Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
Hello, tell me please which direction you are from the center of the nearest city so that I can assess the local heating contractor availability and talent pool in the area.
You will need an onsite inspection by a local well qualified heating and air conditioning contractor (does not have to be a Viessman dealer)... then after that depending on his findings, some engineering.
So far it sounds like a range of engineering and design issues.
I am a retired mechanical engineer, and HVAC contractor for 51 years, I can help you with all of that... Depending on what you have, and what we can discover I will be able to answer your question, or if a lot of redesign is required I will submit an 'additional services offer'
Hello again, if you can give me the names of the nearest town and nearest city that will save a lot of time and guess work... there are so many rivers in the area that it will be easy to find a good outfit, about 20 miles away, but 50 miles from the nearest bridge. Ruling them out as anyone I would recommend.
I need to locate someone well qualified, and within reasonable driving distance for you.
This is the oldest and most well rounded mechanical heating contractor in the area... they are not rated, neither is anyone else in the area.
These will have the applications engineering capability to look for errors in the design and installation. How well they do remains to be seen.
Call them on the phone, tell them exactly what you have, and ask if the can send their best hydronic heat systems man out to look over the situation and issue a report on what they think of it.
That will be step one.. it will serve as an evaluation of Sigma. and my set of eyes and ears on the job.
Lets see what they say. We can go from there accordingly.
That will work.
Ask the man to make a rough diagram of the job on a sheet of paper with notes on what he thinks the problems might be.. tell him it is for your remote consultant. Then take a clear, close up, well focused photo of it and attach it here using the paper clip icon on the right end of the dialog box tool bar.
That will be a very good start on sorting out what your options are.
We can go from there.
