Answer: 
This boiler and in fact most gas steam boilers will make very little noise. If there is noise from a steam system and there can be, that is usually a result of improper installation or the system design or layout. The most common example of this is called surging; which can be a very loud banging noise caused by steam leaving the boiler coming in to contact with condensate water returning to the boiler.

This boiler and in fact most gas steam boilers will make very little noise. If there is noise from a steam system and there can be, that is usually a result of improper installation or the system design or layout. The most common example of this is called surging; which can be a very loud banging noise caused by steam leaving the boiler coming in to contact with condensate water returning to the boiler. Steam is often described as a forgotten art; as most plumbers do not deal with it a lot and are not often trained on it. With steam the "near boiler piping" meaning the piping that is with in 5'-10' of the boiler, is actually part of the boiler. It must be piped specifically for that boiler. Often we see people cutting a pipe or two of and old steam boiler and sliding in new one. No consideration is given to the different requirements of the new versus the old. This results in a system that will not function properly, This is only one example of a potential steam problem. If you are considering changing your boiler due to noise I would suggest you find the source of the noise to you can be assured that there is not a way to fix it without changing the boiler and if you must change it, that the new one will not also be prone to noise. With steam you need to look at the entire system not just one component of it. With steam the problem may not be near the symptom. You are welcome to call me at 978 651 3301 Chris Read Less

Answer: 
First this unit only produces steam for heat, it is not equipped with to make hot water at all. There are models that do, but this is not one of them. As to its capacity, that would be 98000 BTU's in the form of 408 Square Feet of steam. BTU's are a unit of energy and Square footage of steam is a measure of volume, My point is with steam you not only need a certain amount of energy but it needs to be in Read More
First this unit only produces steam for heat, it is not equipped with to make hot water at all. There are models that do, but this is not one of them. As to its capacity, that would be 98000 BTU's in the form of 408 Square Feet of steam. BTU's are a unit of energy and Square footage of steam is a measure of volume, My point is with steam you not only need a certain amount of energy but it needs to be in sufficient volume to fill the installed radiators and pipes. I have seen situations where people have enough BTU's to heat the house but lack the amount of volume. So there is not enough steam to reach the furthest radiators. In most situations involving steam I first ask the people if the boiler they are replacing adequately heated the structure. If it had, which is usually the case, I tell them to start the process by looking on the rating plate of the current boiler. For the last 150 years boilers have had to had rating plates on them. It will tell you the Manufactures name, Model number, Serial number, input value in BTU's, out put value in BTU's and the sqaure footage of steam. From this information we can start the process of selecting the appropriate boiler. One last thing. Steam in many ways is a forgotten art. So many trades people do not know it. So make sure the person who does you install knows about steam or follows the manual. With steam the piping within 5' if the boiler is critical. If not piped in accordance with the install manual the boiler will surge and never work correctly. People often blame the appliance for what is actually bad install. If you have questions please feel free to give me a call. Chris 978 651 3301 Read Less

Answer: 
This is a steam boiler so it is designed for a steam heating system. However you are asking me if it can supply water for a hyrdonic radiator. So I must assume you are asking me if you can pull water off the boiler and return it to the boiler below the water line. I have seen that done.If I mam properly understanding your question I would suggest you go to the Slant Fin web site and print out the Read More

That way they can see the tappings that are available and decide if it will work in your application. If you have other questions please feel free to give me a call. Chris 978 651 3301 Read Less
