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.

REDMOND HVAC

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.

Went very well. I was extremely impressed by how thorough and knowledgeable Mike is. He spent an hour and a half at my house to walk through the existing system and educated me on how a geothermal system works and what needs to be done in order to convert to geothermal. I received the estimate within a week of the consultation. In the end, the price is above what I had budgeted for so I'll wait. But when I'm ready, Briggs is who I'll call.

Geothermal USA
1.0
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.

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.
