Reviews of Pittsburgh Blown-In Insulation Services
Project - Air Sealing, Insulation, Duct Sealing, Blown Insulation, Foam Board Insulation. Project outcome: This is quoted from Brian Keech, another Energy Auditor professional with Tom, "the final % reduction in air leakage was 48% (Blower Door Test Before Improvements â 3,741 cfm, After â 1,933 cfm)" Also, our first winter month bill seemed to be cut in half. We will have to see what comes of the following months. Our upstairs was so cold in the winter, I had to bundle up to go up there. So, we almost never used it. Now, it's the warmest place in the house. Customer Service - Tom is a very passionate, hard working, friendly individual. He seemed to always have our best interests in mind, and was very accommodating to our requests (we had a few). He sat down with us before and after and explained everything thoroughly. The gentlemen that worked with, or by themselves sometimes, were to themselves (which is fine). However, they did leave the gate open multiple times, so the dog escaped once or twice and a couple attempts. Quality - The quality of the project in the end was very good. We had a second 3rd party energy auditor come in and gave the project a good review, except a couple things. He wanted the weather stripping on the knee-wall doors improved, and better sealing/insulation around the addict access panel. Tom seen that these were improved. Also, when the project was finished, Tom saw that the carpets were cleaned with a carpet cleaner, the walls wiped down and any other mess that was made. The blown insulation did make quite a mess which, as mentioned, was cleaned up. However, we did have a fine layer of insulation on some furniture that I didn't notice until I started itching. No problem though, just a quick wipe down was sufficient. There were a couple things that I had thought could have been done better. I mentioned them to Tom, and he agreed and fixed them himself. What I mentioned was the duct work still had some air leaks that were visible, some walls that had insulation installed were poorly cut and not sealed. Again, these were all fixed and I doubt that Tom would have allowed these to be the final product, even if I hadn't mentioned it. Cost - The project seemed to be a fair price. We were getting help in the form of a home energy relief from the government (i think it was). We wanted to maximize the amount we got, and Tom helped us reach this goal. He did go a little more above than we anticipated, but worked with us on removing/changing some aspects of the project that we didn't think were pertinent. Details - Overall: They did a blower test a few times, before and a couple after. They also installed a chimney balloon (which is what prompted a second blower door test after). Addict - Knee-walls fitted with foam board insulation, sealed with expanding foam. Floors, Peaks, Addict crawlspace were seal with expanding foam where possible and blown with insulation. Installed circular tubing in between each joist on the peak that ran from the knee-walls to the addict for air flow. Weatherstripped and insulated the knee-wall doors. Since they had to cut in the addict, as there was no previous way to get up, they cut out a access hole which they installed a custom access panel when finished. This was weatherstripped and insulated. Basement - Walls had insulation hung the top 4 feet, and sealed with expanding foam. In between the joists, where they met the wall, were insulated and foamed. The return air ducts (sheet metal cover a run of the joists) were sealed on the bottom of the floor boards. The supply ducts and fully enclosed return ducts were sealed with mastic. The two coal cellar doors were weather stripped. They ran a duct work leak test before and after installation. Pictures - I took pictures of the before, during and after. However, I lost the SD Card. If I ever find it, I will post pictures.
Everything was done as described for the price agreed upon. Very satisfied.
They were very professional and cleaned up after the job. They were very honest and trustworthy as well. Definitely pleased with their work and integrity.
