Sandy Boiler Replacements and the Sooting Phenomenon???
I live in the Long Island,NY region and I replaced many hurricane Sandy destroyed boilers. Its now 2-3 months since those jobs were completed and so far, 3 of my gas boiler replacements have been call backs, that the heat is out. I get to the houses and all of them have been so badly sooted up, that the flame roll out switches have activated. with burn marks near them.(one had wires melted together before roll out switch shut it down) They aren't all the same boiler manufacturer. In all the cases, I was there to get heat in the house, so the contractors could work through the winter to rebuild the interior of houses. It seems the heavy dust (all the boilers were covered in dust) from the construction is the cause of the problem. Has anyone had a similar problem.
One of the contractors told me in his 30 years fixing up houses, he's always made "some dust" and he never heard of sooting boilers because of it. Here I believe the difference is boilers were operating during the construction period so the hotter lighter air going up chimney and cold sheetrock dust filled air rushing in caused sections to clog.
Anyone experiencing similar Sandy related or construction instances where in 2 months time, they got completely sooted would be greatly appreciated.
