@ January 10, 2009 11:23 AM in Intelegent Advertising... A Difference between US & EuropeJohnNY ya Think? Most,maybe even all was computer generated or assisted ! To an untrained eye or someone that is not in touch with physics it looks good and is a petty cool advert. Not Intelligent from the Physics standpoint but for the Marketing :-)
@ January 10, 2009 10:16 AM in Help w/ Gas FurnaceGasvalve, Down draft,Bad thermocouple otta box,dirt in pilot assemble, just a few things..
@ January 10, 2009 9:55 AM in check out these truck paint jobs!Germany ,that's amassing that the German police/TUV allows this! As they used to have problems even with certain Paint colors on vehicles that could distract a driver ..Petty cool Advertising.
@ January 6, 2009 2:33 AM in Radiant Cooling - againTalk to easy E.. Danfoss has a control for this and did something with this! Must watch the dew point/humidity level so things do not condense and create damage or "Shrooms/ Mold Growing. He knows how to point you in the right direction. We ( BO, Eric and ME) will be meeting on Saturday and installing a Solar Cooling software program which is a all German Program at my Place and will also be looking for a "party Haus" for the ISH in Germany... Ja.
@ January 4, 2009 10:31 AM in baseboard heat noiseIt's because the piping is expanding. Someone can maybe make a Continuous Circ Based on ODR with TRV'S..
@ January 3, 2009 6:27 PM in Wilo Statos with setbackIn General how much HEAD do you need to make it FLOW in a Drainback? No Keystonen sie in Deutschland! We will be trinken Licher Bier from Lich.
@ January 3, 2009 5:03 PM in Wilo Statos with setbackMet roma this is being doen in Europe Minus though Drainback. Is there not a differential controller that switches from two circ to one circ? Coming from a None drain back guy! And Dave U R coming to the ISH ! Jaa !
@ January 3, 2009 3:47 PM in Wilo Statos with setbackOn the ECOS:"The pump automatically responds to the Night setback of the heating system by an electronic evaluation from an integrated temperature sensor." "During conditions of extreme, continuous low system heat requirement the pump will automatically switch to minimum speed. How does the Circ know ?? Do you need a programmable room stats with setback to create These "Low flow" conditions? Is this an US version because we use Thermostats and Zonevalves over here? And if so how will the "Circ" know if you are using TRV's with no "setback" So on the Stratos a Simple outdoor reset Controller that will have a open contact on drop below setpoint will activate the circ? If i just remember correct some of the "Older" Cirs from Wilo had that integrated in them? Is the interface Module the "Setpoint control? Mark, sorry but i missed some of the Presentation due to a later arrival on the last Wetstock Thanks for explaining it.Richard.
@ January 3, 2009 1:59 PM in Prestige/WiloYes maybe, I will recheck the Pressure on the expansion Tank as well, No "Gate valves" but Swing checks on the Return !
@ January 3, 2009 1:01 PM in Cold Weather Recommendations to the General Consumer (ME)Make sure that the "Orkin Man" got all them Critters, I have seen Frozen Pipes because of the Theft of Insulation from Mice or Rats.. I'd Bring the Core temp from the House up! Just in chase of a power failure.. Make sure that the LP Tank is Full and not at 15% ! Also, is there a "Cheaper" of the shelve Programmable Tsat with WWSD or outdoor influence ?? Richard
@ January 3, 2009 12:31 PM in Wilo Statos with setbackHey Steve and Mark are you bringing the Stratos with the Setback/WWSD over to the USA? If not, Why? Is there no market place in the USA? If so, When?.... Can't wait! Richard. :-)
@ January 3, 2009 12:00 PM in Prestige/WiloNo Heat is on in this Equation OR the Boiler has not fired Yet when this noise is occurring!! SO that tells me that it is Flow conditions..?? I will go back to this install next week to Experiment or Figure out what has changed and let Yuall know what i found.. Richard..
@ January 3, 2009 10:44 AM in Polypropylene ventingPerry..Yes
@ January 3, 2009 9:55 AM in Polypropylene ventingCheck Ipex, they have a Polypropylene vent system,But i am not sure if it will be available since they no longer are serving the N American market needs. Also baxi luna has PP venting piping with adapters from 3 and 4 inch to metric . Or SS can be used.. Richard
@ January 1, 2009 7:51 PM in Prestige/WiloDelta T is next to none,boiler has not even fired yet! only on circulating only.
@ January 1, 2009 3:43 PM in Prestige/WiloI "fixed" it by relocating the expansion tank to the return side, do you think that the Pump gets "Confused" when you pump towards the Expansion tank ? does it ramp up the speed to see a "Pressure/ resistance increase" just to have a Jojo effect/ knocking?
@ January 1, 2009 2:53 PM in Prestige/WiloHoppy new year to all on the wall.. A couple months have passed since i "Married" a TT prestige and a Wilo Stratos ECO and all was fine until the other day: the costumer was complaining about a noise that sounds like someone Rapping on the door! About the System: I removed the Boiler circ and replaced it for a Wilo and piped the old baseboard system(Over sized Baseboards) directly to the boiler, all preexisting Zonevalves where left.. The only thing i can see wrong which may have cause the "Knocking" is that the system was setup to "pump" into the Expansion tank. Today i hooked up a expansion tank on the return side of the Boiler and the "Knocking" noise almost disappeared. Has anybody also seen the "Knocking" noises on the Wilo Ecos in a Pumping into the expansion tank situation?? I think it has something to do with the "Smarts" of the circ..!? Richard
@ January 1, 2009 2:14 PM in \"i'd like to see them make2\"They have these in Germany and in the US Known Under COGEN http://www.senertec.de/start.htm this site may be in English to Run's on Multi gas/ fuels too.. It is a very Quiet and Low RPM "Generator" that makes Heat/ hot water/ Electricity.. Pretty cool stuff..
@ December 30, 2008 11:58 PM in ISH 2009Hi Steve, Count on us from Colorado showing up and taking you up on the beer. As a distributor (Low Energy Systems) we are very excited with the Wilo product and can't wait to see possible new products available to us. Easy E ( Low Energy Systems) aka Mr. Anderson/NEOS
@ December 30, 2008 8:25 PM in Small BoilerYou Must come to the ISH and trinken some biers and check out the newest Technology Jaa I am leaving on the 9 from Denver and am staying Thur the 18th to check out and Party in Heimart.. Maybe you shall come too !then you can see the small boilers on display and be Light years ahead of the rest.. I do like Viessmann and TT but you maybe know that allready..Richard
@ December 30, 2008 7:59 PM in Small BoilerTT 60 and domestic with an Indirect Is this on an remodel? and if so how old is the waterheaster? GC's do not know Heat!so who are they to tell us what to do and charge .I make them "Go away" all of the time and am Still Busy fixing all of the "Underbiders" problems! do not worry just do what is right
