” Yes, Kurt is the real deal. His quality product is very similar to QuietCool, but significantly better priced. Plus he uses a variable speed controller and motor which bring much more control that QuietCool. He has no middle man. He is a communicator and wants to articulate each step of the process. My experience with him shows an honest, direct businessman. He was straightforward with me regarding his Yelp reviews and what led to them. He went the extra mile on the installation and answers to post installation questions. The unit that he installed in my home is quiet and easy to use. Remember to keep the downstairs window(s) open so the cool air can get sucked into your home.
