Midco Radiant burner....results of first heating season

My Burner Tech, Brad,  installed a Modulating Midco LNB1000 on an old Pacific Steel boiler. While the combustion numbers on high fire were almost the same as the existing modern conventional burner, the fuel usage was dramatically different.   Brad ran the numbers, correcting for degree days, and found over a 30% drop in fuel usage with the new burner.  I suspect about 1/2 this drop is due to the modulation, but the other half is probably due to the better heat transfer of the radiant design.  The installation was on a larger single zone, single pipe steam system.....no TRV's.

Looks like I'm going to start selling a lot of these
