@ February 16, 2014 8:00 PM in clanking soundsThe neighbor had his valve replaced. I'll bet they jacked the radiator, and lost its pitch.
@ February 15, 2014 7:45 AM in New furnace started kicking after a season of quietPut a carbon monoxide detector in that basement.
@ February 13, 2014 5:44 PM in 2# gas line for 600, 000 BTU'sYou have plenty of available gas.Order what you need (within the limitations of the meter), and the gas fitter will sort it out. If you have a regulated manifold, he may have to upsize the regulator, but it's all do-able.
@ February 13, 2014 3:34 PM in 2# gas line for 600, 000 BTU'slike you have 1/2 lb. in the house. For instance, I have 5 lbs up to my meter, and 1/2lb coming into the house. I have to size to 1/2 lb.
@ February 13, 2014 2:18 PM in Meet The CozyHave you ever taken apart a really old mechanism, and been amazed at how "beautifully simple" the design was? That's what you're striving for. I know it's not always possible, but you want people to look at your work, and say,"why didn't I think of that"?
@ February 13, 2014 10:52 AM in Meet The CozyIt makes more sense. I can't tell from the pictures where they reside though. And what about when they room is not calling for heat(no fan)?
@ February 13, 2014 10:39 AM in Meet The CozyThink they live in, and pull heated air. You're pulling cooler air to cool the PC components. Different application. I think.
@ February 13, 2014 10:31 AM in 2# gas line for 600, 000 BTU'sThis should give you the basics of how to size it. You should be able to get a 2lb. chart online. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPjEllrv0Bs
P.S. Provided the instructor doesn't put you to sleep. Mr. Monotone himself!
@ February 13, 2014 9:46 AM in Meet The CozyHave you had issues with heat and electronics? How are you not burning up fan motors? Are components field servicable, and reasonably priced? Does it pass the "Mom" test? Could my mother, easily replace any component?
@ February 12, 2014 9:52 PM in Meet The CozySeems like a good product, that I was completely turned off to, by the soliciting of donations.Donate your money to a homeless shelter, so they might be able to put oil in the tank. Sorry, trying to keep it real.
@ February 12, 2014 2:09 PM in Is this main circulator grossly undersized?Is 40000 btus for 3/4" pipe. So, your zone would appear to be grossly over-sized. You might want to rethink zone distribution before circ sizing. When you start daisy-chaining many emitters, you have to allow for the DT, and add emitters accordingly downstream. I'm sure the pros will elaborate on this, I am just a homeowner.
@ February 2, 2014 7:26 AM in Hot water baseboard heatingOver 500 posts and nothing is getting solved because the ABC's keep getting jumbled. Start a new post, because that is where this one is anyway.

@ January 26, 2014 10:53 AM in New questions about monoflo systemIs there an actual problem, or are you just attempting to understand you system? "Problematic" implies the potential to create a problem, and might not actually create a problem in your lifetime.
@ January 25, 2014 7:45 PM in Monoflo systemThe loops that have been cut and capped have to be piped as bypass. Cutting and capping adds huge restriction to the system.Standard installation put the diveter tee on the return. For more flow, put the tee on the supply. For maximum flow, and down-flow, use 2 tees.
@ January 25, 2014 7:30 PM in Please confirm rad types6 and 11 are tube type. The others are column.
@ January 24, 2014 2:32 PM in NG spot pricing this weekHere in CT, electrical deregulation, was suppose to give consumers, a break, by allowing them to chose a generation company that provided lower rates. You are still locked into the company that owns the wires and poles that supply your home for "Distribution". Then they allowed the companies to double their rate for distribution, and charge based on KW/H for distribution. Boy, did they take care of us!!!
@ January 24, 2014 2:01 PM in monoflo convection rads house 65 DegreesKeep us posted. There have been a couple other (twin) posts, just like yours.Same conditions...mono flow, replaced b&g 100.
@ January 24, 2014 1:44 PM in monoflo convection rads house 65 DegreesIt belongs on the supply. I'd leave it there.Still got the 100 series? I think its housing is only 1/8" longer, flange to flange. If nothing else, it would confirm the problem.Better question...did you have the foresight to use isolation flanges or valves with the new circ?
@ January 24, 2014 1:24 PM in monoflo convection rads house 65 Degreesit worked before. The Taco 0010 pump curve is very close to the b&g 100series.I think all the "00" series housings are the same, but you could drop an e-mail to Taco, to be sure.
@ January 24, 2014 12:32 PM in monoflo convection rads house 65 DegreesThe 100 series at 6 ft/hd is pumping 20 gpm. The 007 at 6 ft/hd is pumping 13 gpm. I don't know how to calculate which circ would be best for your application. I'm sure there are some people here that would be capable, but the calculations are like a different language for me.The calculations change depending on the position and quantity of tees.
@ January 24, 2014 11:33 AM in monoflo convection rads house 65 DegreesWhat is the hi-limit set to on the boiler?
