Oil Boiler repair or replace?
I'd like some advice on repairing or replacing my boiler. I have a Burnham RSA series steel oil boiler that has a crack in the chamber and it is only a matter of time before it burns through the back (outer casing on rear is showing burn marks). I've recieved a quote to repair the boiler by replacing the chamber and base and repairing the sheet metal on the rear for $1000. My other option is to obviously replace the boiler with a newer more efficient model at the cost of $6000 or more. Is it worth repairing the boiler, which is over 10 years old? Does anyone have any experience with repairs on this type of burnham boiler? Do you think I would get another 10 years out of it or am I wasting $$$ repairing it?
