replacement for trianco heatmaker

The Burnham Minuteman II Boiler/Water Heater is pretty much a direct replacement for the Heatmaker. Heat Exchanger is cast iron and it vents with AL294C stainless. Hope this helps.

    NTI has a combination unit (one I saw had a hydro-air setup much as one of the Trianco's were). A brazed-plate DHW heater too but not sure of storage.

    I have no direct experience nor an opinion of the line, just that there was a reasonable facsimile to what the Trianco line set out to do.

    As I recall, the Trianco line had an assortment of three orifices/capacities in one unit. Not sure if this is the case also. Just a feature that may not be available so don't count on it.

    I have to imagine there is a way to cobble something together in the field what with today's smaller equipment.

    But then, not everyone can be a Ron Jr. .... :)

    Replacement For Heatmaker

    Laars bought Heatmaker in 1998. The Laars Endurance was designed to replace the Heatmaker, and we've been building it since. Go to www.laars.com or email me if you have questions. (I sort of show my email address below).

    A low-boy indirect

    with a small gas boiler or mod/con (if you can direct vent)
    on a rack above the tank might be an option also. Nice to have the seperate units for replacement issues.
