Weil Mclain to Weil Mclain Boiler

I have found especially with customers with boilers, a safety replacement factor. Meaning the customer has lost faith that their boiler is a safe peice of equipment, regardless of how much money they can throw at it…. for their peice of mind they really would prefer to replace it.

In this case the boiler had experienced a flame roll out, meaning flames rolled out of the burn chamber and shorted out the igniter wires, this of coarse sent a electrical burning smell throughout the home. After inspection and talking to the home owner we both came to the conclusion it was time for replacement.

Above is the Weil Mclain boiler that is 28+ years old, even though the cast boiler section is sound, most of the components are still 28+ years old. Never mind looking into the reason for the flame roll out … more than likely a plugged section in the boiler.

As you can see the new Weil Mclain boiler slid right into place. The pump, zone valves, thermostats, drain valves and expansion tank where all replaced at the same time. We added Dielectric unions to the supply and return lines.
