General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / Question
« on: December 08, 2016, 09:15:31 AM »
I have had my boiler for 8 years and unless I'm losing it, which is possible. I was in the basement this mourning and my furnace kicked on, it actually lit and the fan kicked on. My boiler is running and everything is fine with it, temperature, flow, everything seems to be fine with it . Why, unless I'm forgetting something is the furnace lighting?  It should just kick on the fan. What's the problem?  Did I forget something?

General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / Damper door iceing over
« on: January 05, 2014, 07:25:19 PM »
Having big blizzard here in  Indiana everything is shut down all county roads are closed. My problem is my damper door is freezing open and shut from the snow blowing around it so bad. You can't stand to be out there long. I went out there a little while ago it was calling for the fan to kick on and the fan was froze on it, I beat on it a little and it came on but it's going to be a  terrible long night if I have to go out like that all night and that's if the fan motor doesn't go out. Anyone have any suggestions?????  Can't really hang anything on it and tie it down either.
Supposed to get to -20 below tonight!!!

General Outdoor Furnace Discussion / Over heating problemW
« on: March 25, 2012, 09:12:17 PM »
We have been gone all weekend, I had put in enough wood to have a fire going for just heating the water to make it till Sat. night or Sun. morning. Well we didn't get home till 8 o'clock this evening and my fire was out, so I made fire real quick and got it going pretty good and looked at my site tube and it is very low on water my pump has been running all weekend.
Well I looked all around no leaks and finally looked  in the back and below one of the shutoff valve's is a little puddle and I wiped my hand under it and got a wet hand. My question is do I fill a pretty low boiler that is at 155 degrees with cold water or not??? I do have quite a bit wood in it to get it hot

 So far so good !!!  It hasn't been a very harsh winter so far but I bet the worst is yet to come!!!   It's been running great!!!  I don't foresee any problems.

Back in December I decided to try to hook my hot tub up to my wood boiler and I was kind of worried about screwing something up and I didn't want to miss anything up on my hot tub. So after talking on the forum about this topic I liked Blaine's idea the best. I called him on the phone and talked to him for quite awhile. I ordered HE and the mixing valve from him. He sent a detailed diagram of how it should be plumbed and also told me if I had any questions to just call him he even gave me his cell!! Well we put it all together and it didn't take all that long and it is working fantastic!!!!!  I'm so glad to not have to pay the electric bill to heat that thing any more.
Blaine could't of been more professional or more helpful in his task to help me!!!

Thank you so much,

I know there have been discussions about this before but I couldn't find anything about this through SEARCH.
I have a friend who is installing a boiler and asked me to find out for him
