Advanced system harbors efficient heat for Chicago condominium building.
With a rapidly failing water heater, and an old, inefficient boiler, a 20-unit condominium building in Chicago required major upgrades to its heating system. High efficiency condensing boilers and indirect-fired water heaters from Weil-McLain provided the remedy needed. Chicago-based Hayes Mechanical, who handled repairs to the building’s HVAC system for years, was selected to handle the heating upgrade. The project began in mid-November 2015.

Taking on Old Man Winter.
A residential radiant + snowmelt project. A New York state homeowner decided to knock down his 5,000-sq.ft. home and replace it with a much larger one (I believe around 17,000 s.f.) – and has a beautiful floating stone paver driveway that’s completely decked out with snowmelt technology. While he vacationed in the tropics last winter, he was able to see a blizzard coming, bumped up the temperature and could watch the feet of snow pile down on everything, but his drive and walkways (thanks to radiant) all from the security cameras.
