Hi guys, Been reading this forum for months gleaning insights on as many gasification boilers as I can. Trying to wade through the avalanche of info, to determine which would be my best choice. I have a newer (2008) 1800 sf ranch, fully finished walkout basement. Heat loss calc from Smokeless heat says approx 50kBTU loss (if I did it correctly). Forced air for main floor, and in floor radiant in basement. My plan is to have boiler and 1000 gallons of storage in an outbuilding, and use heat exhanger for furnace plenum, a plate exchanger for the infloor, (utilizing a "Hydroshark" modulating electric micro boiler now), and a sidearm for my DHW. after talking to Reps for 5 of the boilers I'm looking at, I figure any of the smaller boilers will work. In fact most of the reps said their smallest boiler would do the job, (only the rep for the EKO suggested going larger, ie 60, and let it idle if need be). I was leaning towards a Vedolux, however while looking at the specs I noticed quite a disparity in the weights from the Vedolux's and everything else. The Vedo 30/37 are 639/650 lbs and the next lightest boiler in the group is the Empyre Elite 100 at 945 lbs, everything else is over 1000 lbs. Wondering about longevity if the materials are that much lighter, will it last? Opinions? Ooops accdentally posted in "Wood shed" hopefully a moderator will change to "Boiler Room"
