    The smallest is actually 82000 anyways, so it wasn't that much of a jump, and the 82000 wasn't available locally. I would have had to wait.

    The price difference between the smallest which is 82,000($2500) and the one I got 100,000($2571) was very small, and the small one wasn't available as I said.
    Believe me I listened to what everyone said. I wouldn't have even have gotten on here otherwise. Its where I get good information.
    My house just doesn't belong in the time period we are in. I run into the same problem with getting small TV's !

    Are you talking output ratings? You have the one with 103,000 output?

    The smallest one made has 75k input with 62k output. And even that would have been too big for your house.

    With 4K there's no reason you can't sit 5 feel from a 50" TV.

    But that's another discussion.

    The price of the boiler is completely irrelevant.

    You bought the second biggest boiler when everyone including a highly respected pro told you even the smallest was too much.

    I think it was the next one up 100,000 BTU
    Good luck. 

    A complete wast of time and money!
