Additional Notes

Complaint: We contracted This Efficient House to do a home energy audit, including a blower door test. We were most interested in the blower door test as the results would reveal where most of our heat was escaping. All we got for our money were estimates on a new heat system, insulation, etc. Despite many pleas, we never received the results of our blower door test. The blower door test was performed in May 2015.

Desired Settlement: I would either like a refund, or the results of the blower door test, even if he has to come back and do it again.

Business Response:


First I would like to apologize for the slow response to this customer’s concerns.  They have been very patient and reasonable from beginning to end

We were initially hired to perform a home energy audit and provide estimates for a furnace and insulation, both in the crawlspace.  At that time we found water leaking into the crawlspace.  We let the customer know we couldn’t do any work until the leak was fixed.  The customer said they would attempt to find the source of the leak and have it corrected. 

We followed up a few times over the next few months but the leak hadn’t been fixed.  In that time, the staff member who performed the energy audit left the company.  Subsequently, I wasn’t able to find the notes or files on the computer because they were mistakenly saved in another customer’s folder on the computer.  I have since tracked down the files and sent them to the customer.   I regret that it took us this long to resolve the issue.   

Thank You,

Mike T*****, BS, BPI, NATE
