The Workhorses of your Hydronic Heating and Cooling System


Heating and cooling your commercial space can be a significant expense, especially if your boiler and chiller system is outdated or inefficient. You may experience: 

High Operating Costs

Hydronic Heating and Cooling can be one of the most efficient ways to heat and cool your facility. However, the sheer size and volume of most commercial or industrial facilities lead to high energy bills. Chiller Plants can account for up to 50% of the total energy usage in most commercial and industrial buildings.

Fuel burning boilers can be very inefficient and susceptible to volatility of the fuel market making it very hard to anticipate operating budgets from year to year. You may benefit from one or more energy saving opportunity at your facility.

Unexpected Downtime

 Downtime is the enemy of business. We know when your machine goes down that it could be costing you thousands of dollars per minute or may be the last straw to push your tenant to cancel their lease agreement. Prompt service and properly performed preventative maintenance can eliminate or at least mitigate unscheduled downtime.

Inconsistent Performance

Most manufacturing processes require precise temperature control for their product with minimal margin for error. Deviation from design by just a couple of degrees can ruin a whole batch of product. This could be devastating to your bottom line.

Recommissioning your HVAC system to bring it back to factory specifications can save on energy costs.

High Repair Cost

Unforeseen repair costs can ruin any Operating Budget.

Sample Projects

Full Boiler & chiller replacement

Provided design and installation of a 125-ton water-cooled chiller and 49 hp gas fired boiler for an older church facility.

The project included piping design, demolition of the existing steam boiler, heat exchangers and associated equipment and piping.


To resolve refrigerant management issues of a national retailer replaced R-11 centrifugal chillers at 8 locations from Southeastern Virginia thru the DC and surrounding metro area.

Work was performed during store operating hours without disruption to cooling. Installed variable frequency drives (inverters) on water pumps to control condenser water flow. Rebuilt and overhauled two additional 250-ton centrifugal chillers.


If you’re experiencing higher-than-normal energy bills, unexpected breakdowns, and inconsistent performance, it may be time to consider an upgrade or replacement.

Furthermore, maintenance programs keep your boiler and chillers operating per the original design and performance so you can focus on the many other tasks that come your way.
