Carol D.'s home in Brackenridge, PA was built in the 1950s and through all the years she has been living there, she had struggled with and very uncomfortable second floor. The rooms were freezing cold during the winter and scorching hot during the summer.
Carol started researching solutions online and found Home Environment Solutions. After inspecting the house, our energy conservation technician recommended attic insulation and air sealing -- as well as insulating and sound proofing the knee-wall space.
In this video Carol speaks about the experience with the company and the results.

The upper floor in Johnny D.'s Weirton, WV home was extremely uncomfortable year round. Scorching hot in the summer. freezing cold in the winter.
He had previously upgraded his furnace, thinking that a more energy efficient HVAC system would help make his home more comfortable, but soon found out that was not the case.
That is when he decided to call Home Environment Solutions. Upon inspection, our technician demonstrated that poor attic insulation was the cause of the discomfort. In this video Johnny talks about the experience he had with the company.
"Well for the first time in 10 years the house is one temperature throughout. The furnace hardly ever kicks on anymore. It seems like it runs only when it absolutely needs to. ", he explains.
"Home Environment Solutions fixed the problem that nobody else could figure out for the ten years that I've been living in the home. Basically my energy bills are way lower than I expected them to be after the fact, so I am really pleased." , says Johnny.

Lou B. is an architect in Weirton, WV and while working on a strip mall project, he was looking for a commercial insulation company that could deliver fire resistant insulation. A friend recommended Home Environment Solutions. After the job was performed, the results were so good and Lou's client was so happy that Lou began to think about solving comfort issues in his own office space.
He then contacted us again and had his entire office insulated and air sealed. Once again, Lou was very pleased with the results and plan to call Home Environment Solutions for any of his future projects requiring expert insulation services.

Russel J. and his wife from Toronto, OH purchased a home built in 1884, which as many homes that age, had a humid, moldy and quite smelly crawl space that gave the entire house a foul, musty smell.
When he called Home Environment Solutions for help he was pleased to see that this company has a feasible, effective solution for the problem. The entire crawl space was encapsulated and dehumidified.
Russel is very impressed and very happy with the results:"It changed the value of our home to say that we have a usable, functional basement that doesn't smell", says Russel

I bought my house a few years ago and now come up with the money to insulate my attic. I looked at companies for weeks on the internet. I got it down to 3 companies, the first one i called for a estimate was late for the appointment so he's crossed off the list, which leaves me with two. Booth companies seemed very knowledgable, but Mike at Home Environment Solutions was able to answer my question a lot better and took time to explain it to me so i was sure I understood. I had other companies come in and do different things at my house and it always seemed like i got screwed over, but not with Home Environment Solutions ! I doubt you could go out today and find a sales person who explains what will take place and a work crew that does it exactly like i was told ! The workers at Home Environment Solutions were very reliable, they took their time to do job like it was their own house. They told me step by step what they were going to do next and had me inspect their work prior to going on, incase i had any questions. I just can't speak highly enough about the crew, they were awesome !If you're looking to get insulation in your attic call Home Environment Solutions, they are the BEST !

I just wanted to follow up with the insulation service that you provided at our home in Finleyville. The Master Bedroom and walk in closet of the house we purchased was very cold. We had two heating and AC companies look in the attic and both saw nothing wrong. Your man came down from the attic and informed us that there was no attic insulation in that area. Your service people came out and insulated the area and almost instantly improved the coldness problem. No additional heaters needed like the Heating company suggested. All facets of your service from the initial consultation to the actual service was superb. Thank you very much

Just wanted to let you know that all the insulation work which you did for us definitely helped in the past winter in the upstairs bedrooms. Also, with the summer months arriving, I have noticed that I do not feel the rush of heat at the top of the stairs which we felt prior to insulatiion. I feel that the insulation has again definitely made some difference in the room temperature of the upstairs bedrooms. It is still warm up there, mainly because of how the air conditioning was added to the house after its construction, but it is not the "baking" type of heat that we experienced before insulation.
I haven't gone into the knee wall area yet since the hot weather, but I do think it will be much better there as well.
Wanted to let you know how pleased that I still am with the results of your work in our home. It was all well worth the dollars spent.

We’ve had the pleasure of insulating our home with the products from Home Environment Solutions. Notice we said products-not just one type of product to fix multiple types of insulating needs. The science behind insulating the attic, as recommended by them, really works. Our monthly energy usage has gone down 12% from one year ago after insulating our home. No more pockets of drafty air in certain rooms. No more temperature differences on all floors of the house.
Zach and his team were respectful and competent. They arrived at the time they specified and stayed until the work was completed.
If you’re willing to spend a little more and value quality, call them for an estimate.

Everything went very well. My wife said the crew was very professional and we can already notice the heat difference in our 2nd floor.

On a scale from 1 to 10, everything was a 10 and more! The guys were very good, cleaned up, and very helpful answering my questions through the process. I have already referred my son and two of my neighbors. Everyone that needs help with insulation or crawlspaces will be sent your way. Thank you!

Let me say that I have a new-found respect for manual labor. I am amazed at amount of earth that they removed. The job they did was great. We are very happy with it and have noticed a significant decrease in humidity and earthy smells in the house.

We continue to be amazed how much cooler it is upstairs, and we have yet to set our downstairs thermostat below 70 F to keep our upstairs cool. We are happy with the results of Russell’s recommendations and the work that Cam, Brandon and Zac put into our home.

This note is a week late in coming, but we just wanted to say what a great job Zack, Derrick, and Cam did on our attic insulation work a couple weeks ago. The temperatures were in the upper 90's all week, but they worked hard with no complaints at all. They hit a couple snags along the way with spacing around the steps, but they made the necessary adjustments to make it all work.
People are usually eager to send comments if they're unhappy with a job, but we wanted to be sure to send along our thanks for a job well done by Zack, Derrick & Cam. Thanks, guys -- it was a pleasure to have you in our home!

Best money Ive spent in years! Ive found myself waking up in the middle of the night and actually either switching to shorts from flannel pjs or turning the furnace down usually both! I mean seriously its night and day! My room was always 15 degrees different from the rest of the house and now it’s the same temp!

I wanted to show you my comparison of our bills from the old house to the new since you insulated. The top bill which is $112.52 is our electric for last month in our current house and the bottom bill $209.07 is from the house we have not been living in and the air kept at 75 degrees! Its double the price!! I did a double take when I realized that the smaller house bill is way more than our larger house you insulated!!
