I've been compiling several estimates for a new heating system in my home -- the whole project includes installing a new boiler, some kind of hot water heater/tank, and replacing my oil tank with a new Roth double wall tank.
In regard to the boilers and water tanks, I'm going to be dropping a lot of money so I want to make sure I make the best decision for my home -- a one story ranch; 1200 square feet; forced hot water heat; two zones (plus a future 3rd zone for a 1000sf basement to be finished later). I have no plans to move from this home.
Here are the best two offers so far from reputable installers:
1. Energy Kinetics System 2000. Beckett 3450 AFG burner. System 2000 40 gallon domestic hot water storage tank (stainless steel).
2. Buderus G115/21 cast iron hot water boiler. Riello F40 burner. Super Stor SSU45 indirect hot water heater.
I'm trying hard to educate myself as much as possible to make a good decision. I would appreciate any advice from those of you who have more experience than me in this field.
