Triangle Prestige Excellence

StefKStefK Posts: 8Member
After comparing different boilers including the Buderus 142 , Lochinvar 105 , the HTP Elite and the Burnham Alpine and after reading alot of different information on this site and others I have decided on replacing my gas boiler with the Triangle Tube Prestige Excellence. I was leary of the aluminum HX with the Buderus and the others didn't seem to have the track record of the TT. Just wondering if anyone might have any reason to not use this particular boiler. Thanks

    Prestige Excellence

    A great boiler from a great company.  Be sure the sizing calculations are done and that you understand them.

    While a good product. This one has a much better warranty, combustion system and will provide better DHW production.

    Make sure you calculate your domestic hot water demand accurately. This boiler is awesome in a lot of ways but if you are looking to fill a big tub it may fall short.

    Do quite a few Excellence with very good results,same with Viessmann,although I have no first hand experience with the Combi plus.

    need new heating system -propane & have 2 quotes but...

    Hello from Northern MN. I live in a 2000 sq ft home near Duluth , MN and our old oil hot water , baseboard heating system is barely hanging on.

    I have had two estimates for new propane heaters and am lost. Can you help?

    One calls for installing a New Prestige Triangle Tube Boiler Combo Unit w/all piping/venting removal. ~$8k ` 93% efficient

    Other calls for installing a Peerless Purefire model PF-110LP + Amtrol brand 41gal indirect water storage tank LF 41G ~$8.5k + $1200 =`$11k ` 95.84% efficient

    Is one better than the other and does the 4k difference make sense?

    No Pricing

    We cannot discuss pricing.

    The peerless has a giovanni exchanger. It is an older design and will require a larger circulator.

    The Triangle tube prestige excellence (not challenger) has a firetube exchanger. The firetubes use less circulator enegy and tend to require a bit less maintenance and cleaning.

    The AFUE rating on the peerless is 93% and the triangle tube 95%

    I would not recommend any amtrol indirect. They have quite small exchangers and tend to calcify over time.

    If it were mine, I would do a heat loss calculation on the house and size the correct boiler and indirect.

    Chances are, you would be looking at 60K btu or less for the boiler, 110 is way oversized. I like stainless steel indirects like heatflo or superstore.
