Considering doing a geothermal project?

We believe these drillers and contractors may be available to help you with a geothermal installation in the Philadelphia area. We provide their names and contact information for informational purposes only. We do not endorse any particular company and remind you to do your own vetting. If you come across additional vendors please send us their information for inclusion on this page. 

We recommend doing your project with an IGSHPA accredited installer. You can verify status by using the https://igshpa.org/ Business Directory. Note that many installers will travel from outside the Philadelphia area for residential installation (more so for commercial installations).

Some notes when using the IGSHPA Business Directory.

  • Search the Certified Individual Directory.
  • Search by selecting: Accredited Installer –yes
  • IGSHPA appears to be working on the new directory search capability and it doesn’t include contact information in the search results. Also try their old site:
