ECM Motors, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

ECM motors are very popular amongst the HVAC sales force these days and while they certainly have some impressive features, be sure you understand what your getting into.

THE GOOD

  • ECM motors are incredibly efficient in their use of energy, top rated with no doubt.
  • ECM motors are very quiet and frankly are almost silent in their operations.

THE BAD

  • While top rated in energy usage, the margins between first and second are slim.
  • PSC motors have come along way and are significantly cheaper component of the HVAC system

THE UGLY

  • ECM motors are incredibly expensive to replace, as much as $1600 in some circimstances.

Commercial Plumbing full of surprises!!

While we never really know what kind of issues we are going to run into. At Baker Plumbing, we prepare for the worse and hope for the best! Here we have a project completed by others yet us and the client are left dealing with the problems! This entire commercial property was installed with Pex pipe (no problem) and plastic fittings!! (Seriously why???) This is at least the 10th failure we’ve repaired since the building opened 2 years ago!! When installers try to save by cutting corners, the end result is always the same!! TROUBLE! We did fix this client up and all is well that ends well, until next time anyway!!

WATCH THE REPAIR UNFOLD!
