I am probably looking at the 175, if not the 250 unit... Prices I have been quoted are in the $4500 range

I'm looking at exactly the same one for our garage/snowmelt system. What are you planning to heat?

My house, garage and my hot water. My house is radiant floor and I need to replace my boiler. My garage currently has a hanging furnace that I want to replace with a hydronic hanging unit.... and of course my hot water.

My current boiler is corroding to improper set up, It never gets hot enough. The hydronic floor tubing is running at 130 or so.

I have had it and want to get something that will last longer than 12 years.

The Triangle seems to be well liked in my googling, well supported by distributors here in Colorado (George Sanders, which is close to me in Summit County).

I have about 2800 sqft ALL tile, well insulated, with high quality windows.

There apparently is alot of programming that can be taken advantage of, IF your installer knows what they are doing.

From what I can tell its high quality product, Just need to make sure that my contractor knows what they are doing.

We're looking at new boilers right now as well. This same model was recommended by our plumber, but we're not liking the price. I believe it was going to cost around $7000 installed. I'll probably just go with another high end cast iron boiler to save a few grand which I can use to upgrade some windows.

I Highly recommend calling Scott Clark at Hi Valley (http://www.hi-valley.com/). I have no personal interest there, but it is where I'm getting my stuff. Good guy.
