In fairness to all, we don't discuss pricing on the Wall. Thanks for your cooperation.
I have an apt. house customer that we are converting from oil to gas. The boiler didn't "feel" right, so I checked the actual installed load. The boiler ( Smith 28-6) is actually over twice the installed radiation. I have 3 options:
a) install a new boiler, if the customer is willing to spend the money
b) install the burner sized for the oversized boiler and short cycle
c) install the proper sized burner (for the load) The boiler will make steam, but will the flue temps be too low?
I don't think removing sections from the boiler is cost effective.
The gas piping run changes from 2" to 3" because of the different loads.
Sharing any experience you might have had would be appreciated. Thank You
