In 2008, my wife, Dorian, and I moved to Albuquerque from Colorado to establish Outlaw Mechanical. Colorado taught me a few things about the need for tough, durable HVAC systems, so, today, about 40 percent of Outlaw’s work is hydronic.
Schulte Heating installs two Weil-Mclain Evergreen boilers
April 17, 2017
With failing boilers and an inefficient heating system, the historic Zion Episcopal Church needed guidance and help. The latest high-efficiency condensing boilers from Weil-McLain provided the answer to solve their heating woes.
The NOBLE Fire Tube Combi Boiler is designed for residential applications and offers three models ranging from 110,000-199,999 Btuh. The boiler features easy installation and serviceability, true instantaneous response time, and a user-friendly interface.
The Benchmark Platinum Boiler features dual-return capabilities that allow engineers to take full advantage of diverse load demands specific to a site in order to design the most efficient system possible. This boiler’s dual returns keep cold water separate, creating a large condensing zone in the heat exchanger that improves boiler efficiency.
Early last year, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) issued a final rule amending the minimum efficiency standards for residential boilers, which will go into effect Jan. 15, 2021. In addition, the DOE amended its test procedure for residential boilers.
This Internet of Things (IoT) and Wi-Fi-enabled smart condensate neutralizer is able to convert any water heater or boiler into a smart device, which ensures users never run the risk of acidic corrosion in drains and pipes. telliBot comes with robotic sensors that can remotely monitor water temperatures and warn users if there is any water leakage on the floor.
This wall-mount, gas-fired condensing boiler is available in combi and heat-only models. It provides 4 gallons per minute (gpm) of domestic hot water and is designed with a single-tube, large-diameter stainless steel heat exchanger.
The owner of a 2,800-square foot home in New Milford, Pennsylvania was experiencing uneven heat throughout the residence, limited hot water, and high utility costs. The installation of a new hydronic heating system helped drive home significant energy savings and ensure that “no place like home” feeling.
In this issue of The NEWS, we present the Residential Heating Showcase, featuring the latest heating equipment to hit residential HVAC. We also discuss developments in the tools and test instruments market.
