  • Have a customer

    who had this(original pic),,so because of fuel costs, he gave me the job of changing to a TT Solo 110, which I obliged.
    Anyway,,stopped-in today to change the indirects stat(another story), and he`s complaining about high humidity on the windows,,I "suspect" the reasons, but anyone else had these complaints after installing new equipment?

    change in infiltration factor.

    Did the original boiler provide the domestic hot water? Reason I ask is if original equipment was all gravity vented then the change to two pipe sealed combustion may have changed the infiltration factor to the house.
  • That`s what I was thinking,

    Mars, he had a power vented HWH before.
    Crappy windows in 1/3rd of the house, but the guns turned in my direction while there.

    Power vented water heater and combustion air to mechanical room

    Well as I see it Dave if he had a power vented water heater and a gravity boiler in the old mechanical room, and a new sealed combustion system was installed. The infiltration factor to the house must have changed. just my two cents.
