Buderus- Chimney Condensation problems
Hello everyone I have been having an ongoing chimney condensation problem for the past year or so. I live on the south shore of long island. In January of 2010, I had a buderus g124 boiler installed and buderus logano hot water tank. Approx 85% efficiency. The following winter I noticed condensation dripping out of the chimney cleanout. I then had a 6" ss chimney liner installed by a reputable chimney company and was told that it will correct the problem. Earlier this winter i noticed the condensation was coming out of the cleanout again. I called my plumber, chimney guy, and buderus tech. They came to my house and inspected the boiler and it found to have correct btus, temps, etc. Buderus Tech and Plumber recommended that the chimney liner had to be insulated and the top portion of the clay had to be trimmed as it was too long and was creating an ice cube effect sitting on the top of the chimney.So, I then followed their advice and had chimneyliner insulated and top portion of clay trimmed by chimney co. Guess what? I still have condensation coming out of the cleanout. I am fed up, have spent a ton of money, and don't trust any of the contractors i have used. any advice to correct the problem would be greatly appreciated.
FYI: Chimney height is 22', it is definitely condensation (not a leak) as we have had very little precip this winter. Sometimes I see white steam coming from chimney cap when boiler is running.
