    Thermopride OH6 2 stage Oil

    Need to replace an existing Carrier lowboy, 100,000 btu, 17 years old. Was considering Thermopride lowboy w/Reillo and ECM, but am now looking at their OH6 2 stage w/Reillo for a couple of reasons.
    1. 2 stage promotes to offer smoother performance and some cost savings
    2. Where the existing furnace is, it is difficult for the oil service men to service do to close proximity to a wall in the basement. The OH6 will offer better service access.

    Appreciate any experiences with the OH6 2 Stage. Any issues with this Reillo burner - I've been told it has only been available for a couple of years in the US. Any issues with control board failures?

    Thank you for your help.

    No problems with the Reillo burner. The Reillo has been around for a good while.

    Not all companies know how to work on the Reillo though.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    I was curios so I looked it up. Established in the US in 1980.

    2 stage reillo

    Sorry I wasn't clear. I know that Reillo has been around for many years in the US - however this new 2 stage burner has not. It is being made just for Thermopride. There is not a significant cost difference between the OH6 and the 2 stage OH6. I'm concerned about reliability.
