im currently getting down to the manifold and such on my baseboard setup. when i did my heat load calc. (using slant fin) I USED 140DEG WATER and -20F outside with a temp of 72F inside. i came up with 65K on the heat load. i made my decision on a weil mclain ultra series 3. but after reading the free manual's and such, i would like some guidlines on which to follow.

also, will it be OK to use cast radiators (all on same loop seperate from the baseboard)  in the cellar with one of these boilers?

besides using oxygen barrier pex tubing. is there anything else that needs special attention or different than a standard boiler setup?

this will also be a closed pressurized setup.

    The Ultra Series 3 is a gas boiler!
