The homeowner was in love with her old boiler because of its unique cast iron look. At some point all of the original asbestos had been stripped off (most likely in a non-compliant manner) and as a result her cats like to sleep near it because a lot of heat was escaping into the basement.
On closer examination, it turned out her main return line was over 90% blocked, meaning the critical function of keeping a good water level was compromised. To make matters worse, we discovered her chimney was also severely block, preventing adequate venting of exhaust gases. Should this chimney become completely blocked, the risk of carbon monoxide was great.
All of these serious issues were resolved with the installation of a new boiler. The system was properly balanced so the whole house was evenly heated and the cats could sleep comfortably wherever they chose.
At Verne & Ellsworth Hann, we too think antiques have their charm. We just don’t think your boiler should be one of them.

From start to finish their work has met/exceeded our highest expectations. Bill Hann guided us through what needed to be done and his workmen were extremely competent and easy to communicate with. The new system works beautifully. Thank you! We highly recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann.

Verne & Ellsworth Hann has gone above and beyond for us repeatedly including giving us two salvaged cast iron radiators when our existing ones were not doing the trick. They came back countless times when we were unable to regulate the temperature in the house until they found the perfect balance. They’ve responded to emergencies in a matter of minutes and performed invaluable services professionally and expertly. I cannot recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann enough and will continue to use them and trust them with all of our home needs. They are fantastic.

Verne & Ellsworth Hann cared about making sure I knew my options. I was given detailed explanations to my questions and did not feel pressured at all. The crew was kind and considerate and put drop cloths everywhere. You must do yourself a favor and choose to work with Verne & Ellsworth Hann, Inc.
