I'm cleaning up a used Expobar Office Control and am thinking I'd like to insulate the boiler. I like what I see here: #3 For those of you who've insulated a boiler on an HX machine of this size, have you noticed any downsides? I'm concerned about unforeseen consequences. Thank you.
We have an outdoor cafe attached to our bike shop. It's not insulated and so, as winter approaches, the night-time temperature is starting to dip below freezing inside the cafe! Could anyone give me advice regarding our Fracino Cherub machine as I understand it could potentially be damaged if the water in the machine freezes? It's not plumbed in so one option would be to bring the machine inside our main building overnight (where the temp is more likely to stay above freezing) but that would be a bit of a pain. Or would it be sufficient to insulate the machine with a jacket made from the stuff you use for cladding a boiler/hot water pipes? I can't be the only person with this scenario but am struggling to find much advice online! I think daytime usage is fine even if the ambient temperature is below zero because the machine is warmed up. It's the nights I'm worried about. Thanks in advance!
Evening all. Recently bought a Silvia and Rocky combo, so far so good. One thing I've read in my (exhaustive) research before buying was boiler and group head insulation. I tend to leave it on all day as I often work from home. I know you can buy the kit from PIDSilvia but it's pricey and was wondering if anyone else has done the mod themselves and has found a better value alternative. I've already ebay'd and googled but so far it's either not quite right, too expensive or they want to sell you enough to carpet your house ! Any pointers would be gratefully received Cheers
