1920's american standard converted coal fired. Should I upgrade?
I have a 1920's rental building of 10,000 sq feet of 7 apartments and 2 store fronts in Milwaukee with the original steam boiler that has been chugging along more or less faithfully for 80 years. I've had the building 5 years.
It was originally coal fired, then converted to oil and now gas with a 950,000 btu burner. The flue pipe going the chimney is about a foot across and gets pretty hot when she cranks up. I imagine $$$ flying out. Anybody have any idea what percentage efficiency I am at now and what I can get to with a new boiler, keeping cost to a minimum. I've gotten telephone, ballpark cost estimates of $15K to upgrade not necessarily including asbestos removal. Thanks Todd H.
