“We didn’t think we needed insulation but thought our windows were drafty, but a friend worked there and suggested an energy audit, we did. We thought it was a bit expensive, but it was a very thorough audit! The audit price included a portion that would credit us if we decided that they do any work for us. We thought we needed new windows in our fairly new home, as winters are cold and summers too warm in much of our house. We were SHOCKED at our energy audit, our windows were great! But we had huge areas of air flow from outside the house. They actually showed us on cameras the difference in temperatures on our walls and windows, and our windows are fine! They told us the builder did not properly construct our attic, as it had 2 walls missing. We had no walls from our front porch to our attic, 2 knee walls were missing, and add no insulation in those areas at all, and very little in our attic. The had an excellent appraisal with several options for us in different price ranges, and we could add whatever we wanted for them to do, or we could do some small items as well. We chose the more moderate option as it would leave minor things for us to do. They are very professional, did the work over 2 days, supervisors came by a couple of times a day to see the progress. Nice and friendly people. Suggested we get the cellulose insulation as it would help with the few silverfish living in our attic. Since we thought we would be out $50,000 for new windows, and our windows were fine, we were happy to pay them to correct our problems! They also came out after the work was completed for another energy audit to see what had improved for us. It was amazing! We had over a 27% decrease in airflow from the outside. He said if they get 18- 20% that’s excellent, so our home was in bad shape. Our utility bills are down about 1/3 of what they were before, and that has been wonderful on our budget!! Would very highly recommend this company!”

“I requested The Hayes Company to our home for an energy audit. Mike O’Connell, with his lively personality, visited our home not once but four times. After an initial inspection he gave us tasks to perform to make our home more energy efficient. His second visit was a follow-up to his recommendations. He noticed that we missed a few areas and wanted us to continue with his suggestions. Again he visited to see the results. He was pleased with our work. Looking at our dryer vent, he noticed that it wasn’t operating properly. He volunteered to bring a few sample vents for replacement. Thus, his fourth trip to our home corrected the dryer vent. What can I say about this company and Mike O’Connell – absolutely wonderful. Mike is so very professional, skilled and knowledgeable. He simply wants to help everyone. This company and Mike deserve more than a 5-star recommendation.”

“Very good, prompt, price was great – service even better.”



“The Hayes Company reps were professional and pleasant to work with. They were accommodating of my schedule and my need to work from home in the middle of the project. The cleaned up after themselves better than most contractors. While no soundproofing is perfect, the results of this project are certainly making a difference.”



“The work was completed on time and they were very professional in their work. I was very pleased with the work.”



“This is an AMAZING company because of their honesty and passion! I have had the pleasure of meeting both Mr. And Mrs. O’Connell and they are both easy to talk to and work with! This company is very knowledgeable on home efficiency. With their help, I have seen a drastic change in my energy cost and usage! I highly recommend them. Thank you!”

“My heat pump and air exchanger equipment are only two years old yet on really cold days our home temperature could drop as low as 54 degrees. WE WERE COLD!! I felt helpless as Service Experts technicians told me everything was in perfect shape. This year with the subzero temperatures I called Anthony’s Heating & Cooling and they immediately found two problems. A dispatcher suggested I get an Energy Audit from a leading expert in the field – Mike O’Connell of The Hayes Company. Service men and the dispatcher sang his praises to the skies!! Mike arrived and looked at all the ceiling vents, wall temperatures and went up into the attic. He found holes, no insulation WHATEVER, and equipment open to the cold air. He took off all the ceiling vents stating they were just blowing air into the walls. In just a few hours the temperature rose from 54 degrees to 64 – Wow, were we happy. He recommended new ceiling vents and attic floor insulation. He took it upon himself to buy the correct ceiling vents – no other insulation company I know would take the time and care to solve all of my problems at a very reasonable cost!! He and his crew arrived, put up new ceiling vents at the best angles for my comfort, and insulated the attic floor. Mike even brought the biggest cinnamon rolls I ever saw for all of us!! He suggested two other things I should have Anthony’s guys do on their 6 month inspection. I received so much more than excellent service from a man who must have more degrees than anyone in the MO/KS area – in addition to a caring, generous, kind heart!! Mike is a great guy and The Hayes Company is too. Chris and Gilbert, the installers, were great too!”

“The Hayes Company went over the top to make sure our house was taken care of. Mike came out and performed an energy house audit. Before they did any insulation work, my wife and I noticed a huge difference in the comfort level of our house. They were very professional putting in the insulation and diagnosing a frozen pipe problem. This is service you just do not receive very often. Highly recommended!”
