Cooling An Old City, Philadelphia Row Home With Ductless Air Conditioning

Abington Colonial Needs a New Boiler

PROBLEM: Our homeowners had a twenty-five year old boiler with a bad gas valve. Replacement of the unit was expensive and they decided it'd be wiser to invest in a new boiler as a long-term investment in their comfort and safety.

SOLUTION: ECI Comfort installed a newer version of their Burnham boiler, a series-3 Model #306 gas boiler with electronic ignition. This new boiler is more efficient than the old version and will save on fuel by not running a pilot light constantly. The new control packages can save between 15 and 20 percent in fuel costs.
