy! I highly recommend them.

Home Build Year: 1975
Description Of Work: Energy Upgrade Consultation
Member Comments: Jim came out to give me an estimate on making my home more energy efficient. He looked around and made suggestions on how to lower our utility bills. I decided that a full upgrade was outside of my budget at the moment, but when I do decide to upgrade my home I will use HealthHomes4U because they are professional, on-time, trust-worthy and very informative. I was thankful for the time Jim spent with me going over cost vs benefits of individual items as well as cost and savings of the overall upgrade. I also really liked that they have non-caustic wall insulation foam that won’t put toxic chemicals into the house and do more harm than good. And the Aeroseal product that allows for duct insulation/sealing from the inside of the system, instead of tearing through my walls and attic looking for leaks. The less tearing apart of the house the sooner life can get back to normal after renovations.
I also appreciated that even though they are window distributors they did not try to push the windows, they explained that there is a huge mark up in window units and that the companies make big money on the sales and that it’s actually not that helpful to the overall energy saving of the house. That if you are on a budget trying to get the most bang for your buck, you should go for insulating the walls, attics and ducts as that is where the most energy can be kept from leaving the house and save the most money. They took a look at my water heater and AC unit and told me both systems are larger than what I actually need for the square footage of my home and that I could save money on monthly utilities with smaller units, but it would not be worth the replacement cost as they are still in good condition (So in the future, when they eventually break, I won’t be sold more than what I need for the size of my home because someone is trying to make a bigger sale- Knowledge is power).  Like I said, I decided that now is not the best time financial for me to invest in home improvement, Jim was really nice about it and did not charge me for the consultation. When I do have the budget for upgrades I will use this company, but until then I recommend them to those looking for immediate improvements.
I always appreciate a straight shooting contractor and as they are a rare find- I thought I would share my learning experience with the community. I hope your experience is as positive as mine.
