I'm looking to install an IBC boiler. I've gotten quotes for both the combi DC and HC with indirect. I'm trying to figure if I really need the HC with indirect. I have a 2 story, approximately 2,000 sqft with 2.5 baths. I have 2 zone heating (up/down) with baseboard heating. There are 2 adults and 3 kids under the age of 7 now.

Can I use the DC model with 2 heating zones? Can I add a 3rd zone down the road if I find that I need the indirect tank?

Thanks for any input.

    Get the indirect.
    Long term you will be much better off.
