    The Knight is a space heating boiler, the Noble is a Combi that does both space and domestic heating. Both are excellent boilers, but you better concentrate on finding a COMPETENT hydronic contractor. They're 98% of the equation and few are far between.

    Also, the Noble may look like the better bargain, but a combi that is of sufficient size for domestic is almost always way oversized for space heating and will require the addition of a buffer tank to keep it from short cycling to death. A boiler that's PROPERLY sized for space heating + an indirect water heater is usually the best choice.
