This page is designed to give you insight about all the options you have available when you work with Tom Fricker Complete Heating & Cooling
We install ultra-efficient modulating/condensing boilers.
Higher efficiency furnaces may qualify for rebates.
Replacement gas furnaces are typically installed within one day.
We fabricate any necessary ductwork at our shop, prior to showing up at the job site. This helps to ensure a smooth top-quality installation.
The industry standard for warranties on gas furnaces is generally 10 years for parts and 20 years to life for heat exchangers. This usually applies to the original purchaser of the equipment. If allowed by the manufacturer, when the property changes hands, the heat exchanger warranty is shortened to 10 years.
When replacing your furnace, you may want to consider adding an A/C coil if you plan to incorporate air conditioning at a later point. Doing this now can save you money.
We install boilers up to 96% efficiency range, as well as, lower efficiency gas boilers.
Depending on the manufacturer, the warranty on gas boilers can vary. Typically it can vary anywhere from 2–20 years, depending on the brand chosen.
The installation for smaller boilers usually takes a day; larger multizone boilers may take two days.
With most boiler installations, we will do all the necessary prefabrication work in our shop, as well as most of the control wiring. This not only saves you time with having us in your home less hours, but it also allows for the prefabrication to be done meticulously at our site.
As with other boiler installations, we remove old valves, pumps, controls, etc. We will always do this when replacing a boiler, some contractors may not. Everything will be cut out and replaced, aside from the piping to the system (this ensures a trouble-free system).
On-demand water heaters are now available with efficiency ratings as high 98%.
These type of water heaters require yearly maintenance to clean the heat exchanger part of the unit from any buildup on the inside of the pipes. If it is not cleaned yearly, it can impair the heat exchanging, thus, causing cooler than normal temperatures
We also install combi boilers—gas boilers that produce on-demand hot water. These are gaining in popularity, most if not all manufacturers now make a combi unit. We find them to be a very good value when replacing existing boilers and/or water heaters.
