New Installation Questions
I just had a new boiler installed. I have a couple of concerns I wanted to ask about on here before having the installer convince me everything was done correctly.
First, the electrician put conduit against the smoke pipe. I think this could melt the insulation on the wires inside? Next, the bypass is installed a little differently than what the manufacturer documents show. shouldn't there be another valve after the bypass and just before the return water enters the boiler? My last concern is that they crimped on the bigger diameter pipes from the new boiler to the smaller pipes from the old boiler just before it goes into the iron pipes from the old gravity system. Shouldn't the copper pipes from the new system be connected directly to the large iron pipes with out having three different size pipes?
I'm not sure how big an issue these things are, or hopefully there is no issue and I'm just worried for no reason because I don't completely understand all of this. After spending so much money I really want to be sure we have a good system that will reliably last for many years. I'd really appreciate opinions on this. Thanks so much.
