    Do you have natural gas available?
    You may have only 2 simple problems that might not justify a complete changeout. Those 2 items don't come with a new boiler and are simply accessories to be added.

    Could be like buying a new car because 2 tires are bad.

    Some pictures of the blue monster would tell us a lot.

    Hi Darla
    If you can post pics of boiler, near and far, that would help.
    What is supplying your domestic hot water?
    Even the smallest boiler might be oversized, but a 3 section WBV Peerless with a Riello burner offers multiple firing rates.
    A Buderus G115/3 with a Riello, indirect water heater, Buderus 2107 Logamatic boiler control with outdoor reset would be my choice, but that's just me. You know what they say about opinions so get at least 3 estimates, and they won't be apples to apples, so weight your options.
    Then if you want to convert to gas, that's a whole other scene.
