Our team does more than just plumbing; we are also skilled at resolving your heating and ventilation problems in St. John’s and the entire Avalon Peninsula. We can provide routine service, maintenance packages as well as new installation of energy efficient furnaces and heat recovery ventilators (HRVs).
Heat recovery ventilators are a great way to keep the air in your home fresh, improving the overall air quality. As structures are now built to be more airtight to improve energy efficiency, the need for an HRV has become obvious in order to allow fresh air into the home.
An HRV collects the warm, stale air in your home, captures its heat to warm the cool, fresh air from outside and then pushes the fresh air throughout your home. The stale air is then expelled from the system and pushed outside. These ventilators need routine maintenance to keep them clean and running at peak performance. Eastpoint Plumbing and Heating can install a new HRV at your home or service and repair your existing one.
Hydronic heating uses a system of plastic pipes that are laid within the floor and carry hot water into specific rooms. The hot water disperses heat throughout the floor surface, warming the floor rather than raising the temperature of the air. Once the water has cooled, it returns to the heat source where it is reheated and sent out again. Eastpoint Plumbing and Heating is able to install this type of heating system at your home and can also repair existing hydronic heating systems.
Heat pumps are essentially heat transporters that are constantly moving warm air throughout your home. Depending on the season, warm air can either be taken from where it isn’t need, or moved to where it is. So when it’s cold outside, a heat pump will take outside heat and transfer it indoors. Then, when the weather warms up, it will reverse, acting like an air conditioner and will remove heat from your home. At Eastpoint Plumbing and Heating, we can both install and repair heat pump systems for our clients.
