I may not be the genius, but it would be nice to know how you can generate 200,000 BTU when your boiler is only 110,000 BTU
Just keep in mind, back up options aren't usually intented as full functions, one example is the donut spare tire, it's good for backup, but not for main use.
And I do agree with the expense of permanently installed electric base board heaters, but I actulally meant for the portable plug in ones, they make great backup options, for far less money.
