    Residential boiler lifespan?

    I only opened on time to add a 6" section of 1" copper tubing about four years ago. It was in a spot where I had to drain about a third of the system. Otherwise it's just when I vent air every Fall from the second floor radiators. Maybe a few gallons from the pipe mod? I'll check the inside...

    Residential boiler lifespan?

    I have 20+ year old small boiler that has spent most of its life supporting a mostly wood burning stove. I've cleaned it and changed electrodes, nozzle and oil filter every Fall. I burn about 200 gallons a year. We've lived here 50 years and will probably be leaving in the next five. It's a...

    Boiler keeps going off/on, off/!

    I'm not a pro but have been keeping a few boilers in our family running for 30 some years. I just joined this forum looking for several tips when I saw this problem. Maybe I missed it, but when you are trying to determine if your pump is pumping, do you hear water flowing out of the boiler? I...
Hey, wait a minute.
