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

  • Excellent and prompt service.  The workmen were professional and helpful in their explanation of care and service of the equipment.

  • I want you to know how pleased I was with the entire experience.  From the initial meeting with Chris through the installation of my new A/C unit.

    - Sondra S.( Shaker Heights, Air Conditioning Installation July 2017 )
  • Installers were spot on time at 8 am, took care not to track dirt into house, and were both courteous and friendly.  Excellent quality work to boot!

    - John S.( Cleveland, Air Conditioning Installation, June 2017 )
  • I have had several projects from Verne & Ellsworth, across boiler replacements, heating system installation, and air conditioning system set up and install.  Each of these times, Bill Hann takes a ton of his time to talk to my wife and I to learn about the issues we’re having, explain the root causes of those issues, and suggest fixes that we know will prevent the issues from coming back – not just paper over the issue temporarily.  Lastly, he always delivers on time – onsite when he says he will be, fishing when he says he will – and always makes sure every aspect of the job is completed, from material removal and set up, to equipment install, to clean up after the project.  A++ and highly recommended!

  • The unit is working very well.  The installers were very professional, showed me how everything worked, and cleaned the basement beautifully.  I would never have even known they were there.  Thank you again.
