              I loved the sales presentation as it explained the benefits Comfenergy could offer. The installation crew was great!! I love my attic cover that keeps the warm air from leaving and going into the attic and it has made such a difference. I was kept informed by email and I even had to change one of the days and it was easily worked out for me. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with the work and the courtesy from the crew and office staff.

    Scott M. of Aldie, VA

    Customer Testimonial

              Thank you for the outstanding job done by the Comfenergy team on insulating my basement on November 14, 2016. My sales rep, Shayne Sandner, was friendly and very professional. He answered all of my questions and inspired great confidence. His emphasis on quality and standing behind your work helped me to select Comfenergy as my spray foam vendor. His pricing was very close to the quote I received from one of your competitors. Communications from Comfenergy were clear and kept me informed of the planning and scheduling process. Your team did the work while I was away on vacation, with my father letting them into the house and checking in after the job was done. When I returned home, I found that you were generous with your insulation - you fulfilled (actually exceeded, for the most part) your 2" insulation thickness commitment throughout the basement. I was also happy to find that there was zero residual odor (your team installed on a Monday and I returned home the following Sunday). Your team paid attention to the details, such as installing rigid insulation around window and door rough-ins to ensure uninterrupted insulation and to prevent any foam from interfering with my future trim installation. The Comfenergy team did a fantastic job of cleaning up. Not a spec of foam on the floors or anywhere else that it wasn't supposed to be. Even more evidence of your customer focus is that your team did not push me at all to pay for the work prior to my return home from vacation, so I could inspect the job. Nicely done Comfenergy! Thanks for your exceptional performance and customer support.

    Ellen Z. of Hamilton, VA

    Customer Testimonial

              I asked Comfenergy to evaluate two problems I was having. First, I noticed rust stains on my ceiling ducts as well as bits of insulation coming out of them. Second, the master bedroom was noticeably hotter in the summer and colder in the winter than the other bedrooms. While Justin was there, I asked him to evaluate the entire house to see if I had other issues that affected its energy efficiency. Justin did a very thorough evaluation. He demonstrated and explained everything to me in a straightforward and easy-to-understand manner. What I appreciated the most though was his honesty. He told me that the issues with the ducts needed to be fixed but found that everything else was in good working order. I didn’t feel like he was trying to sell me something that I didn’t need but gave me an honest evaluation of my home’s energy efficiency and provided a solution that worked to address the one issue I had.

    Duct Sweating-Linden, VA

    This Linden, VA homeowner had mold growing on the drywall in the garage ceiling that was causd by the HVAC duct work above the drywall sweating in the summer time.  This duct sweating is caused by hot/humid air hitting the cold metal ducting.  This makes the air hit dew point and sweat.  Then, it dripped on their drywall and over time caused mold to grow.

    Comfenergy removed and disposed of the dryall where the mold was growing.  Then, we completely encased the metal ducting with closed cell spray foam to air seal it and protect it from the hot/humid air entering the cavity the duct runs through.
