    Never have actually seen one, but did so.e research and you have to provide boiler return temp protection. So you can't directly pipe a radiant slab etc.

    Saw a demo about 7 years ago. They were manufactured by an Irish company and owned by QHT now.
    IMO, a condensing oil boiler is not worth the trouble for a 2% efficiency gain.
    And that is not a typical Riello burner used in the states. If you choose it, make sure your install and service company are familiar with it.
