I have many concerns with choosing the correct replacement boiler for my home. I currently have a Wel-Mclain, a real old one. It looks like the people who owned the house before me might have run it dry a few times. The sides are rusted out and it is in bad shape. My local technician sized the boiler replacement based on the radiator sizes and he has come up with a 5 section. (500-550 sq. ft. steam) My technician is recomending a Williamson (OSB). He said that it was the same thing as a Wel-Mclain and it would save me some money. I looked at the ratings for both boilers and the Wel-Mclain is boasting a 83.9 efficincy vs the Williamsons 81.4. Which one should I choose? Are Wel-Mclain's that much better than the Williamson's. Can some one help me with the pros and cons of each? Thank You.
