REDMOND HVAC
5.0
Redmond HVAC was professional and they performed high quality work. They were one of many contractors working on my new home, and they were by far the cleanest crew. I explored several geothermal installers before selecting Tim, and I very pleased with the work he did. I highly recommend Redmond HVAC for Geothermal installation.

M J BRIGGS HVAC
1.0
I hired Briggs in 2018 to fix my malfunctioning geothermal system (which he did not install). The main problem was that it was not keeping up with heating and cooling demand. I asked if we should try to fix this system or maybe think about putting in a new system other than geothermal (so I gave Mike Briggs the choice). He assured me that he could fix the existing system and make it function better. I spent $30,000 to fix the system and another $2,500 to insulate the pipes (a company he recommended). I tried to hold back $10,000 to make sure it worked when it got cold, but Mike complained mightily. Paying him that money was one of the worst decisions I ever made. The system did no better at heating/cooling and the small tank corroded and leaked. He did fix that on his dime, just outside the warranty (more on this later). As we headed into winter last year, the main unit died. Granted this was not something that he installed. I was left with a small backup unit that would only heat the house to the mid 50s on cold days. Certainly not ideal! I called him multiple times to help fix it. He ignored my calls for some time, finally getting back to me saying he had high crew turnover and couldn't help. I kept checking in regularly, but he never got back to me all winter. We had to deal with these cold temps - including our young children. If we did not have a mild winter, I'm pretty sure the pipes would have froze. Finally, in MARCH, after my consistent outreach, his assistant got back to me and said "We don't geothermal work anymore." and suggested a firm with a bad reputation. I was left hung out to dry... As a bonus, early on I noticed my electric usage went up by 50% since he installed the unit. He had no explanation as to why and did not attempt to resolve it. This has cost me additional thousands of dollars. I called in another company who does geothermal work to take a look. Here is what they found: - The geo tank was designed for radiant heat, which I do not have. The tank installed could really only support the system calling for a water temp of 105. Well, given it needed to be higher because it was not radiant (120+) that put huge demands on the main unit, which is the reason it died. And probably partially explains the increased electric usage. - The reason the tank corroded (and it happened again, which I had to pay for myself), was because there was air in the line. A valve should have been installed to release the air. - The airhandler he installed was too big (and I probably spent too much as a result) given the number of outlets. - The pipes were not the right size. He did not install them, but should have known. I could spend $46K more to fix all of this, and it still wouldn't work right or go with a gas system. I'm doing the latter - $40K more I have to spend! This entire thing is still a nightmare. I have asked Mike for a refund and he has ignored me. Seems to me if he got out of the business he must of known it was not a strong area for him, so why have me spend all of that money to try to fix it? Why didn’t he suggest another type of system? And to ignore me the way he did leaving us stuck with marginal heating over the winter was a disgrace. Absolutely terrible service on top of an incorrect installation. Though he does not do geothermal work anymore, I’m not sure you’d want to use him for anything given how he has treated me.

Geothermal USA

We hired Geothermal USA in 2009-10 to install a geothermal system in our home in Suburban Boston. The installation was difficult because our home was built in the 1950?s and all the air ducts needed retrofitting. During the install, they increased the price by $10,000 because the install was more difficult than they expected. Hard to argue when your heating system has just been ripped out. They did a good job refinishing our basement after the install. At the end of the project, the owner of Geothermal USA reported that he had miscalculated and would need to drill a third well in order for the system to work properly. This was done and he reported that the system was now working well. Despite promises that this would be energy-efficient, we had huge electrical bills for several years after the installation. I sent them a summary of my electrical bills and they did not respond. Finally, we paid two independent companies to evaluate our system. Both said that the wrong size heat pump had been installed. An undersized circuit breaker had been used and had actually melted. We were told that we were lucky the house had not burned down. We hired a company to correct the installation. This contractor reported that the Geothermal USA install was the worst he has every seen. The ducts were not sized correctly, the wiring was dangerous, the wrong type of thermostats were used. We have now spent thousands of dollars trying to get this geothermal system corrected. I would not recommend retrofitting an older home with duct work for HVAC or a geothermal system. If you are considering a geothermal system in the Boston area, find another company.

Manny was very responsive and professional throughout the design and installation of our new geothermal system. I came with question after question about every aspect of the system and he was always quick, honest, and thorough with his replies. There were bits we disagreed about throughout the process (mostly due to my own ignorance), but he was always patient and walked me through the reasons behind his decisions. The new system looks very professional and seems to be running well. Only time will tell how much it will save vs. our old oil burning system! Price includes well drilling work which was performed by Skillings & sons.

We chose to go with EnergySmart Alternatives geothermal heating and cooling system when we built our home. The whole process was very smooth. Most importantly, when we had a question or a concern EnergySmart was accessible and responded in a very timely manner. Of the tens of e-mails that were exchanged, we never received a response in less than one day (mostly from Melanie herself) and the response was always thorough. If I asked 7 questions, I got 7 patient and thoughtful answers. EnergySmart Alternatives was transparent and accountable and it made all of the difference. Melanie even alerted us to a grant that was being offered and helped us to fill out all of the paperwork. Between the builder allowance for the heating/cooling system, the Federal Tax Exemption and the grant that we won with Melanie's help, we expect to make money on the system within 5 years. It's hard to confirm that last part from personal experience just yet, but I'll try to remember to update this review after we have one year of data. So far the temperature has dropped below freezing a few times and our house just sits at 70 degrees- no problem, no fuss. The system is so quiet, and there is no AC unit or tank to deal with or explosive gas to worry about. Also, my daughter will have a hard time trying to blame me for global warming when she is a teenager. Overall, we are thoroughly pleased with the system and with EnergySmart Alternatives. We definitely recommend them!

Everyone there was great. They were very clean, prompted, and detail oriented. They fixed what needed to be fixed, and came in under the quoted estimate. Thank you very much for a great job, and well done. We are hiring them in the future to install more electrical, and geothermal unit (once it gets installed).

Bill examined our existing systems and prepared three different options for upgrading to geothermal, an electric heat pump, or a hybrid heat pump and gas system. We were impressed by the energy efficient options and the price was competitive with other estimates.

This experience was a complete nightmare. They installed it wrong to begin with. The worker was contracted through Home Depot. He told me a lot of lies. The contracting company took the contractor’s side whenever there were issues even when I was disputing things plainly written in the contract. I was given options that did not agree with me or the contract and was forced to choose one that I was not happy with. I was told that this project would only take three months at the most. The project was not completed until seven months after they began which was twice the length of what was told to me originally. I was quoted an estimate before the contract was agreed upon. I decided to go through Home Depot for added security on the matter. When the contractor was made aware of this the price went up by twenty-two hundred dollars. I will never use this company again.

Sila was great. They sent someone out to my house within 24 hours (this was not dire because I had electric backup heat). They did not have the part I needed,so they temporarily restructured the plumbing to allow the system to run. A few days later, they came back with the part. Overall the pricing was a little expensive, but the service was great!

CoolAir Company Inc
5.0
Everything from start to finish has been great. First, I asked for quotes for a geothermal installation from Cool air company and three other companies. He was the cheapest and was the only one who told me i could use some existing equipment and save on cost. ( my air handlers could be upgraded to more modern refrigerant) I emailed Bill dozens of questions, which were answered promptly through , sometimes even at very late hours on weekends. Later, i changed my mind completely on the setup and asked for information on cold climate heat pumps. He was very patient even after doing all the work planning out my geothermal system. He emailed me cost comparisons on everything comparing 3 possibilities. After selecting a system , and planning a day, cool air company came on time and did an excellent job. Highly recommended.

After using a different contractor to move the humidistat and activating it, the device never turned on the humidifier. I purchased a new humidistat and called FAI to install. They investigated the system and found that the drain on the humidifier was not attached (Done by initial installer) so FAI and I agreed that it should be moved. (If the humidistat was working and the previous contractor missed this drain issue, the water probably would have dripped into the electronics and destroyed the geothermal system.) So FAI did a good job evaluating before attaching. It was an excellent job. The humidistat is still not active yet and I am waiting for their electrician to call so we can get it completed. I will report back when done.

His prices were competitive compared to other vendors. He was punctual and very knowledgeable. He was very patient and clear in explaining things to us. We ended up not purchasing his services, but we believe he would have done a fine job and we did speak to several references who gave him positive reviews.

We contacted EnergySmart after receiving an insanely high quote for geothermal installation from another firm. Melanie came out right away to see our home and was able to give us a very detailed and reasonable quote within 10 days. She brought together an extremely talented team of drillers, duct work installers, electricians and landscapers to complete our project which took about 7 weeks start to finish. Along the way we encountered several obstacles - like a 3 foot + deep foundation, big problems with existing electrical (they literally saved our home from a potential fire from the main breaker which was sizzling). Every time we hit an obstacle it was dealt with immediately and professionally. The heating system itself has been fantastic now that it is up and running. It provides comfortable and quiet heat to the whole house. We are very happy with all the decisions made along the way with where to run new duct work and how to fix the existing issues. Melanie provided regular and detailed updates every step of the way and everyone was very respectful of our home and our time. This was a large and expensive project and I could not be happier with how it went. EnergySmart are so capable and knowledgeable and if you are going to do a project of this size and scope those are the most important qualities you will need to find in a contractor.

Recent Review: Now that we've had the system for a full year I feel good about writing a review. I chose Atlantic because they did a major job for a friend and because interviews with their references seemed honest. One reference said it had taken a year to get his system working right, but he admitted to being a perfectionist and said he had 19 zones, including a pool and a heated driveway! Being retired, i was able to participate in the process almost every day. If I had to be somewhere else, I might have hired an owner's rep for a project this big, as there are decisions which have to be made while a bunch of guys are standing around waiting for an answer. Anyway, the Atlantic people were certainly competent and professional, as were their recommended subs. The only real issue was technical, involving communications between thermostats, an air handler and a pump: As we went into winter, we were unpredictably getting unheated air in three zones and it took our Atlantic rep many hours to get it right. That issue lasted about a month. Since December the system has worked perfectly and we are very satisfied.
