Watch out for the ads

Jean-Yves Mano, president of the consumer association Consumption Housing, Living Environment (CLCV), gave his advice to franceinfo on how to avoid potential energy saving scams. For example, he warns against advertising by telephone companies offering these works: “There are some minimum precautions that need to be taken. Firstly, do not rush to sign a quote after a solicitation, and soliciting energy savings over the phone is prohibited,” he remembers.

And the scams can be varied, the specialist reminds, on prices, materials used, quality of work… He implies “Big companies that subcontract, which subcontract, which subcontract to get the job done and you end up not having the quality”he says.

Caution is also needed at trade fairs and exhibitions specializing in the subject, where the practices of certain professionals can be questionable, says Jean-Yves Mano: “It’s a place of absolute scams in energy saving work. We let you sign offers of up to 30,000 euros without going to your house.”he says.

He recommends checking with one of France Rénov’s 450 agencies first. The National Housing Agency can call 08 08 800 700 to provide the list of artisans with the RGE label (Recognized Environment Guarantor).
