@ October 19, 2013 11:40 AM in Dangerous Condition??That is a draft diverter, there should be no flue gas spillage out of it.
@ October 19, 2013 9:48 AM in Boiler adviceI agree,the mod portion of mod/con is more important than condensing all the time. That being said.most fin tube applications can condense a vast majority of the time
@ October 9, 2013 3:17 PM in System 2000 EK1 simple questionnaire on vibrationThat's why they give you the 8 in 1 with the boiler.
@ October 5, 2013 3:55 PM in Triangle Prestige ExcellenceDo quite a few Excellence with very good results,same with Viessmann,although I have no first hand experience with the Combi plus.
@ October 4, 2013 5:25 PM in Buderus Logamatic worth it on new gas boiler? Compare vs programmable thermostats?The Buderus GC124 comes with an AquaSmart control that takes a low cost wireless ODR module,doesn't have all the functions of the 2107 but does ODR real cheap and easy!

@ September 17, 2013 6:22 PM in Should I switch to gas ?You're not looking very hard,free audits for almost all NYS residents through GJGNY.
@ September 17, 2013 8:14 AM in High Efficiency Wall Hung ReliabilityThose are tankless water heaters masquerading as boilers,whose main selling point is price.
@ September 17, 2013 8:11 AM in Should I switch to gas ?But regardless of the envelope of the house,gas is 35% cheaper than oil. Most oil boilers are antiquated and going to a mod/con or even an 85% gas boiler with ODR will yield huge savings,in the 60-80% range. Unless the house is a sieve,no amount of weatherization will produce savings in that range. Of course the prudent thing would be to both weatherize and update heating equipment,whether gas or oil.
@ September 10, 2013 8:25 PM in stainless vs stone lined on long island(Mr O' Brien)The stainless both in gauge and construction is in a league of it's own ( so is the price!) I think it would fare very well here
@ September 10, 2013 8:24 PM in stainless vs stone lined on long island(Mr O' Brien)We use a lot of Buderus S120 with zero problems,no experience with Vaughn but have heard good things about them. Stainless doesn't seem to hold up on LI for some reason,chlorides,I've been told
@ September 2, 2013 10:57 PM in Copper piping for oil fillNFPA 31 doesn't allow it, Brookhaven Town does.
@ August 29, 2013 12:59 PM in Quietest Boiler ?Any gas mod/con is almost silent. With oil,System 2000 is quietest chimney vented. Firebird is quietest direct vent
@ August 24, 2013 9:26 AM in The Hydronic Formula and it's limitations"
Anyone else ever seen the elusive ideal 20 degree drop in the field under normal operating conditions?
While we are on the subject, how many people have seen a properly sized bang bang boiler operating at 100% of capacity at design condition?
I think they are both directly related and are reality staring us in the face:-)"
