Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

Why You Should Hire an HVAC Company with Complete Geothermal "Turn-Key" Installations

Why You Should Hire an HVAC Company with Complete Geothermal "Turn-Key" InstallationsUnfortunately geothermal heat pumps are not available for “off the shelf” purchase. There are many things to consider in the installation process.  After your initial inquiry, there will be at least one discussion about your project, followed by the design phase and finally the installation of your new system. HVAC companies offering “turn-key” installation are preferred for their expertise, efficiency and ability to manage each phase of your project from the initial consultation through regular maintenance post-installation. 

Imagine the hassle of researching the required licenses and permits needed or interviewing subcontractors for drilling, trenching or milling custom ductwork. Or the frustration of having your project delayed due to not having the necessary equipment or hiring an installer who is not familiar with your geothermal heat pump design. HVAC companies offering complete “turn-key” installation services can save you precious time and energy.  Hiring an HVAC company with complete geothermal “turn-key” installations means less stress for you.

They can:

  • Keep project costs down.
  • Manage the project from start to finish.
  • Control the project schedule to prevent delays.
  • Offer quality training and service.

Primarily you want to choose a company certified with the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) and the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) boards to ensure they are industry experts. You will also want to hire a company familiar with the climate and terrain in northwest Arkansas. A complete “turn-key” ground source heat pump contractor should provide design engineering, drilling capabilities, trenching and installation of the ground exchange loop, plus complete installation of the air delivery system and equipment.
