The Big Boiler Puzzle

On Display: Teamwork, Muscle, Experience

 

The Boiler Puzzle

     One thing, among many, that  Verne & Ellsworth Hann is good at doing is putting together a puzzle – and taking one apart. In this case, as illustrated in the photo above, we’re taking a puzzle apart. This puzzle in particular is a very, very heavy puzzle, one that is nearly a 3/4 million BTU steam boiler.

     Each one of these eight sections weighs well over 300 pounds and needs to be taken apart by large steel wedges and sledge hammers. The keys to taking this goliath apart is years of experience, working as a synchronized team, and lots of good old fashioned muscle. Let’s keep in mind each one of these cast iron sections needs to be removed delicately enough from a basement in order not to harm any woodwork, flooring or steps. The boiler team his highly aware of all of these facts because most often we find our work in older century homes. These homes typically have crafted woodworking, end-grain oak flooring and irreplaceable sandstone masonry walkways. Great care is taken to protect all of the unique assets of a home.

     Bringing in the new boiler takes even more attention to detail. The new boilers are delivered to the point of installation without a scratch on them. We can turn your old boiler room into a showroom. In fact, it’s not uncommon to for homeowners to proudly show off their new boiler to guests. It is a feat of modern day engineering.

     Once complete, the boiler puzzle will go on to serve your home well, keeping everybody warm and comfortable. It’s a puzzle that you don’t want to do yourself one lazy summer afternoon. Leave it to the professional boiler puzzle masters: Verne & Ellsworth Hann: 216-932-9755.

What People Are Saying

  • Your company did an excellent job!  We really appreciated how quickly your crew worked in order to get our heat back on as soon as possible.  Everyone seemed very knowledgeable, professional and excellent in their work!

  • Bill carefully examined the old boiler and piping, checked all the radiators and came up with a replacement proposal.  He explained two issues with the old boiler that other contractors did not notice or did not care to explain.  The first was what’s causing the rust in the boiler and how he was going to minimize the issue in the new system.  The second was how he would re-pipe the kitchen loop so the kitchen wouldn’t be so cold.  Bill addressed each and every question I had.  Although we received four bids that were comparable, we chose Bill Hann’s company because he was knowledgeable, thoughtful and detailed.  The work was completed in two days by a great installer team.  They were on time, professional and courteous.  The new boiler and piping work nicely without any issues and we now have a comfortable kitchen to dine in.  I’d highly recommend them.

  • I strongly recommend Verne & Ellsworth Hann without reservation.  Choosing the right boiler was important and proper installation was critical.  I was impressed with all aspects of the Verne & Ellsworth Hann organization.  Most importantly, Bill Hann earned my trust.  The installation team was excellent.  They were experienced.  They arrived precisely on time every day.  They explained every step of the process.  They worked as a team.  They treated my home with extreme care, as if it was their own.  The installation is a thing of beauty.  Every time I go into my basement I smile.  I now have a reliable, efficient system.  I don’t usually take the time to write recommendations, but in this case I am doing so because it is so well deserved.
