  • Copper tube boiler manufacturers ?

    Any of you heating guys know of other manufacturers of copper tube boilers (<=200K BTU) besides Lochinvar and Bradford White (Laars I think)? I have only ever installed cast iron boilers, but I had a customer ask about copper boilers implying that they were less expensive. The quotes I have gotten on Lochinvar and Bradford White are as much or more expensive than Peerless, Burnham or Weil-Mclain cast iron units.

      beware that copper tube are maintenance intensive if they have flow or flue issues. they are more expensive to fix, are not more reliable, and are no more efficient than a cast iron boiler. if the customer wants an efficient durable boiler quote a high efficient stainless steel exchanger unit.
