Will better main venting decrease my boilers' runtime?
When it fires up my radiators whistle a bit, partly because the boiler is grossly oversized by at least 80-100K, and there are no main vents. My gas bill is high but I'm thinking that if the steam can get to my radiators quicker then they can heat- up quicker and lower my fuel consumption. Every little bit helps until I can afford to replace the boiler and near boiler piping.
Currently from a cold-start I get steam at the last radiator in the line in about 20-25 minutes and the first radiator in the line in about 12-16 minutes. 1100 SQ feet. Second floor of a two level building.
Thoughts? Opinions? All are welcome.
Thanks in advance.
