In Reply to: estimate a boiler size (Questions for HeatPro) posted by marc on September 09, 2004 at 10:21:52:
: a salepearson came to my place and he suggested I replace my old furnace by a 300 000 BTU laars unit which to me seems kind of big for my 3 stories + basement 1250 sqfeet/floor 1920's build appartement complex. Do you agree ?
***How can I possibly, in any manner, agree? You can do a heat estimate for free at:
AFTER you have an accurate heat estimate, then you can agree or not agree. Guessing is NOT knowing.
: The problem I got for size estimationis is that i can't find the BTUs that my actual boiler puts out, the sticker seem to have been ripped off... I'll check the brand of the unit tonight and try and start from there.
***Don't bother. It might have been too large to begin with.
: Finally the saleperson is offering a price of 6658$ for purchase and installation of the Laars Raypack 305. This include putting a sleeve in the brick chimeny of the building for smoke evacuation is this necessary ?
*** Again, unless you know how large the heat estimate is, you have no idea to start with. Why price something that is an unknown? Your chimney might of might not need a sleeve, depending upon what you install. Direct-vent boilers don't need the chimney at all. A lower efficiency boiler might or might need a chimney liner. Start with a known estimate and a boiler that matches what you like and work fromn there.
