Hot water heating is the second largest energy hog in most Vermont homes. By choosing the right equipment, locating it properly, and utilizing effective hot water re-cirulation systems when appropriate, substantial reductions in energy cost and hot water waste can be achieved.

We of a range of innovative water heating products:

  • Tankless water heaters by Rinnai that have several distinct advantages. They are very efficient and only heat hot water as you use it with no stand-by losses. They are very compact, so they save space and can be located very close to your primary points of use which can help save time and water waiting for hot water to arrive after opening a tap.
  • Heat Pump Water Heaters: These small, efficient, and compact water heaters are installed in conjunction with an existing water heater and extract heat from your basement or utility space to heat your hot water with unbelievably efficiency. This results in water heating cost that are lower than any other alternative in our area. We feature heat pump water heaters by AirGenerate.
  • Drain cleaning is a big part of our business. We feature remote camera inspection of drain systems that prevents unnecessary excavation and property damage. We also use the latest environmentally-friendly biological drain openers.
