Polly and John are happy! They just got their new Froling P4 32/38 started before winter officially kicked in. Their apartment received damage from Tropical Storm Irene and they lost everything in their basement including their source of heat. They had already planned on installing a Froling P4 pellet boiler at a later date, but because of the storm, it made it the right time to replace their old inefficient oil boiler. The installation is almost complete except for their permanent fuel storeroom and insulating the thermal storage tank. The Froling P4 will be their only boiler, so it is also controlling and heating the domestic hot water tank. They have also integrated a new energy-efficient Grundfos Alpha pump into their heating system.
Right outside their door, there is a lot of activity going on. The town of Bethel, VT received a lot of damage from the storm. The main bridge in town is being replaced and tons of gravel and stone are being brought in to repair damaged VT Route 107. Please check out the photos and quick video below.
