Propane boiler questions.
Hello and thanks in advance for the help.
I have a propane furnace that is original to the home from 1991 its a heat maker plus. The tank will now leak when we lose power and intermittently when it cools down slightly. When I took the cover off and moved the insulation the cap has heavy rust on it and it appears whats holding it together is the rust. Instead of trying to hunt down a tank and it appears parts no longer exist, I have been looking at boilers on ebay. Based on some of the prices I have seen, I think I can save a ton of money doing a self install. The problem; I know a lot about a lot of things but propane boilers is not one of them and not sure what im looking for. Can I go tankless? how many BTU am I looking for?
I have a single zone direct vent boiler. The house is 1k square ft. Any help in the correct direction would be much appreciated.
