Sincere care for customers, installers, distributors, and employees is something Hydron Module’s entire leadership team embodies, starting with our CEO, Steve Smith, who has vast experience in the geothermal heat pump industry.
Steve was introduced to geothermal heat pumps in 1983 when he was the Director of Member Services for a southwestern Illinois electric cooperative. After learning more about geothermal heat pumps and seeing the benefits for both homeowners and the cooperative, he helped start and fully managed a geothermal distribution company owned by several electric cooperatives.
With a passion for customer service, Steve and his wife, Karen, started Enertech Inc., a geothermal heat pump distribution company in Greenville, IL. In 2007, Enertech started manufacturing its own geothermal heat pump brands including, Hydron Module geothermal systems. Through years of growth, the company became Enertech Global and is now a part of NIBE Climate Solutions.
Steve works to further the geothermal heat pump industry, serving as an active member of the Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO), speaking at industry-related events, and demonstrating his thought leadership through articles. But, Steve’s favorite type of work is being in the field, helping with installations and hearing directly from Hydron Module customers.
