Replacement of Oil Fired Boiler

We removed an old inefficient oil boiler at the Clough residence and installed a new Pensotti oil boiler, which is a much better option than going with an LP Gas conversion. LP gas delivery was a problem last year and who knows what will happen? (more…)

York Library Circulator Replacement

Eastern Mechanical technicians recently replaced two B&G circulators at the York Public library with Wilo high efficiency circulators which will save them hundreds of dollars in operating cost each year. The circulators were old and in need of a second tear down and repair. A standard circulator runs at full speed every time there is a call for heat. The Wilo circulators alternate automatically and only run at a speed required to satisfy the heating demand. If you have four zones of heat and only one zone calling you only need a minimum flow of water to heat the space. These circulators work in commercial as well as residential applications. Call Eastern Mechanical Inc for high efficiency heating products.

Summer Heat

Finally out of the cold weather and into the heat. What happened to spring?
Below are some items to look at to keep your house cool.
Check you air filter located in the indoor part of your air conditioning system.
A dirty filter can cause bad air flow and a frozen coil.
This filter should be changed or cleaned each year.
Check the condensate drain also located in the indoor unit.
Air conditioners remove moisture from the air which needs to drain. Make sure the drain is working.
Take a hose and rinse the out door unit coil and look inside to see if any pine needles or grass clippings have fallen inside. This should also be kept clean.
Finally at some point in the spring have your unit checked by Eastern Mechanical Inc. to make sure it is performing at a tip top level.
