This is a boiler that provides supplemental heat to a house that already has forced air heating. Heat from this boiler is used on the lower level to heat a number of rooms each of which have separate thermostatic controls. In addition to heating the rooms in the lower level, this boiler is also used to heat the floor of the garage. In addition to heating the floor of the garage, it heats an apron outside of the garage, so that if you have ice buildup you can just use a shovel and just push it away because it will have melted the interface between the snow and the concrete. In addition to heating the garage floor, this boiler is also used to heat domestic water with an indirect water tank. This water tank operates at the same 95% efficiency as the boiler does. You can tell it’s a 95% boiler by looking at the plastic flue pipes. Your standard domestic water heater operates at 58%. This will significantly reduce your impact on the environment and reduce your water heating costs.
With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging, HVAC professionals are constantly looking at ways to help reduce the spread of the virus indoors.
Pets are among the best family members we could have: They love us unconditionally, they’re always happy to see us, they make us laugh, they give us comfort. In short, they make our lives infinitely better.
Having furry babies also means having pet hair and dander all over your home. The vacuum cleaner has become your best friend. Lint rollers have become indispensable. Every time you look at yourself in the mirror, you have a couple of stray hairs from your puppy or kitty stuck somewhere on your clothes.
All in all, it’s accurate to say that when we have pets, we need to be mindful of ways to keep our HVAC systems at home working efficiently.
