     It was recommended that I upgrade my HVAC to GEO by a heating company. I had Rob come in and check my house, he is very professional and knolagable.

     As the owner of a 100 year old home, I sometimes wonder where I should start in making my home more comfortable.  Rob came in and went through all of my utility bills, measured every window, checked the efficiency of my boiler and hot water heater, did a blower door test and walked through the house with an infrared camera and showed me where I need insulation, where the air infiltration is coming from.  A day later, he gave me a very comprehensive report that showed me the steps I can take...
