KATIE EUGLEY EARNS AGING- IN- PLACE CERTIFICATION

KATIE EUGLEY EARNS AGING- IN- PLACE CERTIFICATION

MCES Estimating & Sales Assistant Katie Eugley has completed the educational and experience requisites for the Aging in Place Specialist Certification through the National Association of Home Builders. This Nationally recognized certification program was developed to help professionals accommodate the needs of the senior population. Because we are living longer, the trend to live independently at home by postponing or even avoiding institutional living has grown exponentially. Because the bathroom is the number one obstacle to the safe living at home, the importance of planning and incorporating safety modifications during a routine bathroom update or remodel cannot be overly emphasized. The most compelling information supporting this growing concept commonly known as Aging in Place is that these home safety modifications rarely cost more than the equivalent of just four to six weeks in an assisted living facility. And, accessibility modifications, properly done, may very well add to the resale value of a residence.

Katie is the second Certified Aging in Place Professional on the MCES staff. She joins sales manager Gina Philippon who earned her certification in 2016. Katie & Gina’s advanced training elevates the level of proficiency at MCES by allowing them to look at a space and re-design it into safe, functional and stylish environments that MCES customers will be happy and comfortable in for years to come. Katie says that her favorite part of the training was the design aspect, and says that “now when I enter a customers’ home, I know exactly what to look for and how to accomplish it.” For more information & ideas relating to bathroom safety modifications, please call MCES at 1-800-890-7196.

AMERICAN STANDARD Front & Center

AMERICAN STANDARD is now front and center at Mid-coast Energy Systems!

American Standard self cleaning toilet

Mid-Coast Energy Systems is proud to announce that we will soon display American Standard plumbing products in our Damariscotta showroom. We have and will continue to install all brands of plumbing fixtures and faucets but we will have the American Standard products prominently on display with certain product lines in stock for immediate installation.

American Standard has had an unmatched legacy of quality and innovation for over 140 years and has raised the standard by constantly improving the quality and style of their products. As a leading North American plumbing products manufacturer, American Standard produces superior performing and stylish fixtures, faucets, sinks and tubs for the kitchen and bath. They have a wide variety of styles and finishes that are available to fit any taste or décor from traditional and transitional to contemporary.

What does this mean for you? It means that if you have an emergency or require an immediate faucet or toilet replacement, we will have the product in stock and available to you. It also means that if you are in need of an upgrade to a single fixture, a total room renovation or are outfitting a complete home, MCES will have access to the American Standard wholesale distribution network with multiple location warehouses around New England and the eastern United States for those products. Whether you choose items from our showroom display, from our inventory or special order a specific style or finish, product should be available within your time frame.

EXCLUSIVE AMERICAN STANDARD ITEMS:

Many of the American Standard bathroom sink faucets feature their exclusive Speed Connect™ metal pop-up drain with fewer parts than most pop-up drains. This drain system eliminates the aggravation of floppy pop-up rods that never seal well, don’t pop-up well and leak.

The exclusive Vormax™ flusing system cleans the bowl 2X better than conventional toilets. It cleans so well that you can say good-bye to marks and streaks for good.

The exclusive super smooth mirror like EverClean™ surface is easier to keep clean, even after years of use. That means you spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying life.

If cleaning the toilet is not your thing, then the ActiClean® toilet is for you. With the press of a button, the exclusive ActiClean® solution is released into the bowl for either a quick clean or a deep clean cycle. The result is a freshly scented sparkling clean bowl.

Our new American Standard display is expected to be set up and available for viewing in early June 2017. Stop by the showroom to see what American Standard products you would like to have in your home.
