I have an old HE-5 Weil-McLain Cast Iron Boiler for my

I have an old HE-5 Weil-McLain Cast Iron Boiler for my natural gas DHW and 3 zone baseboard heating system with a single Taco 007 speed circulator pump and 3 zone valves.I have been reviewing NG Boilers and thinking of replacing it with a Buderus GA 124/30 and looking to also replace system components (pumps, controls, etc) with proven durability, operational and energy efficiency and high performance ones to reduce energy costs and provide low maintenance and longevity. I have read variable speed pumps such as the Grundfos Alpha and Magna pumps and Taco ECM pumps significantly reduce electrical consumption. Can I use these variable speed pumps for the main circulator, heating zone pumps and DHW pump to the indirect water tank for my system? And what other components should I have installed such as a dirt and air removal items?

Guys I have a furnace not sending hot water to the baseboards.The valve is opening when the thermostat requests heat. However, the furnace does not seem to be heating the water. I do hear a lot of water coming in and out of the furnace.

A friend and I replaced my home water heater 14 months ago.

A friend and I replaced my home water heater 14 months ago. We used shark bite hoses to make the connections. we did not reinstall the shut off valve nor did we install an expansion tank. Everything has been fine during this time.This past week whenever we flush a toilet, run the shower, dishwasher etc. there is a sound created by what sounds like a pressure issue. i need to know what this is and how to correct it. Is it dangerous to keep using our system until it is repaired?
