Sorry for being away so long, the South Florida and Coral Gables real estate market is picking up and we are adjusting to the new flood of business!
But I will not keep you on the edge of your seats any longer, I have completed the (Almost) Free Insulation Installation that was enabled by my $300 voucher from FPL. For those of you who do not read this blog regularly (what is your problem?) you may not recall my previous article about getting a FREE FPL Home Energy Survey which has led me to the point of getting the aforementioned sweet deal.
So back to the lecture at hand, I had originally decided to copy a list of all of the insulation providers that FPL gave me with my notes on them and what price they charged. Although most were very polite and reasonably priced, some were rude and outrageously priced. So instead of trashing half of the insulation companies on the list I have chosen the road to positivity and will only tell you that I chose “A Best Insulation Inc.” definitely not for their name, but for their price of $312 and because they were very polite. I will tell you that if you want the list you can email me and I will be glad to provide it to you, and just a word of warning for my Coral Gable Blog Insiders: Don’t call All About Insulation Corp., what they are actually “All About” is getting your address undoubtedly for some nefarious endeavor and if you don’t give it to them they will hang up on you…sniff sniff smells like a scam to me.
So once again we return to the conclusion of this saga that started way back when with the A/C Duct Cleaning Scam which you can read about here. This time the “A Best Insulation” guys arrived at 1pm which was at the end of the 11am-1pm timeframe but they still made it on time. They were very business like and although one of them had a few more tattoos than I would like to see on someone that is working on my home, even he was very polite and professional. They ran a hose with the insulation and one of the guys climbed up into the attic and started spraying. It took about 30 minutes and they were done. I gave them the certificate and the $12 cash and they even vacuumed up some of the insulation that had fallen on the floor during the process.
All in all I was very happy with their service and would highly recommend them, as far as the whole process of getting FPL to come do the home energy survey and the actual installation of the insulation it probably took up about 3 hours of my time max, now thats a deal!
Here is a pic of my new fully insulated attic, they sprayed pink yes it’s very girly but apparently heat does not like pink…
