looking at a 6 unit 5500 sq ft buliding ( one bedroom units) with one american standard old boiler as the sole heat source. How much does it cost to replace boiler and labor complete . Im thinking 7k to worst case 12k ??? --68.133.xx.xx

Depends what your going to put there. High efficiency or conventional. Are you doing a central hot water off the boiler too? --71.184.xxx.xx

If wanted to upgrade efficiency without going to condensing then consider the Slant Fin power vent cast iron boiler where stainless steel venting right through the wall. It would take close to 200,000 Btu or bit less. There are two parts to a boiler first the cost of the boiler then the cost of labour to install. If could price out the cost of boiler on line or other sources then could estimate labour. If the existing boiler was removed then the cost of labour would be only be install once the gas line is capped for safety. A power vent boiler does not require a chimney where the cost of lining a chimney is not required. A common practice is to buy a packaged boiler which includes water lubricated circulation pump where every thing is easily piped in. If there is direct fired water heater then consider installing a indirect hot water tank which is much more efficient as there is less one degree per hour heat loss in stand by. Everyone has a different approach where some want to spend a bit more but get the money back in reduced energy consumption and other operating costs. Take the boiler room or area consider installing pipe insulation where all the heating pipes, hot water pipes are insulated where more goes into the building instead of the boiler area. View some videos on You Tube about different types of gas boilers or if a oil boiler. --99.236.xxx.xxx

Look at a Tekmar electronic boiler control where heat is controlled precisely where if a window is left open boiler temperature does not increase along with a warm weather shut down where the outside temperature can be set to turn of boiler and circulation pumps on warmer days and nights. Over a period of a year the cost of electronic boiler control is paid off in energy savings along less wear and tear on the heating equipment. If the building is using copper finned baseboards then cleaning out all fins with a shop vac or air compressor along with installing reflective tape on top of the fins will direct more heat at a lower temperature into the room. --99.236.xxx.xxx

Sure would help to have a bit more info such as is the existing one oil or natural gas. Around here the utilities have some generous rebates for upgrading existing gas fired boilers & furnaces. They also have some incentives to convert over to natural gas. Last year I got back almost 65% of my cost to upgrade 3 gas boilers to high efficiency Lochinvar boilers with super store water heaters. I got money back on the boilers, the circulators, the super stores & the Tstats.
I suggest that you check with your utility first then contact a few contractors to get their input. This might be an ideal time to switch over to 6 individual systems & let them control their own heating bills. --71.184.xxx.xx

More expensive upfront is to install two gas boilers instead of one where each boiler is half the size of the existing gas boiler which is more efficient as most of time one gas boiler is used so there is less heat loss along with if one gas boiler fails then there is always heat. High efficiency gas boilers have loss mass where only about 4 litres of water are in gas boilers where installing a Spiro vent air and dirt separator system is essential or the boilers will start to give problems as the black sludge in the system plugs up circulation. What a boiler system is a heating plant where every thing has to improved like insulating all the pipes so the system uses less energy all year round. More expensive upfront where installing a wall mounted high efficiency gas boiler in each rental unit then the control and pay for the heat they use. --99.236.xxx.xxx

Last 2 I paid for both gas (propane), high efficientcy , and out fitted for AC. One SF house had to run all new duct work 7k.
Other was connecting to existing duct work 7400 sq/ft building. Changing from oil to propane... 8.5k --71.241.xxx.xxx

Oil or gas?
Hot water or steamer?
Age of building?
Boiler in a basement or ground level?
Why do you want to replace?

have you looked into modern controls and insulating the one you have? --76.188.xxx.xxx
