condensing gas boilers

I like the Viessmann Vitodens

The Triangle tube Prestige,and the Baxi luna as they all are made of SS. and great to Install/Service.

I've serviced some Munchkins (Pinnicle) and did not care for the Setup/design and serviceability.

Just my Opion.Richard from Heatmeister..

    Mr. on the internet cliet wants a peerless pinnicale. How are these boilers? is the pinnicale really munchkin? What modulating condensing boilers do you guys like, not so much for ease of installatin, but for trouble free operation.

    Have yet to have any real problems with the Buderus GB 142

    Several fellow contractor freinds of mine report the same after several years of installing them - affordable too!

    On the Buderus the Manifold Kinda sucks..

    Looks like someone rigged it up in a Garage!

    How about some Isoflanges Watts?

    Also the Glycol requirements and the hole thing about which one to use from the very beginning was handled wrong!

    They should have done some more research before giving wrong advise which caused many Premature failures of the heat exchangers.

    Also i do not really like it when your pulling out buckets of Aluminium Oxide and are told not to clean the heat exchanger to good because the oxidation process will start all over again.

    Does anyone know how good the heat transfer is on Aluminium Oxide?

    Or your Condensate trap is so full of Oxide that the condensate backs up and the Draft inducer fails because of it!

    Most of the guys up in the high country have switched to the TT Prestige's.

    Stainless Steel is real....

    Just what i am seeing in the heating Mecca of the USA.
