Took this picture while outside grilling when the furnace kicked on for hot water to the dishwasher. The smoke started darker than shown and faded until relatively clear. Is this normal? Or is something needing adjustment (nozzle, etc.)?
Backstory: I had the Fire Department show up about 2 months ago on a call from a neighbor because black smoke was pouring out of the chimney. Turned out the boiler was 100% clogged with soot. So I swept the chimney, breeching, and entire boiler. Replaced the chamber kit, oil filter at tank, and spray nozzle on gun. Took me forever and made quite a mess, but it's my greatest DIY accomplishment to date. So now that I saw that smoke, could there be an adjustment issue with the nozzle? Or am I just being naive?
Current Rig: Weil-Mclein 66-68 boiler with 1.0 80deg hollow nozzle for a 1,000sq.ft. home in central Connecticut. Wall R-value is approx. R-15 and attic has R-40+
Life's too short...so enjoy it!
