Relocate boiler and water heater
Posted 01 November 2006 - 02:42 AM
What I would like to do is move my oil fired boiler and oil fired water heater to an outside wall. It is currently smack in the middle of my basement. I guess you can figure out where my chimeny is also. Thats right! It runs right thru the middle of the house. The chiminey is failing bad and must be replaced. Relining is not an option.
What I am looking for is a practicle and cost effective way to pipe it. My first question is. Do they make a direct vent retro kit? If not is double wall flu pipe good enough or do you need triple wall? If Im correct. single wall would not keep the gases warm enough and create problems down the road. Yes or no? I would also like to know what the formula for the rise and run is. The last question is I D . What size would I need
1) direct vent retro 3) rise,run
2) Type of pipe 4) ID size

oil heat burners are way to hot to try to relocate plus you have the soot factor
get another stack or go to gas.
