Weil Mclain Burner to Beckett Burner
I recently had my oil company service tech tell me that I should replace my Weil Mclain brand burner with a new Beckett burner to help with the efficiency of my system. The reasoning was that the Weil Mclain burners (I believe early 2000 vintage) were not good quality and was subsequently discontinued after a few years of production. Seems to make sense given I cannot find any information on the Internet on Weil brand burners. It works okay throughout the winter but will often need an cad eye replaced at least once during the winter and I do get occasional misfires and or soot puff-back (nothing that fills the basement). And my boiler is also a Weil brand WGO 3 I believe which I have been told on many occasions is in excellent shape.
1) Is there any other pros out there that share my oil company's recommendation to replace?
2) Is it normal to have to replace parts such as the eye annually?
3) Is there anything else that could cause misfires / puff-back besides a faulty burner?
Thanks in advance.
