Q. I have a customer who
complains of having soot particles on the floor around the boiler and other
places in the basement. The fire is clean. What is the reason for this?
that you have adequate chimney draft so that there is not a back-pressure in
the smoke pipe when the burner starts. This type of complaint occurs with a
long smoke pipe between the boiler and the chimney. If the smoke pipe does
not have enough pitch, there may be a back-pressure at the boiler connection
even with sufficient chimney draft.
Check for an
obstruction at the point where the smoke pipe enters the chimney.
all leaks in the boiler setting where soot might come out on the start.
