  • David did an energy audit on the house I bought.  He explained as he went along what he was doing and what would need done. Part of the attic needed added insulation, which he arranged to have done which was a great help to me. He was friendly and professional.

  • I recently used 1st Choice Energy to perform a required Austin energy audit on my parent's home that I am assisting them in selling. They responded to my initial inquiry quickly, quoted a great price right then, and was able to schedule the audit within the next few days.

  • 1st Choice Energy did a great job from start to finish on the weatherization work for my new home purchase!

  • 1st Choice Energy gave excellent advice on what needed to be done to install a new A/C unit and to add insulation in our 60 year old house. They did the estimate which turned out to be by far the lowest.

  • 1st Choice Energy is simply The Best! Very friendly and professional, they know what they're doing and they do it quickly and thoroughly. They were on time and trustworthy, and explained the inspection process and the energy-saving recommendations clearly and logically.

  • 1st Choice Energy came over to help me understand why my electricity bill had jumped by 50%. They were extremely professional and helpful, fully explained the problem, and wrote me up a thorough recommendation.

  • 1st Choice Energy was great to work with. They was very responsive and able to get everything set up for us very quickly. We had AC and weatherization work done. I would highly recommend 1st Choice Energy, especially if you're going through the Austin Energy Rebate or Loan route.

  • I wholeheartedly recommend the services provided 1st Choice Energy.  When I first learned that I needed an energy audit before my final inspection could be completed, I was a little nervous about what needed to be done.
