    Hi Everyone

    Trying to decide on a new boiler and one vendor wants to install a EnergyKinectics2000 boiler claiming it has a stainless steel heat exchanger and is the most effecient boiler one could buy.

    I also notice some vendors are selling Weil-McLain 230

    Anyone have any experience good or bad with these boilers?

    Everyone is saying go with hydro-air and I hear it's no different than hot air heat as heated air is heated air. I wanted to do cast iron baseboard and most vendors look at me funny.

    ANy thoughts on either heating methods?:confused:

    There are numerous manufacturers of boilers out there. I just had a Buderus installed. Seems to be working fine, but it will be instructive when I get the next couple of gas bills. The $800 rebate from the utility company didn't hurt, either.

    I looked at Viessman ($$), Weil McLain (okay, but I didn't like the aluminum heat exchanger), Munchkin, and a couple others. Never heard of this brand. One thing to consider is how long they've been in business and on parts availability. Buderus' US headquarters is about 10 miles from my house, so hopefully, if I need parts, they'll be quick!
