Hello Everyone,

You've got a noobe here in need of advice!

I've decided to convert from oil to propane (no natural gas in my town), and heard differing opinions about condensing boilers. I have hot water base boards. I've received a few bids that recommend a condensing boiler, but my latest quote said otherwise. The theory is that since I have hot water baseboards, the water returning to the boiler is not cool enough to make a condensing boiler effective.

I'm just wondering about the advantages of either given my situation. I understand that going with a condensing boiler would allow for expansion in terms of putting in radiant floor heating.

Thanks for any advice!
