        Best Boiler on the Market

              Comments about 74,000 BTU Output Cast Iron Oil Boiler - Chimney Vent:

              I installed a Buderus G115 with a Riello 40-F3 in my 5000 sf house 17 years ago. I live in Alaska and my boiler has over 31,000 hours on it. I clean the boiler and replace the nozzle once a year. I have never even had a boiler technician look at it. Absolutely runs like a champ with minimal maintenance. Would not consider another brand.

                    Comments about 74,000 BTU Output Cast Iron Oil Boiler - Chimney Vent:

                    In October 2009 I installed the Buderous G115-3 74,000 BTU boiler on top of a Buderus L160 indirect fired domestic hot water heater. I also purchased the Logamatic 2107 controller with outdoor temp sensor. This setup replaced an old 136,000 BTU Atlas boiler with internal DHW coil. So more than 2 years later all I can say is that this is a fantastic combo that is very efficient and provides lots of hot water too. The Logamatic controller took awhile to tweak (with helpful telephone instructions from Buderous customer service) and now provides perfect setback based on our lifestyle and outdoor temperature. I have averaged better than 20% fuel savings over the last 2 years and we never run out of hot water like the old system. I can clean the hemispherical combustion chamber myself (It still isn't sooty after 2 heating seasons!) and it will never need a liner or target replacement like other boilers. This thing burns CLEAN. The only down side is the chosen AFG burner is a lot noisier than the old AF burner we had before. The German Buderus products are so well made I do not understand why anyone would want a Weil McLain or similar when you can have a MUCH higher quality Buderus for virtually the same price. If you appreciate great engineering and use of latest marerials and technology, you will really like the Buderous stuff.

                          Great boiler but beware it does not heat your hot water, only the heating system.

                                What's to say... Its small and quiet. After a few seasons of heating I might have a more complete opinion...

                                    This boiler would be able to provide approximately 41 BTUs per square foot in an 1,800 square foot house. This could be a bit low for for a house as old as yours. We would recommend an on-site heat loss analysis.

                                    It is not. To heat an application this large you will need around 118,000 BTU.
