"3 Boilers 11 years"
I replaced a 65 year old converted coal to oil furnace in 2000. It worked fine but was inefficient. I replaced it in 1999 with a Burnham series 7. It only lasted until 2006 and I had a cracked block. They replaced it and I had to pay 1500.00 for shipping and labor. Now I just found out my 2006 series 8 is also cracked. There is no corosian, just a large crack in the cast iron. They blame everything from salt in the roads to my oil service didn't repair it correctly. To my surprise, the warranty doesn't apply to 2006, it goes back to 1999. So, conviniently Burnham will not honor the 2006 replacement. I am in the process of dealing with the company. Next, into the attorney general, bbb and any Consumer Affairs reporter in Massachusetts.

Bought a new Burnam furnace in 1997. The cast iron started leaking in 1999. Burnham replace the furnace free of charge including labor.

"Possibly the best boiler on the market"
I purchased this boiler just over a month ago and now I don't know how I ever lived without it. There are many things that I like about it. It works very quickly and I never find myself waiting for it to work. It is also extremely efficient, I have lowed my utility bill a great deal since installing this boiler. With my old boiler I was spending a fortune running it and maintaining it. My favorite feature is that it has an excellent ability to condense which gives it maximum efficiency. The main thing that I did not like about this boiler was having to pay for it, it is relatively expensive but it is well worth the money and it will end up paying for itself in the long run. Also it was not simple to install. I would recommend this to a friend but I would also suggest that they all a professional to install it. I would buy this product again but I am expecting that it will last long enough that I won't have to.

"Burnham has achieved very high ratings and is considered to be "very solid.""
I have own my boiler ever since I moved into my house for about 10 years. I like that my boiler. The meet the triple requirements that are judged by each boiler which is excellent construction, sound design, and ace performance. The boiler has the ability to heat up the entire room which creates a cozy and soft environment. The only thing I dislike about my boiler would be that the noise is very loud and distracting but other then that it has very high results and great quality. This brand comes with a limited time warrenty, so if I had to ever replace my boiler I would always continue to use the same brand. This brand has great reviews as well and hasn't yet caused much of an inconvience. I would definitely recommend my boiler to my friends because it works extremely well and is very efficent. I know that my friends would then choose this boiler over any other leading brand.

"MegaSteam boiler is an amazing boiler"
I have owned my boiler for about 8 months now and i think its fantastic . I like that it is an energy star product and it has a great warranty ,i purchased an extended warranty and that lasts for 10 years it cover most parts and issues with the boiler . My water is always hot and i never have to worry about my bathwater being cold because someone is doing the dishes or laundry . the one thing i did not like was the price it was pretty expensive but it is worth the money . i still have not had to replace any parts or repair it in anyway which i find very impressive , i would recommend the mega steam to anyone who uses allot of hot water or hates to fill there boiler often , i would most definitely buy this product again . it was actually really easy to install my husband did it himself in an hour or so . i rarely have to fill it with oil it seems to last forever .

"An Excellent Boiler of High Quality"
My last boiler broke down for good a little over a year ago after a few years of terrible service and so I decided to finally splurge and replace it with something reliable. I found this boiler to be an excellent replacement; as soon as I had it installed, I knew that I had made the right choice because it actually worked, and it worked well. I did not need to worry about it sputtering out or breaking down randomly. The only thing I had a marginal dislike for was the color of the boiler, though since I don't really see it, this is an unimportant concern so it is not worthy of attention. Never have I needed to replace or repair it and with how excellent it is, I doubt that I will ever have to. Overall, this Burnham boiler has been excellent and if given the opportunity, I would buy this brand again in a heartbeat as well as tell my friends about how useful they are.

"Burnham ALP 105 Alpine - Finally, Warm Water all Winter!"
Over the past few years we have been slowly trying to make more energy conscious choices to our home. Recently we upgraded our old boiler, tired of the constant cold showers and wonky water temperatures. We upgraded to the Burnham ALP105 Alpine Boiler, finally ridding ourselves of the problem boiler that was installed before we bought the house. Initially, we chose this boiler because after much research it was from a reputable line and qualified as Energy Star compliant. It was well within our price range and the change is noticeable. My gas bill has been noticeably lower. Even though this was an item we initially overlooked in our home repairs the benefit is priceless, we have saved money and no more water temperature issues. I can finally take a long hot bath after the end of the day with no problems and last winter was the first winter where all our family members could take a warm shower in the morning.

"Junk Burnham boiler"
The same story happened. The Burnham oil boiler installed in 1999 at my house started to leak water. We have to replace this junk boiler.

"One VERY Satisfied Customer"
I've owned my boiler for a little over two months now after my last boiler stopped effectively heating. I like this because it always seems to be ready for me; when I'm in the middle of a shower, the water no longer suddenly turns ice cold on me. After putting up with a boiler that put me through that agony almost daily, take my word for it, being able to wake up and shower without this fear is amazing. I will concede that at times the water seems a little slow to heat at first, but this is the only complaint I have. I have never needed to replace or repair my model and neither do I believe it will be necessary, as it has thus far worked extraordinarily well. I plan on purchasing the same brand again, when the need arises and I already have recommended it to several friends, all of whom have been similarly satisfied with the efficiency of the product.

"Don't Buy a Burnham"
Block cracked, had to pay $800.00 in labor. Asked Burnham to reimburse me and stand by their product. Guess what??? They don't care about their customers. The last time I will purchase one of their products. I joined a class-action law suit against them.
