I am seeing BTU input and output which am I basing my decision upon if I am in need of a 105000 BTU unit?Post created: 2014-12-12 Type of Equipment: Boiler Views: 180

I have to replace my 2001 CSG series New Yorker ( steam/gas). My old one has a BTU rating of 140000 BTU.
I have done some home upgrades; my home is a wide line cape cod; converted to a mother-daughter with approx. 2000 sq ft of space.
This is chimney vented with radiators on the 1st floor and baseboard heating on the 2nd ( 2 separated zones/thermostats).
I need help selecting the most appropriate replacement steam heat boiler system.
I have been informed and have done calculations on line and my old boiler @ 140000 BTU's was deemed excessive.

To determine the correct unit for 105000 BTU unit you need to find one with an output at least that large. The output is calculated by the input BTU times the efficiency of the unit.
