With our fully stocked service vehicles, you will not experience needless delay waiting for repairs to be completed.

When a heating system is correctly installed, it can provide years of comfort. Our installation specialists undergo continual training in the latest installation techniques and keep up-to-date on developments in heating technology.
Your heater is an essential part of a comfortable indoor environment. In order to make sure it works when you need it, proper maintenance is critical.

Our tiered plans mean you can choose the level of protection you need, and, at the same time, give you the ability to manage your finances.

Whether you need a whole-house heating system installed or want to expand your current system to a recent room addition, you can count on our dependable staff at Custom Mechanical. Our services are available to homeowners in Frankford, Rehoboth, Bethany Beach, Millsboro, Ocean View, Georgetown, DE, and the surrounding beach communities in Delaware and Maryland.
2015 Regulations Information
A few years ago, the Department of Energy increased the minimum efficiency of newly installed
heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment from 10 to 13 SEER. (SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.) On January 1st, 2015, the minimums will once again change - this time depending on the region in which you live. In our beautiful state, new air conditioners and heat pumps installed after January 1st will have to have a minimum rating of 14 SEER.
In addition, new standards will go into effect that will impact the design of new water heaters, making them 2 or more inches larger in diameter and height.
What does this mean for you? With the increase in efficiency being mandated, you will see an increase in the cost and size of equipment. The size difference can make for an extra degree of difficulty and additional labor when replacing the equipment (think attics with drop-down stairs, water heaters in closets and outdoor units straddling setback lines). If you know your HVAC system or water heater is due for replacement any time, it may be worth considering an earlier replacement to avoid increased equipment and labor costs associated with the higher efficiency, larger equipment.
