On efficiency, this one

Series WBV/WV™Boiler Features
■ Up to 87.5% AFUE—ENERGY STARŽEfficient*!

is slightly better so your fuel cost/year will be slightly less. After many years the second choice will be better.

With what you know so far, what's your choice?

If you need more info and interpretation of that info, what info and interpretation would that be?

I just have that feeling that I will learn a lot in this thread.

I am leaning towards the Peerless for I know a few people that have them and they have not had any trouble with them. As for the burner I think I am going with a beckett burner for that's the type of burner I have now on my Well Mclain. It really is a tough decision. My old boiler lasted 30
years . I am going to keep digging and researching the Peerless any thoughts...

With things being designed by computer nowadays the new stuff will probably last one month past warranty. Human designers are less certain of themselves so they put in a lot of safety factors.

My furnace is from '82 but I have kept it going because I don't want new, computer-controlled hardware because I will not be able to repair it.

From $500 to $4600 for a Beckett, a 9:1 ratio. . .good Gawd!

I wish my old boiler still worked 30 years no problems. I am really disapointed that more people have not chimed in with their opinions, thank you for your replys. On the burnham pv8h3 or Peeress wbv4
and also the Carlin or Beckett burner.
