Hello questseeker.

Pretty quiet here right now that it is summer here in the US.  Unfortunately I have no experience as to which one is best.  Maybe someone else will chime in.

Best of luck in your search for a boiler.

questseeker,  Is your current boiler leaking? Have you had a peek on the wet side through an unscrewed fitting? If your boiler is not leaking, you do not need a new boiler! The boiler guys love to sell new equipment. If it is summer where you live you have time on your side! Take a deep breath an check all of your options before you take the new boiler plunge. You still have your money and a warm summer working for you. - diesels
