Upgrading Beckett AFG

I was looking at my Beckett AFG burner and looked up it up on becketts website and saw they have upgraded control, fuel pump, igniter and motor parts. These all look compatible with my burner but are any of them worth swapping out? Mostly curious about control with the fuel pump for valve on delay and post purge capabilities, but is any of these upgrades going to save me money? Or should i stick with whats working?

    AFG Upgrade

    All of these upgrades would be worth doing during a repair that required the part to be changed. But they wouldn't be cost effective to change otherwise.

    The two that make the most sense

    are valve-on delay, which cleans up the starts and stops, and an upgraded primary control with a 15-second trial for ignition, so the burner won't run longer than that if it fails to ignite.



    The rest? When the old ones wear out.

    Thank you

    I think that answers my question, i was planning on waiting till parts go out but since boilers and burners are all new to me figured i would ask around. Trying to get the most out of my system i can get. :)
