Concerns about recent boiler installation
Yesterday a local heating contractor completed installation of a new modulating, condensing boiler for me. Last evening I did some reading in the instruction manual and now I have three concerns. Probably my first concern relates to the relative locations the exhaust and intake vents. They are four inches apart, on center. The manual states a minimum of twelve inches. The exhaust vent extends out about eight inches farther than the intake. How big a problem is this? They did not install the screens on the ends of the vents. When I asked them about this, they told me that the screens cause more trouble by collecting ice and therefor blocking the vents. Should I nstall screens, yes or no? The outside temp unit was installed on the west side of the house, while the manual says that it should be on the north side. Should I move it? Thanks for your help.
