    I was recently at a neighbour's house when the central heating man came for his annual visit to check the Gas Boiler. Being of a curious nature I accompanied him to the boiler room.
    After the usual clean up he got out a digital gas analyser , put the sensor up the flue , and started to adjust the gas pressure/flow until he was happy with the results.
    They were
    O : 12%
    CO: 75 ppm
    Temp: 228 C (442 F)
    The gentleman said that you no longer looked at the flame : that was not good enough.
    You need digital equipment to tell you if all is well.

    Now on this forum you read < look at the flame> very frequently.
    Do you think in a few years time ,we also, will all be putting sensors up our chimneys ?

    Wood fires are different, the best (and always will be imo) is to look at the fire how it is burning.
