Looks like I will finally get to fire the boiler up tonight.



Anyone else stoked about the heating season coming back?

    boiler

    Working in San Fran for 20 yrs I remember that part of September and October were the only months you could shut down boilers for more than a week.  In July 2011 it never got above 60 degrees the whole month.  But starting my career in Denver yrs ago I know what you mean, I always loved the smell of an old boiler room when firing up the boiler in the fall.

    Let's not rush things!

    Jeez, guys. I'm still trying to finalize the piping with Slantfin and convince a friend of a friend he needs to move up the date to go in business for himself, and start with MY install. He's a total pro, but no moonlighting. The other installer doesn't seem to know much more than i do, when all was said and done. I still have two good pipe fitters, but need someone to take all the elements and put it together. Not a DIY job, but I've sometimes felt it turning out to be one!!!

    Names

    You named your boiler Cedric? :)



    I guess I could call mine "Mr McClain" but I would have to use a German accent.







    Joe, it's supposed to get down to 37F here in NW NJ tonight. Its already 48F so my windows are closed.

    Fall and Winter ? YES!

    I have to admit that I am looking forward to firing the new baby up again. I still need to drain it down and flush it out with a wand. When I refill it I will run it about 30 minutes after steaming begins, but I'm waiting for a spell of really cool weather to do that.



    We have been down in the 40s several nights here in the QC, but due to the amount of extremely hot weather we had before the temperature finally dropped, The building is still warm, about 72 throughout.
