: You have a tough situation. Residential cast-iron boiler castings are often created by the same casting company; so although they have different names from different companies, they may be the same boiler with different controls and sheetmetal.
: Another point that can be made is that like automobiles today, the machines are generally all good. Boilers are much simpler than cars and have less moving parts.
: In summation, you really don't need to worry about getting a 'good' boiler. They are all good. They generally all carry a 10-year exchanger warrantee and as long as they don't leak, the only thing to go wrong is the burner- which almost nerver does, and the controls - which are the cause of most complaints.
: After 40 years in the business, I have never heard complaints about the names you mention.
