    Customer Testimonial

              Dear Ms. Oldenburg, A few weeks ago I had some work done by men who work for the company you run. When they first came to my house I was worried that too many workers were going to work on teh basement and attic. I was worried about the mess they were going to make. I must say that everyone did an excellent job on the upgrades, repairs and clean up. The two crews worked good together and their team work was excellent. Thank you, Vincent

              I would first like to thank Global Dwelling for all they have done. Jill was very helpful in setting up a grant for NYSERDA/EmPower for me. Akk my home weatherizing needs are met. John cam eto my house and explained everything to me as he set up the blower door test. He checked over everything in my house for any electrical and safety issues there might be which made me feel safer. Thank you John, GREAT JOB! The workers came a few weeks after, they were very helpful, educational/informative, and respectful of my home. They told me what they were doing as they were doing it. The workers were very respectful, they called every day they had an appoitment to come. There were very polite which is appreciated. They cleaned up after all installations everyday, never any mess. When Global Dwelling was finished, they explained everything to me and how energy efficient everything had become. They were didn't run out, they asked if I had any questions or needed anythign else. I hope this isn't too long but you guys truly deserve it. I am so warm, no ice in my tub this winter! Thank you!!!!

              I wish to commend Global Dwelling's work on my house. The assessment was thorough, and the cred carrying out directions to insulate and seal leaks was also thorough, despite some setbacks, like giant hornets' nests in one section. The crew was also helpful, courteous and pleasant, and Gamal is due for special praise in that department. Thank you all.

    Customer Testimonial

              My wife, Janet, and I are completely satisfied with the work performed on out home by the Global Dwelling team. Throughout their time with us, from the energy audit to the completion of their work, John and his crew were informative, efficient, thorough and friendly. It is unusual to see a group cooperate so well together with efficiency and good humor as well as respect for the customer and each other. They enthusiastically took the time to explain little details when we asked and displayed an excellent esprit de corps as well as pride in their workmanship. Already we are reaping the benefits of their efforts. Our home was cooler in the summer when the weather was hot outdoors and now is retaining heat this chilly Fall. We are not experiencing drafts nor have we needed to turn up the thermostat yet. We highly recommend Global Dwelling for future customers and thank the group for their excellent service. Sincerely, Jim

How Long Have We Been Improving Home Comfort for New Yorkers?

We opened our doors to Global Dwelling back in 2007, to provide our clients with our state-of-the-art solutions and energy saving services - designed to reduce home energy consumption, while improving home comfort. Our goals have been in tact since we started; to educate our customers on the energy flows of the building and to provide the most cost-effective opportunities for the home.

The company name, Global Dwelling, was conceived with a vision behind it, to encompass all the ideals of fair balance and incorporate the practical aspects of modern building science. The end result, reducing our carbon footprint and affecting changes in behavior that help bring us back into balance.

We’re different from our competitors because we give you control; we let you decide what you want done to your home. This way you can feel comfortable knowing what work is being done to your home.

In 2011, we were named a top ten EmPower New York Outstanding Contractor by the NYSERDA. The program recognizes contractors whose efforts have helped low-income households reduce use of electricity, improve the efficiency of their heating systems and increase the comfort of their homes. More than 100 contractors participated in the EmPower program, where each contractor was rated to receive scores on quality assurance, average completion time, work volume and overall commitment to the program.

At Global Dwelling, we want to improve the energy efficiency of every building we enter. We are not here to make up fancy numbers or use false information. We want to educate our customers and we want to improve the health and comfort of all of our clients’ homes!

We Put Our Energy into Saving You Energy

"...if someone is looking to get rich quick in this business I would try something else. If there wasn’t a bigger reason, the environment and connecting with people and the earth, I would have quit this business the first week. ... We developed a master plan based on diagnostic equipment, the existing home and embodied energy in it, peoples lifestyles and plans if any for the house, and we help developed a plan to have the biggest impact on reducing carbon footprint. This requires taking a critical look and realizing that changing or improving a home only makes sense if it’s long term. Otherwise, you’ve often used more embodied energy in fixing or changing something then you would have used leaving it as is. The most important thing to realize in all these changes and improvements renewable energies are all necessary going forward. But if we truly want to save energy we need to change our lifestyles. If you look at the current geopolitical situation and couple that with the environment you’ll realize that it’s a drop in the bucket. We need to live in balance with the earth, and we need to change and learn how to do that. We won’t be able to buy our way out of this."
