After extensive research we chose Vertex Mechanical to install our first geothermal unit in the main house. Our house had 2 additions and was a heating and cooling nightmare for years. We had multiple companies give us bad ideas and high prices. The people at Vertex were different from the very beginning. Our aforementioned nightmare turned into a comfortable paradise. The entire house with all its additions is exactly the temperature it is set for, both summer and winter. Our utility bill fell to one third of what it had been for years.

Can One System Provide Both Space Heating And Cooling For My Home?
Yes. A GSHP (ground source heat pump) can be a combination heating/cooling and hot water heating system. You can change from one mode to another with a simple flick on you indoor thermostat. Using a desuperheater, some GSHPs can save you up to 50% on your water heating bill by preheating tank water.
How Much Space Does A GSHP Require?
Most of a GSHP installation is underground. Inside the house, the heat pump units are about the same size as a traditional heating and cooling unit.
How Long Will My GHSP System Last?
GHSPs are durable and highly reliable. The GSHP contains fewer mechanical components, and all components are either buried in the ground or located inside the home, which protects them from outside conditions. The underground pipe carries up to a 50 year warranty.
How Noisy Is The GSHP Unit?
GSHPs are very quiet, providing a pleasant environment inside and outside of the home. GSHPs have no noisy fan units to disturb outdoor activities on or near the patio.
What Are The Environmental Benefits Of GSHP Systems?
Currently installed systems are making a huge difference in our environment! The systems are eliminating more than three million tons of carbon dioxide and are the equivalent of taking 650,000 automobiles off the road. GSHP systems conserve energy and because they move heat that already exists rather than burning something to create heat, they reduce the amount of toxic emissions in the atmosphere. They use renewable energy from the sun and because the system doesn't rely on outside air, it keeps the air inside of buildings cleaner and free from pollens, outdoor pollutants, mold spores and other allergens. And most units are using environmentally safe R-410A refrigerants.
Will My Existing Ductwork Function With This System?
Yes, in most cases. Vertex technicians will be able to determine ductwork requirements and if any minor modifications are needed.
Can A GSHP System Be Added To My Fossil Fuel Furnace?
Yes. Called dual systems, they can easily be added to existing furnaces for those wishing to have a dual-fuel heating system. Dual-fuel systems use the GSHP system as the main heating source and a fossil fuel furnace as a supplement in extremely cold weather should additional heat be needed.
What Do S.E.E.R., A.F.U.E., And H.S.P.F. Mean?
S.E.E.R. stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rate. A.F.U.E. stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency and H.S.P.F. stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. These are the most commonly used terms to describe equipment efficiencies. The higher the number, the better.
