It really is a nice job ! Is it heating an apartment building? How do you size your pictures to get large shots like you do?

Beautiful setup. Dang, I want a boiler now......and hot water heat. I HATE my forced air system. Works fine, cheap to run, but noisy and drafty, as they all are. Best system I recall was a 1920's one pipe steam setup in a house we lived in on Long Island. Originally a hand fed coal boiler, but long ago converted to oil :cry:. This was around the mid/late 80's when I lived there. Nevertheless, it worked beautifully, and kept my room in the converted attic toasty with just a single radiator. The place was also full of asbestos - boiler cement, pipe insulation, millboard above the boiler....oh well - no lung cancer yet! :sick:


We only use the forced hot air to warm up the house if needed, if the Harman is low in the AM or out.
Steam heat with big radiators is my favorite.
That harman should never be out I started my firer on oct 27 and won't go out until may sometime you need a trip up next week when you pick-up your stoker I will take you and show you where the good breakers are then when you get your truck up and running you can come up anytime I am 72.6 miles south of Mr.Matthaus he will be coming down for another load next week sometime along with a few more members PM me or call me maybe we can get together talk to you later keep warm ;)
