Residential Customer Trying To Decide Between Cast Iron vs Copper Fin
Hi there. My homes boiler broke on Friday night and we've gone the last 3 days without any hot water. My wife is starting to look at me funny.
I've gotten a couple quotes which seem reasonable, but they are offering two very different systems. I was hoping you could help give me your thoughts between the two? Here's the background on our house: we have 184 feet of baseboards that are in 3 zones. We also have a 2 bathrooms, a dishwasher, and we need to make baths for our kids. We are also at 7,000 feet altitude.
COPPER FIN VENDOR:
- Furnish & Install (1) JVS 125k btu
LAARS mini therm copper fin tube
CAST IRON BOILER:
Furnish & Install 1 Force Cast Iron Boiker 165k btu
They both make cases why I should use one or the other and I can't tell which one is better for my situation. Would you suggest cast iron or the copper fin?
