    My Choice

    I prefer the Burnham, I just don't like WM. I have to be honest though, your question is like asking what is better, a Ford or Chevy.

    I feel the same,

    They're both excellent boilers, but I would lean towards the W/M.

    Perhaps the contractor should make the call? They are within a few bucks of each other so the boiler cost would have no impact on his choice. Assuming he'll be the one servicing it over time, let him call the brand.

    good post

    If you're looking for technical advantages of one over another, I don't beleive you'll find em'. This is an opinion type post. I prefer W/M for serviceability and their proven track record. The Riello is an excellent choice for either application. I've sold both oil and gas fired W/M & Burnham. For gas I'd go Burnham. For oil I'd go Weil. I'm curious to read other opinions regarding this
