Customer Testimonials:

"The money I spent with Ecobeco for their comprehensive energy audit was the best investment I've ever made in my home. Period! I know if I follow the recommendations, I'll have a more comfortable home and ultimately spend less on utilities!"

Bill S., Fulton, MD

"My energy costs are down 25% my family and we are enjoying a cozier house, and I credit the great team at ECOBECO for these results. In two homes, I have had several energy audits, and nothing came close to the professionalism, accuracy, and specificity of ECOBECO's audit which was conducted by Jonathan Ferree. They led us through the who process, and with their help, I was able to get a contractor who did a fantastic insulation job, and the post-inspection was reassuring to me. In the next month, I should have some solar panels on my roof, I have LED and CFL in my home, and I have a wrapped water tank, and I thank ECOBECO for setting me off on this path."

Stefan L., Bethesda, MD

""ecobeco has been very responsive and easy to work with. Jonathan was awesome, very knowledgeable, very willing to talk to us about what he was doing. He was a wealth of information and took the time to explain everything to us."

Faith L., Silver Spring, MD

"I did most of the major improvements Curt recommended and I can honestly say the improvements are NOTICED! I am saving money on electricity to the tune of 20-30% a month (for warm months). And the house is noticeably a more consistent temperature."

Carl H., Reston, VA

"I wanted to let you know how happy I was with Curt Christenson's professionalism, and his explanation of what he going to do, and the process. I was especially pleased with the walk-through we did (both initially and at the end) Thanks to Curt I now have a much better understanding of the energy issues. Unlike many "contractors" he was not at all patronizing-at no time did I feel "clueless" - although sometimes I was!! Anyway, Curt is to be commended -many kudos."

Yvonne H., Columbia, MD

"I was extraordinarily pleased with the company's work. Mike Ingram spent hours at our home, he sealed our home and then ran a test with an infrared detector to find leaks in the roof, in the basement, doors, windows, even the crawl space. I was given a detailed report on how to make our energy usage more efficient. I've already implemented some of the easy recommendations, and hope to follow through on the others sometime this spring/summer. The best part was that the company said we didn't need to replace the windows, but could seal the storm windows better. For example, by plugging the holes where the pulleys are with cotton-wool, also using foam insulation to seal small gaps between the floor and elsewhere. Simple, easy to follow recommendations can apparently save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in energy use each year."

Vineeta A., Alexandria, VA

"I really feel like we got our money's-worth out of the ecoAssessment and Whole Home Energy Audit! Our 50 year old home really didn't feel well insulated even after we added insulation to the attic and crawl space. With rising fuel prices and concerns about the environment, I did research on potential issues, as well as tools that professionals use. I spoke to a number of companies that offered energy audit services, and Ecobeco was the only one I found that offered a comprehensive set of tests at a reasonable price. The energy audit report was the best part of it all. It was very comprehensive, including detailed descriptions, photos and thermal images of problem areas, as well as prioritized recommendations that included cost (and savings) estimates, and even references to contractors that could assist where repairs were needed. This company is definitely a class act and I would highly recommend them to anyone with similar concerns."

Rob R., Rockville, MD

"Reuven is so dedicated and passionate about this work, and so personable, which made his work great for us. His report, and a follow up call or two with him, was also very clear in the priority and order of what work should be done. Also, I learned a lot about where we were wasting electricity and have taken steps to remove chargers, etc. that didn't require any investment."

Elissa L., Silver Spring, MD

"I have been very pleased with my auditor, Reuven Walder of ecobeco. I know my house pretty well after almost 25 years of working on it, but the audit and ongoing communications with the audit helped identify priorities and best approaches to resolving some complicated issues."

Peter G, Bethesda, MD

"I had a home energy audit... They conducted the work with great thoroughness and a high level of professionalism. They are an excellent choice for anyone who is serious about home energy savings."

Chuck R., Silver Spring, MD

"I just wanted to let you know that I was very pleased with the audit that ecobeco did today. My energy auditor was great - helpful, knowledgeable and patient with my incessant questions. I would have no problem serving as a reference for your company if you have any customers that would like to contact me. "

Skip W., Bethesda, MD

"I was very pleased with the audit. The use of the IR scanner detected a significant window air leak that I was unaware of and can fix. Their top to bottom inspection of the house revealed issues related to its construction that I would have never been aware of."

Harvey E., Bethesda, MD
