I have a center hall colonial brick house (by Syracuse, N.Y.) heated by a "National" gas water boiler circa 1950 that I would like to replace. The side plate says 290,000btu/hr input with 232,000 output. The house has recent insulation and replacement window updates. I have had four of our areas most reputable suppliers over for estimates. Each rep went through the entire house and measured out all of the radiators and were quite thorough in their presentation. Three of the estimates are back with the following recommendations:
Company A: "New Yorker" model CG-70B
Heating capacity: MPH-163
Price: $6,900
Company B: "Lennox" model GBW8-210E/S
Heating capacity: 170kBtuh
Price: $5,450
Company C: "Bryant" model M#BW2AAN000140
Heat rating: 37,000 to 299,000BTUH
Price: $3,750
Each company includes programmable thermostat and outdoor temperature reset control and electronic ignition. All things supposedly being equal amoung these guys, I think the price range is nuts. Is the "New Yorker" really worth over three grand more than the "Bryant"? Is the Bryant guy low-balling me with their lowest end product to get the business and if so, am I giving up quality to save money or are all of these of equal quality. Remember, these companies have been here for decades and have good reputations for there service. What do you think? Please help.
