LAKELAND, Fla. — Earthlinked Technologies Inc. welcomed dealers from across the U.S. and Australia to its annual dealer conference Feb. 23-26 in Lakeland, Florida. The conference offered in-depth training opportunities, overviews of new products and support tools, and more.

Jeffery Miller, president and CEO of Earthlinked, welcomed dealers by announcing the launch of the Prime Series.

“We took our best geothermal solution and made it better.” Miller said. ­­The Prime Series balances power, efficiency, and style while also adding intelligence. The unit is smaller, ultra-quiet, and features the new Earthlinked Diagnostic and Monitoring system (EDM).

Roshan Revankar, manager of the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA), joined Earthlinked in revealing new ANSI/CSA C448 Series-16 standards now recognize DX technology.

“Earthlinked is certainly a pioneer of DX, and the efforts put forth by their technical team to constantly improve their products are commendable,” said Revankar. “Presenting at the Earthlinked conference and answering questions from the dealers was an invaluable opportunity, as we all share a common goal as members of the ground-source heat pump industry to advance our members’ business. IGSHPA is overwhelmed with the support given by Earthlinked Technologies Inc.”

The conference commenced with an award ceremony focused on dealer recognition. Lawrence Air Systems, Seekonk, Massachusetts; HalCo Plumbing and Heating, Phelps, New York; Buschur’s Refrigeration Heating and Cooling, Saint Henry, Ohio; Roberts’ Service Plumbing & Heating Co. Inc., Niles, Michigan; and Australian Geothermal Solutions, Melbourne, Australia, all received the Earthlinked Elite Dealer Award of Excellence for their performance during 2015.

“Receiving recognition for anything is always a good ego boost, but with Earthlinked, it is so much more. They’re extremely interested in taking care of the end user — the customer. As a contractor, that helps me a lot,” said Scott Roberts, owner, Roberts Service Plumbing & Heating Co. Inc. “They’ve been really, really good to work with, and this award is a product of our partnership and the quality of not only the relationship, but the Earthlinked brand.”

Buschur’s Refrigeration was also honored with the President’s Award for top sales during the 2015 fiscal year. The President’s Award is awarded to the top dealer in the Elite Dealer Network that displays unmatched overall sales from an individual dealer during a fiscal year with the Earthlinked brand. The final award was presented to Rich Rohall, area manager for the Northeastern U.S., for top sales in his managed territory.
