I have a 68 series Weil Mclain oil boiler (151 MBH output) that was installed in 1992, and is starting to show its age. The heating is two zones, one for the hot water and one for the house. I'm considering getting it replaced before winter (I live in Maine), and reached out to two companies for quotes. Both are locally owned, fairly small companies. I received quotes for vastly different amounts (~$ different), and was wondering if anyone out there could help me make sense of the "better" value. I want to make sure what I put in is going to last, and that it will be easy to maintain in the coming years.
-Replace boiler with Pensotti Quatech DK-2-5 boiler (151 MBH output)
- install circulators on supply instead of where they currently are on the return
- Install brass circulator flanges with shut offs
- Various plumbing to install new boiler
-Replace boiler with Biasi B10/4 (94 MBH output)
-various plumbing to install
-install circulators on supply instead of return
I guess my main question is, is Company A ripping me off, or is Company B a hack job that I'll pay for in the long run?
