Here is a pic of my radiant cooling project.

I'm in the process of finishing up a radiant cooling system in my house right now. We are using geothermal as the source. Tekmar 406 house control to control the radiant cooling. Should be finished in about 2 weeks.

Flooring and Radiant

@ April 20, 2014 10:49 AM in Flooring and Radiant

Happy Easter everyone.
    I've been moving along with building my home.   I'm doing radiant heating and cooling with gypcrete pour.    I've looked into Launstein engineered flooring but it is way over my budget.    Is there any other reputable engineered floorings that you would recommend for use with the gypcrete and radiant.  Also has anyone had success with gluing the engineered down to the gypcrete.

Thanks, James

Wirsbo Pro Panel

@ December 14, 2013 4:45 PM in Wirsbo Pro Panel

I have 2 Uponor Propanel 212 pre-done radiant heat mixing panels.  Good for 2-mixed temperatures via Injection mixing. 

These sell for between 4-5 thousand each. 
Make an offer!!!

Pulsating liquid line on shut down

@ November 20, 2013 7:10 AM in Pulsating liquid line on shut down

I have a 5 ton rheem heat pump.  I came onto the job over the summer. The unit had had a leak and another contractor just filled it up and over charged the system.  I came in, recovered the refrigerant, fixed the leak,  evacuated system to 400 microns and properly charged unit.  Unit has been working fine until now.  The unit heats fine, but makes some horrible clicking/pulsating noises outside on the liquid line when the unit shuts down.  It only does it on shut down.  Any ideas?  The only thing I can think of would be the TXV in the condenser.

Thanks, James Day

@ September 5, 2013 7:43 PM in Solid vs Engineered Hardwood for Overpour

My biggest concern is the not so solid feel of the floating engineered floor.   I like the solid feel of traditional hardwood better... But I do understand the risks with solid hardwood.  I like the ease of not having to install sleepers everywhere with the engineered.     That is the dilemma that I am having.   I have a system design that am working on now.  Geothermal radiant with chilled water air handlers.  Will space the tubing 6" on center for future Radiant Cooling (Not in the budget for now but I will put the tubing and floor sensors in).  Will have a Viessmann Vitodens 200 for DHW and secondary heating to subsidize for the Geo.  

Thanks, James

Solid vs Engineered Hardwood for Overpour

@ September 2, 2013 9:58 PM in Solid vs Engineered Hardwood for Overpour

I am building a new house for myself and I am wondering what everyone else prefers when doing a gypcrete over pour.  I've installed both for customers... but now that its my own house just looking to see what everyone else prefers.  Is it worth the hassle to put down sleepers for solid hardwood,   or would a nice engineered hardwood be a better option.  House is around 3200 sq ft,   going to be mostly hardwood.  
Thanks, James


@ May 5, 2013 10:54 PM in What's the proper order for oil to gas conversion?

Usually the propane company will run the line to the house.  From there the installing contractor would run the propane line from there.    It can be cordinated with the contractor and propane company so everything runs smoothly.

Thanks James

I'm intrigued on the pricing.  


@ April 21, 2013 6:04 PM in QUESTION FOR THE MONTH

Moisture. It's harder to pull moisture out of a 410a system. If left open to long it is harder to get down to an acceptable micron reading.



@ April 21, 2013 7:27 AM in Quietest oil boiler?

I'm located right in Otisville and I install viessmann. If you would like give me a call we can set up an appointment.

NY state does not have any licenses. Certain local city's have there own. But nothing statewide. The city is its own animal.


@ February 18, 2013 6:24 PM in NG Combi Boiler versus indirect tank and boiler setup

I'm not a big fan of navien units. Every thing is to jammed in the box. I still prefer a boiler/indirect combo. Where in jersey are you located. We service a good portion of nj if you are interested.

I have a website. Also on angies list and service magic. Just wondering if anyone has any success with postcards, flyers or anything like that.

What type of advertising have the wallies used over the years to grow your business. What have you found that had worked to find new customers. I know referrals are the best, but what else?

Thanks James

I only install Viessmann. Have had really good luck with them. Very high quality. There are also a lot of other good manufacturers out there, triangle tube, lochinvar to name a few.
The installer is usually more important than the equipment.


Found it!

Some People may say that :)

I have both the Ridgid and the Milwaukee Press tools.  I like the Milwaukee tool better.  My Employee prefers the Ridgid.  I use only the Viega Fittings.  Havn't had any issues and it saves a ton of time on boiler installations.  I save about a Day of Labor on a Boiler Replacement.
