Jeremy has been in the geothermal industry for 15 years.
He is a member of the Iowa Geothermal Association so I can learn from industry leaders and rub elbows with like-minded people. He enjoys networking with others, sharing and learning how to be better in the business. Another great benefit is the fact that when consumers search online for geothermal information the IGA site is at the top of the search and we all have an opportunity to get recognized as individuals/companies that are dedicated to helping consumers with their geothermal needs.
The company he works for, Enertech, first began in 1996, it was with one simple philosophy: People come first. Since that day, that’s exactly what they’ve been doing, and now manufacture great brands such as GeoComfort, Hydron Module, and TETCO. As a people-centric company, they believe in family values,loyalty beyond reason, assurance in quality craftsmanship, and making the world a better place. That’s the roadmap, carefully guiding every decision they make. In fact, it’s more than just what they believe; It’s simply who they are.
He trains and supports contractors in all aspects of their geothermal business, starting with project assessment, technical training, design training, and personal assistance along the way with all of the above topics and much more. He also goes out with them to assist with any situations that arise and are “over their head”. Once he is comfortable with their technical ability he begins to work on their sales skills and assist with the marketing of their business so they can offer quality geothermal installations to each community to which they provide service.
