    Different temps in each bedroom

    Yes the nest is setup correctly. Supply temps are 160-170 when measured at the beginning of the supply pipe after the boiler Return temps are 130-140 when measured right before the pump It seems that sealing up a small section of fins in the master is the easiset solution. I am just wondering...

    Different temps in each bedroom

    Second floor of the house has 4 bedrooms that all see different temperatures. I will list the specs of the bedrooms below. 1st bedroom is currently empty but will likely be a babies room. 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have a 11 and 15 year old and the 4th bedroom is the master. A Nest thermostat for heat...

    No zone valves on my system

    I wont sit here and pretend I know much about boilers since this is my first home (moved in last year) but I am trying to learn. Im learning now that right above the 1st and 2nd floor pumps there are spring check valves installed. The basement has a flow check valve on a different part of the...

    No zone valves on my system

    I forgot to mention from the start that my boiler is for heat AND hot water. The only zone that has a flow check valve is the basement. 1st and 2nd floor does not have flow check valves for whatever reason. I have 2 taco pumps that honestly look like they are the original pumps from when...

    No zone valves on my system

    I was adding zone valves because of the constant thermosiphon effect throughout the winter. I will get tremendous amounts of heat specifically on the 2nd floor when the thermostats are off

    No zone valves on my system

    I have oil heat with 3 zones/3 thermostats (basement, 1st/2nd floor) using baseboards. The 3 thermostats are 110v line voltage units that operate the 3 circulator pumps. There are no zone valves on this system. I would like to install 3 Nest thermostats to replace these old line voltage units...

    Baseboards hot but thermostat disconnected

    It has been about 3 weeks since I sealed up the leak with cement and Im happy to say there is no more water making its way through. I never sealed the section of the foundation wall where the exhaust enters through because I wanted to make sure the water wasnt leaking. Today I removed the...

    Turning off water supply but leaving the boiler on?

    That's what I wanted to know. I was very curious to see how long it would take before the house itself would come down to freezing temperatures with no heat based on weather conditions.

    Turning off water supply but leaving the boiler on?

    As a new homeowner Im still learning quite a few things. The family and I will be away for 7 days and the tempertures over here are dropping just below freezing at night time now. My home is well insulated. I have a burnham v84 oil boiler for baseboard heating and hot water. I understand...

    Baseboards hot but thermostat disconnected

    Excellent information. That certianly explained a lot. I measured the flue and it is indeed 8x8. The tag lists the last service which was 2 years ago. I was planning on buying a new filter anyway and have my buddy swap out the electrode. He certainly knows his stuff when it comes to boilers but...

    Baseboards hot but thermostat disconnected

    here is a picture of the tag for the last tune up. I dont know how to read it. I spoke to a tech at Armstrong Pumps and they said I shouldn't install the check valve in a system with hot water because the check valve is plastic and may deteriorate over time. That sucks. I Guess zone valves need...

    Baseboards hot but thermostat disconnected

    so for the longest time Ive had this little black plastic part in the boiler room and never knew what it was. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad: After I read the manual for the pump, I see this peice is the check valve that was removed from the pump for whatever reason. Hope this solves...

    Baseboards hot but thermostat disconnected

    There is no SS liner. Without getting on the roof, I would say the clay liner is either 8x8 or 10x10. A safe guess on the chimney height is 30-35 feet. I dont know the BTU rating of the boiler. The spec panel doesn't list the model number. Can you tell me what the "Jacket Length" is? Or the...

    Baseboards hot but thermostat disconnected

    Thanks for the info Dana. A buddy of mine has a lot of experience with boilers and he is going to help me install 3 zone valves. Im sure that solve my flow problem. Regarding the boiler exhaust, yes its in terrible condition. This is the 2nd time in a week after heavy rain that water has...

    Baseboards hot but thermostat disconnected

    I was wondering what that little fitting was in the bottom photo. Glad you told me. However, that flow check valve is for the basement zone. There is only one in the entire boiler room. Is it possible that these flow check valves would be installed elsewhere instead of the boiler room? Doesnt...

    Baseboards hot but thermostat disconnected

    Hello everyone. I will try my best to explain the situation but please bear with me since I really dont know much about boilers. If I leave any important information out then please tell me. To start, I moved into a new home over this past summer. I have a older Burnham boiler that uses oil...
