Smith Series 8 boiler - installed without draft control?
Hi - I just had a brand new oil boiler/burner installed (Smith Series 8 boiler) and the technician did not install a barometric draft control at the flue pipe. I have never seen a boiler without it. He explained that I do not need one because when he tested it he saw that I have enough draft (-0.02 to -0.04). My upstairs neighbor's boiler that sits right next to mine is the exact same model. It was installed last year with a draft control (by the same company). I compared the draft test results and they are identical, so this is making no sense to me. Is it really ok not to have a draft control on my flue pipe? And what about access to cleaning the flue pipe? Also, since the install I have a lot of banging going on in one of the main pipes. I pointed that out to the technician and he came back and repitched the affected radiator, but the banging is still going on. Is there possibly a connection to the missing draft control? Any advice?
