Cruise Control for Your Oil Burner to Save Money


The Beckett HeatManger is a microprocessor controlled device that will manage the on/off cycles of your boiler. Every time your boiler has to shut down and then restart your have just lost a bit of efficiency. By reducing the start/stop cycles of your boiler you not only reduce fuel consumption, but you also reduce wear on the parts of the boiler and emissions coming from your boiler. Your burner burns very inefficiently on startup and shut down. When I have my combustion analyzer on a burner it goes crazy with bad gasses right after shutdown.

If you have a fuel oil or gas fired boiler and you are wondering how you can save money on your heating bill without replacing your boiler then I have good news for you! By adding a simple device to the burner of your boiler you can be saving at least 10% in minutes

With this control if your thermostat requests heat and the HeatManager has sensed that there is heat available in the boiler, it will not start the burner until the heat is used up. When the burner is running, the HeatManger will optimize the runtime to match the boiler output to the load.

The unit is very easy to install. It is mounted to the junction box under the relay and wired into the normal burner relay wiring. There are a couple of sensors that need to be attached. One senses the supply water temperature for heating, coming out of the boiler and the other senses domestic hot water boiler supply temperature.

Even if you would decide to get a professional to install this unit you will be on the road to saving big dollars while only spending few hundred bucks. Then when the price of fuel oil and natural gas begins to rise again, which it will this winter, you will be getting even more savings from your small investment.

Saving money is always a good thing, but when you can combine saving money with greater comfort than I would call that a great thing!

I have a coleman modulating furnace it is propane The buners seem to be corroding


There are 2 types of burners. Atmospheric (or ribbon) type & inshot. I would imagine yours are Atmospheric...the longer type burners that protrude into the heat exchanger if they are corroding. Which also means you have an older furnace. Condensation can occur if there is not enough removal of flue gas...or... water is getting down into the burner from the flue. Have someone check the draft pressure to see if it has a proper draw when running. Coleman Evcon also made a furnace that is called a blendaire system. This system has a lower control board @ the furnace & and upper control board in a fan on the roof. The purpose of the fan was to blend air into the return from outside via roof fan to introduce fresh air in a tightly enveloped manufactured home, along with pressurizing the attic space to help keep the attic dry. If you have this type of system, your motor may be not working on the roof. Good luck!

How old is your furnace? Does it have a circuit board that controls everything, or are there separate controls for each function?

New Vaillant 360 eco plus boiler, takes almost 3/4s an hour for rads to come up to a decent temp. Hot water is fine. Called out install Engineer who is an excellent tradesman but he says everything


We have just had our old system boiler replaced with a vaillant ecotec plus 837 and sounds like a similar working operation to ours. At first I was a little concerned,but I was told by our installer that he was told by vaillant that these very latest boilers size the system on start up for about 10 mins, then take temperature to target flow which you set boiler at. So even by setting target flow temperature very high you still get the initial sizing cycle, which ours was about 30-35c temp. These boilers seem to run biased for efficiency as after a while they modulate the boiler burner down and the radiators run more on the side of warm than really hot like the old type boilers. You also get better efficiency as at lower temperature the boiler condenses better. You will also find you get a more constant temperature in your home rather than over shoots. I was concerned at first, shame there was no info/explanation in user manual as people do need to know that this is normal operation. We are used to ours now, took a month and by the way these boilers can make a creaking noise but was told this normal expansion/ contraction but annoying when sited in bedroom cupboard. Best of luck!

I have an older coleman oil gun burner, it was running fine until yesterday it just quit.I took it apart cleaned everything put it back together itcame on an ran for six cycles and now it want do anything.


If it does nothing, then its most probably the "primary control" the one with the red reset button. If it does make noise but the motor does not run, it could be a bad burner motor. If its real old system, then it could be the old stack control in the flue pipe which also has a reset and if this is what you have, then try reseting by the red button and if it works,that then have it changed by a professinal to a more modern style primary control soon.

How to operate a coleman two burner stove using liquid fuel


If you are talking about the old type that runs on Coleman fuel, start by putting some oil in the hole beside the pump knob to make sure that the gasket is lubricated. Fill with fuel and pump it up, keeping your thumb over the hole in the end of the pump knob. When you have pumped up enough pressure, turn on and light the main burner, then secondary burner if necessary.
