Complaint: Efficient Energy Solutions has been to my house 6 + visits (H/AC) - job is not complete! Poor, incomplete, sloppy workmanship in many areas of this job. A heating air conditioner was installed with many incomplete procedures. (Example - Air conditioning/heating ducts in garage have been wrapped on 3 different dates - All 3 have come apart - due to wrong materials, no straps and not sealed, etc.) The last final inspection FAILED and inspector wrote 10 + items not completed, not done properly no smoke alarms, no co alarm etc, etc, etc I received ?? A letter from this company indicating HVAC corrections were done - they have not been to my house since it failed county inspection. How could the work be completed?
Desired Settlement: I do not want any dealings with this poor company. I want my $1,000 deposit returned and H/AC unit returned to them.
All of the customers complaints are unfounded. Homeowner purchased a Heating and Air system along with Blown in Attic Insulation on 2-19-2014. We installed a new roof package unit on her roof (furnace and air conditioning) on 4-24-14. The Sacramento City Building permit was issued 2-26-2014. Pursuant to State Building Code after the installation a third party (independent) duct test must be done. Her duct test failed. At that point the homeowner became very upset. I explain to her that we sealed the ducts the best we could before the duct test was administered. I informed her at that time that new ducts would run approximately $200.00 per duct run. She continued to be upset so I told the homeowner we would install all new ducts for free. The home owner agreed.
The hurdle was she was getting her floors done and would not let us come back and re do the duct work or install the blown in attic installation. We called many times to finish the job. Homeowner was either having other work (painting) on the house being done or busy at work and did not have time for us to finish the work. Finally in early August Homeowner allowed us to install new ducts and do the Attic Insulation. Once the new ducts were installed we called for a re test for the ducts. This time the duct test passed. At that point we called for a final inspection from the building department.
The inspector wrote up 10 items that needed to be done. Items 1 & 2 referred to smoke alarms in the bedrooms and hallway. Smoke alarms are the homeowners responsibility but, I was willing to install them for the homeowner at no charge but, I could not get to the house in time to install them before the inspection. We have them and homeowner needs 4 total. They take 10 minutes each to install. Items 3 thru 6 have to do with small items at the unit on the roof. We did those corrections the next day. Item 7 provide insulation certificate. The certificate was not present at inspection and we have it now ready for the inspector.
Item 8 install breaker label. We have it and ready to install it. It will take 5 minutes or less to label. Item 9 & 10 has to do with a insulation wrap on a existing metal duct in the garage that we did as a accommodation to the homeowner. It had nothing to do with our installation. The tape came loose and we need to re tape it. Inspector ask us to seal the seal at the wall also. This work will take no more than 30 minutes to do. We are willing and able to complete the work at any time. The permit will expire on 2-25-2015. We have all the items for the correction notice ready to finish. The Homeowner has promise many times to let us finish but, each time something new comes up. We have all the records phone messages, reports, permits and certificates for anyone to review or inspect at anytime.
Final Inspection Work - Your letter dated 1-21-15 stated the HVAC corrections have been made. You have not come to my house to do any work since this inspection was made. How can all of this work completed in 1 hour?
Based on final inspection the following items need to be completed
1- Install smoke alarms in hall and all bedrooms
2 - Install co alarm in hall
3 - Block and strap condensate drain 48"
4 - Re-configure gas line drip leg - gas and change floor direction of top of drip leg, put flow across it
5 - Protect exposed stat wire on roof
6 - Seal gas line penetration through roof jack
7 - Provide insulation certificate
8 - Label A.C. breaker in main panel and install handle tie on breaker if needed
9 - Securely wrap insulation on all garage duct work
10 - Seal fire wall penetration at duct
I have enclosed a picture of current ducts in garage again failing apart after 3 wraps done by your company. Also a picture of unit on my roof showing I have been told the
2) dents are touching the coils/condenser panel. This new product should not have dents!!
3) Corrosion on line - should have been painted - especially since worked asked me to buy paint at Home Depot on day of installation.
At this point, I no longer have confidence in the company to complete the work and do not want the company back out here to do the work. I have found another company that I am going with and will want to be reimbursed for the work that was failed to be completed.
Secondly, I am requesting to have the Insulation Certification faxed to be today at # ###-###-####.
I CANNOT FIX ANYTHING IF THE HOME OWNER WILL NOT LET US COME BACK. THE DUCT IN THE GARAGE WAS JUST A WRAP THAT WE DID AS A ACCOMMODATION . THE TAPE FAILED AND WE ARE

Complaint: Was told by **** ********* that I had to decide today to the get the money from some unnamed source due to being low income. Pressures you for an immediate decision: A reputable professional ****** recognize that you need time to consider many factors when deciding which contractor to hire. You ****** want to check references; look into the contractor's standard of work and his professional designations and affiliations; verify his insurance; check to see if he needs a license (and if so, that it is valid); get written estimates from several firms based on identical project specifications, and, contact the Better Business Bureau and local consumer protection agency to see if they have information.
Desired Settlement: Change your sales practices. I was given no written quote.
