Comments from some of our satisfied customers...
"It’s the end of February and we are experiencing another cold damp winter. I’m sitting in the kitchen and wondering where in heavens name the draft is coming from. Our house, a dormer bungalow of about 25 years had the standard insulation fitted during the build. There were many changes to doors and windows during this time and extra insulation was recently pumped into walls and ceilings with no great reduction in heating costs. My wife and I decided something had to be done but before tackling the insulation again we both decided that it was best to get a professional to take a look. With a woman in agreement it took very little time to hear that snughome.ie a company in County Laois had been booked for a Saturday morning in March.
On the agreed day and on time Dan Slevin arrived with stacks of gear for the job in hand and following the introductions and the briefest of chats we were told that we should carry on as normal and Dan set to work with his thermal imaging camera. I can’t be sure how long it took but it was somewhere between 3 to 4 hours. When the survey was finished Dan and I, over a cup of coffee, talked briefly about the heat loss issues and I was told a more detailed document would arrive via mail. I knew even at this stage that this was the best money I had ever spent on the house.
The full report arrived as promised and I was absolutely amazed by the amount of photos and the simple language used to describe each one. The detailed issues highlighted in each room, door and loft area were top class. Suggestions as to how we might deal with these issues and a list of reliable companies were also provided
Dan you are a real professional in what you do, polite as well. I thank you most sincerely for all your efforts and wish you and snughome.ie all the best for the future.

"I was seriously thinking of spending thousands of euro and replacing all the doors and windows,insulating the walls and ceilings in our very cold house when my brother suggested getting a thermal imaging inspection done on the house to find out for sure where the heat loss was occuring. Subsequently I searched for a company that I felt would provide a suitable service. I contacted www.snughome.ie and filled out the contact form, as stated snughome contacted me within one working day. Dan from snughome suggested that the blower door/air tightness test in conjunction with thermal imaging would do the job for me. Dan was very courteous and professional and explained the whole process to me from start to finish, unlike some other companies who were very vague and quite frankly made me feel like an idiot!
Dan Arrived when he said he would, and conducted the whole process with very little disruption to the household. The report included photos which included both visual and thermal images, which showed very clearly where our heat loss was occuring and showed that we did not in fact need our windows replaced, only one door needed replacing, and our walls did not need insulating. We replaced the door and with our attic insulation we have definitely improved the warmth in our house more than I thought possible and we have saved thousands of euros. The report showed heat loss in places I would never have considered as problem areas and has given us the guidance we need while improving our home.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Snughome to anyone who wants to improve the energy efficiency of their home. The cost may seem off putting but is definitely worth it as it has genuinely saved us thousands"

"We were living in a very cold house for over 6 years, heating on constantly, filling oil tank every 5-6 weeks costing a bomb. We then heard about snughome and their services and asked
them would they inspect our home. They called to house at time arranged and proceeded with job in task, no inconvenience called at all. Agreed to get back with results a.s.a.p. and they
did. Result was our home had next to no insulation at all and heat was going out the walls. "Result" Had necessary work done to insulate our home'. Outcome, heating required to heat house now max 4-5 hours a day as opposed to continuous. We now have a "Snughome", massively reduced heating oil bills. We can now live in comfort and save money and the environment".

"We had a leak in our kitchen under a timeled cement floor and could not figure out where the water was coming from, a friend recommende we contact Snughome as they had the technology to do so, a high end thermal imaging camera and could locate the leak for us, We called Dan and left a message for him to contact us. The call was returned and within a day he brought the system to us. We found Snughome to be very efficient and competitive on price, all aspects of the search were explained in full, there was no mess to deal with, and we were given a full detailed comprehensive report with DVD post analysis.
We would highly recommend Snughome to anyone who has a leak they cant locate before digging up the whole floor area, or if you live in a cold draughty house, they have the sophisticated technology not found anywhere in Ireland (we did comprehensive searches for this) and are prompt in service and trustworthy not like our original plumber! I have recommended Snughome to lots of friends and family and clients who have all come back with positive feed back with regards to the various services".

"I contacted Snughome due to unacceptable heat loss from our house where we could not identify root cause. Snughome arrived as planned, completed thermal imaging as described and delivered a very professional graphical report on time. The report was an essential tool for us to properly insulate our house."
