I live in Texas, in a mid-sized (1900 sq ft), 30+ year-old, 2 story home, so as you can imagine, I've seen some fairly outrageous utility bills. It was shortly after having received one of these monstrous invoices, that Christian, with Green Street, happened by my residence, and asked if he might have a moment of my time to discuss some of the benefits of upgrading my home's energy efficiency. Naturally, I was receptive. Long story shorter, I agreed to the terms and pricing schedule, and week later, at most, I had 2 solarf attic fans, radiant barrier, additional insulation, and a small amount of window treatment installed in my home. The contracted workers were swift, corteous, and professional, though one of my curtains ended up brown with attic dust and insulation particles where on of the installers entered and exited the house. Unfortunately, Christian and his team did not pay me a visit until after the worst of the summer season had already passed, so I cannot yet speak intelligently about the difference all of the upgrades have provided me. We shall see soon, as May turns to June, and our average temperatures hold steady right around the century mark. I will update this post in August or September, when I can more accurately describe for you all the difference (if any) in my utility bills, pre and post Green Street improvements. **Current rating is 3 stars, as I have not yet seen the value (we ain't been through a summer in Texas yet). Will adjust, as necessary, in August or September**

The 2nd floor of our 2-story home gets very hot in the summer time. Having read about the tax rebates being offered for energy improvements, we decided to look into it before the summer hits. We hired Green Street to do an energy audit for us. Christian Evans was very knowledgeable and thorough with his audit. He inspected the insulation and duct work in our attic, measured the temperature of air coming from each room's duct, with the a/c running, and did some other tests. He then explained to us his recommendations for improvements. We decided to hire them to put in additional insulation, install a solar attic fan, add radiant barrier in our attic, and install window film on a westward-facing window. The crew arrived on time, laid mats to protect our carpet on a rainy day, worked all that day and half the next, and thoroughly cleaned up after themselves. Christian took care of warranty paperwork and tax rebate forms. We will have to wait till the heat of the summer to see how the improvements affect our utility costs, but we are optimistic that the work will pay for itself quickly. We would highly recommend Green Street to anyone in Austin who needs this kind of work done at their home.
We had a great experience with Green Street. Starting with the initial energy audit, they really worked to determine which upgrades were going to make the most difference for our house. We never felt like there was pressure to get more than we needed or add items we didn't think we could afford right now. The installation was fast. We were expecting that there would be a delay - maybe even a week or two if other services like cable are any indicator - but the installation team showed up early the next day. They worked up in our hot attic all day long and were able to finish everything. Not only were we amazed, we actually felt a little bad because now we know how hot it was getting up there. Now that we've had a chance to see one of our electric bills, we can say that the radiant barrier and solar-powered fan in the attic are making an immediate difference. It's hard enough to keep our house cool when the temperature outside is near 100 degrees, I'm glad we don't also have to worry about all the heat trapped in our attic too. If you are thinking about making some improvements to your house, I recommend going with Green Street.
A GreenStreet representative came to our house and gave us a free energy audit. We knew that our house was only mildly efficient. The energy audit was very informative for us. The GreenStreet employee was very knowledgeable and professional. He showed us where our house was lacking efficiency and how much money and energy we could save by making certain changes. After the audit, it was very obvious to us that our priorities needed to be adding insulation in our attic, adding a radiant barrier, adding solar attic fans, and insulating our garage. After the installation, we could feel an immediate difference! We are really looking forward to our lower energy bills! While our home's efficiency was a small concern for us, it was one of those things that was on the "back burner". However, GreenStreet came along at just the right time. Paying electricity bills in the summer in Texas has been harsh! I wish we had made our home more efficient earlier!
The team at Green Street Energy-Austin was professional and efficient. During the initial home energy audit their representative reviewed the various areas of our home and took measurements. He also explained and demonstrated the products that were available to increase our home efficiency. Later in the discussion he included our projected monthly energy savings should we decide to proceed with the home upgrade. The installation was complete the following week. Again, the team was informative throughout the entire process, addressed questions appropriately, and completed the project in a timely manor. They were also very friendly and accommodating to our two dogs, which made the day much easier. We have already noticed positive changes in our home and it is much more comfortable! We were very impressed with the professionalism of Green Street Energy and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to increase the efficiency of their home.
Green Street provided us an energy audit of our home and identified a number of areas that they indicated would help us lower our electric bills and make our home more energy efficient. Their recommendations was to install radiant barrier in our attic, install a solar attic fan, increase the amount of insulation in the attic to an R38 value, and to seal the duct work around our AC units that was leaking cold air into the attic. The Green Street team showed up early, worked all day to finish the job, and cleaned up when complete. I was very happy with the level of workmanship and their commitment to start and complete the work in one day (as promised). While I have only had the products installed for a couple of weeks now, my attic is much cooler since the work was done and my AC unit is not running as often. I am happy with the decision to use Green Street.
We had a radiant barrier, solar attic fans, and a few other energy enhancements done to our home. The work crew worked quickly and with minimal interruption. They generally kept the house clean, though they did leave our bathroom a bit of a mess. They also explained everything they were doing clearly and kept us updated on their progress. The prices were extremely competitive and the results so far have been pretty amazing. We're anxious to see how it goes in July and August. There were some hiccups coordinating with the office, but a lot of that seems to be because they are very busy. I would definitely recommend them to my friends.
We had radiant barrier along with a few other cost-saving items installed in our home recently. The installation was very professional. They laid down cloths for the areas they walked/worked in and kept the house clean. All of the workers were very courteous and the job was finished in one day. The project manager was very good about getting back to me on any questions I had. I was definitely impressed with the level of service. And I'm looking forward to seeing how much money we save when the hot summer months roll around.
I had the energy audit done on my home and found alot of inefficiencies. GreenStreet put together a package together that would address those issues and reduce my energy bills by 30%. After 8 or so months my bills have dropped between 20% and 40% depending on the month.
