Howard Katzman’s Building Performance Consulting offers Georgia Power energy assessments, energy efficiency consulting and EarthCraft home certification in the Atlanta, GA metro area.
Working on our first EarthCraft certified project was a challenging task for us. We needed all the support we could get. Howard Katzman helped us to make it happen! His in-depth knowledge, professional approach and responsiveness made him a big asset for our project team. We learned a lot from him and highly recommend him.
Howard Katzman assessed my house and advised what rebates I could qualify for. He went above and beyond in making sure I understood his report and my options. Based on his information I moved forward with the Whole Home Improvement option and am now expecting a significant rebate check from GA Power. Money very well spent. My energy bills are lower already and my house is more comfortable. I gladly give him 5 out of 5 stars.
He was very punctual (4 hour process) and professional, explaining each step and test. Once completed, Mr. Katzman removed his equipment, cleaned up after himself and gave me a verbal synopsis of his findings. The details: The whole purpose for the assessment was for me to find out how I could improve the efficiency of my house and reduce its carbon footprint, and Mr. Katzman’s twelve page DETAILED report did just that! Each area of the assessment was thoroughly covered, in detail, written in a manner that I could easily comprehend. At reports end, his SUMMARY of the “Recommended Work Scope Packages” outlined “Good”, “Better”, “Best” improvements. Also included in the report are recommended “NEXT STEPS”, including pictures.
I used Howard Katzman to conduct a home energy audit. He was timely, thorough, and answered all of my questions. We were originally going to get 2 new HVAC systems, but after working closely with Howard and using his results and recommendations, we only had to get one new HVAC and spent our limited resources on insulation and other home improvements to save on energy costs. He also took care of all of the paperwork to process our GA Power credit. He was great to work with and I highly recommend him.
Howard did an extensive energy audit and he delivered a detailed comprehensive Home Performance Assessment Report a day or two after the testing which took 4-5 hrs working in my home. He found the causes of air leakage and dusty air quality in my home. I am very pleased with the recommendations that he listed in the report and look forward to completing the needed work and enjoying the air quality, plus other benefits in my home, in the future. A neighbor recommended me to Howard and I am thankful that he did!
Howard Katzman did a Home Performance Assessment for me. I was very impressed by his professionalism, honesty, follow-up and customer care. Howard responded to my initial contact in a timely manner. He quoted a price based on the information I shared on my house specifications. Howard explained aspects of what he was doing and why. After I received the report Howard called to see if I had any questions. He is also willing to suggest professionals to take care of the issues I want to address. Howard is for assessment report follow-up questions and professional recommendations whenever I may have them.
Howard is great at what he does and you can't go wrong with getting a home energy assessment conducted by him. Howard was recommended based on his background and experience and I could not have been more pleased. Howard focuses his recommendations primarily on energy improvements with the biggest return on investment, which I really appreciated. His assessment and report are extremely thorough and he even helps to evaluate offers from contractors to conduct the recommended work. I highly recommend Howard.
We have a large old house that we wanted to make more energy efficient. We hired Howard Katzman to do an energy assessment. His report was excellent; he had a very clear list of things we could improve, along with their priorities. He was also very responsive on follow up and communicated with the contractors we eventually hired to do the work. One of the main reasons we chose him was that he is "independent" (he does the assessments, but not the work). But he also made good recommendations for contractors, which worked out well.
I chose Howard because I liked that he does the audit but does not also do the repairs. Howard was fantastic! He is truly an expert at what he does. He is thorough, detailed and patient. He gave us a detailed report and encouraged us to contact him with any questions (which I did and he got back to me immediately.) Howard takes his work seriously and is really in your home to help you!
We had Howard do an energy audit on our built-in-1968 expanded ranch house. He helped us find several ways to reduce our gas and electric bills, and made a solid set of recommendations to help us decide which fixes to pursue first. He's also been very helpful in finding contractors, and in general he's helped us to understand the how's and why's of the testing and suggested work. I strongly recommend you ask him to do an energy audit on your house too.
I have worked with Howard Katzman for over three years and found his level of professionalism and expertise unmatched in the industry. I highly recommend him for your next renovation, new build or energy improvement project.
As a contractor I have seen firsthand the care and thought that Howard Katzman puts into all of his clients. His recommendations are focused not only on saving energy costs, but primarily on improving the comfort and performance of your home. All in all, I cannot say enough about the level of expertise from Howard Katzman Building Performance Consulting.
My home renovation company has recently been required to totally air-seal and infuse energy efficiency into our product for an EarthCraft project. Once selecting Howard Katzman Building Performance Consulting as our home energy representative, it was obvious we made the correct decision. The dedication, professionalism and knowledge of the product was truly amazing, my co-workers and I have learned so much from Howard Katzman about the importance of energy savings as well as cost savings to the homeowner.
Howard arrived on time and inspected my house with a blower door and an in-depth inspection of the crawlspace, attic, walls, windows, and doors. A few days later, he gave me a comprehensive report of the state of the house regarding energy efficiency, comfort, and some structural issues. He created a prioritized list of recommendations for us and recommended a company to perform the work.
Howard is very professional and knowledgeable. The audit took approximately 4 hours. Howard conducted a very thorough examination of the house and attic including a blower door test to check total home air leakage. His follow-up report was very thorough and easy to understand.
We had a great experience with Howard. He thoroughly checked out 1930's bungalow out and made plenty of recommendations - but also let us know what options for improvements wouldn't really benefit us...he kept us from doing things that would cost a lot of money and not save us at least as much money in the long run. I'd recommend Howard's services if you're concerned about the efficiency of your home and are unsure of how to move forward - I feel you can trust his assessment.
