What a great experience!
WOW, I got my compliance report within 2 days with an explanation of the important parts of the report and how it affects my new house. Since this report was registered, I submitted the Title 24 report and my plans with Sacramento County. No issues there. Paul also stated that they offer QII (Quality Insulation Inspection) that was needed right after the rough in stage stage. Lana came out and did an awesome job with the inspection and made a correction notice for the insulation company to return and fix part of the insulation. Had a very positive experience and would highly recommend Poppy Energy for your new house, ADU or addition.

The team outmatched my expectations
I contacted Poppy Energy on the recommendation of a previous client. After several issues with other HERS raters, I was a bit skeptical but working Poppy Energy changed my perspective. The team outmatched my expectations. The HVAC Unit for the building was inspected and Quality Insulation Inspection done within time and budget.
Christopher K., New Construction DeveloperSacramento, CA

I switched to Poppy Energy about three months ago and I must commend the outstanding staff and quality service I’ve received in such a short while for our projects. At Poppy Energy, every customer counts.

Maris S., Residential Home OwnerNew Castle, CA
Honest, transparent and professional!
The entire airflow system of my 30-year home was overhauled and needed to certify the job. Poppy energy had recently done the same for a friend so I contacted them. From the first conversation to final inspection, I love the fact that there was a system of adequate feedback every step of the way. Honest, transparent and professional!
Duke G., Home OwnerFair Oaks, CA
Kudos to a great team
I knew absolutely nothing about the process of getting a Title 24 report compliance report for my building addition, plus I am not so tech savvy but a phone call with Paul put my mind at rest. He was friendly, attentive and quick to explain the process to me. He was just a call away if I had any questions. My report was completed in a few days. Thank you Paul, you are the best! Kudos to a great team and a job done well and on time.
Janet J., Project ManagerRoseville, CA
Highly Impressed
Absolutely the best technical company I have ever experienced! I often do not give reviews but I am highly impressed. I had to reschedule the appointment on such a very short notice but the team was willing to oblige me and even tried to fit in to my schedule
Francis B., Residential Home OwnerRancho Cordova, CA
Made a New Friend
I’m amazed at how quick and smooth the whole process went. My AC was replaced and needed a quality inspection, so I placed a call. Lana showed up at our door about an hour later, discovered the challenge and had it fixed in no time. I enjoyed a great conversation and made a new friend. Poppy energy came highly recommended from a neighbor. I’ll do well to pass on the recommendation as well.
Loretta M., Home OwnerGold River, CA
Showed up within 2 hours
I just had my baby a few weeks back and then my AC unit picked the worst time to fail. After a full HVAC replacement, we needed a full duct test and refrigerant test. I’m especially thankful for the prompt response on a week day though it came in as an emergency. The technician showed up within 2 hours after and did the duct test and refrigerant check in about an hour. Thank you again Lana!
Jamie T., BuilderWest Sacramento, CA
Excellent value for your money
After incurring more financial costs from several retests, Poppy Energy came through and helped us achieve an energy-efficient building at a relatively affordable cost. Poppy energy helped to carry out a Blower’s door tests for one of the building projects I worked on recently. I look forward to working on more projects with them and I will definitely recommend them to others. You are sure to get excellent value for your money.
Reed C., Project ManagerEl Dorado, CA
Keep up the good work!
Paul from Poppy Energy came to do a routine maintenance check on the heat system and AC system of some service apartments. He not only did an excellent job but also recommended additional ways of extending the life of the HVAC equipment. This advice showed he had our best interest at heart. Keep up the good work!
Patricia H., Home OwnerFolsom, CA
Best HERS raters
They are thus far, the best HERS raters I’ve worked with on any building. After the HVAC was fully installed in the building, the HERS Rater by the name Lana did a thorough job checking through air leakages, improper insulation, energy efficiency and other criteria. The house is declared fit just in time for my parents to move in. A great deal of professionalism and courtesy displayed.
Collins O., BuilderCarmichael, CA
Game-changer
I’ve been a customer at Poppy Energy for 6 months now. It’s been quite difficult finding a good HVAC HERS and Duct testing company that I could always count on to deliver all the time. I want to say a huge thank you to the team at Poppy Energy, for being consistent, awesome, dedicated and extremely diligent at their craft. Your excellent and timely service is a game-changer
Sonia, P., Project ManagerLoomis, CA
Efficient, Very Thorough and Professional
I moved in newly to California about half a year back and starting a new building project that required that I carried out a Quality Insulation inspection. I found Poppy Energy as a certified HERS Rater on the CalCert website and booked an appointment with them. They were efficient, very thorough and professional. I will not be using any other HERS Rater any time soon and I will definitely tell my developer friends about Poppy Energy
John M., Home OwnerAntelope, CA
Very Good at What They Do
I’ve used Poppy Energy for my Duct test to my HERS testing to fix an air flow leakage challenge once I found out it was much colder in the attic than inside my home when the AC was on. I must say without bias that they are very good at what they do. The company is great and its employees are always courteous, always willing to help. Thus far, I’ve not had any challenge with their work. Their response time is great and the pricing quite fair. The technicians always take time to troubleshoot, and also explain the cause of repair if need be. I’ll highly recommend them.
Timothy R., BuilderRocklin, CA
Huge Thumbs Up For Poppy Energy
The personnel who came in to carry out the pressure test on my new forced air heating system duly observed strict Covid protocols. He was very efficient, has a sound knowledge of his craft and also very reassuring. A very huge thumb up for Poppy Energy! You are the best.
Steve K., First Home BuilderPenryn, CA
Definitely Recommend
HERS Testing, Title 24 compliance, & CF1R reports all sound like a foreign language to me but this group seems to know their stuff. They don’t seem to mind taking their time to walk you through things and they always seemed to be available when I needed them. I would definitely recommend them without question. Thanks for your help guys. I appreciate it.
Cleveland R., HomeownerAuburn, CA
A++++ service
I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from them. They made sure to complete the duct leakage test quickly and what seemed to be very efficient. I feel a lot better knowing that everything has been brought up to the level it should be. When it comes to peace of mind the cost is priceless. A++++ service.
Robert S., First Home BuilderLoomis, CA
Big Thanks From Me
When dealing with new construction make sure everything is being inspected properly. When I called Poppy Energy, they made sure I understood all the details of what needed to be tested and make sure everything in the house was compliant. I can’t imagine the nightmares that could have happened if they weren’t there to make sure my house was safe, sound, and working properly. They get a big thanks from me.
Kyle B., Home BuyerFolsom, CA
Save You Money in the Long Run
When you buy an older house there are always unforeseen problems. Having this 1960’s ranch house had a lot more issues than you would think for a house that isn’t nearly as old as my grandparents. But when you fall in love with the house you gotta be careful of all the little missteps. Having a quality insulation inspection is paramount to find out where and how warm air or cool air are leaking out of your house. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment sooner than later. It will save you more money in the long run.

About Lake Tahoe, CA

History of Lake Tahoe, CA

Introduction

Tahoe, California is a beautiful place full of history and fun. There are plenty of things to do and see, from casinos to nature trails. This post will tell you about some of the rich history behind Lake Tahoe, including how it was formed and some highlights from different eras in its past.

A long, long time ago ...

Did you know that Lake Tahoe is a young town? We’re not talking about the actual city of South Lake Tahoe, California — more specifically known as Stateline. We mean the entire area: Lake Tahoe itself and its surrounding communities like South Lake Tahoe and Meyers, California.

But despite being a relatively new town (in comparison to other places in California), Lake Tahoe has been inhabited for thousands of years. The Washoe people were hunter-gatherers who lived in the region for millennia before European Americans arrived; they established permanent settlements along the shores of Lake Tahoe starting around AD 1000.

Tahoe is a pretty young town.

What's unique about Tahoe is that it's a resort town, but it was founded as a mining town. Mining played a huge role in the early growth of Lake Tahoe and its economy until it collapsed in the late 1800s.

In 1945, Harvey Gross opened the first casino on Lake Tahoe, kicking off an era of tourism that continues today.

Another boom period hits the lake.

Another boom period hit Lake Tahoe in the 1950's and 60's, this time in the form of increased tourism. Began by construction of resorts and casinos, which led to a huge influx of tourists. The first roads were built which allowed access from all areas around Lake Tahoe. Hiking trails were developed that still exist today and are used by many visitors every year.

Gambling comes to Tahoe.

Gambling came to Tahoe in 1940, when the first casinos opened on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe. Prior to that time, gambling was illegal in California and Reno, NV. While Las Vegas may have become famous as a gambling destination later on, it also has been home to legal gambling longer than its much more well-known counterpart across the lake.

Today, Tahoe is a little bit of everything.

You’ll find that you can enjoy a little bit of everything at Lake Tahoe. Whether you want to learn about its rich history, see some beautiful scenery or just have a good time with friends and family, there is so much to do here. The area offers many different activities for all ages and interests: from skiing in the winter to hiking in the summer; from boating on the water during any season to golfing on one of many breathtaking courses. There is no shortage of things for visitors to do here!

With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Lake Tahoe is an ideal vacation destination. It's home to the region's best ski resorts and hiking trails, as well as great opportunities for boating, swimming and water sportsThe first European Americans arrived in the 1840s. They were fur trappers who traveled along the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe, but didn’t stay longThe 1960s saw the construction of Interstate 80, which brought more tourists to the area and made it easier for them to travel there. The 1970s marked another boom period, due largely to the opening of Heavenly Ski Resort in 1972...

Lake Tahoe, CA is a great place to visit and learn some history while you're there.

Lake Tahoe is known for its beautiful views of nature and wildlife so be sure to bring your camera so that you can capture memorable photos during your trip!

The city of Las Vegas, NV was founded in 1905, and it was not until 1931 that gambling was legalized there. This move paved the way for casinos to be built and help make Las Vegas one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
