Geothermal Heat Pump System (Heating and Cooling)
Using a Geothermal Heat Pump System, your home, cottage or business can have heating and cooling provided from the same system. This system uses the ground, rather than the air outside to heat or cool your home.
GeoSmart Energy has provided excellent information and reasons to use a Geothermal System.
In Floor Heating
JJ McLellan & Son, your In-Floor Heating Specialists! Looking for an alternative way to heat your basement, shop or garage? Does walking into your bathroom or kitchen on the cold linoleum or ceramic tile make you shiver? In-floor heating is a practical alternative for your heating options to warm up those tiles or cozy up your basement. In-Floor Heating is the ideal solution for heat within a garage, shop or basement as the In-Floor will always keep the cement floor at a consistent temp, therefore taking the chill off that you would normally feel in these areas, without having to blast the heat (and your utility bill!).
Forced Air Heat, Hydronic Radiant Heat, Hydronic Boiler
Forced Air Heat – Benefits of this heating system is you can have your furnace, air conditioner, humidifier and HRV (heat recovery ventilation) as a complete home comfort system. A forced air system also provides a home with proper air circulation through cold-air returns registers and warm-air ducts and registers.
Hydronic Radiant Heat – Also known as In-Floor Heating (see above)
Hydronic Boiler Heat – A hydronic (water) boiler is a great option for a home owner with electric heat to upgrade to gas service. The boiler heats the water which then runs through the radiators in each room. We would advise also having an HRV installed to ensure proper air circulation throughout the home.

We have a variety of literature offering various taps, sinks, toilets, showers, tubs and vanity’s.

Enjoy the appearance and instant heat from a fireplace without the work of cutting and carrying wood.
Backflow Water Prevention
Back flow Water Prevention is a mechanical device that prevents water from re-entering your business or home’s water systems and back-ups or flooding of water or sewage from occurring in your basement.
Camera and Power Flusher for Sewers, Drains & Wells
JJ McLellan is equipped with a full service camera system to view and detect problems in a sewer line and also a complete system to view and detect problems within water lines, drains or wells. With our power flusher we can clear the line of any debris which may be causing your back up. The camera can be used before or after to locate the blockage, however once the debris is cleared the camera will be then used to determine the cause of the backup and blockage.
Central Air Conditioning
Feeling the heat of the summer? Sick of the loud roar of the window air conditioner? An ENERGY STAR qualified Central Air Conditioner will cool your home, keeping you relaxed and comfortable, even when your utility bill arrives! Maximizing your comfort, while minimizing your energy costs!
Water Treatment Systems
Water Softeners will offer your home many benefits for the water system in your home. By removing the hardness from the water it will prolong the life of your hot water heater, washing machine and dishwasher. Soft water is also a natural conditioner for your clothes, hair and skin, being softer, gentle and producing much more lather with less soap!
Ultraviolet Disinfection uses UV Lights to disinfect the water without adding any chemicals.
Reverse Osomosis will remove or reduce sodium, lead, aluminum, copper, mercury, asbestos, sulfates, algae, phosphates, pesiticides, arsenic, nitrates, chlorine, detergents, syanide, THM’s, PCB’s, heavy metals, sediment and bromide from drinking water.
HydroFLOW is a chemical free way to treat your water which removes and prevents limescale. With this system you can cut your heating costs and conserve energy, improves heat transfer efficiency and extends the life of your valuable equipment.
We can assist you with all your pressure system needs for submersible or jet pumps and pressure tanks. There are a variety of types of pumps as well as sizes to suit your needs, such as Shallow Well Jet Pumps, Convertible Jet Pumps – which can be used on a shallow or deep well for your house, farm or cottage; Jet Pumps for Deep Wells – these are surface mounted, specifically designed to deliver high capacities at greater pressures for your home, farm or cottage; 4” Submersible Pumps – below ground pumps which are designed for residential and small municipal water supply and light irrigation applications; 5” and larger Submersible Pumps – also below ground pumps designed to move larger amounts of water for irrigation and municipal water supply.
If you have a rural home, business or cottage you are most likely using a septic system. A septic system is a sewage system for the home, business or cottage which has a holding tank and tile bed. The holding tank is where the solids remain and the bed is where the liquid is dispersed. Ontario Rural Wastewater Centre and the Ministry of the Environment has created a pamphlet which provides information on “Your Septic System”
http://www.ene.gov.on.ca/publications/6369e.pdf). We are now a distributor for Norweco Septic Systems with qualified installer’s & service tech’s.
Septic Pumping & Vacuum Services
Septic Tank Pumping & Vacuum Services – As of Spring 2010 we are now offering our customers Septic Tank Pumping Services.
We are equipped with a Case Backhoe and Freightliner Dump Truck to provide our customers with the proper equipment for any size job, which requires digging, trucking away dirt and debris or brining in stone/gravel or dirt.
Indoor Air Quality – HRV System
The quality of air we breathe in our home is essential for our good health. Some common issues are biological pollutants such as mould, bacteria and dust mites; and chemical pollutants such as gases (carbon monoxide) and particles that come from combustion appliances, tobacco smoke, household and personal care products, various building materials and outdoor air. With the use of a ventilation and filtration system the air is continuously circulated and refreshed. The most commonly used ventilation system is a Heat Recovery Ventilator or HRV. This system discharges excess humidity from the home, which prevents potential health and moisture problems (especially in bathrooms, the kitchen and the basement). An HRV replaces the stale indoor air with fresh clean air from the outdoors. During transfer the outdoor air is filtered before entering and the indoor air pollutants are expelled to the outdoors.
Our plumbers and gas technicians are experienced with electric or gas (propane and natural gas) water heater installations. We offer competitive rates with “rent to own” purchase options to meet the needs of all of our customers. We can offer competitive new installation purchase prices or low monthly payments combined with a 10 year parts and labour warranty! Why rent and pay all that money for years when it could be paid for upfront or in affordable monthly payments both options include a 10 year parts and labour warranty AND … YOU own the equipment!
Did you know the average lifespan of a water heater is typically the length of the warranty – thats with no maintenance – with maintenance it can last much longer. However over the years lime will build up inside which will cover the sides of the tank, decreasing (over time) the interior of the tank and forcing the water heater to use more energy to heat the water.
