At last weeks Coffee with Caleffi webinar, Jody did a fine job of showing and explaining the concept.
Using ASHRAE Hours of Occurrence data you can determine what % of the season you are at, below or above design condition. This example was for Boston.

With this data and a proper ODR installed and adjusted you may be able to allow the boiler to run in condensing mode for much of the season.

The 1 hour webinar is archived at this link, webinar #10

    HR, the webinar was nicely organized. A good watch even for those that are fluent in combustion and modcons. You never know where you can pick up a tip or two.

    Of the 1050 heating hours here, only 150 hours are at maximum boiler design temperature.
