    The Buderus LT only comes with a well for the aquastat. The Logamatic comes with the 10K sensor.

    Unless your in the Arctic Circle I'd get the Solo 60 and keep the LT 160. The Solo 110 is probably too big. The LT 160 does my one full bath home just fine with a family of four.

    The TT boiler can be programmed to work with either an aquastat (4006) or it's sensor for a domestic hot water demand.

    The TT boiler comes with the sensor for the domestic tank and it will fit into the well of the Buderus tank. When the Buderus sensor is used it gets clipped to the front of the tank on the LT's...

    The boiler should be sized for the heat loss of the house. The indirect should be sized for the hot water demand. If the amount of hot water with an LT 200 may be an issue, get a larger indirect. ...

    Nope, I put one in a crawlspace a few years ago for just that reason. In my own house I have space issues and the boiler is on top of the LT.

    Why are you getting an LT, they take up more room than the equivalent sized ST tank?
    It will couple just fine to the TT Solo 110.

    FYI I have an LT 160 in my own home, 8 years old now.

    You won't be sorry with the B-3, your fuel consumption will go down. With regard to the heat loss, the B-3 is as small as you can go so as long as it's large enough, problem solved!
