    I need a very small boiler

    I have an addition with a manual J heat loss of 30,000 BTUH at design -20*F. My customer wants radaint in the slab, but would forgo that for the high end A/C, read high velosity. She would go CI to get the A/C.

    Any ideas or equipment recomendations?

    The G/C says price is all that matters. We do not do that "price" work so I just may not "bid" the job.

    I have been "unbusy" before.

    Not a problem

    I fired the customer.

    I still would be interested in small boilers.

    I have family in baden-baden, I was there in 1967.

    Thanks, I fired the General contactor.

    Stephanie is emailing the customer of our action.

    I still need a small BTUH boiler option, as I am german and never give up. Grandpa Riemer drove U-Boats for the Kaiser.

    Burnham has a nice small cast boiler, I think it is input of 36K. A lot of mans. have 50-60K for their starting boiler size in cast/steel.

    Primus makes some very small LPG boilers, down to 8,000 BTu if I remember correctly.

    thanks Ron

    If they make LPG, they should make natural.
