Do You Have a Thermo Pride Furnace?

When either you or the previous owner chose to install your home’s furnace, you picked the best – Thermo Pride.

It was – and is – the finest home furnace made. If there is such a thing as a classic heater, the Thermo Pride furnace is a classic.

Even today, there is not a furnace which combines Thermo Pride’s attention to detail. From its powder coated paint which shrugs off the years, to its unique heavy 13 gauge copper coated heat exchanger, to its quite ceramic combustion chamber the unit was engineered to provide a lifetime of quiet, efficient service.

They truly don’t make them like this anymore.

We were the first Thermo Pride dealer in Delaware in the early 1970’s. Since that time we have installed and serviced hundreds, if not thousands of these units. We can count on one hand the number we have replaced because they failed.
Technology has continued to improve since you purchased your Thermo Pride.
For example, the Riello oil burners we are using today are much more efficient than the burners that were available when your furnace was new. Also blower motors have been replaced with new computer controlled, variable speed models which use much less electricity and can provide infinite blower speeds to meet your needs. Finally thermostats can now be remotely controlled on your smartphone or tablet and actually learn your particular lifestyle to operate as efficiently as possible.

We service every brand of furnace – oil or gas – on the market. I am not aware of any other heater that can be upgraded for new technology. Typically you rip it out and start over – not an inexpensive proposition. Not so with Thermo Pride.

Because you bought the best, we can make it even better with modern technology for a lot less than the cost of a new heater.

For much less money and time than replacing the entire furnace, we can bring your Thermo Pride up to date with:
• New Riello High Efficiency Oil Burner uses less oil
• New Computer Controlled Variable speed ECM blower motor
• New WIFI enabled Programmable thermostat

All of us are keenly aware of how high energy prices have been over the past few years and We do not have a crystal ball to predict the future. We are always looking for the best possible choices for our customers. It may be that switching to other fuels and investing in an entirely new system is your best investment. And we can work with you on that. But this may be a less expensive alternative with a better payback. Why not find out more?

A family member of ours flew for the U.S. Air Force in the 60’s and 70’s. He was talking about his experiences over the holidays and said that his son-in- law flew not just flew the same model plane – but the same plane in the 80’s and 90’s and that plane is still in the inventory today! The airframe is solid. By upgrading engines and avionics, the plane remains state of the art.

So too with your Thermo Pride furnace, the “bones” of the furnace – the heat exchanger, combustion chamber and the jacket – are the finest on the market. By upgrading it with modern burner, blower and control technology you can have the best of both worlds for thousands of dollars less than the cost of a new furnace.

Better than new at half the cost of a new one!

In fact, we will provide the same 10 year Parts and Labor Warranty that a new heater gets!

We have a number of customers who have cut their heating bills in half by modernizing their equipment and replacing their old air conditioner with a modern hybrid heat unit which provides both heating and cooling.

Keeping your equipment in the best possible condition is our job and this program is one more way that we try to do that.
