Colonial Commercial Corp. has announced that its Universal Supply Group Inc. subsidiary has been appointed as a GeoStar distributor for New Jersey and portions of New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

GeoStar is a division of WaterFurnace Renewable Energy, a manufacturer of residential, commercial, industrial and institutional geothermal and water source heat pumps.

“The GeoStar line is consistent with our strategy of integrating state-of-the-art high efficiency green products into our residential and commercial HVAC dealer and contractor base,” says Pete Gasiewicz, vice president of sales for Colonial.

The GeoStar line includes the G Series geothermal heat pumps with units available from 2 tons to 6 tons, and up to 4.8 COP and 28 EER, plus console units and indoor and outdoor splits; and the Q Series all-in-one geothermal boiler, furnace and air conditioner; and the Y Series geothermal heat pumps with optional hot water heater. Accessories such as thermostats, geothermal storage tanks and air handlers complete the GeoStar brand.
