New EK1 System 2000 input

edited August 2023 in Gas Heating

I have an indirect Vaughn water tank with peerless gas boiler that is 19 years old. I have the Vaughn water tank (stone tank) that is 17 years old. I’m considering putting in the system 2000 and was quoted $ that includes all parts and labor. There is a $1000 rebate with the utility company bringing it to $. No leaks or issues with water tank - couple minor things (filter replacements) with the peerless boiler/furnace. Thoughts? Just want to be proactive but is this a good system? I have a family of four.

    EK is a high quality brand. If you could please remove your pricing we aren't supposed to share pricing on this forum

    I’d incorporate that Vaughn tank.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Ok sorry about that. Thanks for the input. Just curious if this is a good value.

    If your talking about the EK-1 Frontier, then it's a home run. I'd be more concerned about vetting the contractor, especially if your reusing the indirect. But only EK dealers install EK systems, so you should be good. I'm not sure but I believe the indirect will get piped as a zone, not using the plate heat exchanger. The EK water heater is piped differently, so you'll also lose the post purge of dumping unused BTU's into the water heater if you don't use their water heater. 
    If the house is huuuge, then the EK-2 might be in order. Also if there's any Jacuzzis, or rain heads, that should be addressed as well.

    It’s supposedly the System 2000 EK1 Frontier but that system I’m seeing on their website as an oil heating source so I’m confused. I have natural gas. There’s all different models for the natural gas. I plan to use their water heater too. My house is 2300 sq ft. No jacuzzis here.

    Still could be the EK-1 Frontier with a gas burner.
