I am installing an Axeman-Anderson 130 boiler in my garage and tieing it in with my oil boiler to keep the oil boiler as a back up. Since the attached garage has no chimney I plan to go with a stainless steel insulated chimney through an outside wall. My question is how high does the chimney have to be with an A&A 130. All input greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. I think the AA manual recommends at least 15 feet. I would prefer a masonry chimney over the stainless.

I second the masonry. materials cost will be less than stainless, and, often the costs to pay someone else to build will be on par with stainless - benefit being it will last more than a few seasons.
