    As stated many times here, go with a good..... make that great contractor and use his prefered brand. Most heating equipment that you'll here people bashing was not the fault of the brand at all. The fault is shared between the poor installation and the costumer with a bad case of walmartitis.

    boilers have improved so much. i agree that the install is what makes the difference. consider honeywell boiler reset & a good thermostat.cheap isnt the way to go, you will pay more in the end

    Like said before it's the install that counts. I myself like Crown.
    Not what it use to be

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Confused




    Isn't true that the high efficiency boilers tend to fail sooner (lighter construction), require more maintenance and actually do NOT deliver the advertised efficiency levels unless right conditions (i.e. lab) are present (something about temperature of water when returning back to unit having to be cooler).
    Eager to learn, willing to teach, reluctant to admit defeat.

    Gas?

    Currently my vote goes to Munchkin. I actually put one in my Shop for the infloor heat this weekend. Quiet, I believe the most efficient out there.

    Now if your looking for an electric Boiler, I would recommend Electromate Industries.

    However there are many others out there also that do the job!

    Installation as always is the key. I enjoy installing/Servicing Boilers. I do not enjoy ductwork

    You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel...

    You won't get 95% AFUE running 190°, still get 88 to 90% SSE, can use true outdoor reset, don't have to maintain high water return temp when its 45° out. Haven't had excess failures so far.
