Dandelion Partners with American Heating and Cooling
Expands Installation Capacity in the Greater Hudson Valley Region
Today Dandelion, a geothermal company that started at X, the research and development lab at Google’s parent company Alphabet, announces its newest installation partner: American Heating and Cooling. The partnership expands Dandelion’s installation capacity as it works to meet demand, which skyrocketed since the company launched its newest product, Dandelion Air, last month.
“American Heating and Cooling is a leading home HVAC provider in the Hudson Valley with 35 years of experience,” said Kathy Hannun, Dandelion’s CEO. “We are thrilled to partner with them in the region’s transition from fuel oil and propane heating to safe, convenient, clean geothermal heating and air conditioning.”
Dandelion and Poughkeepsie-based American Heating and Cooling will be offering end-to-end sales and installation services of Dandelion Home Geothermal Systems. The systems provide efficient heating, air conditioning, and hot water. The systems are low maintenance and fuel free, eliminating the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning and improving indoor air quality. Each installation includes a Dandelion Air heat pump, underground pipes to transfer heat with the earth, a buffer tank for generating geothermal hot water, a Nest Learning Thermostat, and a smart monitoring system.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Dandelion,” said Mike Bloch, co-owner of American Heating and Cooling, “Unlike most industries, heating and cooling technology has not changed very much over the past 35 years. Dandelion’s innovation and technology brings home heating and cooling into the 21st Century.”
Dandelion Home Geothermal Systems can be purchased upfront or with financing. Homeowners who pay cash and switch from fuel oil in Poughkeepsie are expected to save 60% on annual heating and cooling costs and enjoy a less than seven year payback on the system. Homeowners who finance the system are expected to save around 20% on annual heating and cooling costs, at no upfront cost.
Under the partnership, American Heating and Cooling will be responsible for the site survey, system design, installation, and long-term maintenance of Dandelion Home Geothermal Systems. Dandelion will provide sales, software for installation process and system design, and Dandelion Air heat pumps. Homeowners can see if their home is eligible at www.dandelionenergy.com.
