Our home has a older Utica steam boiler that seems to be leaking (lots of white "smoke" coming out the chimney and we are adding water daily) so I am pretty sure I am in the market for a replacement unit.
Based on what I've read about efficiency of steam units, I don't think I'll be seeing any energy tax credit money -- but I would like to get a unit that is as efficient as possible. I'd like suggestions so that I can locate a contractor who works with that equipment -- rather than being told that (insert the name of the brand I specialize in) is the best.
Any suggestions as to specific features to look for (is external combustion air a significant factor in an old house?), etc, kind of boiler (aluminum, stainless steel, other), and in particular, solid, reasonably priced brands/models that would be appropriate for a resigdential gas installation for a home with eight radiators (4 downstairs and 4 upstairs) in suburban New Joisey.
Thank you in advance for any helpful suggestions.
