need new gas fired steam boiler for house
I am seeking a new steam boiler for my house and a heating contractor located near Springfield MA. The oil fired boiler I have now, which came with the house is a Weil McLain 78 Boiler, model 478. Apparently the unit is way oversized for the house. 400,000 Btu/hr. Anyway, I am seeking advice as to a qualified contractor and a gas fired steam boiler to replace what I have now.
I found online a Burnham Independence IN6 Gas Fired Steam Boiler, NG, Electronic Ignition, M&M Probe, With Damper, Up to 2,000 Ft Altitude, Packaged - 175,000 BTU AFUE 83%, Traditional Steam Boiler, Easy to Install, Great Lifespan, Cast Iron Heat Exchanger ($3300)
The house is 3600 sq. ft. 1922 model with the third floor mostly finished. I do not really want to remove all of the radiators so I thought maybe just switch to a gas fired steam boiler would be more efficient. As it is I am going thru alot of oil (maybe 15 gals/day).
Any advice will be appreciated.
