Okay so I am in a very competitive area and trying to focus on boiler work.I find most contractors are doing their own plumbing until they get a job where they need a licensed plumber.(pex and pvc made this a lot easier for them but it is what it is.)
When I approach a potential boiler job I have a heating consultant come with me,he performs heatloss etc,I know my limits.He designs my systems I install then he comes back for start up and does combustion analysis etc.
I am on a Nat Grid list of plumbers but find I cant compete with the large companies which I see like to use a Burnham Series 2 82%AFUE and free standing water heater.
I at the very least am trying to put in the ES2 with odr and indirect .Obviously it costs a little more but feel the return on investment is much better.Customers I find are looking at prices alone.Anyone got any tips.
I noticed a plumber on Long Island installs a lot of Veissman boilers so I know it is possible to get the best products out there.
Any thoughts would be apreciated,
