This company is nothing but professional! They exceeded all my needs, answered all my questions and installed my solar heat with excellence. My children love how warm the pool is (so do I ). Ethan is a hands on guy and never hesitates to answer any question, anytime. Look no further, Solar Living Inc is the only company to use hands down!!!!

We had an issue with the backup hot water heater and Solar Living determined it needed to be replaced. They were able to contact the distributor and assure that the cost of a new heater was still covered under our warranty. They found the problem and were very responsive with help -- following up until they were able to obtain the new heater. They were able to work with our existing pipes and, at the same time, installed a new regulator. They removed the old equipment and installed the new and left the work area spotless. We've worked with them before and they are always responsive and very professional. They are on time and do excellent work. I recommend them very highly.

The Solar Living team definitely deserves straight A's. From my first contact with them, they displayed a high degree of professionalism. When performing the work, they were prompt and extremely respectiful of our home. Before they left, they made sure we understood the systems and were happy with the quality of the work performed. Solar is a great way to reduce (or in some cases, eliminate) energy costs. But having the right company doing the installation is essential. It seems that companies pop up daily claiming to do solar systems. These guys are the real deal! I recommend them whole-heartedly.

They contacted me via email saying they do solar for pools. I said I was interested in solar and I never heard from them again.

Category electrician,solar panels

Service Provider Response

We responded to your initial 845am request for a quote for pool services we do not perform with our standard reply explaining our services are limited to solar pool heating at 905am just 20 minutes after your request for a quote for a liner replacement (which we do not do). Later that day (1131am) you expressed an interest in an "idea as to the cost to do solar heating for a pool 14x28 and later that evening (825p) we provided you with a ballpark starting price for the pool size you provided. Did you not receive that information through Angie's List app/email? We received no other contact from you. Our apologies for not following up sooner but usually no reply after ballpark pricing indicates a lack of interest. We certainly would have made arrangements to visit with you if we were aware you were still interested.

Mike and Ethan are great. They have been tending to my 20 year old solar pool heating system for years and always do a great job. They are straight up about what is worth fixing and keeping the system working at it's best. Mike shows no hesitation, climbing up on a roof which I dread to tread on, to repair my solar panels. Plus they are just nice to work with and they care about doing great work!!

Ethan and Mike from solar living did a great job. From the first time I contacted Ethan he was very communicative. He provided a detailed description of the steps needed to complete the job and a price estimate. A few days before the job he called to confirm. Ethan and Mike arrived right on time and went straight to work. Before beginning the job the system was checked and Mike and Ethan ensured that the panels and frames could be removed and the roof etc would stay intact. This was a messy job as these old solar panels were all broken down. The panels were removed and metal parts were hauled away. The work area was left in pristine condition. Ethan and Mike were very knowledgeable, efficient, and pleasant to work with. The cost of the job was right on point with the estimate I would highly recommend Solar Living for any of your jobs needing expertise in this area.

Cipher & Lyn D.

These guys really know their stuff!. We couldn't get the original installers to respond and reached out to Solar Living. They responded quickly, were able to come to the house to check out our situation the same day because they were nearby and then sent us a detailed estimate explaining exactly what they would do -- removal, temporary storage, meeting flashing requirements, electrical work, sealing for each penetration (our original problem with the roof), materials; their estimate included information on building code requirements and an offer to add rodent protection for the wiring. They completed both the removal and reinstallation (after two hard rains) as promised, on schedule. They are very knowledgeable about solar equipment and excellent communicators about any work that needs to be done and why and how. They are very professional and worked well with our roofers. We are ordering a new solar attic fan for our house from them and have already recommended them to a couple of friends.

Description of Work
Needed to have our solar panels removed in order to have our roof replaced, then reconfigure and reinstall the solar panels after the new roof was in place.

This is the most professional, courteous, friendly company we have ever encountered. Appointments were kept, phone calls returned promptly. They provide a high quality product that is locally manufactured. When Ethan came to give us an estimate, he looked at the pool and pump location, measured the roof, sat down with literature and explained the system. What was most refreshing is there was no high-pressure sales pitch. It was very casual and matter-of-fact. We gave him a deposit that day, he put us on the schedule, we had our installation in less than two weeks. Ethan and Mike did the installation themselves, they were quick, clean, and did a great job around some close landscaping. They did not break twig! The job was done in June (2018) The pool warmed up after 2 sunny days. We’ve had our pool for 12 years and was only able to enjoy it during a heat wave. I’m anxious to see how quickly it will warm up when we open it next spring. For anyone thinking about solar heat, I HIGHLY recommend this company. Thank you Ethan & Mike
