Heat loads

@ January 9, 2014 6:52 PM in Heat loads

on every job we do a heat load. But with this recent cold spell , we had a few problems. We had a house or two only get to 62 * F , both with condensing boilers, First one we were running the curve to top out at 160 * F , no problem till it hit 0* F( our design temp. is 15* ). We increased the top end to 180@ , but it was slow to respond . I'm sure all will be find in the future ,but the customer is a little upset . Any suggestion on talking to her.
Before we install the boiler , she have a 30 year old monster in the house.
