Well, good for them. the Buderus dealer thinks your house is either totally uninsulated or it is a well-insulated 6000 square-feet house. The others did a little better at thinking the house is built in the 60's with 2-inches of insulation in the walls and 4 inches in the ceiling, or it is a house built to 1990's insulation standards of 6000 square feet.
They are completely guessing, or actually looked at the house and know it is poorly-insulated; although they never told you that you can save BIG BUCKS by adding insulation at little cost and be saving 1/3 or more of the fuel money for decades after. However, they CAN sell you an oversized boiler fo a good profit; just the way that makes suppliers and contractors VERY happy.
Like the Pharoah's convincing people he has a god in a box in the temple, and the mystery-writers convincing that nobody knows how Stonehenge works; marketers can increase income for all by keeping ignorance in the general population.
An antidote to stupid is to use the FREE heat estimate program at:
for a month.
Gee, if they find out they can actually have a computer program that tells the RIGHT size boiler for $4 a month, it might be harder to sell an OVERSIZED energy-wasting boiler without adding insulation.
