NEW YORK (Jan. 20, 2014) – At the 2014 Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigerating Exposition (AHR Expo) in New York City, Grundfos and U.S. Boiler Company announced an agreement to pair Grundfos’ ALPHATM circulators as options on most U.S. Boiler gas cast-iron heating products. The combined product leverages both companies’ individual competencies in the industry and provides a solution for efficient heating in residential and light commercial applications.
“We know that the price of energy is a growing concern for many Americans. Grundfos’ collaboration with U.S. Boiler Company will allow us to deliver the total package for saving energy – a best-in-class boiler paired with an ultra-efficient pump,” said Barry Nauss, director of HVAC OEM Sales for Grundfos USA.
Made in the United States, the package will feature the ALPHA, a Grundfos pump designed for circulating liquids in light commercial and residential heating systems. The ALPHA features patented AUTOADAPT TM technology, which automatically analyzes the needs of the system and then adjusts operation to changes in demand. By learning the patterns of consumption, the pump can save end users up to 85 percent in energy costs when compared to a conventional circulator.
Dan Cork, vice president of Sales and Marketing for U.S. Boiler Company added, “We are pleased to offer this combination of leading-edge products. The Grundfos ALPHA pump is an advanced solution that many of our contractors have asked for, and it’s a great match with our industry-leading, technically advanced boilers. It’s always about giving customers the opportunity to use products that offer the most value to the complete system.”
Together with U.S. Boiler’s product, the boiler-pump package will achieve improved energy efficiency. The combined product will also ease the installation process.
"Grundfos is the global leader in pump solutions for boiler manufacturers,” Nauss said. “We are confident that this new collaboration with the U.S. Boiler Company will strengthen our share of the American market and help us achieve our long-term goal to reach $1 billion in annual sales.”
The package will be made available from Venco Sales, U.S. Boiler and Grundfos wholesalers in the New York market beginning Jan. 20.
