Beware of Incompetent Contractors!!


Today we were called to investigate some problems at a geothermal installation.  The customer told me that his energy bills are higher now than they were with his old system. He was told by his installer, who is no longer in business, that he would save 60% on his energy bills. Upon inspection of his system, we found terrible design and installation errors. Piping was leaking, piping design was incorrect causing the geothermal unit to short cycle, water piping was installed in an area subject to freezing, pressure relief valves omitted and many other deficiencies. It is unfortunate that after spending $60,000 on an energy-efficient system, the system is not working properly.

All the equipment is ClimateMaster, which is quality equipment. ClimateMaster should be more selective with whom they sell their equipment to.

The good news is that we can correct all these problems although at a cost.

If you have problems with your radiant or geothermal systems, give me a call and I will try to help you too.
