    basic book about boilers

    Does any 1 know of a book about basic boiler operation. Just some thing simple like the thermostat calls for heat and this sends a signal to this n then this ect ect.

    something simple , from a simple wiring aspect to what the parts do, not a 150 page book just the basics so i can learn how to wire 1 without asking people who dont have time to teach me


    Im a electricians helper, I never worked on boilers.

    Last week i helped my cousin put in a burnham http://www.usboiler.burnham.com/pdf/Series%202_io.pdf

    He had 2 bring some 1 in to wire it cause i didnt know how the system works

    Boilers can be the simplest things to wire up. And the simplest things to have a major problem with if you don't understand what you are wiring to.
    Supply the line voltage and leave the rest to someone skilled till your willing to invest the time to understand what it is your wiring to.

    I'll have to agree with Stamas. All boiler systems are different.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    To a much greater degree than furnaces, boilers can be VERY unforgiving to situations of neglect, lack of experience, lack of understanding, or lack of attention to detail. When things go bad, they can often include extensive property damage, physical harm, and death, not just equipment failure / damage. Don't mess with boilers until you have a boiler license.

    Yes I also agree with all of u , that is why I want to study and learn how they work, I just want a book with the basic understanding.
