State Proline XE Combi Boiler - Small Workhorse
The first week of December I removed a clunky cast-iron boiler at my home and replaced it with a sleek and compact State Proline XE Combi boiler. Read the cover story on this in Tim's December 7, 2018 Newsletter.
The difference is simply amazing.

How Does the Size Compare to the Old Cast Iron Boiler?
I would say the new State Proline XE Combi Boiler is less than half the size of the old Peerless cast-iron boiler.
This is my old boiler after we took it outdoors. It was about 28 inches wide, 32 inches high and about 34 inches deep. I can't believe I didn't take a great photo of it still in place! Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
Is the New Combi a Modulating Boiler?
Yes, my new boiler only creates as much flame is as needed to heat the demand. My old boiler was either OFF or running at FULL BLAST. A modulating boiler uses much less fuel.
How Efficient is the State Proline XE Combi boiler?
It's got a 95% AFUE rating. That's about as high as you can get.
Here's the State Proline XE Combi boiler with my domestic hot water manifold to the right. Each one of those PEX lines feeds hot water to a faucet in the house. The combi boiler can make hot water as long as there's propane in the outdoor tank. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
These are the vent and incoming air lines. The gray pipe is schedule 80 and is the outgoing vent. The white pipe is incoming fresh combustion air. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
