    Which ones? Your question seems to want to lead to a bigger discussion. Let’s jump to that question.

    It's a gas fired steam boiler. Maximum and minimum inlet gas pressures are shown. Boiler manifold pressure (pressure at the burner is shown.

    The boiler will burn 231,000 btus of natural gas.

    The boiler will heat 591 square feet of installed radiation.

    It's powered by 120 volts

    It has an automatic vent damper

    Just for clarification - the 591 square feet of installed radiation mentioned above refers to the capacity of the radiators, it has nothing to do with the floor area of the home.
