Hello all... I am in the process of determining the right size combi-boiler for my needs. That seemed to be the hardest thing to do, but maybe it isn't. Once the right size selected, there's a slew of choices from different companies, some are within the US while others are from different countries.
Once you decide on the right size, how do you select the company that made the boiler? Is it based on repair record, reviews, reputation, warranty period, installer, etc?
I understand that the installer is the one, who will do warranty and any other repairs, selecting the right installer is probably more important than the manufacturer.
With that said, what is the general consensus for the "best" brand of combi-boilers? I am aware, that this might be a "loaded question", apologize in advance in that case. I tried to search reviews on the web, but each sites rate different manufacturers, cannot really compare the results.
So far, I've seen three contractors and all three of them recommended IBC boilers. There's no doubt that IBC makes fine boilers, but all three of them recommending IBC seems strange. These boilers are either really good, or there might be some financial interest for the contractor. I would not mind their financial interest, if the IBC boilers are really that good.
