Since 1988, Bax Custom Homes has been providing high value homes in the greater St. Louis area. More than 200 Bax homes can be found throughout Whitmoor, The Bluffs, Lake St. Louis, Bear Creek, and western St. Louis County. Bax Custom Homes is a small volume builder completing about 10 custom homes a year, and the current subdivision being developed by Bax Custom Homes is Stone Castle in the St. Paul/O'Fallon, MO area. 

Jeff Bax, the owner of Bax Custom Homes, has installed GeoComfort systems in numerous homes over the years, and now he is installing one in his own personal home. The home will sit on a three-acre lot and will be over 3,500 square feet with a 3,000 square foot downstairs lower level. Jeff plans to use his personal home as a display for his development. 

The home will have a vertical loop field and Hoff Heating & A/C, Inc. is the installing geothermal contractor. Hoff Heating has been in business since 1983 and is a local, family-owned company. Through the years, they have grown to over 30 employees, many of whom have been on their team for 10 years or more. Jeff chose to partner with Hoff Heating in 2007 because of their convenient location. Hoff Heating’s quality work and excellent customer service has kept Jeff using them exclusively for all of his geothermal projects since then, so it was a natural choice to use them for this project.  

Because of their close business relationship, Jeff trusts Hoff Heating to help him select the best brand of equipment for each of his jobs, and it was no different when it came to his personal home. On their website, Hoff Heating explains why they continue to recommend GeoComfort to their loyal customers: “GeoComfort systems deliver the best in geothermal heating and cooling for every home – existing or new construction, large or small. GeoComfort delivers unsurpassed comfort, energy savings and environmental benefit with systems so quiet and so inexpensive to operate and maintain, you'll forget they are there.” 

Jeff chose to install geothermal in his home because he has seen their efficiency over his years as a builder. He is looking forward to years of efficiency and comfort, without the eyesore of outdoor equipment taking away from the beautiful exterior of the home. It was important to Jeff to get his installation done in 2016 so that he does not miss out on the US Federal Tax Credit set to expire at the end of the year. 

Thank you Jeff, for choosing GeoComfort for your home, and thank you Hoff Heating for your many years of partnership with Enertech.
