Broken Circulation Pump / Potential Heating Unit Replacement
I have a broken circulation pump. Currently I have a regular old water heater tank connected to radiant heating and domestic water. I had a tech come out, and they said my water heater was 12 years old so might as well just replace it.
They quoted me on a Navien NCB 240 for my 2 bedroom 1 bath home (1000 sqft) with 2 zone radiant floor heating. My neighbor (same townhome) had the work done exactly two years ago from the same company and same Navien unit. They were quoted and they paid $ for the work. Two years later, they are quoting $...
My questions are.
- Is Navien NCB 240 overkill for my living space?
- Is that quote reasonable? If so why the 40% price increase in only two years?
- Read some threads with Navien detractors here. Should I find someone who would install something else?
- Temperatures are about to dip below freezing ~25F for a few days. I have a 24000 BTU / hr fireplace I can run full blast to try to mitigate things some. Do I need to worry about my pipes?
