Frequently Asked Questions
How efficient is a geothermal system?A geothermal system is more than three times as efficient as the most efficient ordinary system. Because geothermal systems do not burn fossil fuels to make heat, they provide three to four units of energy for every one unit used to power the system.
Do geothermal systems require much maintenance?No. Geothermal systems are virtually maintenance free. When installed properly, the buried loop will last for generations. And the other half of the operation – the unit's fan, compressor and heat pump – is housed indoors, protected from harsh weather. Periodic checks and filter changes are the only required maintenance.
What does it take to become a Factory Authorized Dealer?To become Factory Authorized, our service technicians and installers must meet continuing training standards, and our sales team must meet criteria established by Carrier to have a greater understanding and knowledge of the products offered by us. We also must maintain a customer satisfaction index of a certain rating that is checked and updated by Carrier who surveys our customers. There are many requirements we must meet and upon doing that, Carrier is willing to go the extra step and provide us with more help in serving our customers and providing them with the best possible experience with Garber's and Carrier.
