Last February, I got a call from a Franciscan Sister in Kansas City, MO. Sister Mary Clare was looking for advice about their heating system. She had done a lot of homework and I helped as much as I could from afar. I asked a local rep to stop by and take a look and that was very helpful.
Here's the heating story in Sister Mary Clare's own words:
We had the hydronic boilers replaced when we moved here, and since then we have spent a lot of time trying to correct some mistakes. We noticed a piping error and a problem with the controller, which our current mechanical contractor corrected for us. The boiler operated much more efficiently, but still needs more regular attention than we would like to give it, considering our first duties to God. After reading technical manuals, consulting experts from around the country, and visiting several times with our Mechanical Contractor, we are all in agreement that we can take the next step and add, move, and replace some key components to make the system more stable, and we hope even more efficient. We are not trying to create our “dream boiler,” just something that will keep us out of the boiler room and away from bleeding radiators all the time, so that we can focus on more important duties. The cost of this project should not exceed $14,000.

Oh, and Sister Mary Clare said they were praying for all of us. That's powerful stuff.
Retired and loving it.
