Progress marches on for our future location on Lee Road. We started on the floor and now we’re up on the roof. The new location is about a half mile north of our present location. So, we’ll stay in the same zip code.

Taking The Right Steps Towards Preparation

We take your home seriously when we arrive for an installation. Whether it’s the flower bed next to our trucks, the sandstone walkway to your front door or the inside of your home. From the front walk to the final position of your heating equipment, we have you covered all the way. Whereas another contractor may lay down a drop cloth – or worse yet, just decide to haphazardly clean up the dirt they track in afterwards, Verne & Ellsworth Hann puts a priority on protecting your home. In fact, it’s  the first thing our crew does. We budget our time and the prep materials for every job. We even have a washer and dryer at our shop to make sure our techs and installers have clean drop cloths every time they arrive at your home. Now, given the thoughtful approach in preparing for your installation, you can imagine how meticulous and precision oriented the actual installation of your project itself will get.

Antiques have their charm. Antique boilers do not.

 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.

    Barry has just left after giving us a walk through of our new systems which are vastly superior to what was replaced.  Jake, Adam, Will, Barry and Brian were all skilled, diligent, professional and courteous in every aspect.  Clearly, we chose wisely when we hired you.
