@ May 16, 2013 3:54 PM in Burnham has a sense of humor!While I agree,venting is sometimes a challenge,I've almost never seen a job where it couldn't be done. Disclaimer- we don't work in urban areas
@ May 16, 2013 3:51 PM in Burnham has a sense of humor!Same here, although the phone was less but it was $1.00/minute or portion of. Made for very abbreviated conversations,even so the bill was over $1K/mo and worth every penny!
@ May 16, 2013 3:42 PM in Eco Propertyin the literal sense. It's been my experience that people don't find energy saving improvements fun or enjoyable unlike a new car or 80" LCD. This is probably the most exhaustive study on selling efficiency
@ May 16, 2013 3:35 PM in Rusty bolts on the tankless water heating blankI can't resist this softball. Pros don't put in boilers with blank plates,or pin boilers w/o a tankless installed. Is it cold start or are you shutting it off in non heating season? The OEM gasket leaves a lot to be desired,change to a real gasket and use stainless or brass studs and nuts with never seize in place of the bolts,makes tightening a snap,and not literally! :)
@ May 16, 2013 12:21 PM in Eco PropertyWould watch a show where,say a boiler/water heater and insulation were upgraded? Not very sexy!
@ May 16, 2013 9:00 AM in Burnham has a sense of humor!Do we cater to the lowest denominator or raise the bar? Modcons aren't the answer for every job but the decision should be based on an informed judgement!

@ May 14, 2013 12:45 PM in Plumbing Forum?While I understand the different sections concept,I miss the old days of just one Wall,where you never knew what the topics at hand would be. I learned a lot about things I never thought I was interested in!

Please be nice; don't discuss pricing, and don't post advertisements. Thanks."
@ May 9, 2013 8:50 AM in Opinions Wanted!!I prefer Buderus, Biasi or Viessmann and many others are fine too!
@ May 8, 2013 8:44 AM in Time to choose a boilerthat don't require highly skilled installation,brand takes a back seat to the installer. We are on LI,I prefer Viessmann and Tringle Tube

@ May 6, 2013 2:56 PM in Burnham has a sense of humor!" Can I use an Alpine boiler as a
replacement boiler for an older
heating system with large radiators?
The Alpine boiler will work in this type of
installation, however, achieving optimum system
efficiencies is generally associated with lower
water volume systems (see above). Additionally,
depending upon the home, it may be impractical
to vent a boiler directly to outside air without
using a chimney. In this type of installation, it is
possible that other Burnham brand boilers, such
as the ES2, Series 2, or Series 3 may be a better
option. A consultation with a professional home
heating contractor will provide the best answer"
Who writes this stuff? With P/S or a LLH,which you would need with either a mod/con or CI boiler on a high volume system,flow through the boiler is constant,who cares how much volume system has? The mod/con has the advantage in these applications,it's condensing all the time!
