Specialized training is required to successfully install a geothermal heat pump, so it's important to hire a well-qualified contractor. An incorrect installation can keep your geothermal heat pump from realizing its maximum efficiency and can negate any savings. Worse, it may cause your unit to fail prematurely. Unlike many other companies, WaterFurnace only sells to licensed contractors that have attended our training.

Installations usually take around 2 days, depending on the complexity and size of your system. For longer projects, most contractors can set you up with temporary conditioning to keep you comfortable while the installation is being completed.

Final Payment and Service Agreement

Many dealers offer attractive financing options that can help you enjoy low monthly payments or $0 down same-as-cash. We also suggest talking with your contractor about a service agreement. While our systems often require less maintenance and are designed to last for years, they should be inspected periodically to ensure peak performance.
