@ June 19, 2013 9:59 AM in Triple Aquatat RElayIt's a 120V thermostat, needs to be rewired and very often there aren't two dedicated wires to thermostat and it requires a RIB relay. Very common here on LI,almost unheard of elsewhere,at least we have good pizza! :)
@ June 19, 2013 8:52 AM in Triple Aquatat RElayDo you have 120v thermostat? Very common on LI.
@ June 16, 2013 11:22 AM in How the Europeans do it?I agree,the average plumber has no capability to service boilers,most have problems piping them correctly! I await the above average plumbers wrath! :)
@ June 16, 2013 11:19 AM in How the Europeans do it?"Apparently chimney sweeps and their monopoly were brought in in 1935 by Hitler as he could use them as spies for the government while they performed their task cleaning chimney's in exchange for their set wages and job security.
It's too bad we don't take clean air, or safety, as seriously as they do."
@ June 11, 2013 7:50 AM in How the Europeans do it?Can you imagine American parents of 14 year olds being told their precious darlings aren't smart enough to attend a university and must go to trade school? Germany exports more than the USA with 1/50th the land mass,1/4th he population and a tiny fraction of the natural resources. But we top them in self esteem! :)
@ June 7, 2013 9:08 PM in Suffox County,NY codesOn LI the AHJ is a town, village or city, not county. But to answer your question, no to both to the best of my knowledge. BTW, why would you mount a circ at floor level?
@ June 5, 2013 6:59 PM in Pretty SadThere's a local ACCA or PHCC chapter that would help out?
@ May 30, 2013 2:29 PM in Heating Help Please...Is it a counterflow furnace(ducts in slab?) Is there an attic above the entire living space?
@ May 28, 2013 5:13 PM in New Vitodens boilersI agree,we pretty much do all replacement work and all single temp. Not knocking the 200 but for these types jobs,I much prefer the 100. Other than the Lambda Pro,I don't feel like you're missing much with a 100 vs 200 on a typical 2 zone baseboard job
@ May 26, 2013 12:32 PM in New Vitodens boilersA Vitodens 200 and indirect for price of Excellence?

Not a huge penalty going from 80 to 105 with an Alpine,the bottom end is 16K on the 80 and 21K on the 105. Ever wonder why Nat Grid offers rebates on Burnham and no one else?
@ May 20, 2013 9:08 AM in The good old days and a Boiler ExplosionI'm always amazed by the quality of the writing in older newspapers and journals,vastly superior to what you see today and a sad commentary on the literacy of the nation!
@ May 19, 2013 4:12 PM in Longest lasting indirectsis that almost everyone has had issues with one brand or another at one time. Seems like a simple concept,a coil in a tank or a tank in a tank,yet so many problems!

Well deserved,thanks for all you do!
@ May 19, 2013 1:26 PM in I have noticed more and more shotty workNot to be a wise ass,but it's shoddy.

@ May 17, 2013 8:26 AM in Longest lasting indirectsThat's why I like the S-120, the tapping locations! :) The S-120 is discontinued and is being replaced by S32, pretty much the same except not in blue, white only
