@ December 8, 2013 9:16 AM in System 2000 controlerYou don't need multiple Techs,just one good one. Put a Genisys on if you don't already have one,it keeps a history that will aid greatly in troubleshooting. Is it 2 pipe or one? If 2 pipe,convert to 1 pipe. Nothing good happens with 2 pipe systems. Does it have a puff switch? Draft issues will cause random lockouts on puff switch equipped boilers
@ December 7, 2013 6:05 PM in Cast iron or steel oil burner?The only steel boiler I would consider is an EK,go with a 3 pass CI,something like this
@ December 2, 2013 5:40 PM in Beckett 7505 120V GeniSys ControlIt needs to be powered constantly. You need 3 wires,L1,L2 and Limit. If you have an oil valve,program in 5 seconds of post purge,you'll see a big difference in the cleanliness of boiler
@ November 23, 2013 7:05 PM in Powervent shuts off after running for 1 minuteI agree 100%,it's not wired properly,turn it off until it's fixed
@ November 23, 2013 7:03 PM in Condensing gas boiler you installI don't have gas in my house unfortunately,but if I did,I'd use one of these two. Why sell something you don't believe in yourself? I base this on seven years experience with mod/cons and quite a few service calls on the brands we don't install. I eliminate Gianonni based boilers out of hand,I know others feel differently,but I'm just not convinced. I also am skeptical about aluminum HX,we did a Bosch Greenstar a couple months ago with no issues and Bosch may make me revisit this issue. Local support is huge and while I'm not disparaging the others support, Chris Madeira from RAL Supply is outstanding with Viessmann support as well as Wales Darby the local rep. Same with TT,Bob Chapman and Billy Gluckin are both fantastic. My opinion,FWIW

@ October 23, 2013 6:31 PM in Press Tools - Ridgid vs MilwaukeeHave 2 corded and 2 cordless,no problems
@ October 22, 2013 7:10 PM in aquastat settingA minimum of 20* less on the B aquastat,in reality with that POS you don't even need it!
@ October 20, 2013 9:43 AM in Dangerous Condition??and suggest we go old school and actually use a draft gauge or combustion analyzer with pressure function? Not as accurate as the smoke or toilet paper tests,I know, but worth a shot! And of course this would need to be done in steady state with all doors closed and anything that could create a negative pressure running, dryers,bath fans,kitchen fans etc
@ October 19, 2013 11:40 AM in Dangerous Condition??That is a draft diverter, there should be no flue gas spillage out of it.
