@ January 28, 2007 2:10 PM in conversion formula

any one know how to convert cubic feet into gallons???

been pretty busy

@ January 28, 2007 1:23 PM in N.E. Cold snaps means lots of overtime

Got a call for a burst heat line in a large codo complex this morning. Got to the property and found out that a sprinkler head froze and burst. water was running for 6 hours before i got the call, there was a major amount of damage and the parking garage was flooded, good thing the garage was heated, could have been a good sized skating rink down there. I love this weather !!!!

The Viessmann is my first choice, you can not beat the quality if this boiler it is in a league all its own. My second choice is the Lochinvar Knight we have sold several of these boilers, commercial and residential with no problems at all. I have yet to try a mod/con boiler with an aluminum heat exchanger, but the Buderus seems to be a nice boiler,many here on the wall have had great success with them. I recently had training on the Biasi boiler line and they offere a wall hung boiler that will modulate but will not condense so this boiler would be a great option for any type of high temp load.

swing joints

@ December 28, 2006 11:02 PM in Steam Header Swing Joints

i am looking at replacing a steamer in boston that has no exp joints. there are 4 risers all 4" welded directly into an 8" riser the boiler sections are all starting to leak. Should be a good replacement for the spring!! To Learn More About This Professional, Click Here to Visit Their Ad in "Find A Professional"

yes

@ December 3, 2006 9:55 PM in lochinvar with tn4

i am using a heat exchanger for the snow melt and a four way miving valve. We are still finalizing what controls configuration to use there is two stages of heating and one stage cooling. We are also using arzell zone dampers to make it even more complicated. I will post photos soon To Learn More About This Professional, Click Here to Visit Their Ad in "Find A Professional"

tekmar mixing stations

@ December 3, 2006 9:13 PM in lochinvar with tn4

we had to negotiate price several times to get this project so i am counting my pennies in this mechanical room. The house is a little under 16,000 sqft and we have about 5000 sqft of snow melt and that includes the roof. the heat loss was done properly, most of the load is going to the snow melt. i am using all tekmar mixing stations with actuators.I wish icould use a callefi hydo seperator but we are over budget on the chilled water so i had to make some changes. The worst part is i have to solder all the 3" copper. I was hoping to use my propress for this one. To Learn More About This Professional, Click Here to Visit Their Ad in "Find A Professional"

temps and zones

@ December 3, 2006 8:37 PM in lochinvar with tn4

paul, there are 20 radiant zones running from 6 different mixed temps and there are 5 hydro zones that will be running 140 degree temps. The domestic load is a 119 indirect with a 119 storage tank. I would like two boilers to go on priority when the domestic calls. This house has 12 bathrooms. We are useing 4 kbn 285's for the heating and domestic load. I was not able to put a low loss header on this one due to bugetary constraints so we will be doing primary secondary. I have gotten many mixed views on piping the domestic so i am looking for the best way and also the easiest way to acheive unlimited hot water for the home.

how to pipe indirect

@ December 3, 2006 5:07 PM in lochinvar with tn4

I have seen a few installs recently with multiple knight boilers and the tn4 controls. I have a new install coming up and the question that i have is this, How should i pipe the indirect? should i pipe it according to lochinvar specs or pull it off the secondary loop and put it on priority? It would be nice to utilize both boilers to speed up the recovery of the hot water system, but i want to know what the best possible solution is?

biasi

@ December 3, 2006 3:51 PM in Competitevly priced panel rads

Biasi

@ October 31, 2006 5:11 PM in Looking for some direct vent oil options (Ted G)

Ted the biasi is a great boiler, three pass design, rear tappings and comes with a reillo burner. They come with there own power venting kit and it seems pretty easy to install. Talk to Delta T in franklin ma. they are a stocking distributer and should have everything you need. To Learn More About This Professional, Click Here to Visit Their Ad in "Find A Professional"

lochinvar knight install we just finished

@ October 10, 2006 6:16 PM in knight install

This is a project that we just finished up.These boilers are being used for a 48 unit apartment building. The existing indirects had to stay, but we were able to squeeze these boilers and all this piping into a very small place.4 kbn 285 were used to replace six Trianco heatmakers. Thanks to Tom and Andy from Fricker heating and air conditioning for helping us make this a fast and painless install. This is my first time posting pics so i hope they come out.

lochinvar

@ October 9, 2006 5:52 PM in Gas Pool heater replacment, suggestions?

Try the lochinvar knight boiler and a heat exchanger. Munchkin 399 is good for that application to. To Learn More About This Professional, Click Here to Visit Their Ad in "Find A Professional"

@ October 8, 2006 8:47 PM in First Ultra Install - Whadya Think?

You will need a bigger pump for the indirect and i would have tried to put your closely spaced tees closer you may have some ghost flow issues. To Learn More About This Professional, Click Here to Visit Their Ad in "Find A Professional"

dont bash plumbers

@ October 8, 2006 12:42 PM in Losing bids!

Ted it doesnt matter if you are a licensed plumber or have a certificate from a seminar you took one day. YOU have been on this forum before bashing plumbers and there work. Are you a plumber? If not then you need us to hook up the water and gas for all of your perfectly installed boilers.Dont bash plumbers, bash installers, i have seen work done by so called experts that was done horribly. Plumbers are just as important as you.

buderus

@ October 5, 2006 8:01 PM in Burnham MPO vs Buderus G115 - The straight poop please.

i would go with the buderus boiler. Both are three pass boilers but the buderus comes with a reillo burner and the option for the logmatic with outdoor reset. To Learn More About This Professional, Click Here to Visit Their Ad in "Find A Professional"
