Brick one-story house is 2600 sq ft with 45 year old gas-fired cast iron boiler with baseboard hot water heating and 3 zones. Separate AC and separate gas hot water heater (ready for replacement). HVAC (employee of local gas company) said not to get talked into replacing the boiler, but is this still good advice? We don't want to waste energy/pay too much for gas/electric use. But we don't want to replace anything that doesn't need replacing.

Well Kathy that is a good question and quite honestly it is a pretty hard one to
simply answer.

While the person recommending you keep it may think that is the best...
