I am looking to replace a boiler (baseboard heat), 3300 sq ft house above ground. Small amount of finished space in the basement. Indirect 40 gallon water.

Estimates on heat loss are 100,000 +/- for above grade. (190 linear ft of baseboard, 170 excl basement)

Most firms are pitching high efficiency boilers; Bedaras, Burnham, System 2000 and others. I have been considering sing pass cast iron boilers based on pricing (Peerless, McClain, Smith, etc).

Does anyone have a good sense of payback periods for the high efficiency boilers, as efficiency figures are not very useful in determining comparative oil consumption.
