Energy Kinetics System 2000 new cost question
I've been getting ready to replace my boiler and after spending WAY too much time researching have decided to go for the EK1 system to replace my 20 year old Weil-McLain WGO-3 unit. The Weil-McLain is still running, but probably nearing end-of-life and my oil bills are absolutely too high.
I reached out the to local installer here (who I believe is a Premier Dealer for EK) and was quoted almost $ for the system with a 60 gallon hot water heater. This seems....... high.
I do not need the 60 gallon heater and have asked for a quote with a 40 gallon and specified I want the matching EK water heater. My current system is a 6 zone circulator system (4 heat zones, 1 radiant, plus additional hot water zone). I moved into this house last year and it was way overbuilt (4 individual condensers and associated air handlers for 3 bedrooms and living room ~2,400 sq. ft., but that's another story).
Is this the going rate for the system now? There aren't too many other dealers in my area (Shelter Island, NY), so I may be stuck. I just wanted to know if this is in line or if i'm being gouged. The installer is a highly rated company, but I cannot believe the price on this.
Also, is worth it to upgrade to the Resolute? What should the price increase be roughly?
