John O’Day – Hydeville
“I knew my house was not efficient at all,” said John of his 1800’s home in Hydeville. “It was cold and the wind would come right through.”
“I was impressed by the [contractor’s] professionalism and suggestions. They went through every nook and cranny in the house. You could feel the difference— didn’t feel as drafty.” John told his poker buddies about the improvements and now they are having home energy improvements done, too!
