I have a tankless water heater system with forced hot water

I have a tankless water heater system with forced hot water furnace in a small room downstairs in the "in law" apt in a hallway between the bedroom and bathroom. Recently I had a hole drilled in the concrete foundation (4") and added a vent pipe into the room for a fresh air intake. My question is this, oh btw it is a 2438 sq. ft. Home 4 bed 3 bath, would I need to install an inline fan or "fan in a can" to supplement the fresh air coming into the room for the burner, or should the free flowing air coming in be sufficient ? If there is a need for the fan, which type would be preferable ? The reason I ask is that the room gets really hot if the door stays closed (the only other venting was a 12 by 12 vent to the left of the door) and the interior of the room is covered in soot

I have a weil mclain boiler that was installed in 2004. It's

Hi, I have a weil mclain boiler that was installed in 2004. It's a LP version and I have two problems: 1) when I take a shower the boiler comes on, runs its cycle and when it hits 4186 the power to it goes off. The screen is dark, the boiler is completely shut down. I have had plumbers and electricians out here, no one knows what is causing this and it will mean I won't have heat or hot water for the winter. 2) there is a leak somewhere in the system, I lose 2-4# ***** a day. I think we'll be able to put a valve on that to refill as necessary. The boiler itself had a maintenance kit put on it last October so it has been maintained. I really need help as I'm out of options for local service people.
