Recent Comment<br><br> Gary, I have wanted to let you know that you and your men did an <br>excellent job, and we are very pleased with the results. Our church <br>building is much warmer and dryer, and the heat is much more uniform <br>and dependable. You planned the job very well and carried out your <br>plan effectively, dealing very well with some unexpected problems <br>along the way.<br><br>When I was in the church building at the same <br>time as your men, they were always very friendly, courteous, and diligent<br>in the work they were doing, reflecting the fine leadership that you give them.<br>You obviously have an outstanding knowledge of complex heating systems<br>and great skill in working with them.<br><br>Again, thanks for everything,<br> Blessings and prayers,<br><br> Pastor V.<br>Dear Gary,<br><br> <br><br>When I decided to install a radiant floor hydronic heating system in my new house, I called Gravener Heating. Their web site advertised experience and expertise, and after a conversation with Gary Gravener, I had the feeling they were the right shop for the job. Although this was high season (November) for Gravener, he scheduled me to begin the job within ten days.<br>On the appointed day, the crew showed up and began installing the system. In a few days the system was installed and crew had done its work with great care and neatness. Gary opened the valves to the heating loops and the hot water began to circulate. With the thermostat set, the tubes heated up the floors and room temperatures rose. In a few hours, the radiant floors produced enough heat to keep the house comfortable. I haven't touched the thermostats since. The system has performed flawlessly and efficiently, while operating very quietly. Gary's men had done a great job.<br><br>Werner K.<br><br> <br>Commercial<br><br><br>Gravener Heating has been a blessing to our church. After years of problems with a very old system with one steam boiler, Gary Gravener designed a more efficient system using two hot water boilers and one steam boiler. He also redesigned the church from a single heating zone to a five heating zone system. We had other companies give us bids and Gravener Heating gave us the most reduction in our gas usage. Northminster Presbyterian Church is almost one hundred years old. The steam piping was very old and Gravener did an excellent job replacing the pipes and re-fitting the radiators for hot water.<br><br>Gary and his men respected the building daily as they worked. They protected the carpet and always cleaned up any debris. They were always kind and considerate to all the people. The job was done on time and Gary was always available if we had any questions.<br><br>Thanks to Gravener Heating our church is now warm and our gas bills are much lower.<br><br>Buildings and Ground Committee<br><br>Beth and Terry G.<br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br><br>Residential<br><br>Dear Gary,<br><br>For over 45 years I have lived in a 1&1/2 story “hot box.” I was always told I could not have air conditioning since I had hot water heat. Well, you changed all of that and installed a system with flexible ducts and ceiling diffusers.<br><br>Your crew, especially Pauly, was very confident in their work and also very courteous. He treated my house like it was his own, with a minimum of mess and cleanup.<br><br>You are very lucky to have such an employee like Pauly. Because of him I would recommend your company to anyone, anytime, anywhere.<br><br>Your rates were also reasonable compared to other companies that bid on our job.<br>Thanks again for a great job and for hiring great people.<br><br>Joseph C.<br>Pittsburgh, PA<br><br>P.S.<br>Feel free to pass this on to any customer. I would be glad to talk to them about it.<br> <br><br>Residential<br><br>Hi Gary,<br><br>"We were impressed with the friendliness and knowledge of the employees and the straight forward approach of Gary. He definitely gives the impression that he will be there to service any needs we have with the A/C system he installed and from talking with others who have used his company, that is the case. I know I will use Gravener Heating and A/C again when the need arises." <br><br>Now for the Bryant A/C: I know you can't just look at a snap shot in time to see the reduction in electricity usage because many factors affect that usage. However, when I compare the summer period from July 14, 2006 thru September 13, 2006 with the same period from 2005, my average daily electricity consumption (per my Penn Power bill) had decreased approximately 50% during that 2 month period while the average temperature was only 1 degree less (approximately 1.5% lower). In addition, the outside unit compared to recent units installed by neighbors, is significantly quieter when running. Needless to say, we are happy with our decision to install the higher efficiency Bryant unit.<br><br>Thanks,<br><br>Jim M.<br><br>Residential<br><br>Gary,<br><br>We’re quite pleased with the Trane system we purchased. The installation was well done and everything is running fine. The air conditioning runs a lot less than the old system, with far better results. We are especially pleased with the new air cleaner; it has made a huge difference.<br><br>The adjustments you made to the internal ducts also made quite a difference on the second floor. We have had a very comfortable house all summer – it’s been great.<br><br>It’s still a little early to really gauge the power savings, related to the new high-efficiency components, but we will review the electric bills once we get through the remaining hot weather. I’ll be most interested to see the difference this new system makes this winter.<br><br>See you at the scheduled time for the official commissioning and check out of the furnace this fall. It has been 16 years now, and you’ve always been available when we’ve needed your services. We truly appreciate your commitment to our satisfaction.<br><br>Thanks for a job well done.<br><br>Jan and Terry K.<br><br> <br><br> <br> <br><br>Commercial<br><br>Gravener Heating installed heating and air conditioning in four separate commercial rental units in a freshly restored historic building located in Bradford Woods Borough. <br><br>Gary Gravener did all of the HVAC engineering, drawings, and sizing for each unit to suit the tenants’ requirements. In addition to the price of the complete job being very competitive, the service and the quality of the workmanship was excellent. Gravener Heating personnel were prompt, courteous, and had great work standards. The company’s in-house sheet metal fabrication facility added to the promptness of material delivery and also reflected in the cost-effectiveness of the total installation. And any service-related issues were addressed promptly and personally, no matter the time of day or night.<br><br>Gravener Heating prides itself on a trained staff with friendly personnel.<br><br>We were unfamiliar with the company prior to the start of this project, but we became friends by the completion, and that’s a great feeling to us as property owners.<br><br>Gravener Heating is large enough to handle any heating and air conditioning needs but still small enough to care.<br><br>We would be happy to speak to anyone about the service that we received.<br><br>Thanks, Gary and staff.<br><br>Joe and Jason U.
