Hi all, I am in Queens NYC and just had a new WM PEG-45 boiler put in last Saturday. I have convector style radiators throughout the house. (this is not the problem)
The pre-existing problem:
See attached set up.The room
: The room was converted from attic to a ~125 sqft bedroom in a cape style house. (before I bought the house) I recently had it re-insulated to code because I am just frustrated of it being cold all the time.The problem radiator 2C
: its the longest radiator in the house at close to about 5 feet or so and it doesn't warm up as fast as I would like it to. It's on a really long branch because its the last radiator on 2nd floor to warm up. I have a Maid-o-mist #D sitting on it for now. I have tried using Verivalve as fully opened but have not had any successful results.
- The new boiler is set cut in and out at a higher pressures. I believe its at 1.5 - 2.5. (can confirm later on as I am at work right now)
- The first radiator (2A) on the 2nd floor is now hissing. I am guessing this is due to the higher pressure from the boiler as it is the first one in line.
My next steps:
1. Reduce the pressure?
2. Replace the Hoffman 41 on the fist radiator 2A to a Gorton #4?
3. Replace the Maid-o-mist #D to Varivalve again?
Let me know what you folks think I should do...
P.S. 1st floor warms up super nice without any issues. (When I got my basement redone, i didnt find any Main vents on the 1st floor main.
