It's no surprise that we're big fans of Anderson Heating. We've turned to them for almost every heating need since their visit to repair a leaky pipe. Over the course of the renovation, we've found a few folks who are the unquestionable go-to's and Glen and Ben are two of them. Glen knows more about fluid-mechanics than most engineers (and I'm married to one and a son-in-law to another).
Our boiler for the radiant heat was installed a bit backwards a few decades ago and it was on its last legs. Granted, it might've held out for another season or two, but the last thing we wanted was a broken heater on a cold night in Concord with our heating guys tackling jobs in the South Bay.
I contacted them few weeks ago when the old-boiler broke again and Glen talked me through a fix (a safety switch was thrown). We began to discuss the idea of a new boiler. Given the market forces and the warming temperature, they were able to offer an outstanding deal on a new Triangle Tube Solo-110 wall-hanging boiler. Additionally, since the unit is energy-star rated, we're eligible for a $1500 tax-credit at year's end (which might not hold out forever)...
We decided to take the plunge and on Monday -- a week or so after we initially discussed it, Glen and Ben were installing the new unit.
As with all of their work , the installation is top-notch and super-clean -- just the way I like it. We even worked together to install a bit of pegboard over the old drywall to give the wall a bit more finished look and a lot more functionality.
After the install, Glen took the time to go over everything in detail, which was quite nice.
Here are some pictures of the install before I re-loaded the utility room with garden supplies. Fortunately, since there's so much new room available, I think I can store my new battery-powered mower out there.
