Drawing a blank here on code reference
For a hot water baseboard boiler I need a disconnect why? Does it fall under appliance? Or motor for the pump?
Second can I mount the disconnect on an 8' ceiling? I know breakers cant be higher than about 6' something but is discos different?

From my local state and utility co mandate, a means of disconnect outside of the boiler room in event of fire and one means of disconnect within sight for means of service.

I assume you are talking gas fired boiler,the AHJ in our area lets the breakers in the electric boilers serve as the disco,I would say for a gas boiler 422.30 might be the rule for providing a disconnecting means motor driven appliance.
