Tiny boiler

adambuild Member Posts: 413
Any ideas? Saw a water heater at a client's house today that's feeding baseboard. Total butcher job! What a disaster! We were there the whole day installing a gas line for a new cooktop in the kitchen. The entire time (6 hours) we were there, the B&G LR100 never shut off! Talk about "pumping away!" Tons of air noise! What a waste of fuel! I bet the client doesn't even know to shut it down when the weather gets warm outside. I did a heat loss calc and came up with a load of 26000btu/hr and would like to propose an inexpensive and efficient replacement. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance, Adam

    How do they make their hot water? This will give a bit better insight. Chris

    Load went up to 30,033btu/hr as a result of client requesting 2 basement rooms be added to project.

    Check out Slantfin

    I think they have some little gas fired models
