    outside oil fired boiler ?

    If I build an enclosure {insulated} can I use my hb smith oil boiler outside?    space is very limited inside.    Thanks for your advice    Garry

    Why not?

    Be sure you provide proper venting and air for combustion and do everything according to the manual.

    main concerns

    no domestic water to it. It should be run with antifreeze. Your hot water source should be in the house. Also this shed needs to be built to code. Non combustible floor, firecode sheetrock, low water cut off, all thermal fireomatics for oil and electricity, air intake, ventilation, etc. How are you going to vent this boiler? They are not direct vent, so it will need a chimney or powervent to get a negative draft overfire. Just a few thoughts
