Here’s another nice photo from technician Micah G. of a recent boiler installation. Please give James River a call if you are interested in upgrading your heating system!
Here’s a job just sent to us by Chris, the head of our residential plumbing department. Every other company had told this client that they would have to vent through the chimney. Chris got creative, moved the dirt wall, and made the extra space to vent out the side! Now there’s room to set his outdoor units as well. Nice job, Chris!
Here’s a picture our lead plumber sent of a nice looking boiler install we recently completed in the West End.
We replaced an oil boiler with a new Crown gas boiler and a Crown MS-53 indirect water heater.
Do you have an old boiler that needs to be replaced? Give us a call or e-mail us!
Here’s a couple more projects we’ve completed in our plumbing department recently.
This is a before and after picture of another State tankless water heater installation. Unlike the original tank that vented up through the flue pipe, this one vents out line a 90+ furnace.
Here’s a picture sent in by our lead plumber, Chris, of a State brand tankless water heater. We’ve been installing other brands for years, but these State units are nice because they’re made in the USA, more efficient, lighter than all others, and condensate like a 90+ furnace.
E-mail us today if you’d like more information about having one installed!
As you may know, James River Air has a team of both commercial and residential plumbers to handle issues like leaking sinks, toilet and water heater replacements, and sewer line cleaning.
One problem we run into is tracing down sewer issues. One way we can test it is using peppermint extract, but sometimes we need something more sophisticated like a smoke test.
You can spend over a thousand dollars to buy a tool to do this. One of our commercial plumbers, Bob, had the bright idea to make one in house for a fraction of that! He had our sheet metal shop fabricate a box for him with a door to put a smoke pellet in, hooked up a spare fan motor he head, and put some insulation on it since it gets warm when operating. Nice job, Bob!
We’re all about finding creative solutions to problems like this that will help our customers.
