The only issue with WM boilers is their use of rubber gaskets between the boiler sections. Some people have had leak problems. Direct venting is OK with gas boilers. But if you had a gas WH, you should still get the flue lined for the one appliance. If you do that, you might as well just stick with the nat draft boiler. There are condensing boilers out there that run at a better efficentcy by running at lower temps. They cost more but can be vented in PVC pipe. If nothing else is using the chimney, you could just run PVC up the chimney to keep any noise or fumes away from windows and doors. Bryant's boilers are made by Dunkirk. Yo might want to look at the Dunkirk Quantum 90, high eff. condensing boiler.
Not too much more money and would use PVC venting that would save much on a re-line.
