I had an offer accepted on a house that has an archaic gas boiler. The home inspection revealed that the system showed signs of failure as the unit was actually rusted out on the side and weeping smoke when in use.
Now the seller is adamant they will not pay for any repair or replacement of this heating system, and I would like to get an idea of how much a new gas boiler system would cost. Of course I know there a lot of variables in this and seeing as I do not live there, it makes it a bit more tricky to have contractors come in and give me a formal estimate while the seller is trying to rush along the sale.
So with that said, is there anyone who has recently replaced a similar system or just has an idea of what it would cost?
House is 1875 sq ft, built in 1880, and is heated by the gas boiler feeding to I think 7 radiators. Windows, siding, and roof are all less than 5 yrs old and in good condition, but home is uninsulated in walls or attic.
