It’s hard to be comfortable in a cold, drafty home (or a hot, sticky one, for that matter). Hiring an insulation company can save you the trauma of having to live in an uncomfortable home, but choosing one can be a tough nut to crack. Keeping that in mind, if you’re looking for a home insulation contractor, then there are several factors to consider. Here’s how to choose an insulation contractor:
Read Online Reviews
Back in the day, simple word of mouth from friends or family would suffice. Today, however, folks are most likely to trust the reviews left by strangers online. When it comes to gauging the legitimacy of an insulation contactor through online reviews, volume matters. More positive reviews means happy customers. On the other hand, more negative reviews is the first of many red flags to look out for when you choose an insulation contractor.
Speaking of positive reviews, Green Stone Energy has more 5 star Google reviews than any other insulation contractor in the area. We’re proud of our reviews, and if you want to know what our customers are saying about us, follow this link [Insert link here]
Endorsed By Your Local Energy Company
Green Stone Energy is a PECO participating contractor. So, why does that matter?
It does when hiring an insulation contractor mainly because for every $1 decrease in annual energy costs, you increase the market value of your home by $20. Additionally, homeowners get to save up to 20% on energy costs for years to come. In short, PECO participating contractors offer peace of mind and awesome rebates that you’re simply not going to find anyplace else.
Follows Industry Standards
Before you choose an insulation contractor, it’s wise to make sure that the contractor has their finger on the pulse when it comes to industry best practices and the latest technologies.
When you call to schedule an appointment for a home estimate, are the company representatives friendly?
Did the estimator arrive as promised (or call ahead if they are running late?)
Did they explain the process clearly?
Were you satisfied with the amount of time it took to receive their proposal?
These are just some of the questions that you need to ask to find out if the company you’re hiring can deliver on its promise. If they were thorough and responsive during the initial process, there’s a good chance you’ll be pleased with the end result. If, on the other hand, the experience was difficult, you should consider choosing another insulation contractor to help you with your project.
