Homeowner reviews

review this contractor now


rating  Fantastic, thorough job. Highly recommended., by Eleanor

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

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: My experience with Rich and Home Energy HERO was one of the best I've ever had with a contractor. During my initial energy audit ($100 for PEPCO customers) he thoroughly and clearly explained my home's energy use, PEPCO's rebate program, and all the options I had to increase my home's efficiency. He installed a few energy saving devices, like pipe insulation, during the first visit, which was already included in the $100 audit cost. Rich also recommended a few things I could do myself to decrease energy loss and increase my home's comfort. Soon after the audit he emailed me the results of his tests, clearly laying out my options and the energy savings and rebates I could expect. I decided to go ahead with air sealing and re-insulating my attic. The contractors arrived on time, working cleanly and efficiently. They did an outstanding job, and were extremely thorough. Rich completed the "test-out" process when they were through and my house easily met the requirements for the PEPCO rebate. He worked with me to maximize my savings and submitted all the rebate paperwork himself. I'm anticipating much lower energy bills next winter, and enjoying a warmer, less drafty home right now. I highly recommend both the PEPCO energy audit process (even if you don't need extensive air sealing or re-insulation) and the services of Home Energy HERO.

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 11/2011

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Home Energy Hero executed the insulation and air sealing in our home, and the improvement is remarkable. Our home was very leaky, and after the insulation remodeling, we are already experiencing a more efficient use of our home heating utilities.

rating  Good job, by Mack Family

Services provided: energy audit | Services completed: 6/2011

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: We live in an older home and our oil and electric bills are very costly. Rich from Home Energy Hero completed an energy audit and provided information on ways to cut overall costs on utility expenses. He was very professional and guided us each step of the way. He worked with the insulation contractors, assisted with documentation etc... Our first electric bill after insulation and caulking cracks was approximately $60.00 lower and this was the hottest month of the year JULY. We are very pleased.


rating  Energy Audit and Home Sealing, by SteveB

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

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: The energy audit was very comprehensive, and all of my questions were happily answered as he went through the house. Home Energy Hero helped communicate the needs of the house properly to the contractor that did the insulation and sealing. After the home sealing, the retest was performed, the house passed its leak test, and he even helped prepare some of the paperwork. It made the process fairly painless.


rating  What a difference this work has made, by G Prandoni

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

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Working with Home Energy HERO was an excellent experience. Mr. Dexter made sure the work that was contracted was done correctly and to the highest quality. He was on sight and reviewed all work that was completed. Since working with HEH I have had a house that is much cooler on the hottest of days, free of drafts and loss of precious cooled air. I look forward to the winter months to see the results in my energy bills.


rating  Excellent service, by Kathryn

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

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Home Energy HERO provided us with professional, courteous and efficient service. The owner personally comes to the home, providing a report within 7-10 days. Because he doesn't for for a heating, cooling, etc., provider, he suggests the most economical approach to resolving problems. Is willing to be in the home while work is being done and does "odd jobs" (energy related) to help the homeowner. Would definitely recommend this service.


rating  Highly Recommended, by Eric T

Homeowner comments: Not only did Rich provide excellent service for our family, he also tolerated my many questions. All around great experience and I'm glad that we finally found somebody we can rely on for any and all of our home repair needs.


rating  Great Service, by Elissa

Services provided: insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 2/2011

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: We just moved in to our new large home from a small townhouse in December. The first months bill from Pepco was $750.00 and we dreaded what would happen when winter really hit. Rich, the owner of Home Energy Hero, was the first person to respond to my request for a home energy audit. He personally came out to our home and did the work for us directly, instead of sending a technician or other representative. He worked quickly and efficiently, reviewing all of our issues very thoroughly. Our audit report was available by email within a week, and from there, he advised us to do things such as adding a programmable thermostat and change light bulbs. He also scheduled an insulation job for us that was done the following week at a great price. Rich helped us find all of the possible rebates that were available through the State and through Pepco, and worked with us to fill out the paperwork. When the insulation was put in, he personally supervised the project and helped to finish oth


rating  Energy Audit and Duct Sealing, by Andrew

Services provided: air sealing | Services completed: 2/2011

The contractor has verified this job: No

Homeowner comments: The audit showed that sealing the ducts in my home would offer the best return on investment and would pay for itself in 4 years. Rich Dexter did a thorough check of our home and systems we are pleased with the results, the HVAC seems to run less than before the sealing.


rating  Superb work, by VERY satisfied homeowner

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 1/2011

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Rich Dexter, owner and manager for Home Energy HERO, did a superb job in his personal work, explaining situations, overseeing others, and completing the job. He's punctual, efficient, and patient. Great to work with -- and reasonably priced!!


rating  Unbiased assessment and support, by Jessica Sokira

Services provided: energy audit | Services completed: 1/2011

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: We had a lot of fun with Rich showing us how the various tools were measuring certain items. He was thorough, efficient and answered our numerous questions. He also helped us model geothermal retro fit savings per our particular building science. A must do for anyone considering any retrofit (geothermal in this case). He doesn't represent a contractor so there is no conflict of interest. Our actual savings for geothermal turned out to be less than half of what the geo contractors were showing as "savings".


rating  A Well-Deserved Company Name, by Very Satisfied Customer

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 12/2010

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Rich Dexter, owner of Home Energy HERO, performed an energy audit of our home late last Fall. The audit consisted of extensive ait flow monitoring and heat leak sensing with an I. R. camera, plus courteous explanations at each step of the process. He pointed out numerous places where convective heat loss could be sealed off and where added insulation would pay off. He recommended a capable local company and personally supervised their work. When a 6-square=foot shaft between the attic and basement was discovered, Rich did the carpentry to seal it off. Our January heating bill was at least 10% than in December and in the previous January. Through Rich Dexter's efforts our 45-year-old home will be a bit cosier, now.


rating  Great Experience with Home Energy HERO, by Michael Smolyak

Services provided: air sealing, insulation, energy audit | Services completed: 11/2010

The contractor has verified this job: Yes

Homeowner comments: Richard Dexter, the company owner performed the energy audit in my house, and then supervised insulation/air sealing work done by the contractor he recommended. I was very impressed with Richard's thoroughness and professionalism. He spend about 5 hours during energy audit doing meticulous measurements, taking photographs with thermal camera and doing pressure testing. He stayed in my house while contractors did the insulation. He also did a few minor energy improvements. He produced the audit report less than a week after the audit. The report was very professionally done explaining the house energy rating and suggesting impro vements. After insulation work was done, Richard brought all the paperwork necessary for receiving tax credits. The insulation done based on Richard's suggestions made our bedroom much more comfortable and lowered the BGE bill by about 10% compared to prior years.
