NEW FURNACE INSTALLATION

I needed a new furnace and was referred to your company by the seller.
The next day your employee arrived on time and quickly did his job then explained the rebate and how to improve my homes for lover energy cost.
His follow up visit was again on time and informative.
Your service with little effort on my part save me over $700.
Than you!

House Renovation

Very pleased with Tyler's service from Barrier Sciences Group. He did a thorough inspection explaining my options for upgrading the different areas of the home renovation which would qualify for the rebate. The areas included upgrades in attic insulation, wall insulation, furnace, water heater, windows, doors and air sealing. I couldn't afford all upgrades so Tyler worked with me on what renos would benefit the most with my budget. The only negative l had was the time frame for doing the
actual work which is not the fault of Tyler. 120 days is minimal time when I'm doing the majority of the
renovation. A time frame of 6-12 months would be acceptable for a home owner. There is a wait of approximately 90 days after final inspection of the completed work before rebate cheque is received in the mail....l have 45 days to go. It's nice to receive some return from the expenses from renovation upgrades. I would contact Tyler again if l qualified for another rebate in a future renovation.

New Carrier Furnace and Water Heater

We recently purchased a new Carrier furnace and a new hot water tank.
With this we had Barrier Sciences Group assess our home and provide a efficiency diagnosis on our home.
The two visitations made by your group were very informative and we considered it to be time well spent and very informative in regard to additional ways of making our home more efficient.

Energy Audit

First audit - auditor was very pleasant and tried to explain a lot of things, but not so much as to listen as to what I have to say. Before, during and after the audit I clearly stated that I am more interested in rebate for home insurance from CMHC and not the regular Enbridge one. The whole time the Enbrdidge rebate program was what was pushed to me.
Post-assessment audit was only check, not real audit. Not very happy.
Another issue was that it was not clearly stated which water heaters will qualify for rebate.
Third issue was that on pre-assessment I was told if I execute certain items I will get certain rebates. Based on this I did more than originally planned. So all identified items complete and guess what - on the post assessment I am being told that I would get less because "for this house it will be really difficult to get" what I was told initially.

Overall - not satisfied and next time I will choose a different company.

Renovation upgrade report

We recently purchased and have had installed our Carrier furnace and A/C.
With this we had Barrier Sciences Group assess our home and provide a very thorough efficiency road map on our home which has proved to be very beneficial.
The two visitations made by your group proved to be most informative and the time spent could not have been dealt with in a more efficient way other than that done.

Furnace installation

Ryan was our service man. He has excellent customer service skills and professionalism. He worked around my work schedule to make time to check on our upgrades that would qualify us for rebates after having installed our new furnace for this coming winter. He gave great suggestions and recommendations and explained in detail what he was doing/looking for while for g throughout our home.

Energy Audit

It was a great experience they came in did their work in under 30 mins the first visit. After I had all my house Reno’s done, they came back for another 30 minutes. It was painless and super efficient. I got an email weeks later about the rebate I would be receiving in 120 days. It was worth the upfront costs! Thank you!!
