    New zone recommendation.

    What I am looking for is a furnace without the heating element. Just a blower. I was thinking of adding a Hot Water heat exchanger to the plenum plumb the zone thru it. I can easily duct that around the basement. Do they have such a unit? Those unit heaters look a bit too garage style.

    Home water testing

    I have just installed an under the counter 3M water filter. I would like to submit my water sample to a 3rd party to get an idea of what we are dealing with. We are on city water not well. Are there any recommended 'goto' services that we should consider using?

    Hydronic system question

    I have a HW hydronic heating system. Very standard monoflow loop. I am in the north east. What I have noticed over the years is that the furnace fights hard to get up to temp when the call comes for heat. So when the house drops in temp and the radiators go ice cold... the call comes and...

    Beckett Burner has a small leak

    My furnace started to have a slight leak under the plastic housing of the burner. It drips down from where the case halves meet and drips just enough to make it stink. I started to investigate. The nozzle was all black and full of carbon. I changed that out. Electrodes all look good and...

    Indirect Hot water is Yellow

    ty for this reply. I have flushed as much as I could from the potable side. Rather clear now. But I am sure the problem still exists. All connections are copper and brass. No galvanized piping. No pressure spikes on boiler side so I feel the coil is still intact. No pressure relief is...
