it is sad how.....

@ April 14, 2010 9:27 PM in Burnham

a few issues  that a company RESOLVES can lead to the ruin of a name. Burnham was very fair I think in the resoltion of the past issues and still yes they get a bad rap in some circles even for a boiler that has nothing to do w/ the past..... At least you asked the question and got the info. on he new unit.

@ April 14, 2010 7:57 AM in What are my options if gas is in the building?

convenient. What type of emitters are there? Cast iron rads? Finn tube? If cast the Gas condensing boiler would be  a plus.  Start w/ a heatloss and then you can see if there needs to be 2 boilers or if 1 would work. Also if the radiation is "over sized"... a plus for gas condensing..... If the chimney is as old as the boiler(s) pretty good chance that it is either not good or it needs to be lined. A direct vent would save you that cost.... kpc

well sounds like.....

that there is not enough main venting on the lines in the basement.....Do you have any OR are they undersized or plugged? How big are these rads?

@ March 25, 2010 6:30 PM in Secret life of low temp panel radiators ?

Are the Buderus ones. They have a wide selection of sizes and shapes... I prefer the 22 series. The 33 series are special order. Here is a link w/ the info on sizing.

@ March 25, 2010 6:11 PM in surge protector on mod con?

I had a job here is Seacoast Me/ NH and it had issues w/ lockouts..... I went through 2 boards before asking the question about power outages.... "happens 2-3 per day" they said... I went and actually put a UPS (uninterrupted power supply) on the boiler and the problem stopped. I actually recommend them to all my modcon customers... now.
Think about it we put one on our $1200 PC but not on a $4000 boiler. Does not make sense.
Glad you are back. kpc

my "non approved " condensate treatment would fix that issue.

really... the plot

@ March 20, 2010 8:15 AM in condensate neutralizers...

thickens... I am about ready to drill a hole in the basement floor and dump it there. I know for a fact that there is nothing but sand under the basement slab. I guess I can buy one of the units advertised here on the side of the post... Just seems strange about needing to be certified after a number of years  A LOT of well respected people on the wall  say to DIY w/ these units....:(

It will be fine....

@ March 19, 2010 11:28 PM in Burnham V-7

so long as you don't overfire it. They uppped the btu ratings to compete w/ the other brands at the time. Fire it a slightly lower rate and it will last a long time.

@ March 19, 2010 1:36 PM in condensate neutralizers...

I had an inspection for a boiler job today... I installed a Embassy Onex 93% afue. it obviously condenses... I seeing here for may years make an acid neutralizer out of PVC TY's and limestone and run it down to the sewer... Inspector does not accept it on the basis I am not certified to "make " such a unit.... unless I have a 3rd party certification... Seems picayune to me... any thoughts?

sounds reasonale to me.

@ March 16, 2010 8:24 AM in sizing T & P valve for indirect.

what model was it? Sounds like it could have been thermal expation to me. Did they have a potable extrol on it?

Thanks...

That is helpful. kpc

Storage Tank not Indirect....

@ March 10, 2010 6:08 PM in Hot Water Storage Tank

I have use a number of Vaughn Storage tanks... They are VERY heavy. Super stor ones are not. The Vaughn tanks do hold up well and some of their Sepco electric models have been know to last 30+ years. They are very price competitive... The stone lining is unique and does bring some thermal mass to hold heat.  hope this helps...kpc

separate water heater? tank? or is it off the boiler? kpc

What is the main differance? Some say not to use an ERV in Northern climates.... why?  Seems an ERV would be a better choice due to better effciecy.... ty,kpc

@ March 7, 2010 8:30 PM in Finally stopped running

save the door? that it a very pricey item to replace... about 1/2 the cost of the boiler.
IS that a DV boiler? looks like a Riello BF series burner....kpc

silly question......

@ March 7, 2010 8:26 PM in Crown Boiler, new to us, great but I have a question

Is this an oil fired boiler w/ a tankless coil?  If so the boiler must maintain a temp. so you have hot water whenever yo need it..

My Vote......

@ March 6, 2010 8:06 AM in Can you recomend a simple, reliable boiler?

would be the Embassy Axia combi. They are quiet, have sealed combustion, wall hung and hot water all in one neat package. Not a lot to go wrong.  It is about 87% afue. It comes in 2 sizes... 160k and 90k
