Replacing Oil Burner

RDario33 Member Posts: 1
I have a 5 bedroom Cape style house on long island. My home was built in 1969. I have 140 ft of baseboard running through out the house. I want to replace my old burner. I need enough burner to heat the house which has two zones. I have two bathrooms and It needs to heat my water for showers, laundry etc...What size Weil-Mclain do I need? How many BTU's etc...?

    You need a heat loss calculation

    The proper way to do this is a heat loss calculation. It may be moot as if you are set on a Weil-McLain oil boiler,the smallest is too large,making the choice easy. I would recommend a triple pass boiler with an indirect and reset control
