rating  Attic insulation, by Brian

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 12/2016

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Highly recomended I put a long review on Angies list if you want to see all the details. If your insulation is substandard or you are in an older house this is a most worthwhile service that not only pays financial dividends but can make a huge difference in the comfort of your home. And this team is highly competent, easy to work with and demostrated the utmost integrity.


rating  Insulation work, by Marina

Services provided: insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 10/2016

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: I was very happy with the work of Live Green LLC. It was a painless and pleasant process from start to finish. From setting up the appointment, conducting the audit, and implementing the recommendations. Michael Whelan was knowledgeable and efficient. He was extremely patient in answering all my questions. I was very happy with the way the work turned out, and the price was fair. I would recommend Live Green to anyone with out hesitation.


rating  I strongly endorse LiveGreen. Excellent work., by Carter

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 10/2016

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: We retained LiveGreen both for an energy audit and follow-up work to solve some problems that the audit revealed. The quality of the work was excellent, and the service even better. They did the work, and handled all the paperwork for the rebate/tax credits. A small issue was resolved quickly. Among the best experiences I've ever had with a contractor.


rating  Home Energy Improvements, by Emilie

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 7/2014

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: I can't say enough good things about Michael Whelan and his team at Live Green. We hired them to do energy improvements on our home, including sealing in our basement, insulation installation in our attic and weatherproofing of doors and they did that and more. They completed the job on time and on budget, and they were a pleasure to be around. And when they discovered a GIANT bee's nest in the crawl space above my 18-mo-old daughter's room upon opening the ceiling to spray the insulation, they consulted me on the issue and, before I could even contact an exterminator, had removed the nest and all of the remaining bees. To say they went above and beyond is an understatement. Finally, their work secured us with a 30% improvement on our energy leakage, which meant that we were eligible for a 50% rebate from Pepco. I'm a happy customer!


rating  Full energy audit of our home followed by installation of insulation, by Genny

Services provided: insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 7/2014

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Suzanne and Michael were absolutely wonderful to work with. They were extremely responsive to all of our needs, punctual for every appointment, and did a terrific job with the insulation, as well as the initial energy audit. The work was done quickly yet thoroughly. The follow-up assistance was also first rate. Suzanne filed all the necessary paperwork with Pepco in order to ensure we got the maximum energy saver rebates, and she took the time to walk us through the process of claiming energy saver tax credit through the State of Maryland. Overall, they were a top notch company to work with and I have no reservations at all recommending them to family and friends.


rating  Highly Recommend Live Green LLC , by Tom

Services provided: air sealing, insulation | Services completed: 2/2014

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: We highly recommend Live Green. Live Green was by far the most responsive of all the companies we contacted for estimates on insulation and air sealing work. In addition, Michael took the time to explain the work to be done and answer all of our questions. As first-time homeowners, Live Green’s attention to our needs and questions was very comforting. It made Live Green an easy choice to perform the work. On the day the work was performed, Live Green was on time, performed all the necessary work quickly and efficiently, conducted all necessary cleanup, and was overall extremely professional. After the work was complete, Live Green promptly prepared the paperwork to receive incentives under Pepco’s Home Performance with Energy Star Program. In preparing that paperwork, Live Green realized that we had been charged for vent baffles that were not needed and refunded us the money. We never would have known the vent baffles weren’t installed and truly appreciate Live Green’s honesty. THIS WORK WAS PERFORMED IN 2015 BUT THE DROP DOWN DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO SELECT 2015.


rating  The warmest house in the neighborhood!, by Edward

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, duct sealing, energy audit | Services completed: 2/2014

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: On the coldest day of the year Michael performed a blower test that revealed the thermal problems hidden behind the walls an ceiling. From Michaels vast training and experience he quickly pointed out the numerous air leaks. Michael explained the building science and made a cost effective recommendation. With one day sealing and blown in insulation I went from an R13 in the attic to R60. We had an immediate improvement in comfort and energy usage. Thank you live green!


rating  Super job!, by Ashley

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, duct sealing | Services completed: 4/2013

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: After having our home energy audit performed and receiving a couple of estimates for the work required to properly insulate our home, we got in touch with Live Green. Michael worked with us to determine what work from the audit was needed to make our home as efficient as possible. We were severely lacking in insulation in our attic, with some areas completely un-insulated, and very poor floor sealing (with some gaping holes) allowing a tremendous amount of heating/air conditioning to escape. Portions of our crawl space were completely un-insulated as well. We also had 3 recessed lights that were not sealed, an HVAC return that was completely un-insulated and a bathroom fan that was improperly vented. Live Green gave us a very reasonable estimate to address all of these issues and answered our many questions and concerns regarding the Pepco rebate and how that worked. They were very patient with us! It was only once they arrived and began work that they realized there was an extra reces


rating  Positive Experience!, by Gail

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, duct sealing, energy audit | Services completed: 11/2012

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Live Green LLC performed an energy audit of my home in June and provided me with a comprehensive written audit report in July. I decided to contract with them to perform a number of the recommendations in the report (blowing in attic insulation and air and duct sealing) and the work was accomplished throughout the course of one day in November. I found Michael Whelan to be an extremely knowledgable and approachable individual and I very much appreciated all of the great information that he provided both during the energy audit and again during the day the work was conducted. My resulting blower door test showed a 30% reduction in air leakage with the air sealing and insulation! Michael and his wife, Suzanne, also were great about providing me with info as to how to collect my MD energy tax credit. I would highly recommend Live Green LLC to anyone interested in having energy efficiency improvements made to their home.


rating  Excellent workmanship, by Doug

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, duct sealing, energy audit | Services completed: 10/2012

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: I hired Live Green LLC to conduct an energy audit and make recommendations on how we could even out the temperature differences in our upstair rooms. I was impressed with the quality and thoroughness of their report and agreed to have the air sealing and insulation performed. The team treated my home with respect and did an excellent job. The results speak for themselves. The temperature extremes are gone. Very happy.


rating  Great experience, by Wendy

Services provided: air sealing, insulation | Services completed: 2/2012

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: The energy audit was clear and understandable, making it easy to prioritize projects. In addition, the contractors were very personable. They put in extra effort to help make sure we were getting all the rebates possible (the state of Maryland ran out of funding, so they advised us to wait to see if Pepco would cover more-- which they eventually did). They helped us with our paperwork and were available to help when I had questions about other work that needed to be done. I strongly recommend them.


rating  Easy, affordable and effective! , by Coralee Hoffman

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 2/2012

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Live Green asked good questions, did a thorough energy audit, and offered practical suggestions on costs and benefits for this old house. The follow-up sealing and insulation made a difference right away in drafts and cold spots. Live Green gave us good advice on rebates and followed up quickly on paperwork. Mike and Suzanne are knowledgeable, friendly and responsive and the workmen were courteous and neat. Highly recommend both the improvements and Live Green.

rating  Excellent job!!! Very thorough from start to finish!!!, by Deepak

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 10/2011

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: We hired Live Green to complete an Energy Audit, which identified a number of improvement areas. I was skeptical of our ability to receive all of the tax credits. Live Green explained everything very well to me, completed all of the key paperwork, and made the entire process extremely straight forward start to finish. I rarely come across such excellent service so I am more than happy to recommend this company to anyone interested in improving their homes. The contractors that completed the home improvement worked well with Live Green, and they completed the work with surprising efficiency. Overall, my home is much more comfortable on every floor and room, particularly my child's room, which was of particular concern for us. From start to finish, my experience was fantastic.

Homeowner comments: Michael Whelan was my Live Green contractor and he did a thorough energy audit and a thorough follow up. I had some questions and he came back to answer those and to do some additional air sealing at no cost to me. My home feels more comfortable since the new insulation was installed and less drafty due to air sealing.

rating  Wonderful business experience, by Mark Becker

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, duct sealing, energy audit | Services completed: 6/2011

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: I hired Live Green to conduct an energy audit of my home and I hired them again to complete the recommendations from the audit. I would absolutely recommend Live Green to anyone interested in energy improvements. I give the company high marks in terms of value, service and integrity. First and foremost I found there prices to be very competitive. In fact, I called several of their competitors and found Live Green's proposal to be the most cost efficient. When you combine affordable costs and quality work you get top value. I will break down the quality of their service into two distinct areas, outcome and communication. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of their work. In addition to the monthly utility savings I invested in the energy improve to increase the comfort level of my home. Initially, there was a noticeable temperature difference among the different floors of my home. The top floors were always hot and the lower levels were always very cold. There was per

Homeowner comments: Installation went smoothly, results are anecdotal at this point but the house feels "tighter" Once Allegheny Power gets around to providing an actual reading I'll be able to tell definitively if the work provided energy savings.


rating  Energy Audit and Insulation , by Claudia Feldman

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 4/2011

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Our experience with Live Green was the best. Michael did a thorough energy audit, then discussed his finding with us and advised us where our biggest energy savings would be. We decided to have his company insulate our attic and seal air leaks. The result is a comfortable and more energy efficient upstairs in our house. After that we replace our air conditioner as Michael suggested we should do to save even more energy and make the whole house a more even temperature in all seasons.
