Lochinvar KHN85 vs HTP UFT80 (really Westinghouse)
Planning my boiler replacement and need to choose between Lochinvar and Westinghouse/HTP.
2900 sqft house in Northern New Jersey. Heat loss of 63K total, 38k on first floor and 25K on second floor. 80ft of finned tube baseboard on first floor, 70 ft on second floor. Baseboard tubes are all 1/2". Two zones; one for first floor and one on second floor.
Both modcons have 10:1 turn down. Quick internet search suggests $1,700 for Westinghouse, $3,300 for Lochinvar. I believe Lochinvar has a circulator while Westinghouse will need one (advantage as I can getting a delta P circulator).
Plan is to pipe direct like current cast iron non condensing boiler. I think both of these boilers can work piped direct. I will also add an indirect for DHW (perhaps a reverse flow Turbomax but not sure yet).
Boiler will be in unfinished unconditioned walkout basement (about 1/3 of basement is above grade, 2/3 below grade).
Trying to figure out if $1,600 premium for Lochinvar is worth it? I guess the included pump closes the price gap a little.
