I'm in the market to upgrade an old boiler and hot water heater. I had a couple questions:
1) Does it make more sense to go with something traditional like a Weil McLane CGI-8 80+ efficiency boiler or to try one of the high-efficiency boilers like the Peerless Pinnacle or MZ Boiler? Are the high-efficieny boilers truly only 10% better or are there incidental factors that might make them even better, such as the time it takes to reach peak efficiency, etc? Are high-efficiency boilers as robust as the others?
2) Since I'm planning to use an indirect heated hot water tank, does that impact the boiler decision? (I live in RI where the boiler would normally only run from October through April).
Thanks for any insights,
