Think energy efficiency. Nashoba Air & BoilerWorks can help you maximize your home performance and save on utility bills. How?
Your own backyard has the potential to be an energy source for heating and cooling comfort. Outdoor air temperatures fluctuate throughout the year. However, dig down about four to six feet and you will find the ground's temperature remains approximately 55 degrees all year. By tapping this steady flow of heat from the earth in the winter, and putting it back in the earth in the summer, a Geothermal System can save homeowners 40 to 70 percent in heating costs and 30 to 50 percent in cooling costs.
There are a few different options on how to install a Geothermal System which include a closed or open vertical loop, horizontal loop and pond loop. In Massachusetts, the most common is a closed, vertical loop. This loop is used mainly when land area is limited and in retrofit of existing homes. A drilling rig is used to bore holes at a depth of 150 to 200 feet. A U-shaped coil of high density pipe is inserted into the bore hole. The holes are then backfilled with a sealing solution.
Want to save 30 - 70 percent off your utility and fuel bills? Consider geothermal. We have a really nice presentation on how the entire system works. When we visit your home, we will share this presentation and determine what the best application is for your home. We work with several well companies that will help you with your well digging needs.
What is a “Hybrid” System? Well, it's just like a hybrid car that uses both gasoline and electricity. A Hybrid System uses a combination of electricity and either oil or LP for heat. The source is a heat pump. It looks just like the outdoor unit of an air conditioner. “Heat pump” is probably not the best term for this product because it actually heats and cools. Yes, you get heating and air conditioning all built into one system!
How does it work? A Hybrid System simply extracts the heat that's present in outdoor air in the winter and delivers it inside your home to keep you warm and comfortable. Yes, heat is present in all air - even air that's well below freezing! When the temperature outside is 37 degrees or higher, the Hybrid System uses electricity to heat your home. When it's really cold outside, the system automatically switches to oil or gas for better efficiency. In the summer, the process reverses. The heat pump pulls heat out of indoor air and releases it outside to keep your home cool and comfortable.
What are the benefits of a Hybrid System? Operating costs are lower! A Hybrid System will reduce your home heating bills and save energy for the environment. While saving money, you will also be more comfortable. Standard gas heating systems send off a blast of hot air when it goes on and off. A Hybrid System provides more even heat that helps take away temperature swings from room to room.
Hybrid Systems operate at 300% efficienct even when it is 20 degrees outside. As the temperature gets warmer outside a heat pump will operate up to 450% efficient, compared to a gas furnace that will be between 55-95% efficient. Just imagine for every dollar you spend you get $4.50 back in heat.

If your facility requires high domestic water demands, contact us about solar systems. Laundromats and gyms are perfect applications for a solar application. In addition to your monthly cost savings, there are rebates and excise tax deductions available. Roll your investment into a monthly lease, and you may even be able to lower your monthly expense payments, increasing your capital expenditures. Allow us to review your current system and we will conduct an energy analysis that will present your return on investment. View a very informational pamphlet on Solar Energy.
Find more information on solar rebates and tax deductions in your region. In addition to rebates, you will learn more about the Massachusetts Excise Tax Deduction for Solar-Powered Systems and the New Hampshire Local Option Property Tax Exemption for Renewable Energy.
The Dave Lennox Signature® Collection of air conditioners and heat pumps come Solar Ready, which means they can serve as the platform for “going solar.” You simply add roof modules to these systems now or in the future – and now you are running your heat a/c “off the grid.” How it does this depends on the technology you choose.
Solar water heaters can be a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your home. They can be used in any climate, and the fuel they use, “sunshine,” is free. They are designed to absorb the sun’s energy from a solar collection system, transferring that energy to the internal heat exchanger of the tank. This provides an abundance of usable hot water with the utmost efficiency.
