I have a 30 yr. old dry base Utica boiler with a Reillo burner head
(fairly new). I have no idea of its effeciency. The unit runs
great. I live on Long Island in NY with cold winters and am using 180
gallons to heat my basement (a constant 73) and make hot water (Bock
heater and 5 adults). I have a Coal stove that heats my upstairs so
the heat rarely comes on for that part of the house.
I was thinking of replacing the oil fired boiler with a Boderus or
Well-Mclain Ultra, both have 90% effeciency ratings. I wanted to hear
from people who have changed out their old boilers for newer models to
find out if there really is a big savings?
Thanks in advance
