    After you make that expensive repair and you still have the same problem, What will you check next?

    That is way more than slightly. If I was guessing I'd say it's 3-4 times the size required for that house.

    Maybe you could let it freeze and see if the insurance company can get you a new boiler. The correct size boiler.
