Help - Boiler at 3800 ppm CO
I recently purchased a house in December of 2019. Different issues keep coming up. Looking for expert advice on what to do.
During the home inspection the inspector noted it needed an expansion tank and a pressure relief valve. So I contacted (2) companies to quote me on the parts that needed changed. First company came back with $ to replace the parts. I thought $ was too expensive. I called a 2nd company to come out and give me a quote. Well I asked the 2nd company to just do a boiler service first then quote.
The 2nd company started the service and got 3800 ppm CO with the boiler. He said by law he had to stop because it was 3800 ppm. He recommended replacing the boiler, instead of taking it apart to clean it.
Boiler is a Hydrotherm - 24V - Model HC-85. Serial number is OW2860, which when I called Hydrotherm it is pre-1967.
The seller did not disclose the age of the boiler, nor did the home inspector catch this.
My questions are:
1. 3800 ppm CO is high, I think deadly is over 200 to 300 ppm. Can this be fixed for it to last (1) more winter?
2. Does home warranty cover this for a replacement ?
