We're about to replace our 100-year-old coal-converted-to-gas boiler that powers our steam heat with a new boiler, since it failed a number of times this winter when it was -2F outside. We talked to two plumbers, each of whom recommended a different ignition system (standing pilot or electric ignition). I know electric ignition is more fuel-efficient, but are there any downsides to it at all (e.g. fails more often than pilot)? Also, with a pilot, if the pilot should go out, will the pilot gas continue to flow (as in a kitchen gas stove)? Thanks in advance for your advice.
