Seeking advice on new Buderus oil heating system (Westchester NY)
Hi, I am in Westchester County NY, and am considering upgrade the oil heating system in the old house we recently bought (built in 1950s, 2500sqft). The house has two zones for the 1st and 2nd floor, there are two radiators in the basement, and the water heater is connected to the propane tank.
For the new heating system, I prefer Buderus G115 WS, and replace the current water heater with an oil fired indirect water heater. One plumber recommended Heat Flo 50 gallon. I guess this will make it at least 3 zone system (1 for water heater), but I am not sure if the radiators in the basement need to be in another separate zone.
Another trouble I have is, none of the plumbers I contacted has done a heat loss calculation for the estimation of the size of the boiler, and very few of them seem to be very familiar with Buderus G115 boiler. Does anyone know a good installer in this area?
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
