In response to Re: flue shut-off in boiler connection to chimney
: Where do I find a flue shut-off for a 9" flue? I may not be calling this device by the correct name but I know they exist. This is for an old oil-fired hot water boiler and I'm hoping to improve the units efficiency by automatically closing off the flue pipe after the unit shuts down.

: Thanks

Save your self the money and don't put it on. Honeywell makes one but my experience is they only last about 2 to 3 years before they stick and fail. This will wipe out all your savings with one service call. Spend your money better and install a Wayne Blue Angel Retention Head burner. This burner has a draft shut off built in and will save you much more money than the damper. I have use Blue Angel for about 600 conversions with much success and major fuel savings.
