As you may have heard, new regulations went into effect earlier this year that required design changes in residential water heaters. The new style is more efficient, but has a significantly larger diameter. Here’s a “Pre-2015” model on the left along with a “Current” model on the right.
If you think your water heater might be due for replacement, take a look at the space that’s available where it’s installed. Plan ahead so that if and when your water heater does fail, you’re not caught by surprise with a space that won’t accommodate the new style heaters.
Here’s some video of the application of spray foam insulation to the walls in our new residential call center at our office. We used the same type of insulation at our Solar Idea House. We consider all aspects of your home, including insulation. Contact us today to learn how to make your home more efficient!
It’s with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to one of our longest-serving employees. Our commercial special projects supervisor, Bruce Allsop, is retiring after 43 years of service with James River Air.
For many years now, Bruce has managed our commercial equipment replacement jobs. He’s been a link between the engineers and supervisors that design the projects and the technicians that complete the actual install. Whether you needed help designing the best solution for a client, assistance on the job site putting the equipment in, or troubleshooting on difficult circumstances, Bruce was your guy.
Bruce worked with the founder, Hugh E. Joyce, during his time leading the company and has always demonstrated the great qualities that Hugh, Sr. taught his employees.
We wish Bruce the best, and thank him for his many years of service! His wife, Mary, also a long-time employee, still works with James River, so we’re sure we’ll still see plenty of him around!
