Geothermal Technology, High Performance Buildings & Green Design


Clotfelter-Samokar is committed to incorporating green attributes in our designs whenever possible.


Green HVAC Design


Clotfelter-Samokar is nationally recognized as a leader in the implementation of geothermal technology. Having designed the first geothermal school in Kentucky, C-S is a pioneer in geothermal design. In fact, the majority of our designs since 1991 utilize a geothermal heating and cooling system. Due to years of experience with geothermal technology, we are able to offer the most affordable, innovative and user-friendly designs. Our experience has proven that, when designed properly and efficiently, geothermal systems are comparable in cost to a traditional system.


Our reputation as experts in geothermal design and our award-winning geothermal designs have earned C-S invitations to speak at nationwide meetings and conferences including:


David Samokar was one of the two architects in the U.S. asked to be a panelist for an international teleconference sponsored by the Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium.
