The people who came to test our house were professional, polite and most importantly kept me informed about what they were doing, as well as gave suggestions on how to improve home efficiency. Overall the experience was good.
I hired Barrier Sciences Group for my energy audit in order to qualify for Union Gas rebate program.
The auditor was easy to reach on the phone. He came to my house on time. He was very quick and thorough with his work. He was very kind and happily explained the rebate process to me and went into detail explaining what he is doing and later gave me his recommendations as to what I can do to save money on energy cost. I went ahead and did most of the recommendations he made and I do not regret it. My hosue is much more energy efficient now I am totally suprised.
The gentleman that did our audit for the energy rebate was polite and honest. He told us what was needed to receive maximum rebate. Once completed on our end he returned for the assessment the day after we called. This was amazing prompt service. A receipt was provided with a detailed summary of what we will receive. Friendly honest star five service, thank you!
I hired BSG to do a home energy audit. They were available to come within a day or two. The assessor had good advice, and after the follow up audit was completed we got as much back in government rebates as we had hoped for. They were also prompt in answering all of my emailed questions before, between and after the audit.
The process was lengthy, in terms of assessments and getting things started, but once things were in place, the actual work done and installers were great. Came in with 3 installers, with the basement work (insulation installed with vapour barrier on exterior walls) done first. Once completed, the attic was then done. The installers were personable and friendly, and did a good job keeping things as clean as possible, as I had just installed new flooring in the basement and kitchen areas.
I took on a major renovation to rent out a century home that I recently bought. I wanted to take advantage of the rebates I could get from union gas, so i found Barrier Sciences Group and they were very prompt and accommodating in their service. Tyler was a pleasure to work with and maximized my rebate. I would recommend him to anyone!
I found out shortly after purchasing my home that there was no insulation or very little throughout the house which caused for a very cold winter. After researching this program I was able to get a lot more work done on the house and hopefully this winter will be a little more comfortable. The Rep came in and gave me a very detailed list of what can be done to get the most bang for my buck. Once I had a list of what should be done and what the rebate program would cover I was in a much better position to decide what projects to start with. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking at saving heating costs.
