I have owned and operated a Heating & Air Conditioning Company since 1980 and have been installing Geothermal Systems since the beginning. In 1996 we purchased our first drill rig for the sole purpose of installing geothermal vertical loops. Since then we have installed 1,000’s of vertical loops for our projects and for other HVAC Contractors projects. We have installed loop systems for residential, commercial, government, and institutional projects from 2-ton capacity to 160 ton capacity.
I have been involved in Commercial Geothermal Loop designs by performing Thermal Conductivity Tests and working with Professional Engineers with the field header designs. I have also spent many weeks in the “ditches” installing and fusing the PE piping for the loop fields. I am responsible for the entire bid pricing and material purchasing to include the piping, fittings, grout, sand, and Valve Vaults.
