Project Summary:
George Evans Corporation had a boiler failure over the New Year holiday. The company uses a washer boiler to heat alkaline wash water, which removes oil and debris from parts prior to painting. Without the hot wash inventory, production was brought to a halt. Crawford's emergency crew used Triangle Tube 95% Efficient Modulating Boilers with stainless steel heat exchangers. The new installation replaced an 80% Efficient Lochinvar Copper Fin Boiler. The installation occurred during the New Year holiday shutdown, just in time for the company to resume production on Jan. 3rd. The new installation with provide efficiency and reliability for years to come.

I appreciate your expertise discussing my air conditioning project and our little doodles on paper for the finer points and needs. I enjoyed the personal attention to detail. I was impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of engineering, organizing, timing and installation. I'm so glad that we still have union contractors that know how to do things right. As you know I have worked 37 years thru the IBEW # 145. On larger projects we would be assigned a "tool buddy" to work in the same area and help each other when needed. The reason I mention this is because Jeff O'Leary is the kind of journeyman I would choose to work with. He is polite, calm, well-spoken and knowledgeable. Of course an HVAC system is not a kit. It is a custom installation. Jeff made it easy to discuss the finer points and the installation as needed. I enjoyed the experience and I am very pleased with the outcome. The air is fresh and clean and easy to breath.
