Putting geothermal energy to work
Geothermal Energy is Good for Your Business
For efficiency and reliability, choose a ground-source heat pump (GSHP) system for your commercial building. GSHPs (also called geothermal or geoexchange) work very much like water source heat pumps except they exchange heat with the earth. That means no requirement for a boiler or cooling tower. Thanks to near-constant underground temperatures, GSHPs aren’t subject to efficiency fluctuations that air source systems experience. They maintain their efficiencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Ground-Source Heat Pumps come in many different configurations to suit your building needs. The underground piping can be hidden under landscaping, parking lots, beneath the building, or even in a pond. Achieve designs, installs and services our GSHP Systems. Each of our commercial projects involves custom design of the ground heat exchanger to meet your needs and property configuration. Call us and we can tell you more.
Certified Design and Installation
Achieve works hard to remain a leader in our field. This includes striving for the highest level of training and certification for our people. We work with both the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) and the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) who provide training and certification in our industry. We also make use of manufacturer training from WaterFurnace for installation, operation and troubleshooting relative to their equipment.
We maintain the following nationally recognized certifications:
IGSHPA Accredited Installer (AI)
Our designers and key installation staff are Accredited Installers. This provides understanding of field installation techniques and supports quality control.
AEE/IGSHPA Certified GeoExchange Desiger (CGD)
The CGD is only achieved after years of experience on commercial-scale projects, advanced training and completion of a challenging qualification exam. Our Principal and Lead Designer are one of only four CGDs in Massachusetts. Our CGD-status provides certified design of all commercial and residential GSHP installations.
IGSHPA Certified Geothermal Inspector (CGI)
Like the CGD, the CGI is only achieved after years of experience on commercial-scale projects, advanced training and completion of a challenging qualification exam. Achieve has the only two CGIs in Massachusetts on our Staff. A CGI is qualified to monitor and inspect all aspects of complex GSHP installations. Achieve’s CGI’s can work as owner’s representatives and consultants to municipal code inspectors.
