A review for Button's Heating Inc.
After reading many of the reviews on HomeStars, I was convinced to call Button’s Heating and Air-conditioning to install a gas hot water (my electric tank started leaking). Left a message on Wednesday night and they returned my call the next morning. Being an easier conversion (exterior wall is just behind the tank), Joe Button (Dad) gave me the estimate over the phone, including some recommendations (50 gallon tank). Once arrived Todd B. and John B. laid down the front runners (blankets) to protect the floor and started working immediately. They answered my questions and also asked me If I had any preferences ( I wanted the gas pipe routed between the joist for more head room). They are easily approachable and just all around professionals. They use top notch material like ball valves for the water lines and steel (flex) tubing to connect the gas. Nothing sub-standard there. An error code showed up while the tank was heating up. The diagnostics was that there was too much condensation, since the tank was filled with cold (winter) water. Both Todd and John said we stayed and extra 40 minutes to verify it wasn’t anything else. Once the tank heated up more, the error code went away. Like other have said, the price is fair (not cheap or expensive), but the piece of mind is well worth it. The price in the estimate was also the final price (which you don’t get very often with contractors).0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Zenic Insulation
Zenic insulation came on September 2011. They prefer to pass the injection hose through the window(s) to get to the attic hatch, rather than through entry of front or side doors. Upon inspection, no addition vent baffles were needed. Estimate was very simple, so much a square foot (< $1.00 for me), for the thickness you need. Just measure how much insulation you have now (i.e. 4", 6", 8", ...) and they will tell you the price per square foot over the phone to get to the level you want (R50). They laid down the front runners (blankets) to protect the floor, plastic sheet around the attic hatch, and added enough dry cellulose (loose fill) insulation to get the R-50 (total was 22 inches in my case, which allow 2” for settling) to my attic. Once done they added a gasket along the perimeter of the attic hatch and also insulation (in a bag). They did a quick cleanup afterwards.
Thank you Zdenek
