With eight models in the series, the discontinued Burnham V8 boiler was an Energy Star qualified product made in the United States. This oil-fired boiler is designed to heat the home and domestic hot water and has AFUE ratings ranging from 83.2 to 86.3 percent.
The steam or water heat exchangers are made with a cast iron sectional design for durability. Because the boiler uses larger center sections than competing units, more heat is transferred, according to the manufacturer. The sections also are made with steel couplings intended to provide high resistance to deterioration. The burner is covered to decrease the noise production for homeowners. Three types of burners are available, including the Beckett burner as the standard option.
Installation versatility and ease with accessibility is made possible by the full-access double articulating door, quick-release canopy and side/top flue access. V8 series boilers have a working pressure of 50 psi, making them suitable options for tall buildings. Radiant heating and indirect hot water are available as add-ons.
