: The 36C53 series is the newer valve with redundant safety valves, which your old one didn't have, so is better. It does have the capacity for yours and would be slow-opening, which offers some quiet. You've added the energy-saving devices that would be worthwhile as far as the boiler. A plan to completely improve the insulation to the house is a productive route to money savings.
Thanks for the go - ahead. My house was built in 1890 without any insulation and has 5,000 sq ft of living space - ( 1st floor 2500 and 2nd floor 2500). I've had the attic insulated and the northside wall, and will be having the other sides done this spring as you suggested. I appreciate all your tips here in this message board and have had a great time learning more about boilers in general. The one I have is working wonderfully and just needs some tender loving care once in awhile, but basically could be called "old faithful"! It really does a great job and we love the old radiators and their "comfortable" heat.
thanks again - - Drew
