I am replacing an old oil boiler (converting to Nat. Gas).
I have spoken to several compentent contractors regarding what makes sense as far as installing. I need to line chimney in the case of traditional cast iron boiler. I know the equip. costs more for condensing, but the fact I would not have to line chimney with a condensing, direct vent helps offset some of the cost..
This question of the newer Higher Eff. equipment versus traditonal boilers seems to be a big debate between the professionals who install them.
Besides picking the boiler brand, the type to install also brings out many varying suggestions. Any opinions would be appreciated
