The Laars Mascot is a discontinued high-efficiency, wall-mounted condensing combi boiler with up to 96% efficiency. It featured a stainless steel primary heat exchanger with externally welded manifolds, and a stainless steel brazed plate secondary heat exchanger for almost instantaneous direct hot water. The unit included a digital display of temperatures and fault codes to help monitor furnace operation and functions. A variable speed blower maintained quiet operation, and a direct spark ignition provided reliable start-ups. The boiler was set up for natural gas and easily converted to LP gas. The Mascot’s compact design allowed for installation in alcoves, laundry rooms and closets.
I payed dearly for this Unit, I wanted energy efficient. 8 g's installed. As soon as it was installed, discontinued by Larrs. Expansion tank leaked in just under a year, took 2 weeks to get another one. Tech leaked water all over the control board and dried it out with a heat gun, got blower error and it finally started working after playing with the Control board. One month later same error with Blower. Laars no longer supports the Unit, It's only one year old. It took two months to install by Irving??? Forget Energy efficient stuff, it's a money sucking black hole. Don't get a Larrs.
A consumer on heatinghelp.com received a frequent error code 133 from his Mascot and stated that the flame blew out when the unit tried to start. The flame sensor was changed with poor results, but then the regulator was replaced and fixed the problem. A consumer on terrylove.com had the same error code and problem and also replaced the regulator.
