preventive maintanace

i recently moved into a new home[ home is 12 years old] i have replaced all the baseboards in my home and added some , ive had to replace various pieces from my boiler [circulator , flo-chek valve]
i was wondering if there is any benefit of replacing my amtrol extrol model 30 with a model 60? or should i just replace it with the same model #

I think all of the components you've replaced should have an expected life of more than 12 years. But, whatever.

We can't size the expansion tank based on your information. If the existing tank has performed satisfactorily, without excessive pressure swings from cold to hot, I don't see any reason to increase the size.

What size boiler do you have? I assume the baseboard is copper tube baseboard.
