steam like output from the exhaust pipe


We switched from oil to gas last year. our new gas boiler is a high efficiency (95%) condensing Alpine boilder from Burnham. When it is operation, the exhaust pipe release lots of steam like "gas". you may think somebody is release steam there if you don't that is the outlet of the boiler. anybody can tell me is it normal or not? thanks,

95% extracts humidity from the combustion air and sends it out the exhaust as water vapor I.E. "steam" in cold weather.
