indirect heaters

Matt_21 Member Posts: 140
i have a particular job where i only have 3' of height to install a boiler and indirect heater. i haven't done a load calc yet but the boiler will probably only be 100,000 - 120,000 btu. does anyone know a manu. who has a boiler and horizontal indirect to fit in this space.

    How much?

    ...room do you have side 2 side? Crown (and I'm sure other
    manufactures do also,I had a convertable upright or horz.Triangle Tube in my last house) makes a Model MSH-40H
    that is approx. 24" tall 24" deep and 35" long. with mabie a
    NTI Trinity or a Munchkin hung next to it?I don't know how much fun installation or serviceing would be though...

    If you only have 3ft clearance

    you can't stack boiler and indirect. Crown has the H40 and I think a 50gal horizontal was also comming out. Viessmann also has a SS horizontal. Buderus has horizonal tanks. (not SS). A few makers have smaller low boy model vertical tanks under 3ft like Peerless's 30 gal.

    There's a bunch of gas boilers that would fit, oil might limit you to 3-pass horizonal vent models like Crown Freeport, Biasi, Buderus and Viessmann.

    side to side

    i have plenty of room. this is a platform in the basement. it 's only purpose is to keep the equipment out of the water if there is a flood. i can make it as wide as i want it is only the 3' high that is the problem.

    Look into Buderus indirects, they make a very good horizontal unit.

    We have used them quite alot with no call backs to date.
