    There's a real gem huh ?
    Maybe some of these poor consumers could start a class action against the utilities who actually give rebates for this install . Yes , Virginia , they do pay rebates and incentives for this garbage . As a matter of fact 70% of the so called century club (100 jobs per annum) installs look only a bit better than this . But hey , the high efficiency unit is installed right ?

    Yes it's very high efficient when the boiler is firing up to 180f on a 50f day.
    First floor zone is a mix of rads and cast iron baseboard.
    Second floor and third floor are cast iron baseboard as well.

    That's what you get when you drop the helper off in the morning with a box of parts and a torch, go to the bar until four o'clock and then pick him up and collect the customers money.

    You really cant even critique it because you can't tell what the hell is going on.

    What was the complaint?

    Thats some unique gas piping. I guess its at least not CSST.

    Complaint was first floor no heat. Aka bottom circulator. The wiring connection was broken in the wire nut.
    Turned unit back on up stairs zone was running and getting nice and hot. Down stairs pump was running but Not heating up once you turn the upstairs off the down stairs zone heats up no problems.

    They said this has been a problem since they bought the house a few years ago.

    I wonder if their home inspector gave it his blessing, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Ahhh. But it is csst. Not even bonded the right way. Note the floor flange on the floor, the tee and where it goes back to another appliance.

    I will say the cast iron baseboard and rads where really nicely painted and in great shape.

    That's not heavy enough wire to bond.
