ART installed a radiant heat system in our Ballard home this summer. We put a new basement in with underfloor heating and wall panel radiators in the two upper stories of the house. Paul and Sheldon and their crew were the absolute best contractors I have ever employed. Very professional: they clearly described the benefits of their technology, the options available, and delivered on schedule with the best quality work. Paul is very knowledgeable about all aspects of construction and remodeling and helped us avoid mistakes outside his scope of work. He really cared about the overall quality and integrity of the entire project, not just his part. ART provided service well beyond what I imagined was available and I would recommend them without reservation to anyone as a firm setting a standard of excellence in all respects.

"It is often said that you get what you pay for. Well with Paul I've gotten that and a whole lot more. The quality of materials, workmanship, timeliness, and supervision have always been outstanding. I feel that I am able to concentrate on other aspects of the job knowing that the heating system is taken care of. Paul is direct, honest, knowledgeable, and is the only heating contractor I use for my high end jobs. My reputation depends on the quality and integrity of my subcontractors, and with Paul I know that it will always be enhanced."

"I have enjoyed my association with Paul Pollets for several years now. His expertise with regards to radiant floor systems as well as his enthusiasm and helpfulness has been of great assistance to me and the many customers I have steered in the direction of radiant heat."
Steve Myrvang, A.V.A.
"Advanced Radiant Technology installed a new boiler and indirect water tank and eight radiators for us in the summer of 1999. We were impressed with their organization, from start to finish. It is very obvious that they take pride in their workmanship and are personally motivated to do the job right. And when unexpected issues arose that fell outside their normal services, they went the extra mile for us. We really enjoyed working with Advanced Radiant and would recommend them to anyone."

Paul and I go back many years and plenty of miles to when we were both young in New York and our fathers were both in the plumbing-and-heating supply business. Growing up in this business is a fine way to get to know what works and what doesn't work because you're exposed to so many smart (and not so smart) people. Paul learned his hydronics in a place where hot-water heating began. He cut his teeth on steam and those early hot-water systems that make most pros around the country scratch their heads. He took his hard-won hydronic Liberal Arts education and added to it a Masters Degree in radiant heating. Paul was there at the start of the modern radiant era. He helped mold the industry by his writings and talks to trade groups. He has always made more sense than most and I have learned so much from him. And not just about the art of heating, but also about the art of treating people well in business. Paul Pollets is a mensch and his father would be proud of him. You can do no better than this guy.

You live and breathe hydronic heating and are always talking about serving your customers' interests. Your passion and reputation for your work, combined with concern for customers, should take you a long way in the business world.

ART renovated our heating system in N. Ballard in 2005. We installed a new Viessmann boiler system with radiant heating and wall panel radiators. The quality of the workmanship was superior and reminded me of the systems I grew up with in Germany. Paul’s expertise in system design and installation technique were keenly evident throughout the process. Our home is very comfortable and we never run out of hot water!
