Recent Review: Every aspect of this job met or exceeded my (high) expectations. Due to the size and complexity of the job, I spent a lot of time getting estimates and comparing vendors. Sean from AEC came out multiple times for site-visits, and answered all of my questions patiently and with real technical experience. He put everything in an extremely detailed quote, and then kept modifying it as we discussed a myriad of options and approaches. I had a number of very specific, and probably unique and nutty requests (like emergency generator hook-ups, preferences on attic duct routing, vent placements, efficiency, etc) that Sean was able to research and provide solutions for. He talked me out of a few of my stupid ideas too. Cost-wise, AEC was pretty consistent with the other 4 vendors I talked with, but I appreciated their willingness to talk through and then write down my options and cost/value trade-offs - so I awarded them the job. I felt like I knew exactly what I was getting into - both the pros and cons of every part of the design. The install crews showed up as scheduled each day. They were consistently neat, and cleaned up after themselves (tools, trash, and all) every day. Even the attic was cleaned up at the end of each day. There was a sr tech on site each day and they were all clearly very experienced. The ductwork guy, mechanical/plumbing guy, and electrician were incredibly focused on little details that ended up making a huge difference in the operation of the system. When surprised by unexpected 'existing conditions' they were agile enough to come up with quick and solid solutions without adding cost. Sean Jr and Sean Sr (owner) came out personally to deal with the harder issues, do final check-outs, and make sure I understood how the whole thing worked. I did have some repeated early system failures and a few bizarre side-effects from the zoning - including some crazy-loud air noise in a few rooms and a loud and irritating buzzing sound in the walls... but AEC came out repeatedly until they found and fixed all of the problems. Even the fixes were well thought out and carefully installed. The system has been running well for over a month now and seems very stable. Every part of the design (including the side-effects of some of the cost compromises) has played out as I was advised, which is pretty impressive really. As best I can tell during this not-too-cold winter the system is sized properly. In the end, the install was exactly as detailed in the quote. Everyone was professional and had both an engineering and an aesthetics mindset. I highly recommend these guys.

Recent Review: Redmond HVAC was professional and they performed high quality work. They were one of many contractors working on my new home, and they were by far the cleanest crew. I explored several geothermal installers before selecting Tim, and I very pleased with the work he did. I highly recommend Redmond HVAC for Geothermal installation.

Recent Review: Went very well. I was extremely impressed by how thorough and knowledgeable Mike is. He spent an hour and a half at my house to walk through the existing system and educated me on how a geothermal system works and what needs to be done in order to convert to geothermal.  I received the estimate within a week of the consultation.   In the end, the price is above what I had budgeted for so I'll wait.  But when I'm ready, Briggs is who I'll call.

Award 2018Super Service Award
Recent Review: Manny was very responsive and professional throughout the design and installation of our new geothermal system. I came with question after question about every aspect of the system and he was always quick, honest, and thorough with his replies. There were bits we disagreed about throughout the process (mostly due to my own ignorance), but he was always patient and walked me through the reasons behind his decisions. The new system looks very professional and seems to be running well. Only time will tell how much it will save vs. our old oil burning system! Price includes well drilling work which was performed by Skillings & sons.

FGeothermal USA
We hired Geothermal USA in 2009-10 to install a geothermal system in our home in Suburban Boston. The installation was difficult because our home was built in the 1950?s and all the air ducts needed retrofitting. During the install, they increased the price by $10,000 because the install was more difficult than they expected.  Hard to argue when your heating system has just been ripped out. They did a good job refinishing our basement after the install. At the end of the project, the owner of Geothermal USA reported that he had miscalculated and would need to drill a third well in order for the system to work properly.  This was done and he reported that the system was now working well. Despite promises that this would be energy-efficient, we had huge electrical bills for several years after the installation. I sent them a summary of my electrical bills and they did not respond. Finally, we paid two independent companies to evaluate our system. Both said that the wrong size heat pump had been installed. An undersized circuit breaker had been used and had actually melted.  We were told that we were lucky the house had not burned down. We hired a company to correct the installation. This contractor reported that the Geothermal USA install was the worst he has every seen. The ducts were not sized correctly, the wiring was dangerous, the wrong type of thermostats were used. We have now spent thousands of dollars trying to get this geothermal system corrected. I would not recommend retrofitting an older home with duct work for HVAC or a geothermal system. If you are considering a geothermal system in the Boston area, find another company.

AEnergySmart Alternatives LLC
We chose to go with EnergySmart Alternatives geothermal heating and cooling system when we built our home. The whole process was very smooth. Most importantly, when we had a question or a concern EnergySmart was accessible and responded in a very timely manner. Of the tens of e-mails that were exchanged, we never received a response in less than one day (mostly from Melanie herself) and the response was always thorough. If I asked 7 questions, I got 7 patient and thoughtful answers. EnergySmart Alternatives was transparent and accountable and it made all of the difference. Melanie even alerted us to a grant that was being offered and helped us to fill out all of the paperwork. Between the builder allowance for the heating/cooling system, the Federal Tax Exemption and the grant that we won with Melanie's help, we expect to make money on the system within 5 years. It's hard to confirm that last part from personal experience just yet, but I'll try to remember to update this review after we have one year of data. So far the temperature has dropped below freezing a few times and our house just sits at 70 degrees- no problem, no fuss. The system is so quiet, and there is no AC unit or tank to deal with or explosive gas to worry about. Also, my daughter will have a hard time trying to blame me for global warming when she is a teenager. Overall, we are thoroughly pleased with the system and with EnergySmart Alternatives. We definitely recommend them!
