So, I am thinking I know the answer to this question but I don't mind feeling a bit dumb.
JStar will know a bit about this since he looked at the job a while back. I have a customer who needs a new steam boiler, and I had Jstar come up and look at it. He came up with an EDR of 1064sqft, so his quote was a peerless 6 section, which seems to nail it. The current boiler is a bit undersized I believe its an older weil mclain (don't know the exact specs) and the oil provider showed up and quoted a new boiler, a peerless 3 section with a 1.20 which if I have this right is a EDR of 446sqft. Am I missing something? I am not a steam guy but it seems to me like that boiler will run and run and run.
I told the homeowner he better hold off til I have time to ask a few steam guys. Am I correct, will that baby just run for too long?
