North American Geothermal
Award 2018Super Service Award
Recent Review: North American GeoThermal and their team were stellar - professional, timely, reasonable cost, disciplined, courteous, and stuck with the agreed scope of the project. Their follow-up on all items of work was complete and well done. Their follow-up maintenance on the water furnace has been simple and very reasonable costs. This is THE geothermal company you want to choose for your property. The installation involved a vertical loop geothermal system for my 5000 sf home to replace an oil furnace. Since the work was done in 2015, I've had all of the projected cost savings expected. Now my home that was built in 1970's has uniform heat and cooling in all of the rooms throughout the year at a fraction of what the cost used to be. I highly recommend Richard and the North American GeoThermal team for your geothermal system.

Recent Review: Luke came out and gave me an estimate for Geothermal installing. I have not had it installed yet but plan to use him when the time is right. He was professional and seemed to know what he was doing. I have had several friends use him to install their geothermal and they highly recommend him. I had two estimates and his was about 10% cheaper, which is pretty significant considering the price of a geothermal.

Indoor Air Quality Medics
Award 2018Super Service Award
Recent Review: I have used IAQ for over 5 years for 3 different houses. The work has involved everything from regular maintenance of our HVAC systems - one of them being a Geothermal unit, to full on installation of in wall, room by room cooling heating units for a whole house. Every interaction with them has been positive, from the dispatchers to the technicians. Courteous, efficient, competent, straightforward, responsive, with shared priorities - like, not only a well functioning HVAC unit, but like their name says, they care about your family's Indoor Air Quality. I recommend them highly.

TriState Home Services
Award 2018Super Service Award
Recent Review: I called a few companies in the area when beginning research on a GeoThermal Heat Pump. We have used TriState many times over the years, and this experience was no different. Making the switch from a traditional gas furnace/Electric HVAC is no small job, but Bert Miskell walked us through every step of the process, answering all our questions, without trying to "sell" us on his product the way another company did. We chose TriState because we were confident in their experience with previous installations, and because of the thoughtful way our questions and concerns were answered. We are currently awaiting installation, but every step thus far (determining well location, removal of an old, nonfunctioning system, Miss Utility visits) have proceeded exactly as Bert outlined, and he remains accessible and promptly returns phone calls and emails. We are excited to be able to utilize the Federal Tax credits that expire this year, reducing our overall cost by nearly half, and putting expenses very close to a traditional gas system. The costs between all the companies we spoke with were very comparable.

Recent Review: So, this was a difficult service to rate, because in the end the service I called for wasn't actually done.  But I had to give them an all around conditional positive because they owned up to it and refunded the charge without a big fight.  I have a geothermal furnace; one night it had a trouble light. My regular guy - who had installed and serviced it for the past 10 years or so - wasn't answering his phone, so I called Nugent the next day (Friday).  Their website said they handled geothermals, the lady on the phone said they 'do them all the time'  and she would send her 'best geothermal guy.'  It was freezing and February, so I said yes please.  The guy was late -- he showed up around 7 pm (but remember, it was freezing, February, and he said they were swamped with calls) - and very polite.  Unfortunately, within about ten minutes it was clear that he wasn't a geothermal guy.  He said he hadn't worked on a geo in several years, and he didn't even have the right tools.  He was in fact surprised to learn that the company worked on geos (he was even surprised when I pointed out that the back of his shirt included the work 'geothermal').    So there wasn't much he could do except fiddle with wires for half an hour until I said I'd wait for my guy to call.   I'll give him props, he was willing to try, but it made me nervous.    He said he had to have a check before he left, so I wrote him one.  I felt really bad for him, it was a Friday night and a late call and he really was nice and this was not his fault -- he said he didn't even know he'd been sent out on a geothermal.  I called the company Monday and told them what happened.  They were apologetic and offered to send out another guy Tuesday - but I was a little leary of accepting (remember, this was supposed to be their 'best geo guy').   Eventually my guy called - he was out of town on a family emergency - and fixed the geo in, like, ten minutes.  It was a bad fuse. Bottom line:  although it took some phone tag over a period of days, I reached their service manager Walt and told him the problem.  They refunded my money within 6 weeks.  Everyone seemed really professional (if you overlook the fact that the best geo guy couldn't see that the fuse had melted to the board).  So I'd recommend them conditionally, just not for geos.

Hottle & Myers Inc
Recent Review: The work was done promptly, quickly and neatly. I was looking for heat pump when Larry Hottle suggested we compare the prices with a geothermal unit which is 4 times more efficient. With the gov. rebate on taxes I will receive at the end of this year the price was so close we went geothermal. Boy am I glad I did! The hottest day this summer the air coming out of the registers was 54 degrees! Larry and his sons were great. All three were courteous, well mannered and personable. Great family, I highly recommend these guys!

Recent Review: They were professional, and cleaned up very well after themselves. However, the design wasn’t well planned because it’s not big enough for our needs. I have had them out for a few service calls since, and I’ve always been satisfied with those.

There were a few problems that we had. Compared to the other one it's better. The geothermal system works fine. There were some landscaping things that they had to tear up in our yard and they didn't get it back to were we wanted it without a couple of visits. They didn't obey the schedule as they told us sometimes by several days. It was a complicated operation and I can understand that. We didn't object at the time, but it was a somewhat inconvenience. They were always available to talk. Sometimes they were ahead of schedule. I hope that we don't have to do this again, They would be our first choice.

We looked into a geothermal system after we decided to replace our oil-burning furnace in late 2016; gas is available on our street but because of our 100+ foot setback was expense to access. We looked into an air-sourced heat pumps but it has relatively high operating costs, especially in the winter. Geothermal looked too good to be true but did a ton of research and asked traditional HVAC companies their opinions (figured they’d have an incentive to layout the potential negatives) and the only downside we could find was the high installation cost. We contacted at least four companies and North American beat them all on cost and professionalism; plus geothermal is all they do and that was reflected in the knowledge and explanation of the process. We have had the system for more than a year and a half (two winters and coming up on our second summer) and it really is great! The promotional material lives up its hype: it is more comfortable, quieter, and cheaper to operate than a traditional HVAC. Because it is so efficient, you set your upper and lower temperatures limits and essentially walk away. North American’s post-purchase service has also been prompt and professional. A geothermal system is a big investment but think it is worth it from the perspective of recouping the upfront cost through efficiency, home value, and—most important—comfort.
