Cast Iron vs High Effficiency
Hi all, I am naive when it comes to anything related to plumbing and heating.
We need to replace our 30 year old gas boiler and have had a few quotes. Much debate about HE vs Cast Iron.
1) life span of one vs the other
2)Maintenence required for each and if no maintenence done, does it void the warranty?
3) Overall cost to install
Our house is not particularly energy efficient, not sure if we will make improvements to this.
We live outside Boston -- winters can be mild or horrible (do you read Farmer's Almanac?)
Thanks for any input. Let me know if any other info may be helpful
