Had the oil system torn out and replaced while working in Homer, AK, for the summer. It was up and running for a month before I saw it. Dad's a retired oil burner man/master plumber. Has Parkinsons and can't handle a huge job like that now. He did go check it out when it was done. Mom said he walked into the basement and his jaw dropped. Stunned, was what he was. Said he would have done it the same way, wanted to know who the piper was, who laid it out.

Wondering what other people are getting for burn times on coal, and wood if they're using it. Have set high limit to 180-185, with 20 degree differential. Have slightly higher stack temperatures with wood that way and it seems to draft better. I like the circulator between the boilers set at 140 degrees, with the check valve once it shuts down no water change between the two boilers occurs. If the WC90 goes out, the fan keeps running... not sure I like that.
Didn't put the barometric damper in. I know, I know. Contractor fears them with burning wood, and my cousin who sells and installs fireplaces, chimneys, woodstoves, and is getting into boilers and furnaces isn't keen about them. If there is a chimney fire, and I do not see how there cannot be without cleaning biweekly with the reduced stack temperatures, it's going to be a bad one. Unrestricted airflow through a chimney fire could resemble Chernobyl within a short time.
