    hydronic boiler replacement

    Hi there!

    I'm a lead controls installer in Denver, CO. I am a electrician by trade, so I have that part of it down. However, I've posted questions on a boiler replacement for my home. Among the replies, it was suggested that I replace my old hydronic boiler with a mod/con. I'm looking for suggestions on brands and contractors recommended in the Lakewood or Wheatridge area of Colorado.

    I take it that hiring someone with mod/con boilers experience is the only way to go.

    With all that, any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    - Brian

    Weil McLain Ultra.

    Call around your area. See what the most common one installed is.
    If you pick a brand we recomend, and only one company installs them, your stuck if they don't know what their doning.

    Mod/Con boiler with indirect water heater

    You will be very happy with a Mod/Con. I started installing condensing boilers in Lakewood in 1987. Sorry, no longer there.

    Call a few contractors and ask them about mod/cons, if they hesitate or try to turn you on two cast-iron move down the list.

    The smart manufacturers keep a list of certified (the guys who take the time to go to a training class) and will be happy to give you a name or refer you to a local wholesaler that can.

    Common names are NIT-Trinity as arrudick mentioned but also look at the Munchkin-Contender, Weil McLain-Ultra, Buderus-GB142, Lochinvar-Knight, Triangle Tube-Prestige and Veissmann-Vitodens.

    Installation is key and experience and training make for a good system.
    Demand a heat loss analysis, this will eliminate half of your choices.
