Choosing Geothermal Installation Contractor Owen Sound

As a follow-up to our recent post, “Where to Start with your Heat Pump Installation Project,” we thought a post specific to homeowners in the Owen Sound, Ontario region would help in the quest to find the right Heat Pump or Geothermal installation contractor. We titled this post Choosing Geothermal Installation Contractor Owen Sound.

Choosing Geothermal Installation Contractor

When it comes time to choose a contractor to install a new heat pump in your home in the Owen Sound area, the internet can be a great resource. By looking for reviews or reading contractor websites, you can get a good idea of the quality of work that a particular contractor can provide. When you’ve landed on a contractor you’d like to contact, It’s important to ask the contractor questions about their experience and qualifications to ensure that they are the right fit for your project. Some questions you may want to ask include:

 

  • How long have you been installing heat pumps?
  • What type of training and certifications do you have in installing heat pumps?
  • What is your experience with this specific make and model of heat pump?
  • Can you provide me with references from past clients?
  • Do you have liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance?
  • Are you part of any national or provincial HVAC associations?

 

By taking the time to ask the contractor(s) these questions, their answers should give you an indication of their level of confidence and technical expertise in the type of work you are looking to do. If you have any doubts about finding the right questions, or the answers you receive, contact Evolved Thermal Energy and they’ll offer a second opinion.

Owen Sound is a city in the Canadian province of Ontario. It is located at the mouth of the Sydenham River on Georgian Bay. Owen Sound is the seat of Grey County and has a population of 21,362 as of 2016. Owen Sound was founded in 1851 by John Scroggie, who named it after his superior, Edward William Owen. The settlement was later incorporated as a town in 1857 and then as a city in 1890. In its early days, Owen Sound served as an important transportation hub for the region, with connections to both railways and shipping routes. Today, it remains an important industrial center and commercial port. Owen Sound experiences four distinct seasons, with warm summers and cold winters. The average annual temperature is 5 degrees Celsius (41 degrees Fahrenheit), with January being the coldest month (-10 degrees Celsius / 14 degrees Fahrenheit) and July being the warmest month (21 degrees Celsius / 70 degrees Fahrenheit).

Greener Homes Program Switching to Heat Pump In Ontario

The Greener Homes program offers rebates up to $5600 and 0% interest loans up to $40,000 to help in your transition to a Geothermal Heat Pump. The program requires an Energuide energy audits process that will assess the building and offer recommendations to reduce energy demand. We recommend you make any envelope improvements first to reduce the building loads before transitioning to a heat pump. However, knowing that you plan to install a heat pump, homeowners should have a complete Heat Loss / Gain calculation done on their home first so you can get a complete picture. This process can optimize the heat pump selection to ensure the most cost-effective approach.
