I have a three family and have hired someone to replace my inefficient gas boiler with 3 condensing boilers - one to go onto each gas line. The tenants resist paying for own heat (their old and been in house for 30 plus years). That is fine with me, I am assuming ownership of gas lines. Within the next 5 years, I expect that these apts will be vacant and wish to rent to tenants and have tenants pay for their own heating expenses. My plumber tells me that maybe I should put in only one boiler, but I want to do the job right the first time, and not have to redo it in five years time. I am really adamant upon having each tenant in the future pay own heat, so I don't have to deal with complaints or issues of windows left open. Is there alot of wasteage for using three 80,000BTU boilers as opposed to using 1 200,000BTU boiler. The boiler types are Lochinvar Knight KBN80 high efficiency condensing boilers. The extra installation cost is not an issue, as I will pay this sooner or later. My only question is about the wasteage of gas using one 200K boiler vs three 80K BTU boilers. Thank you.
