    I have a oil fired Weil Mclain boiler that does our baseboard heat and heats our hotwater. My current Aquabooster is old and will need replacing soon. I was in need of which system is more efficient- an Aquabooster tank or a tankless setup through my boiler that is on demand. My current Aquabooster is 110VAC plug in type, so I assume the new one would be as well. The prices are ranging right around $1500.00 clams for a new Aquabooster, which is why I am exploring my options. I have a small house with just my wife and I. Thanks in advance.

    Doesn't your booster tank feed of a tankless coil in your boiler now? Anything using a tankless coil in a boiler is not the most efficent way to make hot water, just the cheapest to install.

    Yes, the aquabooster now feeds from the coil. So you mean I should replace my existing aquabooster with a new one and call it a day? How much electricity does an Aquabooster use? Does the 110VAC power a heating coil in the booster tank or just the circulator on it? My current one is a Ford...

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

    Pice out indirect tanks also. Especially if the coil is old and it looks like it might start leaking.
