Not going to lie, I'm pretty proud of this job.
I did all of the copper from unit to flush tees and the preheat tank, another guy did the ref lineset. I did all of the low...
those things will run down into the negatives i know but do you have any form of backup or emergency heat if it gets lower?
To be honest, I don't remember the sizing of the old equipment but by an educated guess it probably had a 100K gas furnace and a 4 ton air.
We try to size the geo heat pumps somewhere between...
In this case it is a 5 ton variable speed furnace. When cranked all the way up, you can get 2200 CFM which is 367 CFM/TON. We always size around 350-400 CFM/TON and...
That's a Lennox return air base. In order to get all the airflow the furnace has available, it's wise to use one. In this case, 2200 CFM.
Thanks,pans are not required in our area. Drain is...

tell your boss dave the next time i see him i will proclaim him KING OF ALL AIRE-FLO! haha
the board is mounted to an interior wall. there were no plans to insulate. i agree, it's a lot of copper but you have to realize too that this is a really old building downtown and there is no...
the diamond plate i think was actually aluminum, we mounted a 4x8 sheet of the plate to plywood and it's mounted and anchored to the wall but with a 1/2" gap so as to avoid moisture issues
that wasn't what we were going for.... but sure!
ironically, i looked up the instructions online for the boiler buddy (after my other boiler post) and found nothing noted about check...
I know many of you busted my hump about not painting the board on this install....
The pics below are of a new...
too bad "Dirty Jobs" is no longer on the air....
I'm not sure there's enough latex gloves on earth to get me to work on that stuff!
ok, I might work on it after you got done cleaning it cause...
Interesting, I'll have to look that up. Like Charles had mentioned.... it should be taken care of at the zone valves.
I actually saw a drain like that on another boiler and thought it was a...
The heat is included in the rent, this building is really old and there is really no easy way to split up heating. As for the paint, I'll be posting more boiler pics in the future and...
I can't take credit for any of the piping or much else....
I'm just the wiring and start up monkey!

what did the home owner use to heat water before?
wouldn't a conventional forced air gas furnace and power vent water heater be cheaper?
i never understood hearing some of you guys talking...
I just spit all over my screen laughing
is that furnace powered with an extension cord?
that can't be right
just out curiousity
for a complete change-out, indirect and repipe like that with setup of burner.... how much time does that take? how many guys/hours?
i'd certainly pay for that kind of work
on the last pic i notice the expansion tank on the domestic is upside down.... i was always taught that's a big no no
either way, ridiculously clean for...
i have NEVER seen one of them thingers
why exactly were they used? did they not have heat otherwise in the bathroom?
i'm assuming it's a wall heater by the title of the photo
they left the evap coils!
i get SO pissed when i walk onto a job like that!
don't get your panties in a bunch man.... haha
my unfiltered thoughts certainly got the better of me and it obviously rubbed you the wrong way.
what it boils down to is this...
did you check...
i wish there was a "wall of ridiculous"
i hate to be the one guy that looks at this and thinks it's stupid
talk about restriction....
did you check pressure drops across all these filters...
looks like someone worked for airtron haha
ps, RNC is residential new construction
north prairie? you bet!
as for the purple primer, it's actually a mark i made with a sharpie to line up my 45's. just makes my life a little easier, the other marks were cleaned off better with...
it is a single stage stat, that i just replaced when i did the a/c. there is enough wires to run a two stage stat but i'll wait for this stat to die before i go to two stage
it's a merv 10 filter...
i know, i used it haha
i answered in previous posts, yes all the dip switches are set properly, i'm a service guy
and the return drop is 8x25, the trunk line i think is 8x14 or so
nope, it's a midget's basement
what kind of condenser is that? brand, model?
agreed on all, thanks for the comments
makes sense. seeing as how we really don't deal with ground shifts or earthquakes or anything they don't require that here. very interesting though
how exactly did you get the sides of those coils clean without removing the coil guards?
better question... how would you ever remove the coil guards with the unit sitting that close to a wall?
i like canvas too (gives you a little fudge room on the duct)
thanks for the compliment
agreed, i find stuff that's been installed for years and the homeowner is none the wiser.
not from my company though.....
2" is fine. it's only a 66k btu, and the vent is only going up to...
agreed on the furnace, and thanks
i'm not sure what you mean by a swing joint though... ?
you BALL BUSTER! lol
from the sill to where the venting comes down is 7'. there are two hangers in there. from the ceiling down, as you can see it's supported at the furnace. code, schmode on...
the same J hooks i use to hang the horizontal runs of pipe, i just trim them down a bit and screw it to the top of the furnace.
thanks for the compliment
i think moonlighting requires that i make money doing it! haha! Bill is the one selling me the equipment too haha
this was for some friends, my labor was their wedding gift. they just had to pay...
a little over a year ago i put in an a/c for this same friend. the whole thread can be seen here. http://hvac-talk.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=626682

move this thread to the wall of pride!
if it's a conditioned space, why insulate duct?
looks good but don't let chuckcrj see that clean effects.... he'll set you straight
if i found a spine fin coil trane that close to a drier vent i'd go ballistic
those coils ARE THE WORST to clean
you've got some good family and a pretty nice boss too!
i would've made it levitate!
damn you guys are harsh haha
have you done many condensing oil boilers?
how have they been for you?
given the small pic, it looks pretty good from here
i DID ask for nit picking, you're correct haha. thanks for the compliments.
interesting you bring all that up too. i agree that it definitely won't hurt my cause but i'm quite curious how much i...
