Last Sat. I went to HWZ Coal and got a ton of Blaschak, very nice people. He said I should of got a EFM, gave me some pointers and wished me luck. I had a awesome fire started Sunday morning boiler averaged 120-130* all day. Our temps were pretty nice all day so I let the fire burn out Monday in disappointment. I was in the shop at lunchtime and the temp with the warm days and cold nights is still 60* as of today so I know the heat call for the boiler is not that great to only drop 5* in the last few days.
I am going to be honest after four weeks of messing with the boiler my wife topped off the heating oil and fired our basement pellet stove and I shut the pumps off to the house . My buddy is a commercial heating/plumber and is coming over with a rep from Burnham to look things over on the Btu output . he thinks the primary loop pump is cooling the boiler quicker than it can recover.. Even if I shut all the zone pumps off the primary pump still has to run . I am hoping to be around Friday to meet with the dealers tech and see what solutions they have.
