After a brief look up on Whois on Network Solutions the owner of the
domain name of Enerlux Windows is Paul V#%%&$#. Paul V also possibly owns the company called Energy Smart who promote Enerlux windows in Nebraska.
After Googling (Paul V + windows) the nickname of pvondy85 or PVonDy85 appears and
seems oddly familiar. Then if you search these names here on Green Building Talk a pattern begins.
Currently Enerlux claims that he now carries the best window. However
back in 2009 he was a Serious dealer openly promoting the Serious brand.
However in his earlier posts as Enerlux, he had somehow conveniently
forgotten to mention this.
Here are two of his quotes:
"I work for Energy Smart Company in Omaha, Nebraska and we are a Serious
Windows dealer. We recently installed our first order for the 700
series. We have priced the windows versus competing brands such as
Pella, Andersen, and Marvin and it prices out competitively when
comparing similar frames (fiberglass). I am a big fan of the 900 series
because the marginal cost of upgrading from the 700 series to the 900
series is small but the marginal benefit is quite good. The 1100 series
is prohibitievely expensive. It prices out over double the cost of the
700 series, primarily due to its Xenon gas fill. Serious Windows use
krypton and xenon gas fills because they are heavier gases which prevent
conduction. If you ever need a quote for Series Windows give Energy Smart Company
a call at 402-505-5428".
"Serious Windows does offer a wide range of prices. The vinyl 501 series
outperforms nearly all other windows in energy efficiency with Center
of Glass R values up to 9 and is extremely competitively priced. IBACOS
did a study on all the different windows on the market and they found
that the 501 from Serious Windows is the best value on the market.
Below is the excerpt from the report:"
Then sometime before June 2011 there must have been a falling out with
Serious and he started with Sureview. In June 2011, Serious bought out
Omniglass which I believe because of his past relationship could not
retain a source of lineals. He could not buy the Fibertherm line of
windows either. My guess is that is where he went to either Comfortline
or Inline. Obviously he had a falling out with another supplier
Inline(not sure what order) which leaves him with the Comfortline system.
He then starts up Enerlux windows which he registers the domain name in
July 2011. Is this because of bad credit? Fourth window supplier in 3
years? Warranty issues?
People do not change lineal suppliers because they want to, they do it
because they have to. Inventory costs. Paul claims he has the best
window system now, if fourth times a charm.
Now Paul has a vendetta with all the companies that have did him harm
because it was not his fault, those bastards. Like I said, he is
misleading everyone here. Surely Comfortline will just be another notch
on his window supplier bedpost.
Enerlux mentions that he does not have NFRC certification but his
windows have a measly U.19 in triple. Simply put, you have nothing.
Until NFRC gives you the certification you
numbers are baseless. This is the only true fair comparison. He doesn't
do it for cost this and I will agree with. He will not do it probably because he
doesn't know when he has to move to the next supplier. The next best
How conveniently he disregards his nickname pvondy85 and reinvents himself a new alias Enerlux. Same message different brand.
Let us look at his list of top brands: Inline 6th, Accurate &
Fibertec 7th and his first love Serious does not make the list. His top
window list in his opinion, it isn't rocket science Paul. You think
people don't see through your smoke and mirrors. You are
untrustworthy person I have ever come across. Your tactics of product bashing, ankle biting, misrepresentation and falsehoods won't help
you sell a window. Most normal companies sell by educating on the
advantages, we now know your modus operandi.
Again I urge everyone to stay away and do not believe Enerlux, who knows how long he will stay in business.
What happens to the home owner who has a warranty issue with your former suppliers...let me guess.
Paul, this is my opinion based on the facts I have collected on this and other websites.
Let the excuses and lies begin!
