Are You A Landlord?

Owners of single-family residential homes or multi-family properties with less than 5 units under one roof are encouraged to take advantage of the Residential Solutions program. Increase the property’s desirability and maintain happy tenants by putting more money back into their pockets. There is little to NO cost to you depending on the extent of the improvements. Let your tenants know you care.

If you own a multi-family property with 5 or more units under one roof, there is a program just for you! Enhance the property by increasing the overall performance of the building and lowering your renters’ monthly bills. If you pay the electricity or water bill for the property, this is a quick way to save a lot on your monthly bills at NO cost to you.

FAQ

Depending on the number of AC units, size of the home, complexity, and extent of improvements, the industry standard pricing ranges from $1,200 to $4,000 and up.

Like homeowners, renters may register for an assessment. The only difference is that renters must obtain permission from their landlord.

As an example, an average 2000 sqft house with 3 bedrooms will be an investment of between 3-5 hours.

Yes. An adult over the age of 18 must be home.

Our weatherization techs have performed these services on homes of all types. Upon arrival, after the crew Team Leader introduces him or herself, they will perform a brief 5-minute visual assessment of the house, attic, ductwork condition, and accessibility. They will inform the homeowner of any challenges or pre-existing conditions before work. A formal proposal will be provided if the required improvements are excessive and outside the scope of work that the participating utility company incentivizes. There is no charge for the visit. However, we make every attempt to go above and beyond if a noticeable improvement can be made with the funding provided by the utility companies.

In other words, in the worst-case scenario, you receive a free assessment and estimate from a trained, experienced professional.

We are proud of the service we provide and our customer service. We urge you to ask questions and are pleased to show you before and after photos of our work and results. It is the homeowner’s discretion as to how involved you would like to be, but we do encourage questions and participation. In fact, if you want to partake in the hot attic and help us seal your ductwork we would be happy to have you join us.

From air conditioning and heating to every form of insulation and weatherization, we provide all home performance services necessary to improve comfort, indoor air quality, and the energy efficiency of homes and small commercial buildings. Due to the complexity of many homes, some clients require a more detailed inspection and consulting to diagnose contributing factors leading to their comfort issues with a blend of cost-effective resolutions.

Diversified Energy is a one-stop shop that finds solutions to concerns through all available products on the market rather than attempting to resolve a problem through the eyes of just one product or service.

* The program incentivizes the Cleco-approved contractors to provide a particular level of ductwork air sealing and home air sealing. An additional cost may be quoted based on the condition and extent of work required to seal the ductwork and air seal the home. Work shall occur only with the property owner’s approval.

** The approximate number of inches in the attic and the correlating rebate are based on the condition of the existing insulation. Age and gaps, among other characteristics in the existing insulation, can impact the R-value. This information is contained in the estimate.

Late post but I'm finally getting to it but I just want to say that Niki Aguillard and her helper did a great job in securing my home. They really... took their time and extra time fixing problems in and around the attic. Then they both explained to me what they were doing step by step. Thank you both so much!read more

Couldn’t be happier with the work they did on my home. It started with a consultation, where the individual was extremely knowledgeable and... professional, discussed overall energy optimization for my 1900s shotgun home and what would be the best bang for my buck given my specific home and problems. Really took a wholistic approach to energy efficiency rather than just giving 1 solution. After discussion and some quotes, we ultimately ended up with spray foam insulation in the attic and beneath the floors. I asked a lot of questions and all were answered quickly. The work was scheduled and completely relatively on time with minimal impact to my work schedule (much of it was able to be done without me being present). Upon initial inspection they were not happy with their own work (although i could not tell the difference) and redid a portion on their own dime. The commitment to quality work over getting it done quickly was something i was not used to seeing from contractors, and showed a great deal of ownership and pride in their work. Finally some minor damage was done as they completed and it was addressed quickly and at no cost to me. Overall highly recommend and the final product as exactly what i was looking for, as my home is much cooler and ready for a hot summer.read more

Nikki and her crew did an excellent job attending to my home energy needs. From the beginning, Nikki was very communicative letting me know exactly... what time the crew would arrive. They were very attentive to details, and made sure to keep me informed of everything that was going on throughout their work. They were even so kind as to let me know I had a roof leak, 😔, and notified me of it's location. They were mindful of my home and made sure not to disturb anything and even offered to help vacuum the house when they were done! They were also very aware, and kind, to my pup while going in and out the house, as he likes to dart around. Nikki made sure my gate and front door were always closed! (For those that have pets home while workers are present know how important this is.) I have had quite a few groups of people work on my home over the years and I can tell when someone cares about their work and when someone doesn't. Nikki and her team really cared, and I felt like I got to know them during the time they were working on my home. What a great job! It was a wonderful, EASY experience to work with them!read more

Jeff and his team were very informative and helped me to understand the way my AC and insulation were contributing to moisture issues I was having.... Through an educational approach, we addressed the most pressing issues and will re-evaluate progress over time. We added spray foam over a previous spray foam job that was inadequately done, corrected damaged duct work under my house with insulation, and replaced an oversized AC unit, all of which were contributing to excess moisture and wasted energy costs in my home.Jeff and team were also very friendly and professional, which was refreshing when I was being oversold and pressured by another company. I would certainly recommend Diversified Air to friends and family.read more

Diversified Energy, from its owner, Jeff Haag, to its team led by Nikki, were thorough, competent, professional, hard-working and cost-effective. We... had our attic ductwork sealed and then the entire attic floor insulated with blown-in cellulose fiber, covered completely by sheets of the cutting edge technology of QV Platinum PCM (Phase Change Material) [Diversified Energy is the sole provider of this technology in the metro area]. Our A/C system works less now, even with continuing heat. We recommend Diversified Energy for upgrading your home’s energy efficiency!!read more

Niki Aguillard and her crew came out to my house and did a fantastic job! They texted me what time they would arrive and they were on time. They made... sure every crack was sealed in my house and even put door sliders on the doors to keep the air from flowing in. They completely insulated the attic. They were very friendly and kind overall did an amazing job I’m very pleased with how they went over and beyond to ease every concern I had and I really appreciate their hard work. Would definitely recommend Diversified Energy “Plug into Comfort”read more

First off these are some friendly and professional people! They came in to our home and had nothing but respect and explained things in a way that... was more family/friend based than technical. BIG shout out to Mike and Ryan for the amazing help and work! They tested the house and did all the checks as well as made sure we had stuff in place. They hooked us up with a great light package that should help our energy use as well as lighting needs. Everything is top notch and amazing customer service!read more
