Selecting Boiler Type/Brand--please help!
I am new to this site and really need some info on how to select best boiler.
Coming this spring, I will be converting from oil to propane. Currently have a peerless oil fired hot water boiler with indirect DHW 40 gallon tank. This boiler was installed in 1996 and hot water tank is about 12 yrs old.
My home is in eastern PA and primarily made of stone/stucco/. Some parts of the house were built in 1850s so insulation is not there. Roughly 3700 sq. ft. with 3 floors running hot water to cast iron radiators.
I want to go with a high efficiency unit if that really is going to make a difference. I'm starting to get some quotes, but the recommendations have been all over the place and I'm just getting more and more confused.
Some suggestions were Lochnivar, Weil McClain, Navien. I'm also kicking around a combi unit as an option but not sure if that is ideal for my home.
Any help or advice is appreciated. I have until spring so I'm trying to do as much homework as possible.
