When considering any major plumbing bid you need to understand that not all bids are the same. There are many different ways to plumb the same system. Likewise there is an array of parts to choose from. One bid might be cheaper because the contractor is going to plumb it the fastest way he knows how. Or he is going to use cheaper parts. Also you want to make sure the contractor you are getting a bid from is a legitimate business. You want to be covered under his bond and insurance. Also its nice to know he will be around in the future should there be a problem with your system.
With a Fusion Bid, we bid for the most efficient, serviceable and reliable way. Things such as solid brass unions are used rather than the usual rubber gasket unions that are typically seen. A set of brass unions runs 120.00 versus the 20.00 that dielectric union costs. However, you won’t be needing a service call every year to repair these.
All your plumbing from the wall out will be replaced. Whenever possible your piping, pumps, zone valves and all equipment will be hung using uni-strut and pipe clamps and hangers. We don’t leave critical parts dangling in the air. This takes more time and of course money in parts to do but our goal is to give you the most dependable installation.
Placement of serviceable items such as the expansion tank, pumps, fast fill valve and back-flow preventer are also given careful consideration. Our goal is to make these items quick and easy to change when they become worn out. We won’t box in a serviceable part which requires extensive removal of other parts to get to it. Again this translates to a quick service call or perhaps a job you can do on your own.
Each zone is given its own shutoff and purge valve. This is essential for purging out the air in the boiler for efficient operation. It also allows for just a single zone to be shutoff making repairs easier while also allowing the other zones to operate. Also a spiro-vent air eliminator or an air-scoop is plumbed inline to further ensure air is scrubbed out.
All of our bids also include a Taco zone controller. This is a great addition to any boiler system. It allows for easy diagnostics of your boiler system as well as making the wiring a nice neat package rather than the usual confusing spaghetti factory of most boiler wiring.
Whenever possible we only use American made parts and equipment. All of our tools our American made as well.
Even with all these extras Fusion is usually one of the cheaper bids you will receive. This is thanks to our smart business approach of low overhead costs, not inferior parts or workmanship.
Lastly, Fusion Plumbing is in the business for the long haul. We stand behind our work, our products and our customers. We pride ourselves on giving prior customers top priority in an emergency situation.
