Hulsman Refrigeration has been around 48 years in Dubois County. It is a famil- iar sign everyone has seen at the corner of Highway 56 and Kluemper Rd. Andy Hulsman and his son, Levi, both grew up in the refrigeration, heating and air conditioning busi- ness that spans three gen- erations back to 1970. Levi joined the business four years ago after graduat- ing from the University of Evansville with a degree in Business Management. "In 1970, air conditioning was a luxury," said Andy. They have seen air con- ditioners and furnaces change over the years as they have gone through numerous technological advances. One of the major advanc- es that has come along in Andy's time is the geother- mal WaterFurnace. There has never been a better time to buy one. Federal tax credits make them an even better buy. A WaterFurnace can reduce heating bills by as much as 70 percent. Be- cause they are so efficient, Hulsman said they qualify for a 30 percent tax credit for those installing a new unit. That means if you put in a $ 3,000 system, a home- owner will get a tax credit of almost $1,000. Another advantage of the WaterFurnace is there is no outside unit, as is the case with traditional air condi- tioners. Consequently, the homeowner can get a cred- it on their county property tax as well. A geothermal unit works off the heat in the earth. Ground temperature re- mains at 55 degrees year round. A water furnace uses a system of water pipes run- ning through the ground to provide heating. It then has a heat exchanger to pipe the heat either into your house in winter or out of your house in the summer. It doesn't have a heating system using fossil fuels for the heat. Hulsman said his father, Kenny, installed the first geothermal system in the area back in the 80s. "We re- ally do concentrate on geo- thermal. We probably do as much as 70 percent in geo- thermal," said Andy. He added there is a mis- conception about geother- mal, that it can't be installed in an existing house. Huls- man said units can be in- stalled in new construction or existing houses. There are numerous ways to install them, so they can accom- modate whatever type of lot the house sits on. "Where there's a will, there's a way," he said about geothermal. The units are made in In- diana at their Fort Wayne headquarters. Hulsman has a demo Wa- terFurnace unit in their shop to help explain how they work and answer ques- tions. In Levi's tenure, the tech- nology continues to devel- op with the advancement of smartphones. Symphony technologies has opened a lot of new options, such as remote control on smart- phones and the ability to heat and or cool in multi- ple zones within a home or business remotely. Owners can also get data feedback on their phones for energy usage and performance. Hulsman also carries tra- ditional heating and air con- ditioning units manufac- tured by Coleman in Wich- ita, Kan. Levi said new air conditioning units and fur- naces are still the same ba- sic principals as they have been for years. They are just better. "They get much bet- ter gas mileage," he about the improved efficiency. "If your furnace is several years old, the new ones will be more efficient and quiet- er," said Levi. Hulsman has seen a long line of coolants used in units, from the Freon of the old days to the environmen- tally friendly Puron®. Hulsman offers custom duct work to fit even the most challenging installa- tions. "We are a full-service company. We try to keep ev- erybody happy," said Levi. They are open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Fri- day and are located at 722 N. Kluemper Rd., Jasper. Whether you are look- ing for more efficiency, more economical opera- tion, a more environmental- ly-friendly system or just a quieter more reliable unit, Hulsman has the expertise and service to meet your needs.
