Design Services


Design ServicesSince 1964, AEF Sales has worked with the leading consulting engineers and architects in the metropolitan New York area. Our heat tracing experience insures that the designs we provide will serve the intended function, meet applicable codes, and will stand up to the real world tests of construction and maintenance.


We can respond quickly to provide extensive and complete heater cable designs that meet the needs of clients and end users. Design work is informed by over 40 years of job site experience and followed up by field supervision as required to properly train installers and provide technical support needed for a successful heat tracing project.


Founded by a licensed professional engineer, AEF Sales takes pride in the long term relationships developed with consultants. Our philosophy is to put “specmanship” aside and focus on the needs of the end users.



Field Services


Field ServicesThe factory trained heat trace sales force spends as much time at job sites as they do in offices and conference rooms. On projects where AEF Sales had participated in the original design work, we bring the thought processes of the original design stage to the construction site and help insure that the original design goals are kept even as field conditions evolve over the course of construction.


We also can provide field design services for existing installations. Field measurements are made and complete designs provided based on site conditions. Isometric drawings and follow up field support when products are being installed make for a trouble free and long useful life of the heat tracing systems.




Turnkey Installation


TurnkeyAEF Sales has always provided field technical support as an important part of any successful heat tracing project. Working closely with mechanical and electrical contractors selected by the general contractor or facility owner has been an ongoing commitment since 1964.


For customers requiring a sole source of responsibility for a heat tracing project, AEF Sales can also provide a complete package including heater design and materials. Experienced electrical and insulation installers working under contract to and under the supervision of AEF Sales allow us to control every aspect of the project.
