Help! Replacement Boiler: Buderus GB142 or Burnham Alpine?

Good Day! I have a 1950's 1,500 sq ft

Cape Cod home in SE Wisconsin with an 8 year old oil-burning Burnham

boiler with baseboards and will be converting to a new natural gas

burning mod-con boiler.

I would sure appreciate your help in choosing either the Buderus GB142

(85,500 btu) with their S-120 32 gallon indirect water heater or a

Burnham Alpine (105,000 btu) boiler with a Themoflo #DHW-46 46 gallon


Installed pricing from two contractors, both with excellent reputations

are within $300 of each other. Both have 10 year guarantees by the

installers as long as yearly inspection is carried out. To get it

installed by year end, I need to make a decision by Monday.

Are there strong preferences out there for recommending either brand

given similar warranties? Is one better engineered, might hold up

longer once the 10-year warranty is up, etc?

I REALLY appreciate your help...I am STUCK in an indecision mode! Thanks greatly!
