Age of Boiler: Weil Mclain

BrianW Member Posts: 1
Hello, our daughter is looking at an older home in St Paul that has a

Weil McLain E-5-B Series 1 Boiler in the basement for heat. Curious how

old it is. The system is gravity feed. The pipes look to be in good

condition. Flue Gas readings after 20 minute warm up were as follows CO:

36ppm, CO2: 6.9%, O2: 8.6%, FT: 561.3F, Ex/A: 60.7%, Eff 77.2%.

Also, the house is a one and a half story, and there are no radiators in

the upper level. There is a small electric baseboard unit in one room

upstairs. The staircase isn't very large, and the insulation in this

1912 home is substandard. I'm wondering what it would take to heat the

upper level. Can a fin tube circuit be added to the gravity feed system

for this purpose, or are we limited to supplemental electric heat for

the upper level?

Thanks, Brian
