Glenn, thanks for the follow up on the issue with the boilers, I hope they get that straightened out. One more item I am not sure I mentioned before, Could you check with them about handles on the front covers. There is no holes or knobs or handles to get those covers on and off and fit quite tight at that. Thanks again for all your help, Tim.

    I agree with you Tim. I am a homeowner and I have a new burnham boiler and it has two holes in the front panel. You have to lift and put your fingers between the panel too get the front cover off. It would be much easier if the unit came with handles. Why dont they have them? To me its a no brainer. I will probably drill some holes and put a handle on the panel myself. Jim

    You should be able to just lift up on that front jacket panel from the bottom and swing out the bottom and the top will drop right out.

    If I'm not mistaken......

    ....the older residential Burnham's had little knobs on the front cover.

    I actually prefer the new style "finger holes" as they are better looking (imho), more sturdy, and less likely to be a problem like the knobs used to be.
