A boiler location question, and Thanksgiving greetings
I inspected a 100 yr old residence and am giving advice on replacing the very old "snowman" oil fired boiler.I am an engineer not an installer.
For some reason it was located near the center of the basement with a long, at least 10 ft long, smoke pipe. I assume that a more efficient atmospheric gas boiler will be questioinable with that long flue pipe. Would it be possible to extenend the two main supply steam lines for a better location near the chimney? It is probable that the extended main lines would need to be pitched down to drain back to the new boiler. Also, the ceilings are reasonably high so a dropped header should be possible for dryer steam. Is this a working plan?
