Sizing a room/closet for a Peerless WV-DV-04
Hi folks, just found this forum, which looks AWESOME.
Thanks for offering this resource, Dan.
We're replacing our old boiler, which used to be in a closet that we plan to fully demolish.
The new boiler is likely to be a Peerless WV-DV-04. I'd like to locate the new boiler in a corner of a new basement room that's being constructed, in which it will be direct-vented through a 2x6" side wall.
We heat with water (not steam), and, FYI, we plan to also install an indirect for domestic hot water (which will be located away from this boiler in a different closet.)
I'd like to enclose the boiler in a closet, since the rest of the basement will be a finished room; and would like comments from the community on what they think is possible.
I.e. what's the smallest depth & width that could be workable? If a 5.5 feet closet depth to the (venting) wall was a maximum, then what closet width would be needed for this model? (Would this even be possible?)
Naturally it should accommodate adequate clearance for periodic maintenance and servicing, along with ducting for the sidewall direct vent.
I'm presuming the closet door(s) would open to the front of the boiler.
I've looked at the manuals, but think I need "the pros" to comment on what works in reality when enclosing a boiler, ducts & pipes.
Finally, any additional suggestions on how to best minimize the noise from such a boiler?
Many, many thanks, everyone!
