RSI has completed over 250 heat line replumbs. We take pride in the fact that we can do a job quickly, affordably, and leave very little indication we performed major surgery on the dwelling, regardless of the type of finish work involved. We believe that only a few heat line pipe products are worth installing. RSI uses Wirsbo products, which offer a 30-year warranty. The durability of copper has been proven, although heat expansion can be an issue. It is RSI's policy to work with the local plumbing and heating service company on the replumb in order to insure long life of every new system installed. Our job is to replace all the heat loops with very little penetration, making sure the repair work is barely noticeable. It is important to remember that the manifold and the boiler area need to be regularly serviced by a local heating technician.

RSI removed a custom designed mahogany ceiling to gain access to the replumb area. Upon completion of the replumb, the owner commented that his ceiling, "looks better now than before we started."
In the photo above RSI located the transition point and started fresh with WIRSBO. The homeowner was given a 30-year warranty, and peace of mind.
The photo illustrates the corrosion that occurs when oxygen is induced into a hydronic heat system. Notice the build up on all of the components. This system had to be discarded and completely redesigned.
RSI has a policy that includes the old saying, "Where There is a Will, There is a Way." For the job pictured, we had to enter through the outside of the home in order to replumb this area. RSI technicians restored the siding to its original condition.
