What wall hung......

@ December 26, 2010 10:34 PM in Spirovent "before" the boiler on a wall-hung?

was that?  I have had one make/model that was doing that too. They changed the boiler vent to a cheap piece o' junk instead of the Calefi that was on there. I stuck an air scoop on the etuen... problem solved.  As long as it is in there somewhere.... kpc

be better off getting 2-3 electric space heaters to have around the house when you are there.... would be a lot less of a hassle.

Couple of things....

@ December 23, 2010 5:24 PM in Water Coming out From Vent

-Turn down the pressure. 1/2 pound is all you should need.... 2 at the most.
-Flush out your boiler... do this when it is not HOT.....Spitting vents happen a lot when the water in  the boiler is contaminated/ dirty. From what I see on the sight glass the water is filthy.
-Check to see that the rad valve is all the way open.
-insulate your mains.

@ December 19, 2010 9:36 AM in New Knight boiler customer wants it adjusted.

to change their mindset. Do away w/ the set back if they have a ModCon boiler w/ outdoor reset. The boiler willnot work well that way. I have a tekmar 260 Control and I leave my tstat @ 66F all the time.

Stndard practice for Northern Utilities... not Unitil was 1st 75'was "free" andfeter that it was  x dollars per ft.. 240 is a ways but not impossible.... see what happens if you propose dig the trench. the other thing is timing. This time of year is a lot harder to get stuff done. Next May may be better.

actually... It does.

@ December 5, 2010 2:07 PM in Phase 3 rated for steam ?

there is an air vent on the top of those phase3 indirect. Should be closed. probably fix the issue.

@ December 4, 2010 9:41 AM in can you use thermostatic control valves with a diverter system?

you will need a diverter valve that will open up if that TRV is closed. You see these on European Panel Rad.... You would be better off to do as I have w/ my house to home run each rad to a common manifold w/ say 1/2" pex this will give you more control w/o all the presure drop.

@ November 29, 2010 8:32 PM in rehau to wirsboro

anything will "work"...  rehau is pex A so the expansion fittings will attach fine. Is this heat or water? I have even used the standard pex crimp fittings in a pinch.

@ November 29, 2010 6:38 PM in NTI 150 combi's help needed!

board issues it makes me wonder about power surges? Are there just hard wired in? I have been wiring in mine w/ small surge suppressors.... Seems funny that we will not put one on a $4000  boiler w/ a control board but we will certainly have the $600 home computer on one...

i have 6-7...

@ November 28, 2010 5:49 PM in Embassy ONEX

Onex boilers out there... both LP and Nat gas. had pretty good luck w/ them. If I had a quection they were right there w/ answers. I have a heat only version going in this week. Control is easy to learn, piping straight forward.

well that does.....

@ November 24, 2010 9:30 PM in Cracked Boiler?

pull part of the jacket off and/ or pull the smoke pipe off....if it is at the water line it will be pretty easy to see.
chemicals may or may not work and if they do it will only be for a short time.kpc

I am In New Hampshire.....

@ November 24, 2010 9:25 PM in CSST bonding...

I have looked at the Tracpipe and the Wardflex books and they don't specifically say stranded manditiory.....Just #6 . Trac does say to "consider it" but not HAVE to. He was "quoteing"  was Trac pipe.... Trac pipe does use NFPA70  as a referance. (i have no idea what that is...Another thing he was saying was that if a 200A panel was in there you were required to run a #4 bonding wire.                                                         Here is the big thing is that I just bought 300' of #6 solid.....OUCH!
 I don't do a ton of gas piping but I am leaning to doing more and more all black......

CSST bonding...

@ November 22, 2010 10:29 PM in CSST bonding...

I had an inspector tell me today that when using CSST and bonding the gas line that the bonding wire needed to be stranded #6 copper.... solid #6 was not good enough.... I could not find anyting that mandated this to be true in the Tracpipe manual.

where in NH?

@ November 21, 2010 12:38 PM in Help!

What pressure is the boiler running at? 2 pipe or 1 pipe steam ? What this a problem BEFORE the HW zone off the boiler was hooked up? If so it maybe a problem w/ the wiring... should be a A-stat that breaks on rise so that the boiler does not steam when the HW zone is calling... I'm in Dover. kpc

@ November 20, 2010 8:11 AM in Radiant Floor Heating System Pre-Install Advice Sought

non barrier pex is cheaper but then you need to get all non ferrous parts... and still then it can cause headaches w/ water quality issues. Did you say the tubing is already installed?  How long are the loop lengths? Is this an "open" system? Did you do a heatloss on the system?
