Willington Animal Control – Pet Lovers Making a Difference!

Willington Animal Control is a municipal animal law enforcement department and a shelter. They take in stray dogs, advertise them, and if not claimed seek suitable homes for each dog in our facility.

Their mission is to minimize euthanasia of animals by promoting the facility’s pets for adoption in as many ways as possible. To accomplish this, they also help other shelters and rescues manage their pets, adoptions and fosters.

Recently, the Willington Animal Control facility installed a new infrared heating system to save the town money and keep the animals comfortable throughout winter.

Why Willington Animal Control Chose Infrared Heat?

Radiant heat is like bringing the sun indoors, heating people and objects not just the air. You actually feel warmer at lower temperatures, resulting in huge savings. Because of this, infrared is often used in facilities where there is a lot of outside air to contend with. When there is a lot of outside air, other forms of heating systems fall short of both owner and customer satisfaction. A properly designed infrared system offers owners the most cost saving and energy efficient heating system available.

Infrared offers a variety of styles to choose from! Infrared heaters are available from low intensity tubes to high intensity open flame. The tubes are available in straight and “U” configuration, power vented and fully reflector covered for maximum efficiency. A single stage, 10 ft tube delivers 45,000 MBH of heating comfort to the animal containment area.

Combustion Research uses radiant tubing constructed entirely out of power coated, corrosion resistant aluminized steel (also available in stainless steel). This guarantees protection against internally created corrosion for 10 years.

Additional Savings Available!

Earn fuel savings of up to 30-to-50% over conventional heating with infrared heat! Floors, objects and people retain the heat and feel warmer at lower temperature settings. There is an infrared system for every application and every fuel, natural gas, oil and propane.

Rebate assistance for its energy saving is also available and offered to those who install it. As an Energize CT Partner, we offer contractors assistance for their customers who want to file for rebates for infrared heat.
