Looking for new LP gas boiler recommendations to replace my Buderus GB142/30
Well, you've probably seen my other posts regarding my issue with my LP fired 2007 Buderus GB142. Short story is, ongoing issues with initial ignition. Usually 1-6 attempts to initially light (6A, 6L), usually when boiler is cold. In the last 3 years it will occasionally go out (6L) mid cycle and then relight. I reached the end of my abilities and equipment and called a tech in. Actually 7 of them before the 7th one found the issue (with the mid cycle (6L). He did more Dxing than any of the others. Cracked Hx. I did one under warranty 5 years ago. I'm not going through that again.
Now to the real question. I am seeking quotes for a new boiler installation from local HVAC firms. As you can imagine I'm pretty soured on Buderus (Bosch) at this point. For MANY reasons not just the above. Not that I can't be convinced, but it would have to be compelling.
I expect each company will (they should) do a heat loss analysis of their own. Right now my GB-142/30 suffices for my house and indirectly fired hot water Superstore. I am not interested in exact models but more interested in brands/company reputations and why I should buy THIS brand or THAT brand.
What am I looking for ? (Probably in this order)
3. Ease of maintenance and service.
4. Ease of availability and cost of replacement parts.
5. To some degree efficiency
I know each vendor will have their "go to" brand and I will certainly consider them (with good rationale). What would YOU choose?
