HydRadiant (old radiant)

@ January 16, 2014 4:32 PM in HydRadiant (old radiant)

Is anyone familiar with the HydRadiant product?
I am working in a home with this system and the man of the house passed two years ago.
His wife stated that he would clean, flush, & add inhibitor every two years.
I do not know what he used to clean and inhibit the tubes with?
Any help is appreciated!

Flat Rate Question

@ November 6, 2013 5:46 AM in Flat Rate Question

Morning guys!

Was curious how many of you are using Flat Rate pricing and if so who's?

I've been looking and not sure which way to lean. All our techs. have smart phones so I would like to utilize this with PDA automatic billing.

I like this one but not sure about the way they "bill" me

Thanks in advance,

Carrier Blower Issue

@ July 7, 2013 8:56 AM in Carrier Blower Issue

I have a Carrier 58VLR105---11112 low boy oil fired furnace with a variable speed blower.
The green LED light on G is illuminated but the blower is not running.
How do I determine if it is a bad blower, harness, or board.
There is 120 Volt at the motor

Cooling Question

@ February 10, 2012 8:05 AM in Cooling Question

I am currently
looking at a job that has an extremely large furnace 120,000 btu's (two times the heat
load) but a properly sized single stage 4 ton a/c unit.

The homeowners would like to zone the house from top to bottom! The first floor load is basically two thirds the entire load.

I do not see how this would be advantages to them in anyway. Especially 
with bypass dampering the single stage 4 ton a/c system will short cycle
and not dehumidify the home properly.

Just looking for others input for or against my thoughts. Any information would be greatly appreciated

Help Tim!!!!

@ January 12, 2012 7:31 AM in Help Tim!!!!

There has been much debate in our shop regarding this topic lately!

We all know if you need "more" gas because of multiply appliances in a location you need more VOLUME!



The debate is where do you need the volume from! Some guys think that
you need the largest pipe to carry the gas as soon as it comes through
the wall and into the house!



Others think that you can add the "volume" section close to the
appliances and that will be fine. Argument being that a lot of the low
pressure gas lines in our area come into the homes 3/4" anyway so why
does it mater where we add the volume?



Any well knowledge gas pipe sizing guys out there?

But the argument is still that the top and bottom of the meter are supplied with 3/4".
When and how does the volume come into play?

Timber Framed Home

@ May 24, 2010 5:24 PM in Timber Framed Home

We just got brought onto a project that is pretty far along on the building process. It is a Timber Framed Barn that has been converted into a residence. All the interior framing is completed but the previous builder didn't let any of the other trades in. The house has no conditioning or electric yet?????

I wanted to know if any of you guys have experience with Timber Framed structures and what types of systems have you used? It is such an eye pleasing structure that we don't want to hack it up with ugly duct-work or copper baseboard. We are entertaining the idea of radiant but cost and the available floor space is a factor....

Thanks,

Jamie

Zone Valves

@ November 26, 2009 4:55 AM in Zone Valves

What have you guys found to be the most energy efficient zone valve on the market?

We are always trying to make are systems more and more efficient and with the introduction of the Grundfus Alpha zone valves are going to be even more present in the US.

Uponer

@ November 26, 2009 4:51 AM in would love your feedback!

I think you guys feel through the cracks when you cleaned house a few years ago. You still make great PEX but have really seemed to lost your steam in the market place. We no longer get our web leads and have not been mailed or contacted about any new products.

Quite disappointed of Wirsbo (opps) Uponer as a company.

Just my 2 cents

And we do a lot of Uponer

Large Peerless Purefire job...

@ October 18, 2009 10:30 AM in Large Peerless Purefire job...

Just finished  a large Peerless Purefire job. Pretty nice boiler that wired, vented, and piped rather easily.

We installed a total of 23 boilers between 5 boiler rooms. Each boiler room had two dedicated domestic hot-water boilers that tied to a large indirect. The remaining boilers in the room where for central heating.

Pompetti HVAC's Cousin Nick

@ October 15, 2009 8:43 PM in Pompetti HVAC's Cousin Nick

I just want all the wallies out there who know Cousin Nick to say a little prayer for him tonight before you go to sleep.

Last week he was diagnosed with hotchkins lymphoma and meet with his oncologist today. He starts kemotherapy within the next two weeks for the next four months, having a treatment every two weeks. At that time his doctor has told him he may not work because of how "dirty" our trade is and the potential of getting cut. And he will be out of work for a minimum of 6 months...

Nick's the good looking one on the left!

So sad
