Oil Boiler System cleaning and safety inspection should be done annually.

 

Gas Boiler System cleaning and safety inspection should be done annaully.

 

 

Kedel Boiler   

 

 

Kedel pellet boilers contain a self-cleaning heat exchanger, which means most of the cleaning associated with ash, the byproduct of burning pellets, is done by the system. Required cleaning is reduced to once or twice a year and can be performed by the homeowner or a certified installed.

 

Annual inspection for operational safety and warranty protection is required by a licensed installer. 

 

Considering a new heating system, then check out the KEDEL. The state offers an incredible rebate of up to $6,000.Call and ask to speak to our specialized KEDEL team about install, rebate, and financing options.

Networking Success Story - Roshni Pecora - Northeast Dance Center

For me networking is a wonderful way to share my enthusiasm and passion about the business of not only teaching dance but connecting with our community and youth. You never know who you are going to meet, the people you can connect with, form relationships with and ultimately inspire or help. Also I use networking as a challenge to myself. Being somewhat shy by nature networking makes me step out of my comfort zone in return I have gained more self confidence and trust in myself.
