Pequannock

 

The name “Pequannock”, is thought to have been derived from the Lenni Lenape Native American word “Paquettahhnuake”, meaning “cleared land ready for cultivation”. The township was formerly known as “Poquanick” a precinct in Hunterdon County as of March 1, 1720 but the new name, Pequannock township, was made official on March 25, 1740.

 

What is now a 7.1 square mile (18 km2) community (composed of Pompton Plains in its northern portion and old Pequannock in its southern) was once the country’s largest township with a vast 176-square-mile (460 km2) region of rural farmland.

 

New Jersey Monthly ranked Pequannock Township as the “Best Bang for the Buck” in New Jersey. In the 2015 edition of “Best Places to Live” in New Jersey, the township was ranked at an impressive position of 4th overall.

 

If you live in Pequannock and you require any sort of heating services, whether it’s an installation, repair, or replacement, we have you covered at Eco Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning.

 

Radiant Heating Systems

 

We cover installations, repairs, replacements, and routine servicing of radiant heating systems.

 

Radiant heating systems depend mostly on radiant heat transfer i.e. the transfer of heat from a hot surface to its surroundings, whether people or objects, through infrared radiation. Radiant heating systems provide heat to panels in the walls and ceilings or to floors.

 

There are many perks of having a radiant heating system and some of them include:

 

  • No duct losses (unlike with forced-air heating)
  • They do not distribute allergens
  •  They hold heat in the floor for a long time
  •  They mean you never have to get cold feet!

 

Radiant floor heating systems can also be broken into three categories:

 

Radiant air floors (air carries the heat) – air cannot hold large amounts of heat, so radiant air floors are not cost-effective in residential buildings.

 

Electric radiant floors – these systems consist of electric cables built into the floor.

 

Hot water (hydronic) radiant floors – these systems are popular in a lot of buildings. They use boilers so the water is heated and then passed through tubes beneath the floor.

 

The most common radiant heating systems are electric or hydronic. The hydronic system requires much less electricity and can be powered by a wide range of energy sources.

 

Radiant heating systems are very dependable and last for a long time when properly maintained. Fortunately, our HVAC contractors are available to attend to any of your needs or concerns, give us a call today!

 

Oil to Gas Conversion

 

If you are still operating on oil, there is no doubt that you are missing out on alternative sources to power your heating system. At Eco Plumbing, oil to gas conversion is a service we offer and one you should definitely consider.

 

A few reasons you shouldn’t think for too long about switching to gas are:

 

  • Natural gas is much more environmentally friendly. It produces less harmful byproducts and lowers your carbon footprint.
  • Gas is a versatile fuel, so it can do much more than just heating up your home, such as heating water in your home, your swimming pool, or lighting your gas fireplace.
  • Gas is easily distributed compared to oil. Oil needs to be physically carried to run your heating system, whereas gas is distributed through pipes

 

So if you’re interested in an oil to gas conversion, contact us today and get your system working as efficiently as possible.

 

Hot Forced-Air Heating

 

Hot forced-air heating is one of the most reliable sources of heat during colder seasons and our expert HVAC contractors are well equipped to handle any installations, repairs, replacement, and routine servicing you might need.

Hot forced-air heating systems also work well with both commercial and residential buildings and have been proven to be an efficient alternative for heat distribution.

 

This system uses ducts and vents throughout the building structure. Cooler air is gathered with a powerful blower fan, which draws in air and redirects it towards a heat source. The heated air is forced through the ductwork of the house and the air is used in a closed-loop. The cooler air is returned and the process starts over.

 

Due to the nature of their operation, hot forced-air heaters units are installed outside the home, unlike most heating systems. Besides the warmth and comfort a hot forced-air system provides, many factors contribute to the system being a popular pick for homeowners.

 

Some of these factors include:

 

Installation process is a breeze – this system’s installation process is far less complicated compared to other heating systems. To get some heating systems fully operational (radiant heating systems, for example) HVAC contractors may have to destroy surfaces in the home, like walls and ceilings. Not only does this make installation more expensive and time-consuming, but it could ruin the aesthetic of the property. However, this is not the case with forced-air systems, as the equipment needed to get them running is mostly already in place.

 

They are efficient – forced-air heating systems are powered by natural gas, one of the most readily available energy sources as opposed to water or electricity. Besides being easily accessible, natural gas is also environmentally friendly.

 

They distribute heat quickly – by directly heating the air, forced-air heating systems distribute heat around whatever room the heat is needed on time through the ducts.

FAQ

 

My radiator is cold at the top, do I need a repair?

As you might know, when your radiator is cold at the top it likely means air is trapped at the top, where there should be water. This means you will be missing out on essential heat! You can do this yourself by bleeding the radiator yourself, but if you’re not feeling confident, or you’re concerned there may be a more complex problem, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

 

What is the difference between a central heating system and forced-air heating system?

 

The main difference between these two systems is how they work. A forced-air heating system uses vents and heated ducts in order to heat the air circulating around the house, whereas a central heating system typically uses a boiler to heat your home, forced-air tends to use a furnace or heat pump instead.

 

Does my boiler need a replacement or a repair?

If you are having a lot of problems with your boiler and it is coming up to the twenty-year-old mark, then you might be better off investing in a new model. While expensive in the short term, you will likely save money in the long run. If still a relatively new model, you will want to make sure it is well maintained and serviced every year. If you are having problems with your boiler such as hearing strange noises or a drop in temperature, just give us a call, we’d be happy to help.
