How big you need? Keystoker has on their website up to 1 million BTU's but personally if it were me and I'd do 2 in tandem or 3,4,5... If one breaks you still have heat.

The difference is ASME rating. Commercial applications it is often demanded by the state or the insurance companies. The AHS get's an extra $2,000 for basically the same boiler if you want the ASME sticker. Basically it is a paperwork trail of the steel and parts in the boiler as well as documentation of who welded it and their certification.

Check out http://www.Axeman-Anderson.com I'm pretty sure their boilers meet all specs.

It also includes inspections by ASME certified inspectors of the internal welds, materials and manufacturing processes. You are looking for an H stamped boiler.
