Utica SSC or Navien NFB

njjohn Member Posts: 3
I’m finishing a house and I was going to install Utica SSC100 with a indirect tank. My supplier shipped a four year old open box boiler which I sent back. They don’t have any new style Utica SSC100 in stock so I’m thinking about the new Navien NFB which has a built in zone/pump controller. I would appreciate any input as to what your selection would be and why. I hear Navien has a great tech support.

    What's the actual heat loss of the house? Has a load calc been done?

    If an SSC 100 was the correct size boiler, why would you go to the Navien which only comes in 175k or 200k btus?

    Also, I'm not sure what you mean when you mention a "new style" SSC? The SSC is the basically same as it has been since it was introduced.
