Re: Electric Tankless Water Heater
#1
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


Thanks for your repsonses and for the HVAC referral.

We were advised by a Plumber/hvac working on Long Island, who has trained with the Navien that the Navien would be great for our needs. He said that we would be able to vent out our chimney, using a pvc sleeve. We're a bit hesitant for a couple of reasons.

We have very limited space in our home and have hopes of switching from baseboards to a combo of low profile radiators and radiant heat. This would require two zones and possibly a tempering valve. the space where our heating/water appliances is small, so we'd like to choose carefully.
PSE&G gave us an estimate on a traditional Wells McClain with a hot water tank

During Sandy we did loose our heat, which is currently provided by gas via a Paloma Pac with electric heat pumb. When we lost the electric we lost our heat, but still had hot water, since we have a separate gas hot water heater. So, we do realize switching to the Navien would mean we would face loosing both heat and hot water.

Our Paloma Pac is actually pretty good: it's compact--hangs on the wall, but it is from 1981 and we have had no luck finding anyone willing to service it.

Navien tankless boiler - experiences?
#2
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


We are considering installing a Navien NCB-240 tankless combi-boiler in our 100+ year old row house which currently has a 30+ year old boiler and a 10-year-old water heater, in a very tight closet.

1. Does anyone have any experiences, positive or negative, with this brand or this model?

2. We currently have baseboard heating but are considering adding radiant to 2 of our 3 floors, perhaps at a later date. Navien touts this model's compatibility with both systems in their literature. Anyone have experience with either/both?

3. I'd love to hear any experiences with this brand's functionality as a water heater.

4. Also, I'm curious as to how this brand/model holds up in dealing with JC water.

5. Can anyone recommend an HVAC contractor that has extensive experience with this brand?

On Sundays in late spring/summer/early fall the farmers market in Riverview Park provides a great option for buying fresh organic & conventional (local) fruit & vegetables. If you like gardening, I believe there?s a new community garden at the South end of Ogden. I believe the Captain?s meeting is now being held on the third Wednesday of the month at school #7 (as posted in Heights? response, a few back). I live half a block from Palisade and find the 23 bus very convenient to NYC. Trolley Car Bar has been a great addition for food & nightlife (across from Supremo on Palisade) and now there?s Yoga in the Heights, held Mondays, Thursdays at 7:30 and Sundays at 11 AM at The Distillery Gallery.

"by jcgurl on 2012/2/8 9:56:26

There's a fine line... I am personally concerned about light pollution. I don't necessarily want your porch light shining in my eyes while I'm trying to sleep. My neighbors have a motion light that wakes me up at times, even with my blackout shade and curtains drawn.

Some municipalities have installed fixtures that light the street but minimize the amount of light that escapes up toward dwellings and the sky. I would love to see JC install these when they next upgrade fixtures."

I know a well lit city is a safer city, but light pollution is a real issue. It is a virtue of Jersey City to be able to look up at the night sky and see stars. I would love to see JC install lighting that is well thought out regarding preventing light pollution.

Re: HUGE GAS PIPELINE COMING - through Jersey City

One of the claims Spectra made when they presented at the Jersey City Council meeting was that a gas pipeline would be an unlikely target for sabotage / terrorism. Well a bomb just blew up a "major gas pipeline," from Egypt, cutting off gas supply to Israel and Jordan. This is very scary for Jersey City if the Spectra Pipeline is allowed to go through:

Plus there is a whole solar farm down by the 14B turnpike entrance, where all those mulch piles are fermenting. I know there are cost/benefit and vandalism concerns, etc., but "eyesore"?! Be real. We will get used to seeing them, they will blend into the landscape, just like the spaghetti wires and real filth we look at around here.


I agree. The reaction of people makes me disgusted to be a Jersey native. NIMBY S.O.B.s.

Re: Replacing Trees that were Removed
#10

The tree is never free:

If you get the property owner's signature you would pay $100.00.

If it is your property, you would pay $100.00.

I thought you might want to contact the property owner to inform them of this city program. They may be interested in taking advantage of the low cost ($100.) themselves.

In my opinion, the people who dug out their oil tank should be OBLIGED to replace the tree, but I don't know if there is a rule on the books (that's why it would be good to contact the Mayor's Action Bureau).

The Parks Dept.'s low cost tree program is limited to 100 trees -- so it's important to get the application in as soon as the Parks Dept. announces the 2011 program (the trees are planted in the Fall). Worth a call to find out details...worth the call just to speak to the woman I spoke to...She said it would be an eyesore (!) to plant a tree in front of an abandoned building.

My husband and I have a similar situation. We have a house next door which is basically abandoned until the market turns (the owner pays taxes). It has a large grassy cut in the sidewalk. We would like to have a tree planted there...so we contacted the City Department of Public Works Division of Parks and Forestry. We received an application for the 2010 Fall Tree Planting. The city supplies the tree and plants it. And there is a way to have one of these trees planted on someone else's property -- you would need their signature. Of course this would be a method for YOU to pay for the tree (about $100. through the city) and, I suppose, you would have to wait till 2011. You can also approach the owner with this option -- it is a significantly reduced rate for a tree.
I do suggest you call the Parks Dept. yourself: (201 547 4449. Be prepared to be received with skepticism by the female answering the phone. In response to my inquiry she said "why would you want a tree????" Frankly, I was appalled by her attitude -- she works for the Parks Dept!
You might also try reporting the issue to the Mayor's Action Bureau (201) 547-4900/5555 They have been somewhat responsive.
Anyhow, good luck!

Re: City considers privatizing clinic that costs city $425,000 annually

"'Every city department was charged with looking for ways to reduce their respective budgets," said city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill."

Did the city "department of perks" cut their budget?
Every time we hear about the city / mayor cutting a vital service (library budget, health clinic) they should be held accountable for ignoring "requests" to reduce their own rewards. They still get cars, health insurance, double dipping privilege...

I think a phone call to the city agency that oversees Taxi and Limo services would be appropriate. I believe it would be the Division of Commerce -- call city hall switch board (210) 547 5000. The investigator heading up an effort to improve cab service in Jersey City spoke at a Sgt. Anthony Park Association meeting last summer.

Re: Charles Epps Jr. calls today's "bad" young girls the community's "worst enemy

$200,000-plus is a very decent wage.

We, as a society, should not be encouraging the "Dick Cheney" model of governance, i.e. the corporate/government revolving door.

Education reform is a burgeoning field. There are many highly qualified candidates chomping at the bit to reform our system.

The issue in Jersey City is not: "the money that we're offering just can't buy anything better."

The issue here is that we have a misogynist Superintendent who runs his office like his personal fiefdom.

There were a couple of responses to Dr. Epps' defamation of the female gender - posted by young female students who are currently enrolled in the JC school system - on NJ.com:

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... says/2268/comments-7.html

For the sake of Jersey City's youth we need to reject Dr. Epps and his ilk. We need to complain to the state of New Jersey. I do hope this goes national. Jersey City does not exist in a vacuum.

Just now added The Cartel to my instant queue. In light of the upcoming BOE election, and the outrageous public statements that Dr. Epps made disparaging young women, it's time to reevaluate the Jersey City Public School Admin. We need to stop failing our students by providing them with a terrible education and then blaming and demeaning them publicly.

He earns over $200,000. He gave himself a raise in an environment where classroom staff will be laid-off and taxes are going to go up. And now he has publicly revealed how deeply unsuited he is to address the issues of poverty and neglect that plague the lives of the children to whom he is providing a FAILING SCHOOL SYSTEM! 37 of Jersey City schools are FAILURES, really?
He's not suited to clean the lunchroom floor (no offense to custodians). Our dollars can buy better quality than this boor.
I believe it is time to picket, rally and call for his immediate resignation. We must act, because the hierarchy in this city -- in county, will never act substantively.

Re: towing at shoprite

Your car may have been called in to EZ Towing by a "spotter." Keep in mind, using a spotter is one of the illegal tactics that these tow companies use. A spotter "works" for the tow company. He/she watches the parking lot and calls in which cars are "illegally parked." Your car can only be reported to EZ Towing by the owner of the property.

No doubt EZ towing released your car because they know they are currently being investigated. They know you were illegally towed for which they face a substantial fine from the state.
Thank you for reporting your experience. Good luck!

@LoKo498 thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to act. It is true that Animal Control wouldn't be able to get there in time to issue a ticket. But, they are now aware. The dog owner on your block who is not curbing, not leashing, is a creature of habit. I have a similar problem on my block. It is odd to have to watch a person -- but it's really the only realistic way to identify them for the powers that be. We are all part of the community and we, as residents, have an important role to play in improving the quality of life. We need to notify the City of areas in need, notify them on every level, until improvements are made.

JC should be looking for sustainability. We use so much energy fighting the nonsense at City Hall and beyond! We are missing a huge opportunity to create real energy by investing in long term solutions, including large scale solar projects, wind energy and initiating a waste to energy system which would generate electricity using garbage and pollution. Other cities around the world and in this country (BOSTON, for instance) are doing this and we just stay mired in the filth and wasted opportunity that a local government starved by corruption creates.

Thanks for the information, JimA.
I agree with tommyc_37. Newark Ave needs to be "done right." I'm really happy about the trees. I have hopes that lighting will also be included. I see Newark Ave as a great connector for pedestrians & bikes between downtown, Journal Square and the Heights. I use it all the time--but it can feel quite isolated.

Re: Fulop/McCann and On a Document That Disappeared, Then Reappeared
#26
Just can't stay away
Just can't stay away


I agree that the Independent is a tremendous asset to Jersey City, as is Steve Fulop.

It scares me to see how twisted the concept of "objective journalism" has become in the minds of some. Those who misunderstand the meaning are actually sabotaging our society. This huge disconnect in many of the public's mind between truth, opinion and lies is shameful.

The lack of reading comprehension demonstrated by those who assert that JCI was simply giving "both sides a chance to speak their mind" is astounding.
I suggest you read the article--analyze it line by line and you will find JCI did not assert that there was any validity to the police report that McCann used at the Council meeting. They wrote simply that the report was used to disrupt proceedings. I was there. In my opinion the report was used by McCann as a last ditch effort to get attention for his run in the Board Of Education election and to distract from his own culpability in running this city(into the ground) along with those other officials who are felons and or future felons.
He is a disgrace to any office he holds, including his position on the JCIA--where he is paid with tax payer dollars to remove evidence of his own crimes (illegal posting).

The council meeting was turned into a three ring circus. Smoke and mirrors...and JCI was reporting on this.

This trend to insist that lies and innuendo be given equal time to truth is disastrous.
I suppose our commercial 24 hour news channels and the cult of personality news are somewhat responsible for training people to misunderstand the difference.

They no longer allow plastic bags to be used for recycling (it hinders the process).

Here is a link to JCIA (Jersey City Incinerator Authority) website and a copy of their guideline (see below):

http://www.jciaonline.org/recsteps.php

TWO SMALL STEPS FOR YOU
TWO GIANT STEPS FOR JERSEY CITY

STEP 1:
Don't put your recyclables in plastic bags.

* Putting recyclables in plastic bags seriously hinders the recycling process.
* Put all recyclables in large plastic containers or any other large reusable containers, such as large garbage pails.

STEP 2:
Combine milk/juice cartons and drink boxes with plastics, not paper.

* Combine these items with plastics, glass, and cans -- not paper items. (See chart)

Simply separate all your recyclables into 2 categories:
CATEGORY 1:
All plastics, glass, cans in one container CATEGORY 2:
All paper items in one container (or bundle)
Plastics Includes:
? Milk Cartons
? Drink Boxes
? Plastic Milk Containers
? Food Containers
? Household Cleaner Containers
? Laundry Detergent Bottles
? Shampoo Bottles

Glass Includes:
? Soda Bottles
? Beer Bottles
? Food Jars
? Liquor Bottles

All Cans Except Paint Cans
(see Special Recyclable)
Paper Includes:
? Newspapers
? Magazines
? Junk Mail
? School Paper
? Office Paper
? Computer Paper
? Telephone Books
? All Cardboard Boxes & Corrugated Boxes
? Cereal Boxes
? Pasta Boxes
? Laundry Detergent Boxes
