Heating

 
The best equipment needs expert installation to achieve peak performance. Each of our boiler installations include the following:

High efficiency Spirovent: We never use autovents due to their short life and tendency to leak. Spirovents remove more air from the system, increasing the efficiency and reducing fuel consumption. They are more reliable, and seldom need replaced.

Low Water Shutoff:
Should the water level inside the system drop below a safe level, this safety switch automatically shuts down the system, preventing the boiler from overheating and burning up.

Pressure Reducing Valve: The domestic water pressure from either municipal water supply or well pump is higher than the boiler system can tolerate. This valve reduces the pressure of incoming water to protect the system.

Pressure Relief Valve: If the pressure in the system rises above 30 pounds, this valve safely vents the system to prevent the pipes from bursting.

Backflow Prevention Valve: The water inside the boiler system becomes very toxic, and your domestic water supply is hooked into this system. This valve prevents any toxic water from backflowing in to your drinkable water.

Circulator Pumps: We install the circulator pumps on the supply lines. Even though all circulator pump manufacturers specify that their pumps should be installed on the supply side of the system, nearly all installers place them on the return side. This practice reduces the ability of the pump to overcome head pressures, reducing the efficiency of the system.

Valves, Valves, Valves: Each functional part of the boiler system is isolated with a shutoff valve above and below. This allows for quick and easy change out should a part ever fail. Without these valves, before repairs could begin, the entire system would have to be drained down, leaving the home owner without heat for an extended period of time.

We use Erie zone valves, Taco circulator pumps, and Rielo burners. These high quality parts offer superior reliability to our customers. (Certain applications or customer preference may require us to use a different product)
 
 
 

Air Quality

 
 

Did You Know?

  • The air in the average home has 6 times more pollutant than the outdoor air.
  • Most homes naturally generate about 40 pounds of dust each year for every 1500 square feet of space.
  • Up to 72 trillion allergens find their way into your home every year.
  • Asthma and allergy sufferers are breathing easier and living more comfortable than ever.

Does your current air filter remove dust, smoke, pet dander and allergens or just circulate them through your home?
 
Electronic Air Cleaners: Most home owners presume their current system filters the air as it heats or cools the home. But the fact is, your system may be making the problem worse, not better.
That’s because most systems are equipped with only a standard 1” filter, designed to keep things like dust bunnies and hair balls from damaging the equipment. They aren’t designed to clean air, so every time the system runs, it churns up dust and allergens and circulates them through your home.
Electronic Air Cleaners have revolutionized air filtration. EACs trap allergens down to .3 microns in size. Soot, dust mold spores and bacteria are often .3 microns, so small that 2,000,000 could fit on the period at the end of this sentence. These particles can get deep in your lungs because they aren’t filtered well by your nose and throat. Electronic Air Cleaners remove up to 99.98% of tiny particles like these, effectively reducing triggers for asthma and allergies from your home.

Truesteam Humidifier: Aprilaire Humidifiers Hydrate Your Home for Increased Comfort and Energy Savings!
Your home is a lot like your body. It needs to stay properly hydrated in order to maintain the health and comfort of those living in it.
Air that is too dry can act like a giant sponge, soaking moisture up from everything that it touches in your home—woodwork, wood floors and furnishing – not to mention symptoms of dry skin, chapped lips, dry nasal passages and static electricity.
No doubt about it, dry air can take a toll on your family and your home.
Honeywell humidifiers can help introduce moisture into your home helping you reach the appropriate humidity level. This not only increases comfort but can also reduce heating bills. Because humidified air feels warmer, you’ll be able to turn your thermostat down for energy savings.
Aprilaire Humidifiers are Designed For Today’s Equipment.
The world of heating and cooling equipment is vastly different today than it was even a few years ago, with the trend towards high-efficiency, variable speed, dual-fuel and heat pump systems. Because of how these systems operate, yesterday's humidifiers often fail to deliver the humidification that homeowners desire. You told us that you needed a humidification system that operated independently from the equipment.
Moisture on Demand - Aprilaire works by producing its own steam independent of equipment operation, so your home gets moisture when you need it most.

Eco-Friendly - Aprilaire is the most eco-friendly way to humidify your home, because for every 1 gallon of water used, 1 gallon of humidification is produced. "True Steam" - While other humidifiers rely on moisture-filled pads that can be susceptible to bacteria growth in the water and the airstream, Aprilaire delivers "true steam" - the cleanest form of humidification.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind - Aprilaire is installed out-of-sight by your heating and cooling professional into your home's central heating and cooling system. You can forget about having to fill clunky, portable units, because Aprilaire automatically fills itself.

Whole-House Solution - Installs directly or remotely to your furnace to deliver moisture throughout your entire home.
Minimal Maintenance - Simply clean once a year with soap and water and the rest of the time it cleans itself automatically.
