The Utica UB95M-200 is a gas-fired modulating condensing boiler. The unit is Energy Star rated, with an efficiency rating of 92.5% AFUE. It features a cast aluminum monoblock heat exchanger and an integrated modulating boiler control with high limit and low water cut-off. The UB95M-200 provides domestic hot water priority, and a boiler temperature reset is designed to increase efficiency by lowering the supply water temperature based on the outdoor air temperature. An LED display and self-diagnostic features help monitor the unit, and a swing-out control panel allows for easy servicing.
I love this boiler. The only bad thing that happened was a mouse went into the air intake and then into the blower motor, install a screen on the concentric vent.

Recently moved into a new house and within six months we have had technicians come out to work on this unit twice. The most recent repair led to the replacement of a bad board, a bad fuse and finally the circulator pump. The total spend on repairs has exceeded $2,500.
"Terrible product! Terrible company!"
I would not recommend this boiler. The computer controls are very sensitive to line voltage as well as outages. Even with an isolation transformer this boiler would still 'freeze up' and have to be manually reset. Company does not stand by its warranties…overpriced and under performs. Extremely disappointing. My very knowledgeable heating contractor will not install these anymore after our experiences. Wrote to the president of ECR, the parent company, and never got a response.
"Boiler is a Lemon"
The Utica Boiler was purchased and installed in 2007 and has never worked properly. Lately over the past year three different circuit boards have been replaced, the heat valve and hot water valve have been replaced and it goes on. This boiler is very unreliable..it has broken down numerous times. Most recently we came home from the Thanksgiving holiday and the temperature in our home was 51 degrees. Our propane provider is very frustrated because every time they call Utica Tech Support, they receive conflicting information. Most recently we have been told that the wrong parts have been sent and now the boiler has mis- matched parts and will not fire up to give heat and hot water. I would never recommend this brand of Boiler to anyone.

"Nothing but problems."
Purchased a ub95m-200 boiler Aug. 2008 for its high efficiency. Installed in my new home in Northern nh. Unit locked out because the line voltage unit kept malfunctioning. After that the modulating blower kept running and locking the boiler out. Both my plumbers told me I should never have installed this type of unit as the see nothing but problems but I wanted the high efficiency. I should have listened to them. Instead of making any more repairs or service calls I am going to replace unit with an old reliable recommended by the plumber. Stay away from the Dunkirk/Utica Modulating condensing boilers and buy the slightly less efficient mechanical boilers.
