        Comments about Bobcat B-120A - 95,000 BTU Output Condensing Boiler (Nat Gas):

        I have this furnace/boiler in my home for almost a year now. I live in Northern Michigan and know all about the cold winters. I also have this unit providing my domestic hot water which keeps up with demand of 2 teenagers, my wife, and myself at any given time.I have some of the lowest gas bills I have even had. It is very quiet operation. My home is 3200 SQ Foot +/- and this unit heats my home with no problem. The price seems a little hefty at first but it pays itself off in no time with the savings on fuel. I would highly recommend to anyone.

          Can this boiler (Slant Fin 120) be used with forced hot air or is it best with radiant heat?

            A:

            Yup. Mine does. You need an "Indirect Hot-Water Heater." Mine is made by "Heat Flow" but any will do. You don't want to size the water heater too big in this type of application. My water heater is 40 gallons and supplies endless hot water. The indirect hot water heater is basically a tank with a coil of tubing inside it. Hot water is circulated through the coil and heats up the water. This is an extremely efficient set up. The Bobcat 120 loves this type of setup too. My house is about 3,000 sq.ft. My Bobcat 120 supplies my Air-handler for heating the entire house, my radiant flo, and my. I have the propane version and I love it. I built my entire house including the HVAC, plumbing and electrical so if you have any questions, shoot em over. Hope this helped.

            A:

            Yes you can. Look at pages 27-29 of installation manual to see how they
            suggest plumbing it. Here's the link to it.

            bcat_ba_40.pdf
            The hot water heater is like another zone to the boiler. When the
            temperature in the hot water tank drops below the set level the boiler
            circulates hot water thru it to heat the water in the tank. You would need
            to purchase the hot water tank and valves and stuff to get it working. I'm
            planning to do this in my house. I'm just waiting for the electric hot water
            heater I have now to die. Then instead of replacing it with another electric
            I would use the bobcat. Hope this helps.

            Yes. Purchase the DHWG (Domestic Hot Water Generator)from SlantFin and
            install as directed.

            A:

            Yes this can also provide domestic hot water but you will need to add either
            a heat exchanger or a hot water storage tank. This product out of the box
            is not equipped with a secondary coil or heat exchanger for domestic hot
            water. I am currently using this boiler to heat 4 hydronic hot water zones,
            3 radiant heat zones and an indirect water tank to supplement my Bosch hot
            water on demand unit.

            Yes, sells a "Combi-cat" domestic hot water heater made for the Bobcat boiler.  (Other heaters may work as well)  I believe when I ordered my Combi-cat I had to call PexSupply (product was not listed on the site), they gave me a product number and then ordered using that number on line..

            It does have setting for domestic hot water. I didn't use it as mines was used strictly for heating hot water base board.

            It can, but you would need to connect an indirect water heater to the boiler.

          • VERIFIED BUYER

            A:

            Yes, it can. However, the boiler needs to be connected to an insulated tank equipped with a heater core through which the heating water will flow to transfer the heat to the domestic hot water tank, in parallel to the hydronic heat for your house. If you only want domestic hot water however, I would go for the cheaper and probably more efficient option of just installing a standard boiler. The Installation Manual provides detailed information how several different installations can be done.
            The answer to the question can only effectively be provided if one knows exactly what the objectives of the consumer are.

          Q:

          The boiler pressure gradually, depending on heating demand, rises to near 30psi and leaks out the pressure relief valve. I (the homeowner) have purged the air from all zones to lower it back down to 12psi a couple times now but it slowly climbs back up. Remedy?

          • A:

            Do you have hard water??....is something restricting the flow of the water in the pipes. My old boiler had started making noise like that before we upgraded and it turned out that over the years hard water minerals were restricting flow in the unit. Another cause could be air in the lines and the system needs to be bled and purged.

            I have this exact same boiler. Works great. Makes the same noise when the boiler is ramping up. Its not air in the system that needs to be blead out. I think its the fan that gets rid of the exhaust. Dont think its anything to worry about..

            This depends on the temperature to which you set the boiler.

            Answered on 7/27/2011 by PexSupply Staff from NY
          • A:

            Acually the pressure will be determined on a few different things.
            Cold initial fill{city water pressure}, Plus head pressure{Height of the highest heat transfer unit},and water temperature. To calculate head pressure take your height x .433 to get gauge pressure plus city water pressure and thats pretty close to what your gauge should read. Water temp will increase that number slightly. Mine reads 14Psi. Hope this helps
