Recent Review: This was an incredible experience. From the beginning, Paul and Nate were professional and courteous. We had five different contractors come out and do an estimate for this project, with an investment this big we wanted to make sure we did it right. They were the only ones that did a formal heat load calculation on the house and they actually recommended a much smaller system than anybody else, therefore saving us thousands of dollars. They took a lot of time explaining the system and following up to be sure everything was correct. When they had a problem with a sub-contractor (the ones that removed the old furnace), Paul and his manager came out the same day and personally corrected everything. Going geothermal was a big step and a big investment. We wanted to be sure we went with a company we could trust, that knew what they were doing and that would take care of any problems. With Unique, they are putting their name and reputation on the line and it shows in their customer service. From the beginning to the end we were very happy. I would highly, highly recommend them to anyone.

Recent Review: Bottom line -- it went superbly well. I decided to contact Ed Harvey based on angielist reviews and my desire to break away from my current HVAC provider to a smaller, more customer-oriented firm. On my first call Ed answered the phone himself and we had a good discussion of what I wanted to do. He arranged for the well driller he works with (David Powell, president of Ed Powell Pump and Well Drilling) to come with him to look at my property a couple days later. I could tell from their interaction with each other that they enjoyed working with each other and trusted each other. Their quotes came in via email a few days later and I found them to be within my expectations. I accepted them. My wells had to be drilled on a slope and required a few days without rain to enable the well drilling rig to be brought in and get back out without getting stuck. Since we have had a wet spring that delayed the project for about a month. David Powell called me in early May and said he thought they could start the following Monday even though it was still a little damp. They did come promptly on that Monday and set about drilling 2 each 400 foot deep wells. The work went smoothly until they tried to drive their rig back off my property--they got stuck big time. Within an hour or so they had procured the services of the biggest tow truck I have ever seen in my life and it successfully dragged the rig back up the hill. All this was done with good humor and was kind of fun (for me) to watch. Ed Harvey had been watching from the side while the wells were being drilled and was there immediately to start installation of the heat pump when the well drilling was complete. He was on the job personally during most of the installation assuring that it was done to his standards. His crew was professional, competent, and courteous. They were in and out in a couple days and both his and David Powell's crews did an excellent job of leaving the job site clean and in good shape. So far my new geothermal system is performing excellently, but it is way too early to confirm energy saving value. That will take a full year or more. In the meantime I will be claiming my tax credit and PECO rebate which together will offset about 1/3 of the cost mentioned above. Overall I am a delighted customer of Ed Harvey, Inc and Ed Powell Pump and Well Drilling Inc.

Recent Review: Oliver arrived on time, provided everything they said they would. They really went above and beyond during the initial sizing/design phase to insure that they were installing the right equipment for my home. From the sales people to the schedulers to the installers, this was a great experience. Oliver was very responsive, adapted to change, very knowledgeable and coordinated the entire job from start to finish. Do not hesitate with this company.
Recent Review: CW Cook drilled a geothermal well for me in a very confined space (~20' x ~20' front yard with several obstacles) in Philadelphia. Because of the small working area, they drilled one deep well (~770 ft) instead of 2-3 standard depth wells. The CW Cook crew were excellent to work with and highly skilled in what they do. The entire project went smoothly and I would gladly recommend them, particularly for limited access drilling.
Recent Review: It went great! The company is one of the most responsive I've ever seen. They did quality work, showed up every day, and cared about me; that was important. They were always there to answer my questions via phone or emails. They explained all the issues and did a pre-installation survey of my home to size the system I'd need. They even showed up the day we had a 15" snow storm; doesn't get better than that!

JK Mechanical installed a WaterFurnace brand heat pump, a new gas hot water heater, and a "pre-heat" tank for the hot water heater. I got bids from 4 different contractors and they were my low bid. They handled every detail of the process -- including subcontracting the well drilling, upgrading my electrical panel, and removing my old oil tank. Then after the installation they provided the paper work for me to get a rebate from my electrical utility. The system has been in for two months now and is working beautifully. I've called the installer with minor questions about the system and he's been very responsive. I highly recommend this company and would use them in the future.

It is just excellent. We were very pleased with them for everything. I would use them again. About 5 people came out. It took a couple of weeks, and they left the area clean.

This system has been operating great for the past two years. I've waited on providing a review so that I could provide operating experience. I will get into more details in a bit but to summarize, the units have been saving us more money than estimated by Sinton and they have not had any issues keeping up with heating and cooling demands. Even in this bitterly cold 2019 winter the unit only needed to kick into 2nd stage on a couple of days and it never needed to go into emergency (resistive) heat. In 2016, I interviewed a number of geothermal contractors and Bill Sinton was by far the most knowledgeable. As a structural engineer, I had done a lot of research before beginning into the technical aspects of this project. As I spoke to Bill and his associate David Keating about what their company could do and what options I had, I could tell that they knew how to layout a proper HVAC system and I felt that that Bill was honest about the pit falls that could occur and he knew how to avoid them. Bill and David also took a holistic approach and provided me with information about how to maximize my home comfort and energy savings with improved insulation. They showed me how I could offset the added cost of the insulation by down sizing the heat pump size. After many detailed and patient discussions with me, Bill and David laid out a system that pulled my old oil furnace and associated chimney and used that chimney space to get the ducts from the basement to the attic and then to the second-floor rooms. Based upon their recommendations, I insulated the attic. I decided to go with the spray-foam contractor they suggested and now my attic is conditioned space and no longer get extremely cold or hot. Sinton also coordinated the very professional subcontractors which included the vertical well drilling and my underground tank removal. They were especially conscientious at making sure all the proper permits, testing, and inspections were done during the tank removal to ensure no oil contamination occurred and that I had the proper documentation to that effect. It was the attention to detail that was evident throughout the process. As my house did not have full duct work, Bill had to layout a new system and his son Matt Sinton did an excellent job installing the ducts along with his crew. The entire job was done professionally and looks excellent. In addition to installing the WaterFurnace geothermal system, they also installed a super-high efficiency electronic air filtration system and an AO-Smith heat pump hot water heater with a buffer tank to capture waste heat. Both of these systems have been working flawlessly. After two years of operational data I see that my yearly electrical usage now is about the same as it was before installing the geothermal unit because I am no longer relying on old inefficient a/c units. While my electrical usage is about the same, I am no longer burning about 1100 gallons of oil which is saving me approximately $2500-$3000 in 2019. In addition to the savings, the comfort of the house is much higher, the temperature remains uniform and is less dry in the winter; the filter helps control dust and allergens; there is plenty of hot water; and best of all, there is no more pinging of the baseboard heaters that used to drive my dog crazy at night. All told, I’ve been immensely pleased with the systems and the Sinton company. P.S. In case you are wondering, the cost and the hassle to remove a chimney stack even with needing to open up walls for access was not bad.

The process was very smooth from start to finish. Our rep advised us of the home energy review and HVAC inspection and why it was necessary. They even found some issues within the ductwork that went unnoticed for years! Once the review process was complete, Sinton provided a complete estimate of the expenses and processes required to convert. Sinton was the only provider willing o provide a guarantee of the comfort level of the home. The install went flawlessly, and we are very happy with the results. I never mind seeing the propane truck driving around the neighborhood any longer!

After doing lots of research on Geothermal systems and reading glowing reviews, we decided to go with Sinton, and it worked out just beautifully. Bill Sinton is not only the owner, but is totally involved in the whole installation all the way through, and his sons Jamie and Matt are fully trained in the entire process. This is such a pleasure after experiencing companies that send their "sell" man out to sell you and then you never see him again - and who knows who the actual workers are. No - Sinton is a total family process, with his intelligent young sons doing the entire job, accountably, neatly, and with integrity. But most importantly for us, when Bill discovered that our existing heating system was lacking important return ducting, they showed us why our heat never felt right, and proposed a big job that was not a happy moment to hear about, but it was the RIGHT thing to do. Bill explained that finally our upstairs and downstairs would be the same level temperature - we didn't think that was possible. They basically redid the entire system, and we now finally have a house that feels uniformly warm and comfortable, and the benefit of being off fossil fuels!!! Also, they always returned our calls immediately, from Mallory (the daughter) in the office, to Bill, to his sons who were always available and let us know exactly what the schedule was and Stuck to It! We are so grateful to have found people who are smart enough to understand what is needed, skilled and responsible enough to do it properly, and nice enough to explain it all to us. We cannot give a high enough recommendation to Bill Sinton and his family business.

presentation was professional, work started and finished on time. I contacted them a few months later with a small issue they responded immediately came out and evaluated the system. they are upfront about not being the cheapest. the prices were reasonable. I had contacted a couple of other contractors, was not satisfied with information or the professionalism.
