My squash plants would be better off this winter in an aquaponic or hydroponic greenhouse.

My garden work is winding down this month. The giant pumpkins are gaining the last pounds of the season. Kind of a lame size this year. Not going to hit 1500 pounds. Maybe not even 250 pounds. Ugh! I think that they experienced too much water stress when I was...

Our #1 commitment is to help you succeed

When it comes heating or cooling air or water, a heat pump is a wise choice. Harvesting the earth's natural energy to produce heat, or to remove heat is the cleanest, greenest, most cost effective way to go. The challenge is when you don't have all the information you need to realistically consider your options. Each heat pump installation is unique to your goals needs and your location. Many important factors need to be considered at the planning stage as fixing errors after an installation can be costly and time consuming. We can help you save time and money.

All questions are welcome. I understand that selecting the right equipment can be difficult and even stressful with so much information and so many choices available. Let me help you start, and complete, your heating or cooling project successfully.

My name is Marcus Miller, and I’m a heat pump professional with over 38 years of experience in heating and cooling with pool heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps and aquaculture heat pumps. I can help you choose the right equipment for your needs. You can talk to me directly or text me at 360 348 7574.
