Using a boiler to heat hot water coils in hydro-air systems makes sense. Each floor can be separately controlled and ductwork doesn't have to disrupt the house as much as furnace air. You can even have baseboard or radiant floor heat while the cooling for a few months is done from ductwork.
This gives the opportunity to make hot water at 1/3 the cost and to have future options like baseboard or radiant heating in comfort areas and even melt snow from driveways and walks.
Buderus is an excellent heater; but as others last for decades, it is a matter of preferences.
