ALTERNATE HEATING SYSTEMS, LLC RELOCATES TO CHAMBERSBURG
[Chambersburg, PA – February 7, 2011] - Alternate Heating Systems, LLC, a local manufacturer of innovative heating products for over 30 years, has relocated to 1086 Wayne Avenue in Chambersburg, PA. The move allows the company room to expand their growing operations into a facility with 80,000 square feet of office and manufacturing space. AHS manufactures wood, coal, multi-fuel and waste oil boilers, and are best known for their patented Wood GunTM and Coal GunTM boilers. Their focus on advanced technology in wood and biomass burning devices led them to develop the Wood GunTM which an independant testing laboratory called “the most efficient wood burning device built today.” They provide solutions suitable for residential, commercial and industrial applications.
Alternative heating products have been gaining in popularity due to rising fuel prices, concerns over dependence on imported fuels, and increased focus on environmentally friendly solutions. In addition, the AHS wood and coal burning boilers have proven to provide a significant reduction in heating costs for their customers. Demand for their products has created such a strong, steady increase in sales; it has forced AHS to search for larger facilities twice in the past three years. AHS currently employs 20 workers, but are looking to hire on an additional 30-40 employees to help
keep up with demand.
The new location on Wayne Avenue provides enough space to incorporate all of production and manufacturing along with sales and office staff in one facility, streamling the business. Easy access to Interstate-81 makes it convenient for customers to visit the showroom to see the products in person. AHS owner, Brian Wise, is positioning the business to become a predominant manufacturer of heating products within the U.S. and Canada.
“The move is really key to increasing our production, cutting costs and helping us reach our goals as a company. We have already started working on initiatives which are now possible for future expansion, such as building our own lab for UL and EPA testing,” Brian says. “This will also allow us to do more testing and development on the products to continue to improve and refine them.”
Brian and his staff consistently show pride and confidence in their products as they speak in absolute terms of having the best products on the market.
“The Wood Gun gassification boiler is an extremely reliable boiler that incorporates cutting edge technology for the highest level of efficiency. Our Wood Gun customers have cut their heating costs by up to 70%. The Coal Gun is another effective solution for customers. The average commercial unit will pay for itself within a two-year period. The smallest model will provide heat for an entire home including domestic hot water at 50% or less than the cost of conventional oil, gas or electric systems,” comments Brian. “Our boilers have helped customers saves thousands of dollars over the years in their homes, farms, and businesses. And they are available with various sized augurs, which reduces the amount of labor needed to operate them. The larger ones can go for days without needing refilled.”
From reading their customer’s testimonials, it’s apparent the AHS staff is not the only ones who think pretty highly of their products. Although they just landed on Wayne Avenue, there is little doubt in the minds of the AHS team about where they are headed as a company. With this level of confidence and determination, it’s just a matter of time until they get there.
