I finally got my new boiler installed, the Energy Kinetics System 2000.   To date I have not noticed any new RFI to my HF spectrum,  just the usual crap from the neighborhood.

I have run the system through many different on/off cycles while I monitor several different HF frequencies and have not noticed anything. So for now I will give it a passing grade in the RFI category.

Hrm what would be in there to cause RFI other than the ignition circuit?

possible sources of RFI, which you aren't seeing thank goodness, would be a solid-state controller, tired relay contacts to pumps or whatever, fancy gollywog newfangled remote reading gas meter, digital thermostat, etc.

probably nothing that a Corcom filter on the AC to the boiler control and a bunch of ferrites and/or .01 X-rated safety capacitors wouldn't fix.  on the 24 volt lines to controls, whatever disc ceramics in the .001-.01 range you have lying around would do it, 50 volts or up
