@ February 17, 2008 10:30 AM in Invision Forum TestThe invision emergency broadcast system. If this were a real test, you would receive information on there to go and what to do. Since the test is real,.....What the Heck do we do now? We are always up to a test....Since most of us did NOT ignore it, do we fail the test? If we responded to it, what is our final test score and will this count against us since most tests make up 2/3 of our final grade! Was a #2 pencil required?, and if so where they provided cause I didn't get one. Can I take the test over? So many questions, but I for one try to answer as many questions as possible provided I'm Not Ignored,,.....Testing, Is this thing ON? Mike T.
@ February 17, 2008 10:18 AM in PSI/Boiler on the 6th floor?That's what I thought. It's on the 6th floor on the comm. building. Mike T.
@ February 17, 2008 9:47 AM in PSI/Boiler on the 6th floor?Since the top floor is the 6th floor is it a good Idea to put at least 12psi on the system? Would not want the pump to suction to ever go beyond 0psi to a negative number. Any help would be appreciated. Primary secondary set up with boilers set at aprox. 20 psi. Mike T.
@ February 17, 2008 7:07 AM in wiring a utica boilerGo to the Uticaboilers.com and find what you need. I don't know why the equipment didn't come with the correct Installation and service manuals. Use a separate t-former to power your HW zone and also the LWCO if you are using a Guard Dawg type. It is critical that you get this right for safety reasons. I'm sure any other company would be glad to give you advise. It is dangerous for us to give advise since we don't even know all that you have on the job sight. Mike T.
@ February 11, 2008 6:10 AM in april air 700 installThe only reason I said that is there is almost never enough room to get her on the plenum. At least around here. I will not mount to a cased coil either. These units take forever to raise envelope humidity and at least the installs on the returns have worked. Mike T.
@ February 10, 2008 9:50 AM in april air 700 installInstall it on the return duct. Looks better. Also take a look at the 600 model, I think they work better. Mike T.
@ February 5, 2008 9:07 PM in Gas pipe sizeI see you thoughts and I think you meant 14"W.C. not ounces pressure gauge....:-) This set up sounds like an Octopus. 1 Cu..ft" = 1000 BTU/HR @ Specific gravity of 0.06. Altitude can change this factor. but in general if you are firing 270M, you need "X" factor coming in to satisfy your load. Length is critical in that where is everything taken off from?. 3/4" line for 270M NO WAY...... Mike T.
@ February 5, 2008 8:49 PM in Boiler Sizing with IndirectThe only "Fudge factor to be used is if,....Well you know how the average degree day's is say, 20* and you get the cold snap from hel;,......-5* for a week, that's the only consideration as far as the buffer zone goes.
@ February 1, 2008 4:59 PM in Indirect Water HeatingMay I ask what the application is for such a beast?... Mike T.
@ January 31, 2008 5:17 PM in digital t-statBut is the wire an issue? Especially the old fabric covered stuff. Jump as you said then check your circuit loaded and also disconnect to see it you are actually getting the 22 to 26 VAC at the load. Mike T
@ January 31, 2008 5:12 PM in HeatingDidn't the Peerless used to have the stainless steel deflector plat above the ignitor? Just thinking... Mike T.
@ January 31, 2008 5:08 PM in Wild WeatherI hear Ya, we got that in Buffalo, on Wednesday. Looking for another bout tonight into tomorrow. Mike T.
@ January 30, 2008 7:55 AM in The greatest moment of my lifeRay now you will be able to tell who put crackers in the VCR slot when he learns to walk and plays with everything...:-) Go easy on him. Mike T.
@ January 29, 2008 5:44 PM in MOTORIZED DAMPERIt HAS to be inter locked with all Fuel consumption equipment. Car dealerships for example. We see them all the time. Mike T
@ January 29, 2008 5:40 PM in The Buffalo TheoryI do a pretty good imitation of Cliff Claven and I laughed through the whole thing....................You forgot to mention, right after that Vera calls Norm and asks Norm, "when are you coming home", reply,...When I smarten up. Mike T.
@ January 29, 2008 5:32 PM in Magnets on feedwater linesI am still researching the claims that are set fourth about these magnets. So far nothing that gives me the, "I believe in it" feeling. I can see the potential for water systems, but the claims of better and less Nat. gas consumption I have a hard time believing..... Their claim for gas is more complete combustion??? WHAT?... That's what I said. It is what it is. Mike T.
@ January 28, 2008 7:54 AM in High Head Pressure?Welcome back Eugene. I see a lot of this nonsense and it's usually due to the customer telling the A/C company where they MUST GO!. I'll be there is a lot of recirc. going on and would not be surprised if there was an awning above them.....:-) Not to mention the service access. Mike T.
@ January 28, 2008 6:41 AM in Boiler Going Into LockoutThat is what I was taught. Excessive readings can result from other problems that I described.' Mike T.
@ January 27, 2008 6:38 PM in Boiler Going Into LockoutCheck the Phasing on the incoming Voltage. Micro-Amps seem a little excessive.
@ January 27, 2008 8:11 AM in gas control valve/ ignitorPilot is dirty....Is it spark to pilot? The orifice inside the pilot burner has to be cleaned annually. I hope it's not the dreaded WR mercury switch type:-) Mike T.
@ January 19, 2008 1:43 PM in freidrich PTACsSince they are only about 3 to 6 KW, and the hotel Voltage is 277 which, by the way hurts when Zapped,... Hurts..:-) . Anyone can contest the design of any piece of equip. and since it's a package unit, don't fret. That's like installing a RTU and having it burst into flames due to questionable design. There's nothing to worry about till there's something to worry about. At least that's what Grand Pa.. used to say. Mike T.
@ January 19, 2008 11:53 AM in Does anyone remember???There used to be a mag. that took a real close up pic of some kind of control and you had to figure out what it was. The pic was usually a tell-tail sigh of what, but being so close up you had to pic your brain as to what the control or part was. I always enjoyed that, but haven't seen it in quite a while... Mike T.
