    The fancy cover first pictured will not work the stack effect is foiled by the oven vent front. The output will likely be cut in half, perhaps less.

    This is unfortunately all-too common. Still I have found good people all over N. America for my clients seeking local talent.

    A return in the basement will likely exacerbate the problem. All basements should be radiated and ventilated with an ERV. Zoning is a must.

    They certainly cannot do it!

    I would not have a gas company "tech" work on one of my condensing boilers for love or money.

    This bears repeating; "Uninsulated exposed poured concrete foundation is good for about R1. Uninsulated band joists no more than R2. The air leak at the band-joist/foundation sill in most homes is...

    Setback is for scorched air i.e. people who don't know the meaning of winter weather comfort. You will save more money setting and forgetting your thermostat. As Dana says, the pickup, once called...

    No, we use Triangle Tube Smart tanks, NTI Trin and Store, Buderus, Crown Mega-Stor and even Viessmann if the client can afford the best.

    If you would rather size your boiler by anecdote than firm science. I installed a 50mtuh Lochinvar Knight in a 1924 1500 sq.ft story and half bungalow in St. Paul, MN. We confirmed there was NO...

    Min input on the HTP Contender 12.5, Bosch 57 is 12.9 NG, and my choice for this one. 40 gallons standing gives you 2 reasonable showers, if you want more buy a bigger tank.

    Most are still using...

    Logical, but inaccurate.

    If the cellar (basement) is not conditioned or is insulated the loads should be ignored in most cases.

    I was being facetious about the circlulators. We used one on...

    50 btu/sq.ft. that should do it; twice.

    Make sure they install the boiler with primary/secondary piping adding the extra pump will burn another 88 watts to the first 88, every, time, the burner...

    We heat floors, walls and ceilings everyday. Bathrooms and kitchens are challenging as jad points out, but a forced air register in small rooms usually performs poorly. This is also true of...

    It will pay for itself if it saves you money. A proper heat load, calculated design water temperature and from that, ROI.

    Spark and damper, 5-7% in the real world. Won't pay for itself very fast...

    Some still use the long obsolete "IBR" rating for boiler sizing. In the rare cases where it is valid the operators usually misapply it. We "account" for everything and service a lot of boilers. The...

    Ya, what he said.

    The boiler contemplated is too "big". Likewise the piping and the pumps, pumps, pumps!

    You don't have to be Dana to do this math. I love how Dana "guesses" better than most...

    I couldn't have said it better myself and can't tell you how gratifying it is to know that someone is listening, even if the contractors are mostly deaf.

    OK.

    It isn't worth anything unless the guy installing it knows what he is doing. It is a question for the installer. If he doesn't have the answer you are looking for, get a new installer.

    First, the appliance price is only one factor in the "installed" price and frankly the least of it. There are competitive condensing boilers on the market that we sometimes install for less than...

    Yes, both and I don't know why the ODR module is overpriced except to say, some will pay more for an 85% efficient cast iron boiler than by any 95% low-mass condensing boiler, all of which are fully...
