Hole or Crack in my Steam Boiler?
I've had some work on my burner recently ( trying to get the heat to 2 of my back rooms a little better )it's a one pipe system. The main vents were changed, the radiator vents were also changed on some and the radiators also they were pitched back to make sure that wasn't the problem, a new pressuretrol and low water cut-off were replaced. After all that it really hasn't made much difference.The house is 3 stories with the thermostat on the first floor. The only way I can get enough heat to those rooms is to do one of two things; put the thermostat to 73( now I have to keep it at 72 to keep it comfortable )or turn off the radiator on the first floor for awhile (which seems to work the best). The steam guy said I might have a crack or hole in the burner, there is no leaking water around the burner, he said it might be above the water line and look for steam coming out of the chimney. there is steam coming out but I've noticed steam also coming out of the 3 houses around me in the early morning.I don't know how old the burner is and I would like to figure this out before I just go and replace it.
Anybody have any ideas? Thanks, Russell
