Boiler is piped to elec..water tank is that ok?
Hi,been doing hvac-r for awhile.I bought a 100 yr.old house .has a 130.000 btu , propane New Yorker hydronic boiler .I have very little exprierence with hydronics.
Been ordering books and trying to learn all I can to work on this house.
There are 9 cast iron radiators they are very large ,the house is 2 story 1600 sf.
There is also a weil-mclain oil boiler that ties into the elec. water tank. When oil prices dropped they would use the oil instead of propane. (Domestic water heater is separate )
My question is that on the New Yorker there is no bladder tank. There is on the return at the top of the pipe about 2 ft. From the circulating pump an automatic air vent.
I have ordered a extrol 90 tank to install . Before the circulating pump.
On the weil-mclain the bladder tank is piped on the pipe that the PT valve is on .
This doesn't seem right. Is it?
I want to take the electric water heater out of the system. Any thoughts on why the elec.water heater is there?
I have many pictures if you would please look at them. Thanks for any help
