Recently purchased and moved into older home with a hydronic radiant heat system with boiler. Upon running the system in the colder temps, we are hearing a gurgling sound recurring in some of the runs


typically hydronic systems like that need to be bled, start with the highest radiator, the bleed valve have a little square head and you need to have a key that fits them, most supply HVAC houses have them sitting on the counter but you can ask them for one.

Make : Weil-McLain Model : CG-5-SPDN Series 12 I have the above mentioned boiler which is located on the 1st level of a three story one family house, the area where the boiler is located is insulated.


You don't have an optimum distribution of steam in your house. Try closing a little bit the valves supplying the heaters in the lower floors. Close a little bit more until you get the desired balance.

Installed Amana PTAC DigiSmart unit in a patio room, a entertainment bar is located about three feet (3) in front of unit and not the room. The unit only heat and cool the area between unit and the bar...


I have seen this happen many times and if you cannot relocate the bulb of the thermostat to keep it form short cycling, I have mounted a wall thermostat and disconnected the thermostat in the PTAC and wired it in to the wall stat. You may have to install a wall stat in the center of the room away from the bar.

No hot rads down stairs boiler comes on 3 miniutes then of again


Hello
By your post im guessing you have a 2 story house.
Have a look at the boiler,water pressure guage.Should be between 12 and 15 psi 140 to180.f when running.
If its above or close to 30 psi the relief valve will open to let off the pressure,we do not want this to happen normally.

If you have high water pressure at the boiler you will need to go to the highest radiator or any one on the second floor and open the bleeder.Looks like this

http://www.ourfixerupper.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/11/cast-iron-radiator-02.jpg

Carefully open it slow into a bucket,let air out until you get a steady stream of water.Do this to all of the radiators,idealy using a bleeder key or needle nose pliers.This may take some time.

Once we can assume all the air is out,check your water pressure again should be 15 to 20 psi.If you have no pressure then your auto fill valve is bad.If you have 15 to 20 then proceed.
Raise the temp of the t stat to start the boiler.6 degrees above whatever the room temp is.
If you still are having problems your t stat may be faulty.If your boiler is at 15 to 20 psi 140 to 180.f and it still shuts down after 3 min your return pump may be bad.

Hope this is helpfull

Haier 9000 btu; not able to set temp


Setting temps on a Wall unit or a window unit - depends on where the Unit is in the room ( area), the stat in the unit is reacting to the the return air ( at the Unit) . If the Unit is not large /small enough then you will have a problem - 1. To Cold near the Unit and to warm the further away you are from it.
2. If the Unit is facing a wall to close, the unit can short cycle ( entire room will be warm). Dedending on the room and heat load - check and see if the Unit is the proper size. " to much of a good thing " is bad - not enough maybe to ( not cooling the area properly). #3 Control is defected ( age of Unit ? )

Reverse cycle air conditioning unit theremostat is only a couple of feet away from return air vent. The room where the vent and thermostat are located is in the middle of a building and has no windows....


ok i will try if there is only one return then you need one move the stat= thermostat to a area where temp is about same as the outside rooms. and have a retrun in each room near to the back of the room away from windows. if can not move the stat then move the returns. do have cool air on the windows if not you need to move them the air duct! or are there any supply in the middel room? if there are then ether remove them or greatly reduse the amount of air to that room do it at the unite if you can, a Dapper.Basic idea here is you find your Heat or cool load which is the windows.
so need your air on them. if you leave your return where it is are the door touching carpet it should have about 1" to 1"1/2 off the bottom so air can to the retrun. Hope this helps Paul

Unbalanced cooling or heating


You need to balance the system. It's a matter of adjusting the dampers or registers so that you have a little less air flow near the T-stat and more to the other end of the house. Likely you have a return vent near the T-stat. That return draws air to it and likewise the T-stat. If you are getting a lot of air out of the registers on that end of the house damper them to force more air to the other end of the house. Do not close them entirely though. You may have to play with it a little to get it right. I hope this helps. Please remember to rate Fixya rate me.

I have a vitodens 100-w combi boiler and tried to turn the heating on just to give it a working as was advised. However, I have no heat coming to my radiators. The boilers seems to be working as my hot...


Here's the deal: If your Vitodens 100 has outdoor temperature sensing capability, either built in or via external aftermarket control such as Tekmar or other, and the temperature outside is above warm weather shut down (WWSD), then the boiler will not operate for space heating, but will operate to make Domestic Hot Water (DHW) only. Generally speaking WWSD is facoty set at 20*C, since this is normal room temperature so the boiler will not need to operate at temperatures above this number as it is warm enough outdoors to heat the house to comfortable levels.
If your Vitodens 100 does not have outdoor temperature sensing capability then you should check to see if your room thermostats are operational and calling for heat since the boiler is only responding to this on-off control based on room temperature. (turn up your room thermostats)
In both cases you need to make sure that your heating system's distribution pump and zone valves are operating correctly.
In any case you should be calling a heating contractor if you suspect that there is a problem with your boiler and/or heating system.
Good luck.
