What is the most popular gas steam boiler for a private homePost created: 2013-01-27 Type of Equipment: Boiler Views: 138
I have to replace my gast steam boiler as it is very old and it has to be refilled frequently. I am looking for the best brand of boilder. Some say Crown, others, Weill-Mclean, but neither is listed as #1 on this website.

Burnham apparently also makes a good boiler.
While there are some differences between the brands what you need to think about is what you are looking for in a boiler in terms of features and value adds such as extended guarantees/warranties, smart thermostat with purchase, and so on. The next thing to look at is who does the install. This is really important because you will not need the same size boiler that you have now due to changes in the technology. Therefore, you will need someone to do a manual J to assess the size you need. Also, most, or at least many problems with boilers and furnaces are due to poor installations so it is really important to hire someone you feel comfortable with. Therefore, if the HVAC tech you like the most suggests Weill-McLean then that may be the way to go.
Hope this helps.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
