K & E Distributing are certified Geo Elite Dealers of ClimateMaster geothermal.

ClimateMaster is the world’s largest manufacturer of residential ENERGY STAR® qualified geothermal heat pumps for heating and cooling.

The Trilogy 45 Q-Mode delivers unprecedented comfort and energy efficiency through a “Trilogy” of precision components: variable speed compressor, variable speed fan and variable speed loop pump. You are always connected to this next generation technology through the internet-connected iGate system.

The variable speed compressor and fan set new standards for controlling temperature and humidity by running at lower speeds for longer periods. The compressor also powers the Q-Mode hot water generator which further reduces your energy bills for years to come.




During the winter, ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat stored in the ground through the water that circulates in its underground loop. This heat is carried to the ground source heat pumps where it’s concentrated and then sent as warm, comfortable air throughout your home.



During the summer, ClimateMaster geothermal heating and cooling systems absorb heat from your home and transfers it to the underground loop where it is then absorbed by the cooler earth. The geothermal heat pump uses the cool water returning from the earth to create cool, dehumidified air for your home.

The revolutionary, award winning new Trilogy 45 Q-Mode is the geothermal industry’s first fully variable geothermal heating and cooling system driven by communicating controls to deliver the highest efficiencies money can buy. This variable technology allows the system to “slow down” to 30% of full speed or “ramp up” to 100% of full speed, to meet the heating, cooling and hot water demands of your home, delivering ultra-high efficiency and lowest operating costs.

Combining the savings of using the earth’s natural energy and optimizing operation using a fully-variable system, the Trilogy 45 Q-Mode delivers over 45 EER cooling energy efficiency and 5.1 COP heating efficiency – the highest efficiencies (and lowest energy costs) of any system on the market today.

ClimateMaster’s geothermal heat pumps are up to 400-600% efficient, whereas the highest efficiency gas furnace is only 98% efficient.


Of all energy usage in a home, domestic water heating consumes the 2nd highest amount per the latest DOE statistics. The Trilogy’s Q-Mode year-round, full-time water heating provides over 80% savings on hot water heating costs, operating at over 500% efficiency, compared to electric element or gas water heaters which deliver less than 100% efficiency. It’s the only system on the market that delivers all four modes (Q-Mode) – space cooling, space heating, hot water generation while space cooling and dedicated hot water even when the unit is not space cooling.

The iGate Smart Tank, the industry’s first communicating water storage tank, can deliver all of your home’s hot water needs with five times the efficiency of a traditional electric water heater. Its high density foam insulation reduces heat losses more than any other water storage tank available. With Smart control on the tank, the Trilogy controls the electric elements to be used only in extreme conditions, only when the heat pump cannot satisfy the hot water needs.

vFlow™ internal variable water flow technology that moves the water through your geothermal loop, reduces water pumping power consumption by 60-80% compared to traditional external pumping modules, which can save and over $100 per year in an average 2,000 square foot home.

The type of geothermal units most commonly used, all of the geothermal heat pump components are built-in to a single package, meant to be installed inside your home. They are designed to be ultra quiet and have a long life away from harmful elements outside your home.


For applications with limited indoor space (replacing a traditional system with a geothermal system in an existing home), ClimateMaster offers split systems (compressor section separate from the air handling section), with separate compressor section models that can either be installed inside or outside your home.
