they would cause flue gas condensation. Really, if a unit has stack temps that high it should be replaced.

    I used to see stuff like this in the 70's, they used to catch soot and produce no savings. Is there something to this if you have a high stack temp and a newer burner that will keep it clean?http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Heat-Reclaimer-Wood-Stove/dp/B0000AXEXE

    theres a lot of pin style boilers out there only a few years old with stacks over 500. You're not going to sell these people boilers. as long as it does not bring the temp below 350 why would this be a problem, its cheap enough.

    Unless you have a barometric damper, draft changes with many factors with fixed draft hoods. I would not trust the readings at one particular moment to reflect the constant temp / draft readings throughout the season. I would also contact the mfg of the boiler and see what they have to say about this devise on their boiler. My insurance would sure want me to...some boiler mfgs will not allow a barometric damper or ANY devise on their boiler's vent even if it can be proven to help.
