I’m in need of direction. Very grateful for any input.

I am a new home owner in Queens NY and the current setup is just a Ford Product Oil Boiler (this unit/company is so antiquated that there is zero info anywhere on this unit!) for DHW and hydronic baseboard heating. 1650 sq ft home - 2 zones and 2 bathrooms.

I purchased a Hybrid Rheem 50gal. to provide the DHW and just use the boiler for heating but the boiler isn’t going to last the winter. I have not yet added the Hybrid and need to purchase a new boiler. I am not looking at any other options, as money is tight. That being said I am going to take on this project myself (some help from my knowledgeable father in law).

can someone help me decide on the right boiler.

-steel vs cast iron
-Is a cold start boiler the best option for running the boiler just for heating needs?
- single pass or triple pass?

I’m trying to keep a reasonable budget that gets the job done.

I appreciate all your input and would even love input on things I might be forgetting in the post

thank you
