    Chosing new Oil boiler

    So i have narrowed my choices down somewhat. I am goin with an indirect HW with all of these choices, and an ODR. Im looking at the Buderus G115WS3, the Viessmann Vitorond 100 VR1-22, or the Burnahm MPO-IQ84. My only issue with the Buderus is the length might be an issue, so im leaning towards the Viessmann. And as far as burners....Riello has always had a great rep, but im hearing the becket NX series are excellent. Another consideration is quietness. Im not expecting it to be silent, but would like something tolerable. Would appreciate any feedback, and or suggestions.

    EDIT...Also..what about the crown Freeport???

    I like Buderus for cast iron boilers; they are highly resistant to thermal shock, but if it doesn't fit it doesn't fit. IMO, if they are installed properly, you can't go wrong with any of the brands you listed.

    I've always been intrigued by the Crown 3 pass Scotch Marine cast iron design, but I've never seen or used one in person. I think I remember specifying one once, but I got a Weil McLain submitted.

    For indirect HW I like Triangle Tube Smart series. They make the Indirect water heaters for Weil McLain. Tank in tank design instead of coils, they have a lifetime warranty for residential use.

    If you run a 115/3 with a Beckett NX and add the outside air kit to it, it will run pretty quiet. Not nearly as quiet as a System 2000, but pretty quiet for an oil fired boiler.

    I'm venting into an existing chimney, can the outside air kit still be installed?

    I don't have any experience with the Slant Fin, but I can tell you about the Buderus.

    Wow, nice install! Do you know what the minimum front of boiler to back of boiler with vent can be on it is? That would make up my mind to probably go with the buderus.

    Front to back on a G115/3 is about 45", that includes the whole thing, venting and burner. That doesn't include the clearance for the venting. How much space do you have front to back?

    Wow! That's a long sucker. I only have 53" from the back wall to the back of an open door. Unfortunately I can't move the door. I might have to consider a conventional "old school" boiler.
