Steve Samaha knew that energy efficiency measures could help reduce air leaking from his 1966 ranch style home, a problem that was costing him money and making his home uncomfortable too. With the help of Energize NY, he researched his options and chose Healthy Home Energy & Consulting to complete a comprehensive energy assessment on his house. The results of the assessment confirmed Steve's belief that much of the wasted energy could be saved through proper insulation and better air sealing. Having completed the work, Steve knows he is no longer losing energy and money through unseen cracks and inadequately insulated walls. The increased comfort and energy savings make for one happy homeowner.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • As soon as the Healthy Home™ workers were finished, I noticed there were no more drafts or 'cold rooms' in the house. Our comfort level immediately increased.

    John K.,
    Fairfield
  • What a difference Healthy Home™ made! They stuck to their estimates, were conscientious in completing the work and cleaned up after themselves every day. I felt comfortable having them in my home, and I have already seen savings in our bills.

    Rita,
    Westchester
  • The workers were definitely a real team. It was nice to see them in uniforms with Healthy Home™ branded equipment. My home didn't feel like a construction site at all.

    Sarah,
    Putnam
  • Fantastic. Jon and his crew were efficient, very clean, very thorough, polite, professional, and very nice...not to mention on schedule. Their solution on how to insulate our roof and garage was also better than the other bids we received. I would recommend them without question.

  • "Once agreed and the appointment was set, Chris and his crew arrived right on time and completed the project exactly in the time frame he advised. I met the crew and they were all extremely nice and the work was exceptional, surpassing my expectations.

    Kevin,

  • Working with Healthy Home™ was a great experience - from the initial emails with Chris to our first meeting with Jon and then the actual work being completed. Everyone was super responsive and reliable. The house feels more comfortable and we had such an enjoyable time getting to this point.

    Joshua,
    Chappaqua, NY
  • We have been very pleased and completely satisfied with Healthy Home™ Energy and Consulting. We wanted more energy efficiency out of our 100 year old house. Healthy Home™ Energy and Consulting first performed a thorough audit finding many areas in our house that could be better insulated.

    Peter,
    Bedford Hills, NY
  • HH performed a comprehensive energy audit and suggested three waves of work. We have completed the first wave - sealing the home from infiltration and insulating a floor that was directly exposed to the cold. Amazing difference in comfort level after the work was complete.

    David,

  • I recommend Healthy Home™ without reservation. They are reliable, thorough, on-time and very knowledgeable. They did a wonderful job with the installation of my ductless heat pump/AC unit.

    Kate S.,

  • Working with Healthy Home™ to purchase my solar PV panels was a terrific experience... They handled all of the permitting, utility and rebate paperwork... We now have a solar system that reduces our electricity costs significantly and looks great.

  • "This is amazing.  It is 55 degrees outside and I have the heat turned OFF - and it is 75 degrees inside the house and it is not getting any cooler inside.  I feel like I may not need the heat this winter with the new insulation.  I... Read More
