    I vote for the Energy Kinetics boiler as well.  Does your current boiler have a tankless coil or indirect tank for hot water? You will see significant savings in fuel oil usage with the Energy Kinetics boiler and hot water storage tank. 

    Viessman makes a fine boiler too but it will also come with a Riello oil burner most likely.  Many techs find the Carlin and Beckett burners more service friendly.

    And the EK is made in this country. The Vie$$mann? Nope.

    less water content, less metal mass, and awesome heat exchanger design along with the "post call for heat purge" built into the control system, will yield a lower operating cost with the System 2000
