S&B Geothermal
Recent Review: .While I appreciate their efforts to build on the previous plumbers creation of piping on top of my hot water heater, I really regret they didn't use the two side plugs on the side of the water heater which specifically are labeled, "for heating connections only." The return lines to the in floor heat exchanger dump 72 degree water into the top of the hot water heater diluting the heat of the hot water system.  Use of the side connections to the hot water heater would've returned the 72 degree water to the BOTTOM of the hot water heater and resulted in better hot water efficiency and not disrupting the temp of the hot water; depending on if the system was engaged in heating the floor or idle.  Also it would've eliminated the problems I've had with my hot water recirc pump creating a straining noise on the recirc piping check valve (it makes the flow go backwards.).  I would've expected people with this much experience in this field to recognize and recommend a better course of action regarding the piping of this system.  After all this was my first time doing this and I was relying on the professionals who've turn many setup to advise me on the best way to pipe this system. Most infuriating, the guy who runs this company has not returned my calls asking for additional help (either under warranty or just charging me - I just need a supply and a return pipe rerouted to the side of the hot water heater).  So......NO POST INSTALLATION SERVICE IS AVAILABLE FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!! - at least not for me.  Finally, their original estimate of the just was about 850 bucks, but because they were unable to anticipate problems with the piping setup, they had to return twice which resulted in additional costs.   I PAID IT for the two additional trips  (1300 Bucks total) because I wanted to establish a relationship with this company should I need service on this system in the future.  What a waste of money.  If they had used the ports of the hot water heater intended for radiant system heating the job could've been covered for the original quote of $850.  Now I'll probably have to pay someone two to four hundred bucks to reroute piping!!!  Pretty disappointed in these guys and would never recommend using them especially since they never return their calls.

MASSMANN GEOTHERMAL & MECHANICAL LLC
Recent Review: Jason and his team were amazing!  Jason was on site for most of the install and available for the multitude of questions that I had before, during and after the project was completed.  His office staff was responsive when I had questions about the types of filters and how to get them.  Jason even made himself available when there were issues with the dual fuel meter and even went above and beyond to get those issues resolved even though they weren't his to solve.  I would highly recommend Massman Geothermal!

Recent Review: Pronto oversaw all aspects of the geothermal installlation, from removal of old gas system to subcontractor management.  They were real partners.  In particular, retrofitting to old construction is a long process of tuning and tweaking the HVAC system.  We had 6 months of tuning the system until all the kinks were worked out.  I am VERY happy with my choice of Pronto especially after hearing stories of geothermal installs where support evaporated after the main work was done.  They say they are in it for the long haul and that is what I saw.   In fact, twice they just didn't know the answer to a noise problem and coordinated with an external expert for  solutions -- and got the answer.  I really enjoy working with a company that takes leadership to fix the problems.    Persistent, patient, professional, and a real pleasure to work with.

Recent Review: The job was very well done. The technician showed up on time and got right to working on inspecting the HVAC system. After he finished his inspection he explained what he did then asked me if I had any questions about the system. Since I am new to taking care of a home, I had questions about the filter replacements. He showed me how to do it and even taught my 10 year old a thing or two about the system! Terrific service and I appreciate the advice too. I would definitely hire again!

South Metro Plumbing And Heating
Recent Review: South Metro originally installed my three unit GeoComfort Geothermal system in 2010 - Coupled it with my gas furnace so I have a nice backup if needed and can take advantage of lower electric rates through a peak / off-Peak program with Wright Hennepin's metering program. The system automatically hands off from electric to gas when Wright Hennepin has peak electric usage. One of the Geo units was not handing-off to gas when it should recently, so South Metro reprogrammed it, tested all the units and made sure everything was working properly, which it is. One of their techs - Corey Bauer (sp?) - has done some periodic maintenance work on my geothermal before and he did the repair this time. He is probably one of the more knowledgeable people I've encountered in these Geothermal systems and does really nice work. Very good at trouble shooting. South Metro's pricing is very reasonable and their people are very professional. Really enjoy working with them!

Hc Plumbing & Electric Inc
Recent Review: The first call brought out a repairman who really wasn’t well versed on the system. The gentlemen who gave out on the second call was outstanding. He diagnosed the problem immediately and fixed it.  This was done under new home warranty.  Final product was excellent. Company needs to be sure all technicians are appropriately trained.  They were right on time and I got an appointment quickly.

Air Mechanical Inc
Recent Review: We selected Air Mechanical after getting estimates from several other companies. Air Mechanical seemed to be the most thorough company that was willing to listen carefully to our needs and take unusual action necessary to retrofit a house built in 1909 with a 21st century heating system. We never regretted working with Air Mechanical. Everyone was extremely friendly, and always doing things exactly as discussed.

AUMR Heating & Cooling
They're very professional. They seemed very prepared for the initial consultation We were kind of put at ease that they were really doing the best work for us and other people that we talked to in the industry basically said that if we were going with UMR, it will be done right and that's not always the case with a lot of other companies out there. Everything went well and we're happy with the system. They were just very prepared. They came with pictures of our place so that they knew where they were going to drill or where they could drill and they pulled data from the county that they needed to make the decisions as far as what type of system would work out for us.

CUMR Heating & Cooling
With one season on propane in our country home setting the thermostat mostly in the 60's and still spending over $2000 annually, we were ready for something different. I wanted Geothermal info and UMR had a booth at the Carver Cty Fair. The woman manning the booth was very nice which offset her lack of specific knowledge of Geothermal, so no problem, I filled out an info card and waited for someone to call. Call never came. About a month later I found a wadded up business card in the washed shorts I wore that day and made out the number and "Joel" the salesperson. Called and stated my story and was given to Joel's voice mail. This call was never returned also. When I went to call a third time, my wife reminded me that if they can't return a potential "bird in the hand" call for a potential sale, how do you think it would go if they got the job? That was a good point. Or, must be so good that even in this crap economy they cannot keep up with the calls....

Terrible. System was a lemon and our back yard is still a mess after 6 years. Email me at gonnion@gmail.com if you'd like to see our new home heating/cooling bills. Inaccurate projections and lack of customer service.

I purchased an Angie's List Big Deal for this service and it worked out well. He was prompt when he arrived and did what they said they would do. It was a pretty small job. As far as we know the work turned out well. Everything seems to be working good after the work they have done. They came out within two weeks after I purchased the Big Deal.

CMASSMANN GEOTHERMAL & MECHANICAL LLC
Massmann was the low bidder, they got the work done on time and within budget but the system is not performing to spec.  Every time they come out to try to get the system to run within specification, they send a bill even though it should still be covered under warranty.  It is near impossible to get them to come out to do service work and they charge an arm and a leg for anything after the original install.  I would not recommend.
