Boiler Replacement on larger Webster Type R system finally ready to post
We originally looked at this system about a year ago. Two atmospherics tied together, using a condensate pump feeding into a duplex boiler-feed pump. The Burnham was still running but the Utica was toast. Copper steam piping, of course- we've seen this particular piping pattern many times before, just not on this scale.
The house was built in 1928. Much of the first floor radiation is in-wall convectors with outlets closer to the ceiling than the floor, which improved the draft above the elements. The traps for most of these are located in the basement.
I call this a larger system because it has two air traps. We've only seen one other Webster with multiple air traps- that one has three.
We called in a GC friend of mine, who I've known for years, to handle the demo. Thanks, Ed!
