“Seventy-five years of business is a wonderful milestone to celebrate, which could not have been reached without all the efforts of our valued employees, customers, and channel partners,” shared Domingo Mohedano, vice president and general manager of Laars Heating Systems.
The residential and commercial boiler, and volume water heater manufacturer will be celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2023.
Laars first started in 1948 as Laars Engineering with its creation of low-mass finned copper tube heat exchangers. The company’s first success came within the swimming pool heater market that emerged in California after the Second World War.
With electrification hitting North America by storm in recent years and climate goals soon hitting deadlines, Laars has been looking to support those efforts by developing products such as heat pump technology that will “play an important role in the future of space and water heating.”
The company will be launching its Laars E-Therm commercial heat pump later this year. “This exciting new technology is based on R744 refrigerant, more commonly known as CO2, that offers superior performance in cold weather climates.” It will be able to operate in temperatures below -17 C, while outputting hot water as high as 82 C. “We are very excited about what these new technologies can bring as we strive to meet the needs of North America’s electrification targets. However, it is important to note that high-efficiency gas fired boilers and water heaters will continue to play a critical role for years to come as the electrical supply infrastructure is built out to support North America’s aggressive electrification goals,” explains Mohedano.
Laars recently phased expansion plans to its facility and is looking to hire manufacturing, technical, and support positions to further these efforts. As such, Laars recently purchased 7.6 acres of land in Rochester, New Hampshire.
“I want to thank everyone for those efforts and to also thank our loyal customers; we appreciate their support and look forward to serving them for years to come,” shares Mohedano.
