The boilers get checked every year and get a brush but there isnt enough to vacume. It's all in the adjustment. I have some Peerless WB boilers with Carlin Burners that the smoke pipe could be broken down and re used on another job. Beckett is another story they tend to not run as clean.
I think I'm going to run some firing rate tests on my Burnham V15 boiler and see if downfiring is saving or not. Should be interesting. I figure I'll start the boiler at say 130F and run it up to 200F with a full 1.35 gph and then with 1.00 gph rate and see which one is the best.
