Tight install

Just finished this one today. Think I need to lose a few pounds after being in this closet for a couple of days.

    It takes a real mechanic to do a neat well laid out job in a tight space. Kudos

    Nice shoehorn work! thanks for the Caleffi use.

    Is that a custom heat shield inside the door?

    Nice work. Small places are hard to work in, but when all works out, its very rewarding.

    Sweet! Where'd you hide the indirect?

    Yes that heat shield is from the old boiler. The customer is going to do a new one that goes 3/4 of the way across the door. I like the propress zone valves and when you get the 5 year warranty when using the zone control its a no brainer.

    If you look at the pic from the back of the boiler its tucked way in the back of the closet.

    Very nice indeed. I love how nothing is directly above the burner. Like many of us....if I had a dollar for every time I stood up from a kneeling position at the burner and cracked my head...sometimes more than once on the same call...

    What's the actual name of the thermal switch mounted above the boiler?

    I wouldn't mind adding that to my system even though it's not required here.

    @ChrisJ That would be an electrical Firomatic. Cuts power at 165 degrees if I remember right

    To the best of my knowledge, thermal switches are required in MA?
