Our New Heating System is Complete!

After countless hours of research and consideration, the Board of Trustees has approved a $386,075 contract with CT HVAC, Inc. to replace our heating system. After adding 20% for unexpected occurrences and cosmetic repairs once the job is completed, the total estimated cost for the project is $463,290.

The new heating system has been installed, and we have silent heat in the Sanctuary, and the option of air conditioning as well as heat in Congregational Hall and the education wing.

During the work, the old steam pipes were removed from the sanctuary.  Considerable work was done in Congregational Hall and the Guild Room.  New piping was laid along the ceilings. 

A giant crane parked in our parking lot lifted heavy condensers onto the roof. 


We installed a high efficiency system. There will be a hydronic system for the Sanctuary, running on dual gas boilers.

There is a separate heat pump system for Congregational Hall and the Annex, which will be electric. The heat pump system has the advantage of offering air conditioning. The majority of the distribution system was replaced.

This 1925 penny was found in the sanctuary as they were removing the old steam pipes. The first penny towards funding this project?

We will be undertaking a capital campaign in 2018 in order to re-pay a loan to fund this necessary project.
