Winter Love ( for wetheads)

I think it stays around 70 year round, more or less.

    Real Nice

    Love that Silver and Orange stuff! I'm curious as to how well that flue muffler works. I have a couple installs that due to room acoustics and the location, the burner noise is quite loud and I considering recommending a muff to the customers. Don't want to tell them to buy something that delivers marginal performance.

  • silencer

    On this particular job,the owner did not ask about AFUE ratings,boiler brands or the expected longevity of the new system. Her only question was " will it be quiet ? " The silencer cuts down on the high frequecy sound fairly well (50%?) especially when using the riello burner.You will still hear the lower rumble of combustion,but overall you can expect a much quieter system.Check to be sure that the silencer will fit without major boiler repiping.I buy my units from Viessman but Selkirk makes a more compact unit if the situation requires.To cut down on sound further you should seal all joints with Hi-Temp silicone and insulate all vent piping.Another option if you do not have the space for a silencer is to fit the boiler with a Beckett NX burner,I find them to be resonably quiet. Good Luck.
