condensing pipe


I will soon replace my hot water boiler for my HW baseboard system. The boiler is located in attached about 15' from outside wall for a horizontal vent to exterior. Is that too far? Any recommendations for boiler manufacturer? Thanks..

The manual for the boiler will specify the maximum length of intake / exhaust pipes.

If you are replacing with a high efficency 90%+ you are well within most boilers abilitys. Keep in mind you do not get full efficiency out of the boiler in a hot water baseboard system due to the high required water temps for baseboard.

As John said, 15' is well within most, if not all high efficiency boilers flue requirements.

High efficiency boilers require that they have proper water flow through them. Or they will use more fuel then a regular boiler will.

I prefer the Weil McLain Ultra.
