The only Hann family owned heating, cooling & plumbing business in Cleveland!

» 2020

For the fourth consecutive year, Verne & Ellsworth Hann has given away a FREE furnace, including installation, to a deserving member of the community. This year’s winner will receive a new high efficiency heating system and installation, with a total value of up to $3,500. Verne & Ellsworth Hann co-owners and brothers, Bill and Chris Hann, selected a handful of finalists and made personal visits to their homes.

“We created the Helping Hann free furnace giveaway as a way for our entire organization to give back to the community that has supported us for so many years,” – Chris Hann

 

Verne & Ellsworth Hann is committed to its customers and community. Located in Cleveland Heights for the past 66 years, Chris Bill and their sister Patty represent the family’s fourth generation in the trade; fifth-generation nephew, Jason, manages the service department.

“Last year, it was our honor to install a new furnace for Willoughby resident, Heather Kwedder. Heather faced many challenges with her son’s ongoing health issues and her unreliable old furnace was a constant worry. Her story, and those of past winners, is the reason we continue the tradition of the Helping Hann Free Furnace Giveaway.” – Chris Hann

WHAT IS UV LIGHT?

UV (ultraviolet) Light disinfection is now widely used in hospitals and laboratories to sanitize instruments and work surfaces and to prevent the spread of potentially lethal airborne infectious diseases.  The technology is used by the food industry to sterilize food before packaging and water treatment systems now incorporate UV light as a chemical-free means of purification.  According to the EPA, indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk.  Having a UV light will improve indoor air quality by sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air as it cycles through the central air system.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

UV light kills germs by giving them an intense “sunburn.”  It only affects things it shines on directly.  Nothing spreads into the home except clean air.  The germ-killing effect takes place inside the air system and is limited to that area.  There is no danger to any living thing in the home except microbes that are carried by the air into the central air system.  The product is intended to be on 24 hours a day.  Mold doesn’t stop growing, and cycling the UV light on and off would shorten the life of the UV lamp.  The germ-killing effect starts immediately with about 90% of surface microbes sterilized within the first few minutes and about 99.9% sterilized after the first 24 hours.

If you live in the University Heights area and you have an older home, there is a chance that your home is heated with a boiler and you have radiators that heat individual rooms. Radiators are made out of a variety of materials. Some of the most common materials used for radiators are cast iron, steel, copper and aluminum. Radiators could last up to fifteen years but annual preventative maintenance will help to extend its life. If you need to have radiators or a boiler replaced, then you should contact a local Cleveland heating company. Verne & Ellsworth Hann has been installing, repairing and providing maintenance services on boilers and radiators for decades.

It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with your radiators. The more you know about your radiator system the easier it will be to identify when there is a problem. Hearing loud or unusual noises coming from the radiators can indicate that there is a problem. If you know how the system sounds normally when it turns on and off or when it is running, it will help to identify when there is a loud or unusual noise. Another common problem with radiators is that it may start leaking. If you notice water on or around the radiator and there is no other cause for it, then your radiator might be leaking. Even a small drip is something that could be a problem. Excess air and water can build up in the radiator. It is a good idea to have a technician “bleed” the radiator in order to get any air or water out of the system. Bleeding or venting the radiator should be done at least once a year.

Our heating experts are certified in radiator repair and maintenance services. If you having any problems with your heating system, then give us a call and schedule an appointment today.

You may experience several common problems with radiators.

  • The radiator may start leaking water
  • There maybe be rust building up on the outside of the radiator
  • Rust or sludge may be building up on the inside of the radiator, this may cause the water flow to become obstructed
  • The radiator may start making a loud or unusual noise
  • The radiator may start running extremely hot
  • The radiator may start fluctuating in temperature
  • A part of the radiator may feel cold while the rest of it is hot, this may indicate that air is trapped in the radiator

Radiators come in many shapes, sizes and configurations. A “standard” radiator is a wall or floor mounted unit. These radiators have evolved over time to become more sleek and stylish. Convector radiators, also know as baseboard radiators are straight sections of copper piping outfitted with numerous thin metal plates called fins. Convectors may be mounted to a wall near the floor or set in the floor and are covered by a metal grate.

If you are experiencing problems with your radiators, give us a call. Our skilled heating technicians will be able to get your heating system up and running again.
