Matt was a real, professional and honest to his words. Everything regarding what would be done was clearly explained and documented. Photos of what would be done were taken in attic and basement. Matt was also very helpful in guiding us with financial assistance. Matt and his crew were prompt and set to task as stated prior. The crew was respectful, and cleaned up after leaving the home each day. Everything being done was explained before they started, giving approximation of how long the process would take for the day. Initially a test was taken to see how much heat was being lost from the home, ours was a poor reading, as I suspected. At the end of the work, the reading was much improved by 30%. On top of getting this work done, I was educated on energizing my home. I feel confident that the money we spent on this will not be regretted.

I appreciate persons who are highly knowledgeable about their work. Matt Sera inspected our home, tested it for air leaks, made recommendations about upgrades to make the house less leaky following a very thorough investigation using photo documentation. He knows what he is doing. When it came time for implementing the work, he brought two additional individuals with him who were expert in their job as well. As a result, our home energy efficiency was improved 34%, which he tested by before and after air leak tests. Highly impressive and reliable persons, and company.

I had 5 contractors give me an estimate for the work. All were excellent but Matt Sera, co-founder of the company, stood out. The 5 companies provided different approaches as to how to complete the work so I had to figure out which method was best for me. After learning what I could from the internet, Matt's method best suited what needed to be done at my house. Everything from start to finish (setting up the appointment for the estimate to the completion of the last detail) was handled professionally. The crew also was also very professional. Matt Sera actually worked (not just casually visited the work in progress or just supervised) along with the crew in the crawlspace and helped with the clean up. They left the house clean each day. Work was started and completed on time. There was excellent communication between Matt, the crew, and me and that helped the process go smoothly.

Atlas Energy insulated various parts of my house based on a home energy audit performed by another provider. I went with Atlas since they were reasonably priced and provided what they thought would be the most bang for the buck. They put a new vapor barrier down in my crawl space and used closed cell spray foam on the walls. They used open cell spray foam on my basement rim joists, to air seal the attic, and under the second story overhanging part of my house that was very leaky. They used blown in insulation to get my attic up to R60. Finally, they sealed my ducts using Aeroseal. I'm fussy on house work and I did some research on house insulation. I stayed home most of the 4 days they performed the work but it didn't seem necessary. There were anywhere from two to four workers on any given day. They were punctual, worked hard, and were very professional. They're work was excellent. They were also very neat since they took time to vacuum areas that were dirtied by them. I thought they walked me through the whole process well including getting the Pepco rebate afterwards. To get the rebate, they were required to show quantitatively the improvement made with the new insulation and duct sealing. I was around for most of the and they had good testing equipment. They delivered on what they promised in the contract and I was especially appreciative of the energy auditor Anthony who was very knowledgeable in the contract stage and who followed through the whole job with leak testing before and after the work was done. I would not have any reservations with using Atlas Energy again.

Atlas Home Energy Solutions did my insulation work for me. Anthony Cutler was who came to do the inspection and price quotes. He tailored the quote to our budget and did not pressure us or upsell. The crew was professional, on time, and clean. Anthony followed up with the rebates as well and really went above and beyond. I'd give them an A+!

Atlas Home Energy Solutions sealed and insulated my attic, properly routed bathroom attic fans to external locations, sealed and insulated band joists in my basement, weather-stripped doors and AEROSEALED the duct work connected to my HVAC unit. The crew that came to my home arrived promptly in the mornings as they pre-arranged, went right to work carefully protecting my personal belongings. They wore proper protective clothing for the type of work they were doing and appeared to each have their own job. They were at my house for a total of 3 days and each day before they left they cleaned up any mess they may have made. I was impressed with the professionalism with which they conducted themselves. Their work was definitely manual labor but they were at the top of the mark.

Everything was great. Anthony came to size up the job and give us an estimate. He gave very clear explanations as to what the work would involve and answered all of my questions. The team of four that came to do the work was professional and friendly. The work itself seems to have been performed extremely well, and the team was careful to contain any mess and left the worksites very clean. They submitted for the Pepco rebate that should cover half the work and sent me an email promptly to let me know when to expect the rebate.
