Mine is pretty easy. I wrote instructions for my father in law and he had no trouble. With a wood gun it is pretty much "open door, throw in wood,...
It's not that I care about the Energy Star rating to proves it's efficient, I care because it unlocks a $500 rebate in NJ.
Unfortunately, in NJ the Geyser does NOT qualify for the $500 rebate available as it is NOT Energy Star rated.
I installed an electric water heater in 2012 for summer DHW.
Had I known about these add-on heat pumps, I would have used that to make my...
No...but I probably COULD be for $600.
I don't see the GE for $599 in my cart at Lowes. Are you sure Lowes isn't claiming the rights to the rebates in that price?
I guess this is why HX designed for pools/tubs are usually SS.
Yeah, the boiler has clean water...and the hot tub looks like a pond in NJ :-).
Think it froze since it wasn't being used?
You might want to add a biocide. Other than algae, I don't think you have much to worry about.
Apparently. Keep changing the parameters and everyone can be happy.
Either way, starting these boilers is simple.
Forced draft. Love it.
You guys keep answering with "coals". This man wants to start with NO coals.
For me, I throw some cardboard in that I was going to recycle...
Sounds like you got straightened out.
Let us know when you throw the candle to her!
Generally I reload the boiler when it is firing "naturally". In other words, when it is running anyways. IF, and that is a big IF, I use the purge...
Go for it and let us know.
Realistically, without the cycle timer and with the differential set to 30 I never get a back puff.
Nah, no doubting here. It's polar vortex week 2 here and my house is whatever temp I like with as much DHW as you could ever want.
I puts the...
Oh boy...He had an old Wood Gun from back in the day. It was carbon steel and he had nothing but problems with it. He couldn't kick it to the curb...
He's probably got 1" pex? So he needs to incorporate a 10" radius loop to account for the expansion?
The more I learn about this...
Just out of curiosity, wouldn't heating the storage tanks with the oil be just as efficient as not? I mean, the oil burner is most efficient when it...
Why not leave the storage?
Do everything you can to get that 1k to MAX temp before you leave and leave with a firebox full of wood burning. Then...
Oh, I have a basement. 2500sq ft of it. Dry as a bone. My old house had a basement with a sump pump. Never again.
Good on you for having the...
Yeah, it was 02 barrier. We wound up zip tie-ing it along the way into a lazy "s" behind the baseboard cover. It did break a pipe off the wall...
Yes. 2000F at the thermocouple.
That IS essentially the secondary combustion zone on a Wood Gun.
Hmm...didn't really get any instructions with the straight single length of tube.
I'm done with this stuff for anything but underground use. If...
Sorry. Missed it. The internet can be so misleading sometimes.
AHS is on this board. I highly doubt they would leave Mike high and dry. Sure. Maybe there goes the warranty on the rear door. Boiler developing...
I just can't fathom 8500 gallons in a day. That is like basically pumping a river. It must cost a fortune to pump all of that water. Why even have...
Yeah, I know the answer now. Not happy. My perfect job turned to pooh. I'm not sure the exact type of Pex we used. It was o2 barrier. We cheated...
