After purchasing a 45+ year-old house, the ugly duckling on the block, my wife and I are looking to replace the original boiler with a more modern and efficient model. The house is a Cape Cod (2 rooms in a finished attic and 2 on the ground floor , 1.5 bath with a full finished basement). Eventually, we want to put a shed dormer on the back of the house to expand the upstairs rooms and include a new bath. Unfortunately, I don't know:
1. what questions to ask when evaluating a heating contractor 2. What "the good brands" are of boilers 3. What I should compare when looking for a boiler 4. When the best time is to buy a boiler. Are there "end of year" or "pre-season" sales or something?
Any wisdom shared would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
