ForensisGroup Geothermal Heat Pump Expert Witnesses work in all aspects of geothermal heat pumps or ground source heat pumps (GSHP), which as central heating and/or cooling systems. A GSHP transfers heat to or from the ground and uses the earth as a heat source (in the winter) or a heat sink (in the summer). Geothermal heat pump systems are extremely energy and cost efficient. They typically require less energy to produce the equivalent cooling and heating output of other heat pumps on the market.
Our Geothermal Heat Pump Expert Witnesses work on class actions, faulty installations claims, contractor liability, tax credit cases, and also in the representation of geothermal power plants which produce geothermal energy.
Our experts have opined in cases concerning the faulty installation of a heating/air conditioning geothermal heat pump. They are well-versed on geothermal installation, repair, and replacement. Because the geothermal installation process is not a product on which every contractor is educated and trained, there have been numerous problems with installations. These cases have been brought under breach of contract, breach of warranty, tort, negligence, and negligent misrepresentation by manufacturers of the quality of their heat pumps.
Our experts are knowledgeable about state consumer protection statutes, building codes, and safety regulations.
Choose from a wide range of highly qualified professionals. All of our professionals are chosen for their exceptional talent and knowledge bases and are fully credentialed and well respected in their fields. ForensisGroup is the premier source for your geothermal heat pump expert witness.
I have more than 15 years of experience in Mechanical Engineering with control systems design, systems commissioning and building engineering project management. In 2013 I established an engineering company and developed an integrated design process that optimizes mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and building systems designs with the end user in mind. I have years of field experience testing, commissioning, and troubleshooting various building systems and designs to pinpoint and resolve deficiencies, and I have spent a large portion of my career identifying design pitfalls, diagnosing anomalies, and developing solutions for operational and code compliance issues. I have prior expert witness experience.
I have more than 20 years experience in the fields of Mechanical and Forensic Engineering with expertise in Fires and Explosions consulting. I have conducted more than 2,000 investigations ranging from small pipe ruptures to multi-million dollar industrial plant explosions. I have additional experience with mechanical and electrical systems, analysis of mechanical and electrical failures, and root cause investigations of boiler, turbine (steam and gas), pressure vessel and piping ruptures and explosions. I also have extensive experience in evaluations of damage to process facilities and power plants; estimating repair/replacement costs; analysis and technical investigations of residential, commercial and industrial accidents; analysis of design, fractures, corrosion and material properties; fire and explosion origin and cause investigations; evaluation of construction and heavy equipment, and; monitoring and analysis of radiation and/or contamination hazards. I have over 20 years expert witness experience with consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony.
