Combustion Testing

Tim, It seems that most manufacturers tell you to take combustion readings at full fire. Is there a reason for this? Lets say that you have a over sized mod con boiler and at max water temperature it is only firing at 50%. Wouldn't this be an appropriate level to take combustion readings? Thanks for any incite you can give me. Tom

    No you should still over

    ride and go to full high fire for proper adjustment and measurement. Some will have you do a hi fire and also a low fire test, do what ever the manufacturer ask for. This will insure lets say with a 5 to 1 turndown that all steps are properly set up.
