reliable condensing boilers

Stan_3 Member Posts: 1
I am preparing to put hydronic heat in a new farm shop of
3500 sq.feet. I have decided to go with a condensing boiler
for efficiency. At this point the most available in my area
are the Trinity and Weil-McLain Ultra. I would like to know
if either of these units have reliability problems, or if I
should continue my search for a Munchkin or Vitodens.
Thank-you for a wonderful site.

    in my opinion

    the jury is still out on the long-term reliablity for most condensing boilers. Ultra, Trinity, Munchkin have only been working in the real world for a few years at most. The Vitodens has the longest track record with the most time in the lab and the field. Having said all of this it is still important to find a great contractor who will support the product that he/she installs.
