We have a 5 yr old Lochinvar Efficiency+ natural gas boiler that has been nothing but problems. (mostly from the improper piping job). It is a 300K BTU boiler that seems to be oversized for our home (app 6500 sf of living space built in 2000). (It short-cycles, etc)
In the past, I have thought about replacing it with a unit that would be a condensing/modulating boiler like the Weil-McLain Ultra, but I thought the payback period would be too long.
Now with natural gas prices being so high, I'm wonderring if the scales are now tipped toward replacing it with one of these units.
What do you think?
I figure the caost would be about $10K with labor. Our worst heating month last winter was about $700 last January.
We live in northern CT. Thanks.
