I have to say the people that worked here, were just so awesome. They never stopped working. From the insulators, plumbing, electrician. They were also so kind and personable, they never made me feel like a charity case and Dave was just so WONDERFUL to deal with. He explained everything and went out of his way to help me with some things he called minor, but I didn’t see it that way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You all are sure a blessing. I am so very GRATEFUL. They certainly should be proud of everyone. You all are such GOOD PEOPLE!!! THANKS AGAIN.
The energy audit went well. The technician informed us of what work would be recommended to better insulate our home. We will be using Efficient Home to complete our attic insulation. Thanks!
What an asset it has been for our organization to work with Efficient Home. Their work is excellent and I cannot quantify or place a value on the knowledge they bring to the table. We had a federal audit on a project that Efficient Home had weatherized under DOE. It was one of the best audits in recent history of Maryland and DOE grants. This is an example of the fine work they do on every job.

I would like to thank Joe most sincerely. It impresses me that Joe does not treat his work with Efficient Home as simply a job, but it’s his way of helping humanity, making the society a better place. He did this not only with his kind words, but also with his caring deeds. I am certain that many people have benefited from his service, the most recent two are my elderly parents.
The technician came today for my energy check up. Just wanted to let you know that he was on time, courteous, professional and knowledgeable. As a senior citizen I really appreciated his support.
Our new HVAC system was installed today. The bonus is we won’t have to listen to the roar when the heater comes on this winter. All this, plus lower energy bills and reduced negative effect on our environment. All I can say is WOW, THANK YOU and YOU GUYS ROCK!
The technician was so kind and helpful. My sister and I are grateful that we have learned how to use energy more efficiently and how to increase savings throughout the rest of the year.
Your services were priceless! Thank you for making it so easy to prioritize our improvements. We got a ton of bang for our buck!
First and foremost, I would like to thank Habitat for Humanity and the Efficient Home LLC team – Joe Carrol (the lead person + kitchen appliances), Brendon Ross and Joshua Scott (Water Heater installers), Ashton and Nick (HVAC installers) for their warmth and caring professionality. When I applied for the Home Energy Efficiency Program through Habitat for Humanity, I have to admit that I truly did not know what the outcome would be. Would it be a prolonged waiting period? Would funding for the program be diverted to other things before implementation? My concerns were unfounded. I was met with an impressive response time and an even more impressive team of people. I am so grateful not only for a more energy efficient home but added cheer. This program serves multiple purposes. Thank you for making my home more comfortable.
Your technician installed low energy light bulbs, new smoke detectors and insulated my hot water lines. He was on time, friendly, courteous and did an excellent job of explaining the advantages of the LED light bulbs installed. I was pleased and impressed.
