September 7, 2017, Upstate New York – Today, Dandelion, a geothermal startup that recently graduated X, the research and development lab at Google’s parent company, announces the selection of its first installation partner, Aztech Geothermal. The companies will complete all of Dandelion’s 2017 installations.
Dandelion is making geothermal heating and cooling affordable by introducing a number of process and technology innovations, including analytics-based marketing, fixed system pricing, a low monthly payment option and an innovative drilling method. Dandelion’s business model is based on “taking care of everything,” including system design, and installation of home geothermal heating and cooling systems. The indoor portion of the installation will be subcontracted to regional installers, decentralizing this function and helping regional companies grow their business. Aztech Geothermal will be Dandelion’s first installer for its initial regions of the Capital Region and Hudson Valley.
“Aztech has installed geothermal for hundreds of homeowners in the area, many of which we’ve spoken to and who couldn’t be happier about their installations,” says James Quazi, CTO of Dandelion. “We’re thrilled to have them as our first installation partner.”
“The introduction of Dandelion will be a real boost for our business and the whole industry,” said John Ciovacco, President of Aztech Geothermal, “Their marketing capabilities, innovative business model and technology innovations will make the best heating and cooling system also the most affordable for homeowners. We are thrilled to be selected as the first regional installation partner.”
Under the partnership, Aztech Geothermal will be responsible for all home inspections, system designs and installation of the geothermal heat pumps to homeowners with ductwork.
