I'd like to replace my boiler but not sure which one I need?

I'd like to replace my boiler but not sure which one I need. I'm getting $1500 incentive from my gas company since my boiler is very old.

My current gas boiler is American-Standard
Input=150000
Output=120000

This boiler was suppose to be for the entire house and in 1999 the house was converted into 2 Multi-Family. Upstairs and Downstairs. Now both units use this same American-Standard Boiler. Each unit is 792 sq ft. Upstairs I have 2 tenants and downstairs me and my gf.

I would like buy 2 separate boilers so my tenants can pay for their own gas bill. Currently I pay for gas/heat which adds up and of course tenant can abuse the heat since they don't pay for it. What BTU should I get for each unit based on the sq ft? This house is in Framingham, MA.

One can only GUESS based on the square footage of the home.

The proper way is to do a Manual J heat loss estimate, and we can not do that for you.

If you held my feet to the fire and made me talk, I would GUESS that two 30K BTUH boilers would probably do the job.
