Black-Haak Heating Makes Top 5000 Fasted Growing Private Companies in America List!

"Dear Robert Haak,

Welcome to the most exclusive club in business! On behalf of all of us at Inc., I am delighted to inform you that Black-Haak Heating has earned the position of 3588 on the 2017 Inc. 5000.

Each year for 36 years, Inc. has recognized the fastest-growing private companies in America, and this year's set of winners places the bar very high indeed. Companies that made the list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2013. During a stretch when the economy grew just 6.7 percent, that's a result most businesses could only dream of.

As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Black-Haak Heating now shares a pedigree with Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, GoPro, Timberland, Clif Bar, Patagonia, Oracle, Box, Grubhub, and dozens of other alumni that have gone on to become household names. In addition to Black-Haak Heating, the class of 2017 includes such powerhouses as S'well, Halo Top Creamery, Bitly, and Orangetheory Fitness. In other words, you are in very good company.

Congratulations to you and your team. You should be proud of all Black-Haak Heating has achieved to date.

I hope to see you at the Inc. 5000 gala in Palm Desert, California, this October. You've earned the right to celebrate!"


Eric Schurenberg

Black-Haak Heating & Cooling, Geothermal Heating Story

Geothermal has been around for 60 to 70 years, and Black-Haak Heating and Cooling has been installing Geothermal Systems for over 15 years. A Geothermal System is the transfer of energy from the earth into your home, using no gas, fossil fuels, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or electricity (only to run the compressor). Geothermal heating/cooling is a refrigeration based process. To heat your home, heat is brought from the earth into your home. To cool your home, the refrigeration process is reversed, therefore taking the heat from your home and pushing it back to the earth. There is no need for a backup furnace because with Geothermal heating/cooling, you get 100% heating/cooling. These systems can be installed in any home, whether you live in the country or city. Geothermal heating/cooling is "green", so you can feel good about installing a system and still save money. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act allows for a 30% tax credit for a qualifying Geothermal System installed through 2016.

Black-Haak Heating Recognized for Outstanding Performance in 2014

Meeting(STEVENS POINT, WIS.- MAY 26,2015) - Homeowners looking to "go green" and save money on energy costs won't have to look very far to find one of the nation's top geothermal installers.

"We have some of the best dealers in the industry," said Smith. "They're committed to providing the ultimate comfort experience for the homeowner, and hold themselves to a higher standard than most. You won't find anyone better-equipped to provide a quality geothermal system, period."

Geothermal taps into Earth's heat to provide clean and sustainable energy for heating and cooling. Many property owners are turning to geothermal to reduce their carbon footprint while enjoying substantial savings in their heating and cooling costs. Black-Haak Heating offers the complete line of GeoComfort geothermal equipment for residential and commercial heating, cooling and hot water systems.
