In fairness to all, we don't discuss pricing on the Wall. Thanks for your cooperation.
Still trying to figure out the burner...the modulating is out as apparently it's only for commercial and very loud. Anyone ever heard that? So it looks like something with a hi-lo setting. We're looking into Becket and another brand I'm not familiar with. I should know tomorrow.
My question is this: I've requested the SF intrepid50x2 with power burners, but I'm being strongly pressured to go with the caravan Galaxy with a normal burner.. I never bothered looking at the Galaxy because it seemed really similar to the Dunkirk I currently have.My understanding is that the wb boilers with pb are superior for efficiency, and longevity. I've never read anything else here. Why would the Galaxy be pushed...even when I've said I want the intrepid. Any insight would be appreciated as I don't know how to respond when asked (repeatedly) why I don't just get the caravan Galaxy with normal burner.
If I do that I might as well just get new sections and a new gas valve for my current boiler and save myself a lot of trouble, but not much cash in the end.
I was getting excited over this install, but now not so much.
