Full Renovation - Installing new oil fired boiler and indirect water heater
Hi All I'm new here,
So here is my deal,
We completely gutted a home and are renovating everything. It will be getting all new Anderson 400 series windows, all new spray foam insulation, will have 2 wood stoves, and we will be using flat panel wall radiators, the home is roughly 2500 sq ft.
I am doing my darnedest to keep from oversizing the boiler too much, yet every company I speak to wants me to put 100-120k btu worth of boiler into the house which I feel is excessive.
I don't intend on putting more than 45k worth of radiators into the house, I see no need for it. I told the most recent heating company that I would like to install the smallest of the Burnham MPO IQ series oil boilers, but they still came back saying that I need at least 100k of BTU. With the 45k worth of radiators and the indirect water heater (stainless, likely 40-50 gal, I think they suggested Super Stor), do i really need more than the MPO IQ 84? Or am I screwing myself with too little radiation? I appreciate any advice on this matter.
