I have a Weil-McLain boiler (5 years old) and it is vented with a power
vent and intakes combustion air from inside (basement).
I am installing a fireplace on the main level and will be building a
chase for the chimney on the outside of my house. I was thinking this
would be a good time to convert my power vent to a real chimney for
long term durability as I could share the chase with both chimneys. I
don't know if this is feasible though since my boiler is not located
real close to the location of the fireplace. The boiler vent would
have to go 6 feet horizontal, then right angle and another 12 feet
horizontal then vertical for 25ft chimney height. Of course when I say
horizontal, I mean it could go at an incline when it is horizontal. I
would have a professional do all of this, but was curious if this is
even possible, or would I screw up the drafting and cause
Trying to educate myself before I call the pros. I really don't like
the powervent due to noise/smell outside the house. I could build a
new chase right above the boiler just for the boiler vent, but that
would be more money and time...trying to avoid.
20' run with at least one 90 and probably another one or two near the
boiler? I'd stay away from that. If this is an oil boiler you may be
able to go to sealed combustion with a different burner. That would
help the noise issue although a Tjernlund SS2 is about as quiet as a
Beckett burner. A sealed combustion Riello is VERY quiet.

I was considering using an SS-2 for a waste oil heater I am
installing....does this thing have inherent service problems? Literature on
waste oil heater (omni) says stack temp of 400 degress or less.
Thanks for the help
And a Merry Christmas to all
Fuck, don't worry about it. You can save a little bit of money. The worst
thing that might happen is that you will blow up your house and kill your
family, or maybe gas them in their sleep with O2 gas.
It ain't rocket science.
And you can take this to the bank, cause this homeowner below, knows all
about not making it past 8th grade....
If you had a clue, you would know it was a typo, and you would also know,
its not rocket science, but no one worth a damn is hiring anyone without a 4
year degree in the trade now.
A typo is something like "their for there" or a misspelling. Typing O2 vs.
CO takes some effort, and severe lack of knowledge.
Just because it took you 4 years to finish the 2 year tech school "course of
study" does not make it a 4 year degree. That requires accreditation, and a
lot more book learning that you grease monkeys could handle.
You are borderline illiterate, it must be a treat to work for you.
What the hell are you talking about? Now your rambling on about CO2, I
would be most concerned with CO. Notice the ONE OXYGEN, not TWO. Its one
of the products of incomplete combustion, CO2 would be the next stage. But
you probably learned all about that during your 4 years of intensive
training on how to own a business. Funny because it only took me an my
partner 10 minutes to file the papers, and boom we were incorporated.
Back to your literacy problem....what the fuck does this mean?
"Im this case, Im sure you work for someone, while I have those that work
for me, and I have news for ya, Oscar either baited you, or he typoed."
I've read it 20 times, and I cannot imagine what little thought you were
trying to convey? Are those commas supposed to be periods? Are they
complete thoughts? Let's take a stab at trying to punctuate this sentence
for the CB Moron:
I'm this case. I'm sure [that] you work for someone, while I have those
that work for me. I have news for you. Oscar either baited you, or he
I give up trying to fix that babbling. Are you trying to say that since
you apparently own some hack residential screw-shop slapping in Goodmans,
that makes you the expert on what Oscar meant when he warned of the dangers
of oxygen being in the house? Or somehow Oscar has devised a plan to trap
the unsuspecting newsgroup reader into responding to his ignorance?
I actually wasted my time on a real four year bachelors of science degree in
mechanical engineering from an accredited university along with a
Professional Engineering license, when I could have gotten one of those
highly coveted diplomas from the college of 4 YEAR APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
DESIGNED TO TRAIN BUSINESS OWNERS.
I did take some time to review your posting history. I have yet to find a
meaningful contribution by you on any subject related to HV or C. It's just
a bunch of posturing. It seems that you are really scared of the homeowners
of the world revolting and figuring out that they really don't need the
likes of you.
By the way, doing a load calc and picking a furnace matched with a condenser
and coil is not Rocket Surgery at all, and its embarrassing to have people
like you act like it is. I've designed 20 story buildings, with air
handlers in the millions of CFM, chiller rooms, steam plants, etc. That's a
2-year design task, something I wouldn't recommend an average homeowner do.
But to figure out the U value of 4 walls and a few windows, just about
anybody with any math skills can do that.
It's because people like you consider themselves experts that I am as
wealthy as I am, and will never run out of work.
I anticipate your reply after you sober up enough to get up off the trailer
floor and log back onto your WebTV account. Hopefully you won't sleep so
long that your mom will be watching her soaps when you get up. Then, please
will you STFU.
Is this piece of shit yours? http://www.carolinabreezehvac.com Did you have
some 7th graders design it for a class project? Pick a freaking font
already, its as scatterbrained as you are.
It means, you got baited again, and are just stupid enough to fall for it.
And btw....Goodman is a millionares dream come true....but no..if you had
half a brain, you would know what we install.
Sorry your job at Mcdonalds where you dream of getting to the fryer wont
allow you to buy one.
Any more flames you wanna be baited on to see how you really are?
Hint..this is another one.
