"My Elite FT Gas Heating Water Boiler with 55,000 BTU Review"
I have used this boiler for 5 years, and I cannot remember how life was without it. This is one of the best boilers I have owned in my life. I like that is it quick to power on and does a great job of providing the needed service. If I had to state a thing that I do not like about it, I am not able to find a fault with it. I have not had to replace it in the previous 5 years. The boiler seems to keep going with nothing in its way. Absolutely a smart buy on my part. If I had to choose an option of buying this boiler or buying a different boiler, I would definitely buy the same boiler again. Like I said in the beginning of this review, I do not know how I could go so long without having this boiler.

"Great New Boiler will make you sweat!"
This year at our hunting lodge our boiler system (which was over 60 years old if you believe the grounds keeper) finally took the big dump on us and we needed to add up our due money to afford a new one. We already had like 6 grand in the coffer for this kind of stuff but to install the one we wanted was over 13,000 bucks and that was too high. We settled on the HTP for about $10,000 flat installed and for the price it's actually a great system. We need to crank the heat way up there to help out the guys. Most often we've been deep in the woods hunting for hours and we are frozen when we come back to the lodge to get warm. We've had it for about two months now and brother this new one will make you break out in an instant sweat if we want to crank it up and it does it fast too. We are in high demand for good consistent heat and out model EFT-285PU kicks about as much butt as the hunters who rely upon it. Highly recommended.
"HTP Boiler is AMAZING"
I have owned my HTP Elite FT boiler for almost 3 years now. I had an issue with my last boiler which was over 10 years old and decided to go with the HTP Elite FT after getting a great deal. The first thing I liked about the product is the look. The boiler is sleek and has a modern look, which was a lot more appealing compared to my old boiler. Second, I just love how it functions. It has a great recovery time for hot water and it is quiet, which is essential for my son, who sleeps in the basement. So far, I have not had to replace any parts and I have referred the product to a friend of mine who recently decided to buy a new boiler (I am not sure if he took my advice). Yes, I would buy it again.

Geoff – What is skewing the ratings is that, 99.99% of the happy owners don't come on here and tell the world how good their properly installed and maintained boiler runs. And how happy they are with their gas bills. I now have two HTP boilers on my property (one heats my barn and now an Elite FT-55 will heat my basement and four season porch). Go ahead and buy the Rinnai – I can't wait to read about it on the Rinnai bashing site. The boiler is 4 years old in box because they haven't been built for that long. You should have upgraded to the new Elite FT.
Among the few posts on HVAC forums regarding the Elite FT is one on heatinghelp.com asking for opinions on the unit. The responses were not negative but did say that it is similar to a Triangle Tube and has a heat exchanger similar to those used by other companies. A member on another post chose the Elite FT when given a choice between several boilers.
