CATERING TO LOCALS SINCE 1923

by Douglas Yaun

With the recent passing of the Casino Bill, our region is at a crossroads. Will we benefit from a renewed interest in the resort traditions or will we be subjected to development that has little affect on the community? Those who are unfamiliar with the Catskill’s identity will see only a blank canvas but if we are diligent about our vision we could enhance the quality effects that this new attention will have on our local economy. All of you who shop with us know the power of local loyalties. A developer will have to make hundreds of seemingly arbitrary decisions about product and labor source, character, style and symbiosis with our existing community services but they all add up to having real impacts. How much of that work calls upon local business owners will greatly affect both the health of our community and the success of a project. Day-to-day we each wield great power when we make choices about how to invest our resources. As harmless as it seems to occasionally divert business to big box retailers, that action adds up. For instance, an Iowa State University study found that with the opening of a new Walmart in any community 84% of sales simply shifted dollars away from existing local merchants. The most frustrating part is the perception of convenience is inaccurate. Better service, and therefore, better value can be found in local businesses. This is evident in two areas: 1. You'll ensure choice and diversity of product because local businesses are better equipped to adapt to your needs. 2. You'll help maintain community character because local businesses reinvest in other local services and charities, keep neighbors employed and build meaningful partnerships with shared reputations Mar/Apr 14

As a result the slightest voltage drop using a millivolt system does not result in a lockout. Some competitors require filters to be cleaned on a regular basis. The Rheem system in designed with air intake above the floor level. This area is large and as such provides a low velocity of air flow which further helps to eliminate pulling dust and debris towards the water heater. **( 2) Resistors help by eliminating stray electrolysis. This adds life expectancy to the water heater. ****(4) Warranty extension Kits add an additional anode rod. Rheem can have over 130% more cathodic protection in our products.

Just the Facts If you are installing high efficiency heating equipment and using PVC pipe for the flue gas venting, it is important to consider expansion and contraction. PVC pipe will expand and contract in relation to temperature changes. According to an article in Indoor Comfort Marketing Magazine, one should allow 3/8” length variation for every 100’ of pipe per 10°F temperature change. It also notes that “the maximum recommended operating temperature for pvc pressure pipe is 140°F”.

Flow Rates As many of you probably are aware, Caleffi™ not only offers a wide range of products for the hydronic industry, but freely makes important information available to the heating trade. In a idronics™ Journal I read their section on Flow Velocity. Contractors often worry that the heat distribution pipe size may not be adequate or high flow rates through pipe that is too small will result in excessive noise. Good, but we sometimes forget that a large pipe with a small flow rate (below 2 ft/ sec (gpm) will make it very difficult to move air bubbles to a purger. Neither under-sizing or oversizing heat pipe is a good idea. Caleffi can provide a formula for proper sizing your distribution system or you can take a look at the handy chart they provide. On the Web: idronics_8_us.pdf

Homeowners Popular Choice The number one reason consumers choose HeatLink hydronic radiant floor heating is COMFORT. The system eliminates chilly drafts. There’s no need for fans to move air around and no dust. HeatLink pumps warm water through the pex tubing and provides consistent warmth on tile, vinyl, wood, stone and other floor coverings.

Make 2014 the energy savings year for your customers! We are very excited with a great lineup of new products which will do just that. Ask Larry Richardson about his new Firebird oil condensing boiler 91.5% AFUE recognized on Energy Star 2013 most efficient list. Take a look at the AET and Viessmann solar hot water heating systems and ask your tax consultant about tax credits. The HVAC industry has also seen some changes. Samsung introduced its new Whisper line of mini split A/C heat pumps which are all Energy Star with 20+ SEER ratings. Rheem’s new R series multi position gas furnace line with AFUE ratings as high as 96%, and they tell us we will soon see 98% AFUE models! Learn about and offer your customers a HYBRID heating system. A HYBRID system operates on more than one fuel source and can switch back and forth automatically to offer savings while using lower cost energy sources. Nordyne / Miller offers two 95% condensing gas furnace which are direct replacements for the CMF and the MI series. Our Electric Department is seeing energy saving products also. Ask Douglas Yaun about his new LED conversion kits to upgrade old florescent fixtures to LED. Stop by our Liberty location to see the conversion unit on display over our counter. Take a look at the full line of LED products we have to offer. For years Yaun Co. has been striving to introduce more efficient products for the contractor to offer their customers to help them save money. Many of the more savvy contractors jumped on right away

and have been successful selling the higher end products which save the end user fuel. I’m sad to say this same message has fallen on many deaf ears. Nothing makes me cringe more then hearing someone ask for a boiler with a tank less coil. With all the changes our government has mandated in our industry in the last 10 years, why would you think of it? We saw the SEER rating rise to 13 SEER, R22 to R410A change, and the one still on the fence splitting the north and south at the Mason Dixon line! This makes everyone above the line must sell gas furnaces over 90% and below the line must sell a higher than 13 SEER cooling unit. Why hasn’t the Government scrutinized the boilers with a tank less coil?! With all the newer products coming down the pike why would anyone want to have their boiler maintain temperature all day every day 365 days a year? Take a look at the Biasi B10 triple pass boiler or a Viessmann boiler connected to an indirect water. The indirect water heater stores hot water produced by the boiler and only turns the boiler on when the tank temperature drops. The boiler now no longer has to maintain temperature. It may turn on just once a day depending on the hot water usage, and no more wasted heat just going up the chimney. So where is this going? My point is don’t assume that someone can’t afford the better system. Your job should be to offer them both types of systems. Yes, quote them the plain old fuel guzzler boiler with a tank less coil and also offer them an upgrade to fuel saving with a triple pass boiler and the indirect water heater. Take a little time and educate them on these new products and how spending a little extra now will save them everyday down in the future.

New Rheem R series furnaces

Are you selling Hybrid systems?

We received great response from installers who installed the new Rheem R series furnaces. This new all in one furnace will fit all your needs. The R series is an out of the box set up for vertical installations. By selecting the correct vent conversion kit you can convert this furnace into a counter flow or a horizontal LH or RH discharge. Unlike other brands there is no need to reposition the inducer. Only the drain and drain lines may need to be repositioned. Everyone who has seen the new R series furnace line has liked the improvements. Easy access door knobs with index pins make putting the doors on and off a snap. The metal cabinet edges on the inside of the furnace have been bent back which now protect the contractor from cuts and add rigidity to the furnace cabinet. Controls have been upgraded. No more counting flashes: you will see a digital code. These are only a few of the improvements. The previous Rheem furnace line were considered real work horses and we expect this new generation of Rheem R series gas furnaces to be way ahead of the pack. Ask for more information and a quote on your next furnace job. Take a look at our reduced Closeout Prices on the discontinued Rheem gas furnaces. If you have not seen it, ask for a copy today.

A few issues ago I did an article about selling a Hybrid heating system. In case you missed it or need to be reminded, this may help you increase your sales. We think nothing of selling a heating and cooling system, gas or oil furnace with an A/C coil. Now you can keep up with today’s trends by offering a Hybrid heating system. On your next heating and cooling job offer a Good, Better, and Best. The Good will be with the Rheem Value line; the Better will be the standard Rheem units; and the Best will be the Rheem Heat pump system. It’s simple. Ask us to quote both A/C and heat pump on your next job and let your customer decide. The good news is the Rheem A/C coil we stock is good for both cooling and heat pumps. Emphasize the savings they can expect from using the heat pump which will automatically switch over to second-stage be it gas, electric or oil. Remember with a heat pump you are not burning or using a fuel source to generate heat. You are simply transferring heat from the outdoors to the indoors using the same process as the A/C by simply reversing the flow of the Freon. Keep in mind when you are explaining the Hybrid system they have a full output at 47°F which is the temperature we are at most of the winter. Elucidate

Affordable and Efficient M1 Series Oil or Gas Furnace • designed for all sizes of manufactured and modular homes • insulated cabinet ensures minimized heat loss and quiet operation can be installed in a utilty room, enclosed closed or alcove • can be connected with a heat pump coil to create a Hybrid system which will be even more energy efficient

the COP; Coefficient of performance. The coefficient of performance or COP of a heat pump is a ratio of heating or cooling provided to electrical energy consumed. Higher COPs equate to lower operating costs. Think of it this way with electric strip heat: for every dollar worth of electric you put in, you get one dollar of heat out. The heat pump which only transfers energy from one place to another and does not burn fuel is able to get you more heat for your money through the use of the compressor. Remember, consumers talk every day about the price of gas and very little about the price of heating fuel as they may only purchase it one or two times a year. You need to educate them on these new, higher efficient products. They will cut their fuel costs and offset the added cost to upgrade to more efficient heating and cooling products.

YaunCo: History and Heritage By Nicole Scholet, Scholet Solutions

2014 marked the 91st year of business for Yaun Company. Even after nine decades, the Yaun family continues to run the company, now in its fourth generation of leadership. Through the years, Yaun Co. has persevered and adapted through market changes, economic downturns and supply shortages, wars, and new technology. How has this family-run company lasted all of these years? It is because of its commitment to all aspects of the wholesale business for the plumbing, electrical, and HVAC industries. It is also because of Yaun Co.’s continued commitment to its customers, employees, and the community. This was true during the company’s founding in 1923 and is still true today. Origins of Yaun Company: Throughout the years, the origins of Yaun Co have been summarized into one sentence: “Yaun Company was started in 1923 as a one-man retail plumbing and heating business by R.D. Yaun, who would travel job to job in his Model T Ford Pickup.” While this is all true, it does not capture the rich history of a 91-year-old family-run business, nor does it summarize its longstanding presence in the wholesaling field.

Through his foresight, determination, and hard work, founder R.D. Yaun was able to take a one-man traveling retail plumbing and heating business, transform it into a retail hardware business, and then into a wholesale business with additional sheet metal and electrical departments. In 1971 under the tutelage of R.H.Yaun the business grew into one of the 100 leading wholesalers in the nation for the industry. The principles that guided Yaun Company are still guiding it today. As Yaun Co. heads into its 91st year, the YaunCo Report will be publishing a series of “History and Heritage” articles reflecting on Yaun Co.’s commitment to the various aspects of the business. Next report’s article: “History and Heritage: Yaun Co.’s Commitment to Quality and Innovation. Yaun Company is committed to the business and committed to you. “Serving You is our Business.” 1.
