Hi,

I am in the process of buying a new home and just found out it has an apollo heating system. I was just wondering how good and efficient these systems are or aren't.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks

Andy

I really appreciate your input. We will inspect it further. We are in the Pacific NW region and it seems to be a popular heating unit. I was not familiar with it at all until yesterday.

Thanks again

Andy

This system is common in the NW. We have had our system for twelve years now. The system has problemsn like the pump going out every couple of years.The cost for due it yourself is a little over two hundred. Also the radiator likes to leak every so many years you will need to replace it. That can cost a few hundred. But the biggest thing is that there is water running through this thing all the time. When it springs a leak it has a pan to drain into if it flowsn down to it.Many times when it springs a leak it sprays all over the wall or could flude your floor. I think this sytem has saved us money over all but the risk is high. They pitch it as a gas forced air system. Well your hot water tank is gas and the water is piped into blower unites that feed of the hot water. Mine is broke again and winter is comming not sure what we are going to do. Would like to put in a heat pump but who can afford it. If you like to house I would hire a apollo certified hvac company to come out and inspect the coils and pump even see if you can purchase a service contract on the heating system.

Recently replaced and Apollo System with a regular Lennox HVAC system. New system worked fine until I turned on the heat. I hear continuous rumbling between the floors of level 1, main floor, house has a cut finished basement. The main floor had an Apollo system, not the other floors, separate HVAC systems. The company that put in the news system stated, they did not remove the old system, as they did not understand the Apollo system, they by passed it. The rumbling noise, I suspect is water still forcing thru the circulator system, it is so loud at night and early in the morning when it is colder that I cannot sleep. The water heater is in a utility room under by bed and I cannot sleep. The rumbling runs 24/7- I shut the power off to the entire house for 1hour+ and it was still rumbling. Question - does the Apollo system have to be removed if replaced by a new system? Can it still "run" if by passed? CAn it get louder at night, and why? Tempurature changes? Thanks

Usually early in the morning my Apollo heating system in the
utility room next to my bed makes a ramdom loud clacking noise.
It has been checked by a plumber twice but after a week of
no noise is doing it again. Do I need to call an HVAC co.
or what do you recommend. The plumber found a water valve
on the toilet partially closed and said that was probably
the problem but I guess not.

Many thanks, Terry
