Brad had always had an involvement with a cleaner environment, working with companies for the remediation of contaminated sites. Brad was always on the look out for additional methods to produce a cleaner environment so he became involved in the Ground Source Heat pump industry, became an accredited WaterFurnace installer and a member of the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association.
