Before you decide on a boiler, you should have a load calculation done to determine how many BTU's you will need. Besides square footage, a load calculation takes into account the size and type of windows and doors in your home, type of roofing, flooring and siding, climate, and other factors.
The size of a boiler and furnace used to be determined largely by square footage, but a load calculation is much more accurate and by determining what size boiler is needed, it will also improve the unit's efficiency. If you would like to have a contractor perform a load calculation, we can help you find one, here.
