National Energy Solutions

Not working at all

Ralph came to my house and gave me a home energy audit. He recommended me the reflective insulation. I was skeptical about that but he agreed to let me visit his house with the reflective insulation installed in the attic. I was sold by how cool his attic was and let him installed in my house. Now that the summer has started and my attic is as hot as it was before. It is no where nearly as cool as at his attic. My May and June power bills are as much as last year. I was really disappointed and couldn't believe I've wasted thousand of dollars. I heard on a radio talk show one day and for those who consider this, please ask this question: If the reflective insulation really works, then when you wrap a potato with aluminum foil and bake it. Would it still cooks?

Club Corners Carwash

Lying to me...

I stop by because I see their sign of $15 Emission test service. When I pulled in, the technician told me they ran out of certificates. I when inside to get their business card so I can call in advance. The person in counter told me they're upgrading their system. Two different answers. I thought I would give them another chance. A few days later, I call to make sure they can do the Emission test before came in. The technician took my car and only a couple of minutes later, came in the waiting area to get me. He told me my car's OBD port has no power and therefore, he can't check it. I toke my care home and wondering if a few has blown. I open the fuse box and don't see any fuse for OBD. I called the service department and ask him about the OBD port and he said there is no fuse. I then drove to a friend and test it with his OBD scanner. The OBD port is fine. I took my car to another Emission test play and they can read my OBD port and passed my car. I believe these people do the test for cheap so people would bring their cars there for oil change or car wash. If you only want to do emission test, they don't want to do it.

Don't sign up for the Preventive Maintenance

Last year after I purchased a house, I called Casteel come to service my 2 a/c units. I was talked in to purchase the Preventive Maintenance. They supposed to come by to check my systems in the winter but they didn't come. I also forgot about it. Now the winter has gone and I found that one of my compressor is not running. I remember the the maintenance service and called them. They say they would charge me for the service call + the repair. I ask them about the second visit on my agreement, they said that was for the heating part and they can schedule for that. Why would I need them to check my furnace while the a/c is running. They said I will get a 20% off of the service with the maintenance plan but my invoice didn't indicate the discount. I have wasted the Preventive Maintenance program. To be fair, the technicians were great both times so I give 5 stars for the quality.

Unique Refinishers Inc

Good work but not a total service.

I called Unique Refinishers to repair a couple of chips on my tub and they suggested I reglaze the entire tub. The technician shows up promptly. I was a bit surprise with the $5.00 fuel surcharge. I can understand the fuel surcharge when gas price jump up unexpectedly. But, gas price was pretty stable at mid $2.00's for quite some time now. The tub looks good after finished. However, I have to warn some of you that this process required some DIY skills. They left with wet paint on the tub and tape around the edges. You need to wait for 24 hrs for the paint to dry before removing the tape. Then, you will have to install the vent cover, which should be easy. You will also need to re-calk the surrounding of the tub. This may not be easy job for most people if you want it to look nice and smooth. I would suggest they would come back and finish the calking as part of the service. If your tub have slip-resistant, you will lose that. The entire tub will be smooth and shinny.

Parkman Home Inspections, LLC

Simply the best home inspector in town

This is the third time I have to hire an inspector. I wasnít happy with the previous two. We were purchasing a 2 year old house and I wasnít expecting to see any issue in this house. Instead, Mike took his time and found so many issues. He found an issue which there was no heat/ac out on half of the first floor; an issue that the past homeowner didnít notice for almost 2 years and their home inspector has overlooked when they first purchased the house. Because of his findings, we were able to get the seller to fix them before we closed the house. Parkman Home Inspections will be our home inspector from now on.

Winter Weather Advisory in Geogia?

You got to be kidding, Winter Weather Advisory in GA? If I remember correctly, the only thing closed was Grade Schools. Not even banks. You know what else? Kroger don't even run out of Bread and Milk. Thanks for your feedback. I was about to call them to refinish my floor.
