In fairness to all, we don't discuss pricing on the Wall. Thanks for your cooperation.
I am doing an oil to gas conversion in my 2,300 square foot home in Westchester County, New York. The home has steam heat. I received 5 quotes for the conversion. Two of the contractors did not measure the radiators when they visited my home. The other three took measurements of all radiators in every room. Of the three who measured, I received quotes for a Burnham IN6 (175,000 BTUs), a Burnham IN8 (245,000 BTUs), and a Bryant BS2 AAN 262 (262,000 BTUs). Of the two that did not measure the radiators, one recommended a Weil-McLain EF-55 (200,000 BTUs) and the other recommended a Weil-McLain PEG-50 (175,000 BTUs). I'm concerned about the wide disparity in sizing. I'm more interested in getting the right system than getting the cheapest system. I have no experience in this area. So, how do I, as a consumer, make sure the contractor is getting the size right?
