March 23, 2009 - PRLog -- ITT and its long-time Representative, Wallace Eannace Associates of Long Island, New York recently provided both Bell & Gossett hydronic heating pumps and accessories and McDonnell & Miller boiler controls to the Emmy-winning PBS home improvement series, This Old House.  The products were used in the renovation of a Brooklyn brownstone, the first-ever New York City project in the show’s 30-year history.  The 1904 Renaissance Revival townhouse was a former rooming house that will be transformed into a three-family home.  Episodes featuring the This Old House New York City project are currently airing on PBS.

A total of 15 different hydronic heating products, including Bell & Gossett 3-Speed NRF® wet rotor circulators and McDonnell & Miller’s RB-122 low water cutoffs, were donated to the This Old House New York City project by ITT and Wallace Eannace. Other ITT products donated included Bell & Gossett Check-Trol® isolation valves, Circuit Setter® balancing valves, expansion tanks, reducing valves, differential bypass valves, an EAS® enhanced air separator and a PSH primary/secondary header.

The This Old House team, along with architect Susanne Lyn and general contractor Michael Streaman, finished the residential project in February. Considerable damage was done to the 4,000 sq.-ft. property during its years as a rooming house but many period details are still intact.  Refurbishing these well-worn period details while adding modern conveniences will repair years of neglect while updating the house for 21st century living.  The renovation plan involved patching and painting the house’s exterior brownstone and performing a preservation-minded restoration of its cavernous interior.  The plan also called for removing the numerous boarding-house washrooms that were retrofitted into closet space years ago and transforming its first floor back parlor into a modern-day kitchen.

Randy and Erik Gitli of Aladdin Plumbing & Heating of Brooklyn installed the heating System.  Randy, who is president of Aladdin, expressed pride in being involved in the brownstone renovation, saying, “The unique services of Wallace Eannace Associates, in integrating their product offering into the project along with their start-up services, has made this project a joy.  We are pleased to be working with such a fine organization that makes our job that much easier in the long run.”
