I had the pleasure of having Alligood Energy perform some work on my house. I quickly learned how expensive heating a house is, especially when I could feel cold drafts throughout the house with the heat on. I came across them while researching energy audits for the first house I bought earlier this year. They were offering a special where for $99 they would do a full energy audit. I scheduled an audit at night for the next day and within a half hour had a personal email from Matt Alligood confirming the appointment and giving me a brief rundown of what he would be doing the next. He arrived right on time the next day and was loaded with tons of diagnostic equipment that would pinpoint the weak areas in my houses air envelope. Matt is an incredibly friendly guy and explained each piece of equipment he was using and how they use it to determine where the weak points where in the house. The audit was very thorough. Before any of the equipment was set up, Matt and I went around the house and he looked at typical weak areas where air leaks, he then also had me note any areas I found to be a problem. After that he set up the blower door test and began going around the house with the thermal camera which showed the degree of air infiltration. After going through the house, Matt prepared a list of suggestions and recommendations and went through them one by one. I never got the impression that he was trying to upsell or push me into expensive fixes that would never pay for themselves, he instead focused on reasonably priced fixes that would make a big difference in energy costs and comfort in the house. While he wasn’t pushing for upgrading the HVAC or windows at this time, he did mention when it comes time to replace them anyway, upgrading them at that time would improve the results. All in all, Matt spent over 3 hours during the audit, all for the special rate of $99, an absolute bargain. That night I received a detailed audit report which included recommendations for spray foaming the craw space and band joists, air sealing the attic, adding more insulation to the attic, and spray foaming a particularly weak area under my laundry chute. The price seemed very reasonable for the amount of work and labor involved. I set up the appointment for a few weeks later to have the recommendations installed. The crew arrived on time and they got right to work. Plastic was rolled out to anywhere they would be walking to make sure the house would be nice and clean when they left. The total install time was about six hours. All the guys were working non-stop and were incredibly professional. After everything was done, Matt walked around and showed me the improvements that were made and reran the diagnostic tests. The tests showed a dramatic reduction in air leakage. I also got a close out report showing the before and after pictures, as well as the test results, something that will be good to have if I end up selling my home and want to point out the upgrades. The payment process is painless, I chose one of their payment plans and everything is automatically done through Paypal. It’s been just shy of a year since I’ve had the upgrades performed. In the summer, I got away with hardly using the Air conditioning. At night, I could open all the windows and cool down the house, then during the day with all the air sealing and insulation the house remained cool until night time rolled around again. Only during prolonged periods of heat or when guests came over would I need to use the Air conditioner. We also just finished our first winter with the improvements. Last winter, we went through over 800 gallons of heating oil, this season, we’ve been below 500 gallons of heating oil. The house also feels much more comfortable. Overall, I would have to say the investment I made with Alligood Energy was a great one. The improvements are already saving energy and making my house more comfortable. I also was very pleased with the customer service that I received, and would recommend them to anybody.
Working with Alligood Energy has been an absolute pleasure! I have been looking to get some energy work done to my home for quite some time given how high my energy bills and how uncomfortable some of the bedrooms are in the summer. I was not sure who to call but then I was referred by a friend who also had Jeff and Matt Alligood do an energy audit on their home and they loved it! Brothers, Jeff and Matt were very professional and courteous all the way through the audit – I was very impressed. As they set up the equipment, they helped explained to me exactly what was happening so I could try to follow along with what they were doing. They tested out my home with the use of a infrared camera which was very eye opening in finding out some of the problems behind the walls and hidden spaces. After they ran all the tests, they then produced a full blown report with pictures and pricing for me with a return on investment report that they presented to me. They were done in under 3 hours and it only cost me $99. I will definitely be recommending them to my close friends!
This summer when we had our air conditioner serviced, the serviceman noted what little insulation we had in our attic where the air conditioner sits. He suggested we have an energy audit done on our home, which was performed by Alligood Energy for only $99. Jeff spent three hours with us, first performing comprehensive tests and evaluations, then sitting down with us and providing a detailed explanation of his findings along with several optional solutions. We found him to be very knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous, and we never felt pressured into anything. Over the course of the next week, he freely gave his time to answer further questions for us. Once we made our decision, brothers Jeff and Matt and their team came to our home to redo all of the insulation in the attic. They worked efficiently, were respectful of our property, and did a fantastic job, going beyond what we had expected. We are very satisfied with their work and highly recommend them.
We were very happy with both the initial energy audit and the subsequent work we had done. We met Jeff and Matt at the Home Show, and we booked a home energy audit while at the show. They followed up on the appointment date, and Jeff came when scheduled. Jeff did an extensive audit, and showed us where we were loosing energy. We decided to follow his recommendations. On the schedule work day, Jeff and his crew showed up as scheduled, protected their work area, and quickly went to work. They were all very professional. The work took about 5 hours, and when they were done, Jeff showed us and explained what had been done. The difference is incredible. We reduced the lose of energy by 26.5%. We are very satisfied with the work they did, and would gladly recommend them to anyone considering reducing the lose of energy in their home by having an energy audit.
Matt Alligood did a phenomenal job at not only assessing the air leaks in our home with thermal imaging equipment, but also documenting it with photos and thorough descriptions and taking the time to sit down and explain it to my husband. We normally get multiple quotes from contractors for work to be performed in our home, but we were so impressed with Alligood Energy that that was not necessary in this instance. Less than 2 weeks after our initial energy evaluation, Matt and his crew showed up at the promised day and time to carry out the work. They were thorough, cleaned up debris from the insulation and took "after" photos to enable us to compare what our attic looked like prior to the insulation and afterward. We would recommend them to anyone and everyone looking to create more efficiency in their home energy use.
I had a very positive experience working with Jeff, Matt, and Alligood Energy. We have a 90+ year old home in Ardmore and we had Jeff and Matt come out to do an energy audit to find ways to make our home more energy efficient. The process they used seemed very thorough and they took the time to explain the different aspects of the audit along the way. The audit identified several ways in which our home could be better insulated and we had them come back a week later to address the issues in our attic and basement. The team who performed the work also did a good job explaining and documenting what they were doing and took the time to put down plastic on our hardwood floors to minimize any residual messes, which was greatly appreciated. I have no hesitation recommending Alligood.
After doing a thorough assessment of our 120 year old house, Matt sent us an estimate for addressing the problems . We chose ro address one of the two options provided. Matt and his crew arrived promptly and completed the insulation of our house within a day, working until early evening. They were polite, hardworking ,answered all of our questions and cleaned up thoroughly. We would use their services again. Although not enough time has passed for us to see the results of their work( electric bill reduction, less use of oil etc. we expect positive results. They insulated and sealed the air leak areas in the basement and third floor, including crawl spaces, and neatly finished the areas where they blew insulation.
Great experience with Matt Alligood! You can trust Alligood to critically analyze your home and offer you menu-style solutions to various issues. Best parts - you can trust them; they are professional, reliable, respectful and nice to deal with. I also called Horizon, and their guy was some standard reply person who had 10% of the insulation knowledge of Alligood. You cannot go wrong with Alligood; they are a refreshingly enjoyable smaller, family-owned company looking to make you more comfortable in your home. Call these guys, you will not regret it!
Jeff did an excellent job helping us take care of some low hanging fruit with regard to our insulation. He was very responsive to initial questions by email and helped walk my wife and I through the scope of work. Work was completed as fast as they said it would take, and Jeff and his crew were professional and courteous. He performed a fan test immediately after the work and we saw an 18% improvement which we expect will pay for itself in less than two years. There was no pressure to try to tackle parts with a low ROI, which I greatly appreciated.
Had a great experience with Alligood Energy - they were friendly, flexible, and prompt and gave me good explanations of the house assessment and also the work they did, and they retested air flow again after insulating to show exactly what the insulation had accomplished. Last year my pipes froze any time the temp went below 15ish and now the basement feels almost as warm as the rest of the house. I’d recommend them to anyone who has questions about air flow or energy efficiency of their home.
We had a terrific experience with this company. They first came to our house to do an energy audit and then spent a lot of time with us answering questions and giving us options. They helped us convert our house to gas, replace our boiler, and insulate our attic. The whole process was painless thanks to them. The monthly cost for all of the work they did is less than how much we used to spend per month on oil alone. I would highly recommend them.
We had a great experience with Alligood energy! They were very accomodating to our schedules and came out quickly to do the initial energy audit. We appreciated their recommendations and are looking forward to the benefit of the improvements we made for years to come. I highly recommend this company.
We had a great experience with Alligood Energy. They were professional, informative and also offered cost effective solutions to make our home more comfortable and efficient. We could tell a difference in the comfort of our home immediately and feel the service was well worth the cost.
