HVAC Heating With Walley’s

Your Home. Your System. Our Job.

Walley’s specializes in all types of residential and commercial heating systems. So whether gas, oil, or electric systems — our team has the tools, truck, and training to get the job done on time and on budget. With all the options available today, it is critical to partner with someone you can trust to know exactly which one makes the most sense for your application. Below is a brief outline on some of the systems we work on every day.

Forced Air Systems

Read More

The most common way to heat/cool a home is the forced air system. Whenever we talk about a furnace, air handler, central air conditioner, hydro air system, or a rooftop system we are talking about a forced air system. While they all have different ways of heating or cooling, they all utilize a central ducting system to move the air. The efficiency and comfort you would enjoy with a forced air system, then, heavily relies on the quality of the ducting system. From a load calculation and equipment selection to ducting design and register selection, every detail affects the quality of your forced air system. Unfortunately, many existing systems are not properly sized, sealed, insulated, or laid out to deliver proper air flow; therefore, the quality of your ducting must be considered when replacing your equipment. If there are problems that can be fixed, it is always recommended that you fix them when replacing your equipment so that your new system delivers optimal performance.

Forced Water Systems

Read More

A forced water system utilizes a boiler with either a gas or oil burner to heat water. Then the circulator pump moves the heated water through the baseboard registers, radiant heating loops, hydro air system, or some combination of the three to provide heating for your home or business. While these systems are not commonly installed in new construction homes any longer due to large up-front costs, long completion times, and the ease with which central air conditioning systems pair with forced air heating systems, they are still, however, very common in existing homes built over the last 50 years throughout New England. The large cost of converting from forced water to forced air leads many to keep forced water systems in place even when it’s time to replace the boiler. Additionally many high-end homes and estates choose these systems because the benefits and flexibility outweigh the costs, when combined with hydro air.

Rooftop Systems

Read More

If you are looking to heat/cool a commercial building where square footage is a premium, then placing your forced air system on the roof may be exactly what you are looking for. Many engineers need to heat/cool large areas but within limited budgets and operational space, so rooftop systems can be the perfect solution. A rooftop system delivers conditioned air via a central ducting system. Often this is accomplished through a gas/electric packaged unit with either side or bottom mounted duct connections that tie directly into the building’s central ducting system. Most add an economizer for more efficiency as well. In large applications you will often see dozens of rooftop units (RTU’s) on a single roof. Each system is connected to its own central ducting system that handles heating and cooling for a specific space of the building. These units are very heavy, so we need a crane to hoist them up or take old ones down.

Steam Heating Systems

Read More

Like a forced water system, a steam system uses a boiler to heat water; however, instead of heating the water to 180-200 degrees with a typical water boiler, the steam heating system uses a steam boiler to boil the water at 212 degrees. The hot steam that rises as the water burns off is used to provide heat through steam piping and in-room registers for your living spaces. While being virtually non-existent in new construction homes, you will find these systems in older homes, and since steam conversion can be both costly and timely, most people continue to use the building’s existing piping while just replacing their boilers. Very few HVAC contractors even work on steam heating systems, and the ones who do work on them aren’t as familiar with them, so many of the systems are missing critical components needed for efficient operation. Walley’s, however, specializes in both steam conversions and steam boiler (gas and oil) replacements.

Boilers

Read More

We love boilers! From removal to start-up, our process is tailored to make boiler projects as seamless as possible. We work with both gas and oil burners, and our team is trained to size, design, service and install most makes and models for residential and commercial applications. Whether conventional or high-efficiency, water or steam, we offer a full range of services for your boiler. We service most makes and models while offering world class brands like Burnham, Buderus, and Viessmann for replacements and new installations. For replacements we can cut everything out and start from scratch with new piping, valves, controls, drainage, venting, etc. Or, we can work with your existing configuration to keep the costs down. Our process is built to offer quick turnaround times when you have an emergency without rushing the details. From filing permits to passing inspections, we coordinate everything from start to finish, so you can have peace of mind.

Heat Pumps

Read More

We offer two styles of heat pumps — ductless mini-split and central systems (ductwork). Both of these systems use outside air and refrigeration to transfer heat inside your home. Ductless mini-splits are really efficient and operate in a temperature as low as 15 degrees below zero. The indoor units come in several varieties for your floor, wall, and ceiling — which make them perfect for tough retrofits. Central systems are efficient, but their operation caps out in temperatures of 25-30 degrees, so you will need a secondary heating source such as an electric heating element, gas furnace, or hot water coil (hydro air). With both systems, it is critical to properly size the equipment and refrigeration piping, match the models, and install them exactly to manufacturer specifications to avoid stressful call backs.

Hydro Air

Read More

Get the best from both a forced air and forced water system by combining them in the hydro-air system. It is just like a traditional central air conditioning system with the primary difference being that it has another coil in the indoor unit. Instead of just a refrigeration coil connected to the outdoor air conditioner or heat pump, there is a second coil built in. This hot water coil connects to the boiler through the water piping and allows you to run heating and cooling through a central ducting system. With many options, you can utilize a boiler to heat your hot water with an indirect tank, run a zone for radiant heat in the kitchen and bathroom, run another zone for a space heater in the garage to keep the cars warm, and another zone for a hydro-air unit to provide primary heating and cooling through a central ducting system for the house. This system offers great flexibility for large applications like estates, commercial buildings, or other large properties, and they help reduce the number of fuel burning appliances by running several zones off a single boiler — which leads to lower operational costs each month.

 

Electric Heat

Read More

Maybe you have an air conditioner or heat pump, but you don’t have gas lines or oil/propane tanks. Once the temperature outside gets to 30 and below, you will want to have a backup heating source. Without gas or oil, an electric heat kit may be exactly what you are looking for. Some people call these electric furnaces. We often find these types of systems in larger developments where other fuel sources may not have been an option for the builder. Most air handlers come with the ability to install an electric element insert to provide back-up heating when the temperature drops below what a central heat pump can handle. We wire everything to automate the process, so no matter what the temperature is outside, your system knows what to do!

Indoor Air Quality

Read More

We don’t just think about the temperature of the air in your space, but we can also assist you in getting rid of the pollutants and microorganisms that may be contaminating your air. If you need fresh air ventilation in an airtight space like a basement, we can install an ERV or HRV system. We install all types of humidifiers which keep moisture levels from drying out. An extra step you can take in destroying microorganisms and keeping your coil clean is adding a UV light called a germicidal lamp. Air filters and air cleaners catch, clean, and destroy foreign objects in the air system that can make you sick. The right filter can even protect your new equipment and reduce static pressure. Whether you are into state-of-the-art modern tech or you like to keep things old fashioned and simple — we have the thermostat and control system for you. From smart systems to traditional ones, we will find the perfect system for you!
