I can barely fit a water heater in the utility room. That's the reason I considered a combi.

Advice on heating unit

@ March 26, 2013 10:14 PM in Advice on heating unit

Separating the utilities on a 2 family home. Currently have a steam boiler working both floor with the thermostat on the first floor. I want to run a loop of baseboard on the second floor. And separate the hot water. It's a small area. After a heat loss calculation, I'm getting a heat loss of about 20k buts. I'm interested in a combi boiler but can't seem to find one to fit such a low btu output. Any advice would be appreicated.

Is there any good heat loss calculation software that you use? I need to know how much baseboard heat an apartment needs. Thanks

Radiant heat in a bathroom

@ February 20, 2013 9:57 PM in Radiant heat in a bathroom

I am looking to remove a hot water radiator out of a small bathroom. The current heating system is a monoflo system. I am looking to put radiant heat on its own thermostat in the bath room. Anyone have suggestions if I should run the radiant on the same zone as the current zone (monoflo). And advice on piping it into the boiler. Thanks

Plumbing question

I'm installing two 75 gallon water heaters that I will be twinning together. I have a hot water recirculating line but not to sure how I will tie it in. Will tying it into the bottom of only one heater be a problem as far as the heaters not working evenly. Any suggestions would help. Thanks

Oversized steam boiler

@ September 23, 2010 9:30 PM in Oversized steam boiler

Recently went to a home with an over-sized steam boiler. Noticed that the boiler kept short cycling.Homeowner said it was originally over-sized b/c they were planning on adding a second floor addition in the future.... is there anything I can do to adjust this boiler to stop the short cycling and stop wasting so much fuel? but still give out sufficient heat to heat the house.  Thank you. Any input will be greatly appreciated
