: : Mine is not a cast iron oil boiler. It is a typical single pass boiler. I found out that the 86% is just the burner rating, and not the actual furnace.
: ++ The burner efficiency is determined by knowing the input and the outlet temperature. The AFUE efficiency won't be much lower. I am sure Benjamin wouldn't be in business if it had an oil boiler that threw away 40 to 60% of its oil burner efficiency.
: "Because of this innovative design, the OB1000 has gained Energy Star ratings that place it near the top of the pack. With a Riello burner running on a Balanced Flue system it is rated with an 87.8% efficiency!"
Thanks for your help. That is my exact furnace and burner. I think I will stick with what I have.
