I am a proud member of the Calcom energy family and they are the number one installer in my area. The only thing that I am not the most impressed with when it comes to them is their pricing. I had a question about their energy levels and they said that they are the best in the county because they are the only installers in their area with a 24/7 onsite service.
They also said that their energy meters are so accurate, you can’t screw them up. They did not say they were the best, but they are the best. Now that’s a statement worth keeping.
Calcom has a lot of good things to say about their installers. I was a bit skeptical about them initially because of the sticker price on their meters. It is true that a lot of installers charge the same price for energy as they do for a new installation. The biggest difference with Calcom is that they are also the only installer in their area that has a 247 onsite service. This is great because it is a reliable and affordable way to get energy-from-anywhere.
It may sound obvious, but Calcom’s installation is extremely reliable. The only reason I’m not a huge fan is because I don’t like seeing “one-man-one-vote” installs. The reason being that that’s not true. Every company has a different way of determining if their installer is qualified. This is why I believe Calcom should have their installer rate and review their installer over others.
Calcoms installation is done by a company called Calcom Energy, which is owned by Calcom Inc. This company is a subsidiary of Calcom Inc.
Calcoms installation is probably the easiest installation of any of the other installers on our list. The reason being that they only require one installer and their installer rates are not set by us. They rate the installer based on their qualifications, not the installers qualifications.
They run a program called Calcite that does all the work and installation and review their installer. Their software is fairly inexpensive, but it’s a lot of time consuming. You need to get your installer to work from home, so if you’re not on a budget for a few days, your installer is going to be a mess.
In the last two years we have had to deal with a few people that would call in and claim to be Calcom employees. The truth is we have worked with and hired a few Calcom employees but for the most part have never really been able to get a feel for what their qualifications actually are.
There are a few things Calcom does that are worth mentioning. One is in support of their product, which we have never used and never will. Another is in the support of our website. The truth is there have been a few times where our website has helped them with a customer service issue, but it usually just took them a couple of hours to figure it out.
The other big thing that Calcom does that is worth mentioning is their energy. They make a great product that actually has some energy to it. They don’t just sell it to people, they actually make the product that the Calcom people use. Because you can’t just buy a $10,000 power generator and say “Hey, I’m going to use it to power my website.” You have to actually buy the machine and then figure out how to use it.
