This job was one where I was just running audits for one of the states WAP agencies, so normally I'm just writing reports and work orders. This was basiclly a "911" call to the agency and it was repaired immediately while my guys went on to the next audit. I was going through some pictures today where I proctor in NYC and found all the ones from this house. I'll try to put them up later if I get the chance.

That would be some job to clean that boiler and flue.  Was there even a nozzle on the burner? LOL

George, it was an oil fired boiler that was only maybe 3 years old. Look at the Efficiency numbers. Did you see the photos of the exterior of the house? The owner "didn't realize there was a problem"...all the black soot above the unit on the ceiling didn't give anything away...nor the 4' circle it burned into the ground outside...

I've never seen numbers like that on CO!
