Steam Boiler Comparison help
We have a 1930 home with the original boiler (coal, converted to gas some time between 1939 and 1960), and it died a noble death over the winter. Everyone we've spoken with has said that we'd be better off throwing dollar bills into the pilot to keep it alight, so we are in the process of sourcing a replacement.
We have two quotes: one from someone who measured the radiators, and one from someone who measured the rooms. It's my understanding that measuring the radiators allows for more precision in sizing the appropriate boiler. That being said, the two recommended boilers are a Burnham PIN4SNI-ME2 (65,000 BTU) and a Bryant BSAAM000150 CI.
I was unable to find any information on the Bryant, and in all honesty, I don't fully understand what I'm able to find about the Burnham model.
So, that being said, can anyone offer me some insight as to whether or not these are comparable systems or if one is a better choice than the other?
The Burnham recommendation came from the person who measured the rooms, and the Bryant came from the person who measured the radiators.
Thank you so much for any help you can offer.
