The water tube boiler installed in James Madison Middle School building was very old and a source for constant maintenance headaches. It was no longer providing sufficient capacity and reliability was poor. As a result, the School District purchased three new modular boilers as a replacement heating system for the building. Along with the boiler replacement, the owner decided to replace all of the zone pumps and associated controls. Hometown Mechanical was selected through the bidding process as the contractor to replace the boiler and pumps.

Hometown was responsible for removing the existing boiler, installing three new boilers and associated expansion tank and air separator, installing new intake and combustion piping, and for replacing five zone pumps. The existing distribution piping was to remain. The system was removed and replaced on schedule and on budget.

During construction, Hometown coordinated all necessary shut downs with the owner to prevent unscheduled outages and the work site was kept very clean. I am not aware of any call back issues from the owner. The project was completed in a very professional manner and I would be happy to have Hometown as the mechanical contractor on future projects.
