atmosphere.... No need for a PRV. Some would drain into the cast iron plumbing stack too. Others Had no expansion tank and only filled the rads 3/4 full. On the conservative side I would venture to guess 35% savings.... maybe 50%.

@ May 19, 2011 11:15 PM in New HE Boiler for old house with radiators

may plug up w/ the old radiators being in  the system. There is a lot of old junk in there. If a chuck of old iron get on the HX it may create a hot spot and you may have a leak... That hx warranty is now void. Munchkin , Trinity, Peerless all use that same Giannoni HX. I don't have a lot of confidence in the Aluminum block boilers either...

has no clue. He needs to be educated . The High Eff units are perfect for those set ups IF piped properly & sety up w/ a combustion tool.  I am not a munchkin fan... too many issues and the HX is very narrow. Be sure to have the system cleaned out and flushed of old debris.

what they deserve. They will prob. end up  paying more in fuel costs than they will "save" in the install costs. Since the boiler was modified maybe a call to the gas sup pier or the AHJ would be in in order as a life safety issue.....?  Hey at least document what you found so that IF there is ever an issue that it does not come back to bite you....kpc

that the pex delaminated due to way too high a temp water being run though it.... That would make sence on a cold day , the system not heating up, and someone wanting warm feet..... they prob cranked the water heater. Big mess. It can be fixed.... that is if they start again. kpc

@ April 11, 2011 9:57 AM in buderas indirect water heater

what to say about your supplier. I have never had that issue w/ warranty claims. Not that i have had that many issues. Water quality has everything to do w/ it. There is not one water heater (indirect or otherwise) that meets every persons needs. Some people can pay more than others. The ORIGINAL poster wanted advice about an indirect that would fit in a space. I gave him my thoughts about the s120. It is ok. However it not super well insulated compared to the ST or LT tanks. Thats all. I'm sure you can find Sepco water heaters out there from the 60's still in use. I have a ssu-60 ...so far no issues after 6+ years... hopefully it stays that way! The Buderus tanks leave a lot of room for then to wiggle out of the warrty.

@ April 11, 2011 7:47 AM in buderas indirect water heater

1 and it was under warrnty. TT would be nice too but height was an issue according to the poster. The buderus s-120 really is just a 7 yr tank.

It is a budget...

@ April 10, 2011 1:29 PM in buderas indirect water heater

indirect. The insulation on it is really substandard for Buderus standards. I have installed a few and they are ok.... but they do have standby losses higher that most. If it were my home I would opt for a LT tank or a brand like HTP/ Superstor.

its the ignighter control board.. do not handle the ignighter w/ bare hands. that will shorten its life... that may be 1/2 the problem. Follow the wires back to the board. do you have power there? Is there something loose?
