Recommend a propane boiler for fintube, please.

Yes, I figured on lower temp at the fintubes since it was layed out in a different era.

Any particular BRANDS of boiler for propane you can recommend?

    Parents house , here on Long Island only has propane for fuel choice. Nat Gas not hooked to the house; might be in the street tho.

    House is typical Cape style, 1000sq ft first floor. Maybe another 500 on 1/2 story above.

    Boiler is I *think* a Hydrotherm. Approx 40 years old, could be more but not much less. DHW is made via a propane water heater, 4 or 5 years old.

    Heat emitters are basic fintube baseboard, each room is basically covered on every exterior wall.

    I'll do a heatloss, already have the Slant Fin software.

    Mom wants a new higher efficient boiler.

    Any recommendations for propane w/fintube?

    With propane, a mod/con looks pretty good, particularly since it sounds like there is quite a bit of emitter.

    It depends on exactly what you are looking for. my favorites are:

    Vitodens 200 - Best available.

    Vitodens 100 - High quality and simple.

    Triangle Tube Prestige - Excellent value in a stainless steel mod/con.
