Buderus GB142 New Construction
I know many of you busted my hump about not painting the board on this install....
The pics below are of a new construction home being built by a local inspector.
-all in floor
-garage zone has antifreeze and is separated with plate heat exchanger
-alpha pump with zones
This is still a work in progress but I thought it looks great so far. The water line to the fill for the boiler was installed as a temporary thing by the plumber as he was in a hurry. I didn't do any of the piping but I designed the boiler board and will be completing wiring and start up probably next week. We also have installed a gas furnace, a/c and duct into this house.
Is that a heat trap instead of a check valve? Looks nice
that wasn't what we were going for.... but sure!

thanks for looking!
I think your right too, I always use them but after telling you I looked and think I didn't see them either.

I'm thinking that diamond plate wasn't cheap?
Looks great! The diamond plate is a bit "much" - I guess you can't win. lol
When using teh boiler buddy, stop using the supplied decoupler manifold! Needless extra pump!
So the white tank is a buffer tank? Is this to increase the water capacity in the system and reduce short cycling?
Installed many Mon/Cons - never with a buffer.
Thermal mass, your correct, if it can't modulate down below the lowest load it will short cycle.

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
thanks for looking
