Testimonials

Martha R., Greensboro
I would like to compliment Gary Silverstein and his crew for their work on my home.  They were respectful of the interior of the house in that they covered the entrance way and carpeting with work cloths or plastic sheeting, always polite and considerate of any inconvenience they might cause.  Any messes were vacuumed up.  They were very thorough in making sure that all areas of possible air leaks inside and under the house were plugged.  I would recommend their company to anyone looking to upgrade their home for energy conservation.  We actually enjoyed their company on the three days they worked on our house.

Last Spring, after you finished weatherizing our home, we already felt that the house was tighter and more comfortable. Now that we have had some really cold weather we appreciate the job you did even more. You eliminated the chilling drafts we always experienced in fall and winter ever since we bought our home six years ago. Our home is now snug and comfortable. Also, we have begun getting rebates from reduced energy usage. Saving a lot of money and being much more comfortable--you can't beat that! I believe we saved in excess of $600 this year just on Duke Power alone. We recommend Energy Reduction Specialist of NC… (read more)

The assessment in February, 2012, was accomplished seamlessly. When it came time to complete the work, Gary and his men were on time, ready to work, diligent, and tireless in applying their expertise, skill, and capabilities... The men who pumped in the insulation and laid the vapor barrier in the crawl space were in and out and cleaned up after themselves. The configuration concocted to enclose my drafty attic access was accomplished with great precision, down to an eighth of an inch.... They left no stone unturned in completing their to-do list, and threw in a few extra touches because they are professionals and because they cared about the… (read more)

We recently employed Energy Reduction Specialist of North Carolina to assist us in upgrading and weatherizing a secondary home for energy conservation.  This involved many modifications due to the home being 63 years old. The home needed to have a central heating and air unit installed in addition to many other upgrades and modifications. I previously just had a bad experience with another construction co. and had many reservations about starting another construction project.  I was pleasantly surprised. The first meeting with Gary ended with me having a sense of comfort that Gary would do a great job.
Melissa A., Greensboro
Gary and his team were great.  Gary took the time to explain all aspects to us and provided multiple options for improvement.  He did not pressure us on any of the recommendations and, when we decided what to have done, was able to schedule his team quickly.  The team was respectful of our time and space, and clearly took the time to do the work well.  We noticed a difference in the comfort in our home after the first day, and look forward to the long-term payoff we expect to see.  I would recommend Gary and his team to anyone looking to improve the efficiency of their home.

Thank you... Thank you..   Thank you!  The energy upgrade you did on my home has made an immediately noticeable drastic energy savings difference. It is so clearly obvious that the house has become sealed tight, and my energy loss dramatically decreased.  Had it not been for the Better Buildings for Greensboro grant and incentive program making the work financially possible;  and your expertise in the crucial  areas to concentrate on, I would still be hearing the outside world as if it were inside my home, and paying large unnecessary expenses due to large loss of inside air. I also wish to share my gratitude to the fine staff from… (read more)

You rock!  Gary and his crew helped transform our 1910 home to a comfortable more energy efficient one.  Thanks for all the hard work (I loved the vacuuming part of their job!)  
Al C., Greensboro
Energy Reduction Specialists just finished working on our 85 year old home. We can feel the difference already. The crew did a fantastic job. They were always on time, very respectful and efficient. I was surprised and impressed on several occasions. This is going to make a real difference in the efficiency of our home.
Evelyn S., Greensboro
We were very happy with the work by ERS. From the initial evaluation to the completion of the work, Paul Swenson and his crew were a pleasure. We learned a lot about our house in the process, and feel confident that we'll head into this winter with a much more energy-efficient home. I recommend ERS without hesitation.
Sam M., Greensboro
We had Gary's team led by Paul Swenson improve the insulation and reduce the air losses at our 20 year old home.  The team was very professional, did a great job, and left things cleaner than they found them.  My wife wants them to come back again.  The house feels more comfortable, and even during the last major cold spell when the temperature fell to below 10 degrees, the house felt comfortable and the heating had no problem keeping up.  Even the bonus room, which is known as a cold spot in most homes, is pleasant to use as my office.  I can't confirm energy savings yet, as it… (read more)
