Comments about P203 45,000 BTU Output, Standing Pilot Cast Iron Boiler (Nat Gas):
Bought this to replace an old similar Burnham boiler. It is easy to handle, and works good.
Comments about P203 45,000 BTU Output, Standing Pilot Cast Iron Boiler (Propane):
Used Burnham boilers for over 6 years, and I'm glad to have recently found a well priced source [...] Had trouble getting the pilot to stay lit, originally I thought it was due to windy conditions, but even on wind still days it would go out. Checked the gas pressure [LP], it was correct. Removed the pilot assembly to make sure the orfice was clean, adjusted the pilot flame size, all to no avail. Finally tweaked the thermocouple/pilot assembly plate to bring the thermocouple 1/16" closer to the pilot and that did it, no more pilot going out at random times.Good product and I will continue to use, however maybe quality control could be improved.

Q:Not sure if this comes under Compatibilty. I need a new furnance I got two estimates.One is for a Burnham #203 PI LP Gas Boiler and the other is a Burnham 303 PI LP gas. My house is 1100 Sq. feet. Would like to know if one would be better than the other for heating my house?
A:Either unit would work as long as they can both meet the BTU requirement of your house. Series 3 units are more efficient than Series 2 models. Series 3 boilers also feature the IQ Control System.
Q:new to boilers this is my first home, I'm looking for a natural gas boiler that can cover 1898 sq ft and three heat zones, name brand burnhan if possible?
A:Any Burnham boiler can heat three zones if the zones are set up properly. The P203 may be undersized for a house that size, but the only way to be sure would be to determine a BTU requirement. In addition to square footage, climate and the insulation quality play a role in calculating this figure. Our BTU Calculator ( http://www.pexsupply.com/pex/control/BTUCalculator ) can give you a good estimate, but a full heat loss calculation may be necessary.
Q:Why must the chimney be 15 feet high by 4"? If a chimney has a much larger diameter, can it be shorter? Where do you measure from? Top of the boiler or top of the damper, etc.?
A:We would not advise that you deviate from the manufacturer's recommendations. The 15' length is from the bottom of the draft hood opening to the top of the chimney.
