    We run a half-page ad in Plumbing & Mechanical each month.

    I'm putting together a new ad and I'd like to have a long list of things that someone new to the site will find at HeatingHelp.com. This will appear in small type as the ad's wallpaper.

    Find a job. Find a friend. Make a connection. Size a circulator. Compare products. Things like that.

    Will you help me come up with a list? Thanks.
    Retired and loving it.

    here's a few

    Why do a heat loss calculation BEFORE choosing boiler?

    Does my contractor know his stuff?

    How do I size my indirect HWH?

    Why are most boilers oversized?

    Should I convert from steam to hot water heat?

    What's often wrong with the lowest bid?

    Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Protection

    How to choose a contractor

    What's the best kind of heating system?

    Photos of proper heating installations

    Photos of nightmare heating installations

    Is a modulating condensing boiler the way to go?


    Dan obviously many of the same questions keep coming up...You have a wonderful search function and 'heating Q&A' which many new to the site don't use before they post. Perhaps there's a way to put a special large 'FAQ' or 'go here first' kind of button that has answers to some of the questions you're asking for here. Many wallies have posted great answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. At this point Steamhead has a standard pasted reply to those who want to convert from steam to hot water, etc. Of course ferreting out these answers--some of which you've already done--can be labor intensive.

    Thanks,

    Does it float?


    Steamy hot pictures

    Kinky pipes

    Dopey tricks

    Behind the scene boiler tours

    Unadulterated water closet talk

    Is it crank it up?

    Hot science made for fun

    Talk about the knuckleheads

    Drop that header

    Foreign travel connections

    Sewer talk

    Find people with your same problems and same passions

    Efficiencies discussed efficiently, whew

    Add balance to a busniess plan

    Cry over the utility bill

    Not a lot of hot air

    Blood money, hush money, how to just get paid

    Who's in hot water?

    A place to chill

    Hector who?

    The library, the books and so much more

    Confidence

    A wall of people who support each other brick by brick, prayer by prayer

    ...

    And before I go off floating on a cloud of steam, thanks Dan, for all that you do
