ADK Solar was established in 2014 by Jim Ammon and his son-in-law, Broc Jennings.
Jim has 15+ years of electrical experience, owning and operating Ampersand Electric with his brother, Tom Ammon. A Graduate of RIT, Jim has always had an interest and passion for new technology.
Prior to joining Ampersand Electric, Broc served as a Crew Chief in the United States Air Force. His background in electrical before joining the military was a driving force in his interest to pursue this industry.

Absolutely! With proper design and installation, solar is a great option in spite of our long winters and cold climates.
Not only does solar work in the Adirondacks, it THRIVES in the Adirondacks!
Yes! Heat pumps have come a very long way in the past few years. Thanks to new technology, certain brands are now designed to handle even the harshest of Adirondack winters. It is important to note, a majority of brands cannot handle our cold climates, so proper system design and installation is imperative.
Our team has dedicated the past four years to mastering this technology and it all started with experimenting with our own homes first.
We can confidently say that Heat Pumps can and will perform efficiently at our design temperature. These units are around 220% more efficient than any other heat source. Efficiency does begin to decrease in extreme cold, but the systems are rated to perform down to -22. Your units will continue to perform with even colder temperatures, but may require a backup heating source if you prefer to keep your home at a specific temperature.
We received direct guidance from a professor at Cornell University, concluding that the best value for your first dollar spent is on heat pump technology and your second dollar is best spent on insulation. A great investment idea would be to use your rebate check to further insulate your home to increase performance and save electricity.
We recommend that you check and clean your heat pump filters at least every 4-6 weeks.
Homes with numerous occupants and/or furbabies will need to do this more frequently. This is a quick and easy process that our team will show you during the final walkthrough.
It is also recommended to have your heat pumps professionally cleaned once per year. We do offer professional heat pump cleaning services with a special antimicrobial agent for both indoor and outdoor units. Please contact us today for an estimate!
