4-11-23 today we had a client in Chelmsford MA that had there 15+ year old Buderus GB-142 cast aluminum boiler rot out and fail. The manifolds with the circulators were still in good shape so to save some money the client opted to not replace them. We removed the old boiler and mounted the new Lochinvar WHB155 natural gas 95% efficient condensing boiler. Re-piped the primary secondary manifold to accommodate the new boiler we included a new Spiro vent micro bubble – dirt rust magnet removal unit. Included new vent piping with code required high temp Ipex grey exhaust piping.

Introduction: Welcome to our blog! Today, we’re excited to share a recent project we worked on in Chelmsford, MA, where we helped a client upgrade their outdated heating system. The client had a 15+ year old Buderus GB-142 cast aluminum boiler that had unfortunately rotted out and failed. However, instead of replacing the entire system, we were able to find a cost-effective solution by reusing certain components and installing a new, highly efficient boiler. Read on to learn more about the project and how we transformed the heating system in this Chelmsford home.
Project Overview: Our client in Chelmsford, MA, had an aging Buderus GB-142 cast aluminum boiler that had reached the end of its lifespan. The manifolds with the circulators were still in good condition, so we proposed a solution that would save our client money by reusing these components. We removed the old boiler and installed a new Lochinvar WHB155 natural gas condensing boiler, known for its high efficiency rating of 95%. To optimize the system’s performance, we re-piped the primary secondary manifold to accommodate the new boiler and included a Spiro vent micro bubble-dirt rust magnet removal unit for improved water quality. Additionally, we installed new vent piping with code-required high-temperature Ipex grey exhaust piping.
Benefits of the Upgrade: By upgrading their heating system, our client in Chelmsford, MA, can enjoy several benefits. The installation of the Lochinvar WHB155 condensing boiler ensures high energy efficiency, resulting in potential cost savings on their energy bills. The primary secondary manifold optimization enhances the system’s performance and reliability. The inclusion of the Spiro vent micro bubble-dirt rust magnet removal unit helps maintain water quality, reducing the risk of system clogs and damage. Furthermore, the new vent piping ensures compliance with safety codes while effectively exhausting combustion gases.
