More About Protech HVAC
I am the owner of Protech HVAC, LLC and became self-employed in 1988, then changed my business name to Protech in 2004 when I moved to Rye, NH. Ever since, my team has been designing & building systems to conform to any building and its owner’s and occupants’ needs – virtually everything Indoor Climate Control. You name it, if it involves moving air, water, humidity, refrigerant and temperature we can do it, expertly.
2016 marks the 36th year I’ve been in the HVAC trade and I’ve been expanding my knowledge and experience ever since. My 1st job in the trade was as an oil burner technician, for Tenney Fuels, Inc. I came across this sign in a friend’s collection and took a picture of it. The company was formed as Tenney Coal Company, in 1942, changed their name to Tenney Coal & Oil, in the ’50s, then became Tenney Fuels, Inc., after dropping coal in the early 1970s.
This Gravity Hot Air (GHA) heating system started its life in the late 1800s, was 1st a coal-fired furnace, then was converted to oil by “Tenney Coal & Oil”, in 1957. I cleaned the furnace in the early 80s. In 2010 I was hired to re-build it with a new burner and controls, etc., but I showed the owner how dirty the 3′ X 1′ wooden return air duct was (runs down the cellar wall at right, then becomes a trench that runs beneath the snow blower and furnace) – it had never been cleaned, and she decided to have me replace the entire system.
At least 50% of the heating systems I learned on were ancient hold-overs from coal-burning days that were converted to oil after WWII. Timken Rotary Burners, Iron Fireman, Winkler, GE, Kalamazoo, and the one above – a Sunbeam furnace and Quiet Heet burner – were regularly on my service call schedule. As time passed, newer systems replaced these massive, in-efficient models, and I rarely see anything like this today.
This is the Forced Hot Air (FHA) system that replaced that ole relic.
John Rocheleau’s HVAC Products
Today, I build the best systems my customers’ budget lets them buy, using the best products I can find, including New England Made – Innovative Trades Solutions, LLC (ITS) – products of my own design. 7 are visible (1 is hidden) in this picture.
Virtually all forced hot water heating circulators sold in America and Canada today connect to flanges and valves that incorporate features from my original inventions, that I licensed to Taco, Inc., in 1999. Read John Rocheleau’s Inventing Story.
