The top of the line Slant Fin boiler is a 95% AFUE modulating gas-fired hot water boiler that has built-in digital controls and a stainless steel heat exchanger to prevent the corrosive effects of the gas combustion process. This boiler can use PVC, CPVC, or stainless steel venting up to 100 feet and is considered low-temperature venting because the boiler utilizes a lot of the heat produced by the gas combustion process.
This is what makes condensing furnaces and boilers more efficient than other non-condensing furnaces and boilers. A condensing furnace or boiler has two heat exchangers. A primary heat exchanger where most of the useable heat is used for main heating and a secondary heat exchanger where any other usable heat is used for heating before the combustion gases are vented outside.

Installed Slant-Fin oil hot water boiler (myself, as a DIYer); easy , straightforward install, fired right up first time, continues to work great (2+ years now), better than my old Weil-Maclain. Quiet, clean-burning, well insulated with no heat loss to furnace room. Only minor complaint-the electronic control unit was installed upside down from factory- didn’t realize ’til after starting as indicators are LEDs; no big deal tho. I’d highly recommend this boiler. Slightly larger fuel nozzle than the W_M boiler, but seems to be more efficient.

I BUILT A TWO FAMILY HOUSE IN 1978 WITH TWO INDIDUAL BOILERS ONE 75000 BTU AND THE OTHER 125000 BTU WITH LARGE B&G PUMPS.THEY CONTINUE TO SERVE ME WELL,LAST YEAR I CHANGE THE PUMP IN ONE BOILER ONLY BECAUSE I HAD A NEW ONE.THE ONLY ISSUE I HAVE IS THE CHINEASE THERMOCOUPLE GO ON ONE BOILER EVERY YEAR,THE REASON IS YOU CANNOT GET AMERICAN THERMOCOUPLES. I WILL BE BUILDING A NEW RANCH SOON AND I WILL GO WITH SLANT FIN AGAIN.
