Lehigh Valley's Geothermal Contractor
We pride ourselves on quality and satisfied customers. With countless successful geothermal installations under our belt we have emerged as Lehigh Valley’s leader in Geothermal.Call (610) 760-9242
We would like to thank you first for visiting our website. We are a full service HVAC/Refrigeration company primarily dedicated to installing and servicing geothermal heating and cooling systems. We are an authorized Water Furnace dealer. We are a factory trained and authorized dealer of the new water Furnace 7 Series Equipment. They offer the highest efficeincy and the best reliability we have seen. They are capable of forced air heating and cooling, domestic hot water heating, pool heating and are an excellent choice for radiant heating, they are also available in a reversible chiller application.
We have installed countless geothermal systems throughout the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas with great success. We have installed many new construction systems as well as replaced many existing fossil fuel systems. Our system sizing is based on a precise load calculation software program, not by “rule of thumb” sizing that mostly always results in an oversized system and decreases performance and comfort. We have a close relationship with our driller which results in excellent communication and a smoother installation. Geothermal loops can consist of vertical drilling, horizontal looping, or a pond loop can be installed if conditions are acceptable. An open loop type system can also be used but requires a return well and a constant pressure type well pump for optimal performance.
Choosing a contractor
Choosing a contractor for your geothermal installation requires a contractor with expertise and knowledge of loop design, equipment, and ability to accurately perform load calculations. Failure to choose an experienced geothermal installer almost always results in in problems left on the homeowner.
Cost of Geothermal
Typical operating costs of a geothermal system will vary depending on geographic location, r-value of home. A general rule of thumb is 50%-60% less than a conventional system. If we provide you an estimate it will be accompanied by a energy audit which will give you a close operating cost.
New DX Systems
EM Mechanical and our driller will soon be going to Florida to train with factory engineers in direct exchange geothermal or (DX). DX requires signifigantly less drilling, no flow centers, freeze potentials, coaxial heat exchangers, and boasts 20-30% higher efficeincy over water based looping systems. Stay tuned for more updates.
Homes For Our Troops – SPC Robert J. Kislow III
EM Mechanical was part of the Build Brigade to help renovate Robert Kislow’s home. A new state of the art geothermal heating and cooling system was installed July 22nd, 23rd & 24th
Army SPC Robert J. Kislow III was only two months into his first deployment in June 2005, when he was shot five times causing multiple injuries including TBI and an injury so severe that it required the amputation of his right leg. While on combat patrols in Afghanistan near the Pakistan border, his team was on a mission to search out aggressive Taliban forces in the mountainous area. Attacked by a large group of Taliban fighters, SPC Kislow received five gunshots to his body causing multiple serious injuries…his bullet proof chest may very well have saved his life as the 2 shots that hit it did no damage, however his Kevlar helmet was punctured by a bullet leaving Rob with TBI. SPC Kislow, though injured, took over the forward marksman position for a wounded teammate and continued fighting until a medic arrived. He was carried to the top of the mountain where he was airlifted to the nearest Forward Operating Base. Later airlifted to Landstuhl, Germany and finally to Walter Reed Rob spent 29 months enduring surgeries and therapies while recuperating. His treatments continue through his local VA Hospital.
