Boiler, buffer, ZCP, dual fuel (hr)

hr Member Posts: 6,106
This plug and play system will fit in a 28" wide space. A small 6 gallon buffer will feed the ZCP in this location, although this isn't the correct ZCP for the job. An air handler stand organizes the components and is adjustable.

I will leave the element in the hw tank for summer use of a small radiant bathroom, (slab on grade) zone allowing them the ability to use the small buffer as a heat sourse and not fire, and short cycle the boiler, for the small floor warming load. The electric could also be a standby in the event of a boiler break down.

The electric tank is well insulated, 2" foam and fiberglass. I found a anode rod in the top which I removed to allow an extra connection. 1" copper by 3/4" mip adapters allow a quick jump in size.

Again I will try to run a 40 degree delta t on the boiler, maybe post purge the boiler heat into the buffer at the end of every boiler cycle. Waiting for a Taco post purge extension to use for this.

    I always admire your work - you always offer a different "slant" on installation options.

    Most photo editors - including the one that should have come with your camera - offer a "rotate" feature. Usually you just open your image, click the rotate feature until you achieve the orientation you desire then resave the image with that orientiaion.

    Best Regards & keep your stick on the ice.
