Condensing boiler capable of burning lease gas
I have been researching installation of a Condensing Boiler to supply hydronic heat and indirect DHW and started to research boilers. Several boilers were recommended to me in my previous post and I contacted my HVAC contractor and told him what I wanted to install (HTP UFT-080w) and he immediately said he had concerns. He stated that he was not sure if modulating boilers are capable of burning lease gas due to lease gas’ fluctuations in BTH and how the computer and gas valve operate.
I contacted HTP and discussed the situation and the HVAC contractors concerns; and they stated that they have never tested their systems on lease gas and could not recommend any of their boilers for lease gas usage. From their responses I am not sure if it is a problem with it operating or their hesitance because they haven’t tested it and don’t want to recommend it due to liability.
Has anyone tried operated a modulating boiler on lease gas?
Are there any concerns or issues?
Thanks again for any comments or recommendations
