* The 78% SSE boilers have Electric Butterfly dampers within the first vent connector segment - These boilers are commonly fitted with vent dampers and Electric Butterfly dampers are used over other types due to their fast vent restriction, leading to cooler off-cycle flows, and resulting in conservative condensation estimates.
Historically, the NFGC venting tables were concerned with furnaces with respect to chimney and vent connector condensation.
This concern relates to vent temperatures from water heaters with recovery efficiencies of 78 percent and higher that could encounter condensation and the resulting corrosive environment in vent connectors during water heater cycling.
