Dunkirk Boiler Reviews Consumer Ratings - Dunkirk offers several hot water boilers from wall-mounted boilers to cast iron boilers and they even have a boiler for light commercial applications.

Wall-mounted boilers, provided they are controlled properly, can be used as singles, doubles, or even more boilers hooked in series to cycle on and off based on demand and other factors including boiler maintenance.

Buderus GB142 Boiler Reviews - The Buderus GB142 Wall Hung Boiler is gas-fired and can be retrofitted for propane from natural gas.

Crown Aruba 3 Boiler Reviews | Consumer Ratings - Richard, I’m considering purchasing a Crown Aruba 3 boiler model# AW1128. Your web page suggested that I e-mail you to get a technical review. I thought it was a great idea! I’m considering installing this Crown boiler along and possibly a crown indirect hot water tank along with it.
I plan on downsizing in the next few years and the existing boiler is about 40 yrs old. HWT is about 17 yrs old. I get a very good price through a family member employee of the plumber’s supply store. I live in Northern NY with cold winters and nice summers. One concern is using the boiler to heat hot water all summer seems excessive but I’m told it’s the way to go. Thank you for any help or advice you can give. (more…)

HVAC Tip - A thermocouple is commonly used in standing pilot gas furnaces and water heaters are technically referred to as a copple element and produces millivolts when heat is applied to the tip. This millivoltage is necessary to keep the pilot valve inside the gas valve open. If the pilot flame goes out, the thermocouple stops generating millivolts. Without the millivolts, the valve closes thus preventing gas from escaping when there is no flame. Thermocouples fail because of oxidation. It is recommended that you keep the pilot lit throughout the year to prevent excess oxidation. The thermocouple can be found in many different types of gas furnaces, gas logs, and gas water heaters.
