BOILER HELP (making decision)


Hello,

I am new to this forum, I see that there are lots of helpful information posted. I am hoping that someone can advice me correctly.
Here is my issue:

I have a current Pensotti R-4 boiler that I am looking to get replaced because of age, plus I had problems with the low water sensor (there was no water in the boiler). The repair tech that came out said that I needed a new guage, new low water vavle, and possibly a new burner.

I started getting estimates from various companies: The prices range from $4900 to about $6500.

The current setup is, I have in-direct hot water with 2 zones. I am being quoted either a Peerless WBV-03, a Burnham MPO 115 and a burnham mpoiq-84.

My question is, which is the better boiler, what is the difference between the two, should I replace the hot water tank the same or can it wait, and finally around what price range should I be looking at just to replace a 2 zone, in-direct hot water boiler?

Any help would be GREAT!!! I am totally LOST!!!

Seems everyone contractor around is only quoting a burnham or peerless...I have another contractor coming tomorrow.

Can't do pricing here. Get several quotes. If it was me I would go with the Buderus Logano BE series. It's 91% efficient without condensing so you can vent it into your chimney. It is so quiet you can't hear it run and it qualifies for the tax credit.
