My oil guy suggested I get a Beckett oil burner for my Bock Hot Water
heater. However, I read that Reillo's burn cleaner and are better.
When I asked him about a Reillo he said he could do it but it was
another $100.00. I was wondering if the Reillo is still better than
the newer Beckets heads and is it worth an extra 100.00 to go with the
Thanks in advance.
We install Riellos on most everything we put in. Great burner. Very
dependable. And different from a Beckett. If your tech is
comfortable servicing Riellos, I'd go with that. If he's not, stick
with a Beckett.
Make sure to get additional filtration at your burner. You can't go
wrong with a 10 micron spin on like a Garber with a vacuum gauge.
You probably won't save enough to mention. The Riello is more
reliable IMO. Enough so that I have to grab the repair manual when we
get a no heat call on one. I don't have to do that with a Beckett.
Don't forget the filtration. That's more important than the burner.
Thanks again. The Reillo sounds good. I was also just on the Beckett
website. They have a new residental burner head called the NX. It
even comes with a sound cover and has advanced air tube technology.
