Gas HW Boiler constantly cycling on cold days to keep temp.
I Live in an area that has been seeing 20F days consistently. My boiler usually doesn’t have too much problem keeping up until it starts to drop below 32.
The house is about 800 sq ft. and has r13 in the walls and r32 in ceiling vapor barrier is in place. I think the heat loss is due to the windows which are not very good and are pretty large.
I have a HW gas boiler rated at 112,000 BTU with a ¾” pex loop baseboard setup. The baseboards a cheap contractor grade crap and I am contemplating upgrading the baseboards to higher output based on some online calcs I have been using.
An odd thing I noticed when I cleaned my boiler in spring is the output gas pressure was turned down from the suggested pressure listed on the nameplate. I can only assume this occurred by the hands of the previous person who serviced it.
I am looking for the most cost effective solution to my problem and appreciate the help.
