Who sells panel rads in Mass area?

Hello, we have a bigger rad job, our normal vendor is waiting for a container to cross the pond, I realize Buderus has rads yet I need some 33's, are there other vendors in Mass in case I want to make a road trip? Hydronic Alternative normally has the stock for normal jobs but this is a bigger one and we kinda want to get this job done sooner than later- it's nice to have work after the nasty dormant season.



Thanks, Gary Wilson

    I'm being told the container is due in round mid may, if it's running late I will look these people up.

    Runtal

    represented by Tunstall Associates in Chicopee. They are made in MA, in Bradford, near Haverhill. Not the cheapest but about the best. While most are custom, they have a stock line of limited styles as you probably know.



    My fallback might be Veha, stocked in Tamworth, NH. Very similar to the Buderus and Myson stamped steel style.

    Gary you need to find another wholesaler

    The folks I am guessing you are dealing with. PSG, maybe, are notorious for poor order follow through. Try Webb, Betts Piping,or Bayststate. Or even Granite supply.
    Cost is what you spend , value is what you get.

    yes Charlie

    They treat me pretty well in general. On a job like this I am not gonna sit around though; we got stuff to do. I think the building owner would feel better if we don't knock out the steam system just yet anyway, so a couple of weeks is OK. One thing I am wondering about is when they don't have the rads I want I can always pay more for the next bigger rad....I am not sure how I agreed to that arrangement!

    cast?

    I thought about that but the new rads will be bigger considering the btu drop when switching to hw. You talking BB?



    This building is an oldie, no insulation in the walls, I am coming up with 12,000 btu for the living room. 33 600-1200



    We're gonna store the rads, 48 nice big column style two-pipe rads. We already have one new job we're looking at where we'll be able to unload some of them.

    ahhh

    I missed the first question- the land lord wants the tenants to pay for their own heat. 8 new boilers going in. I started talking to these people 6 years ago about this. It's a classic vapor system, are the parts worth anything? It has a classic looking gauge glass that measures ounces. We may take the vapor parts for souvenirs.

    I have a shelf of old gauges

    I can not bring myself to through them in the scrap, they look too nice. I can see wanting to separate out utilities. If you were just going to scrap the old radiators I was going to say call me first. I do not move many but I do like to have a few on hand just in case I need one. I would not be too quick to toss the vapor parts.
