Quantum Quote: “The biggest benefit with geothermal is that it’s always the same climate down below.” – Mike Seidenberg

Heat pumps are replacing traditional fossil fuel heating. With efficiencies of 200-500%, not only are heat pumps more cost-effective, safer and healthier than fossil fuel heating – but, instead of needing a boiler or furnace, plus an air conditioner, plus an air filtration system – you get everything “all in one”. 

Air source heat pumps cost less upfront. But ground source – or geothermal – heat pumps are less expensive to operate and can provide a better long term value.

Air source heat pumps are outside and are exposed to the weather, so they wear down faster than the protected indoor & underground geothermal equipment.

And, with geothermal, you can reuse the piping if the rest of the system wears out, so you don’t have to replace the entire system.

More people are living life in more comfortable homes with the reduced monthly expenses that geothermal brings. Do you want to invest now, so that you can save later? The world is moving towards clean, healthy, sustainable heating, cooling and hot water. Will you do the same? 

Mike Seidenberg is the Owner of Eco Energy of N.Y. LLC. He makes homeowner’s goals come true with heat pumps , but also does traditional furnaces and small commercial accounts.

His journey with geothermal started in 2007 when he learned everything he could about geothermal, went back to his boss and was told that it was a bad idea. He quit his job, started his own company, and has been installing heat pumps ever since.

SuperNova #1. Never take advice. Find out the information you need. Make your own decisions based on the information that you’ve gathered. Don’t listen to anybody because they’re only going to tell you what they want you to think.

SuperNova #2. Soon-to-be retirees know that they are only taxed on what you take out of your retirement funds. They are preparing themselves by investing in geothermal so that their annual heating, cooling, and hot water expenses are less when they retire. 

SuperNova #3. Take the time to size things correctly. It really matters. Nobody ever yells at you for taking the time to do things correctly. Take time to do it right.

Worst Career Moment: “It was my first job, a Saturday night before Mothers’ Day. I took the Sunday off, and I came back on Monday, and a customer had used my excavator to backfill the trenches for me trying to be helpful. It had rained the night before so the pipe had floated up. He just shoved all the dirt in, kinked the piping, and I spent the next week digging up four tons of geothermal pipe loop in the same trenches.” – Mike Seidenberg

Aha! Moment: “That was when my boss told me ‘this was stupid, it won’t work’.” – Mike Seidenberg
