Ya you really do need it. Yoiu could do a spirotop that spirovent makes. not cheap $45.00. or you could install one of those  hyvent shutoffs into the bushing and it would be easier to replace....kpc

@ August 24, 2010 11:30 AM in Splice or one piece? (PEX)

to do it right... get the right stuff. Then you can sleep better and not have problems down the road.  In this day and age FedEx or UPS should be able to get the product to you w/ in a day or so.
Are you on a very tight budget? Pexsupply.com has pretty good pricing... although I prefer uponor for radiant. kpc

Is the boiler control a "tankless" one...
Are there Taco zone valves? Sometimes I have run into a case where a 571 head is about to go and they will fire the burner for no apparent reason...

25 sq. ft. panels... puts me dead on... all was confirmed by Buderus. Yes I do wish there was a pool to heat! kpc

they are usually...

@ August 20, 2010 6:42 PM in radiator placement

under windows because that is where the most heatloss is. That being said if you cant get them there or it is impractical.... as long as they are evenly placed  that will work out fine.

is this an apt?

@ August 20, 2010 7:58 AM in I will have a biler. Should I install tankless water heater?

If this is i would opt for each unit to have its own electric water heater that they can be charged for their own water usage.

There are 2 tanks.

@ August 18, 2010 9:42 PM in stagnation...

1- 80 gallon w/ 2 coils and a 120 gallon storage tank. The Glycol is Tyfocor which is what Buderus reccom. for the job. Yes it was my 1st job.... and yes it was a learning one. I would do a number of things diff. The customer is happy, as they saved $1500+ dollars last yr on the fuel bill.

K.I.S.S.

@ August 18, 2010 7:22 AM in Zoning and piping questions

Keep it simple. complexity only makes headaches and in the long run cost somebody (maybe you) money. Do the proper heatloss and do a series loop for each zone. kpc

I have not heard a lot of positive stuff about Quietside in general... that being said I have never seen one in my area.

@ August 18, 2010 7:15 AM in I will have a biler. Should I install tankless water heater?

both in 1 unit. There are many Combi- boilers out there. Notably Embassy Axia, Embassy Onex, Baxi has a couple of units.... as well as the Triangle tube Excellence. All are gas units.

the other take ....

@ August 1, 2010 8:53 PM in steam or hot water

would be that since it is in an Apt. situation the steam rads will take a whole lot more abuse than copper fin tube....

@ July 31, 2010 9:37 AM in Help with choosing new heating system?

out the sawzsall...  How "bad" is the old steam system. I would sight unseen advise you to get a steam pro out to look at keeping the steam. If done right a new boiler w/ all the right venting can be nearly as efficint as the hot water systems. Where in Mass? There are a bunch of guys here from Mass.

Rechargable Batteries....Ni Cad

@ July 16, 2010 7:58 AM in Rechargable Batteries....Ni Cad

We all have battery operated tools. Some better than others. They all eventually lose battery performance. While looking for replacements on-line I came across the "battery miracle" on ebay that claims for 10 bucks you can buy a way to get more bang out of your battery.... anyone ever done this? Is it a scam? Any merit? kpc
