Upgrade Productivity

If you’re looking to upgrade your equipment, CIC Pittsburgh can recommend and implement modifications and upgrades to increase efficiency and productivity and to bring your furnaces into compliance with the most current standards.

CIC Pittsburgh realizes that sometimes the purchasing of new equipment is cost-prohibitive. Let us show you how we can upgrade an existing furnace or bring it back to the original specifications. CIC Pittsburgh will study your application and offer you our best advice on upgrade or repair.  Examples of upgrades include pulse-firing, heat recovery systems, or new control systems.

Testimonials

"Thank you for sending Paul in to replace the kettle control panel. He is knowledgeable, methodical and meticulous, all of which are so important when working on electrical. You can tell he takes great pride in his work just by looking inside the panel. It is organized, labeled and easy to understand. I will really appreciate tracing the circuit to troubleshoot any future issues because it will take ¼ the time to find the issues, which results in less downtime. KUDOS to Paul!!! He did an excellent job and I welcome him back at any time."
