Boiler Buddy Info

Hello,

Boiler Buddy now has reps in New England and refuses to sell direct to New Hampshire.
They directed me to Emerson Swan in MA.
Emerson Swan dirrected me to local plumbing supply companies here in NH.
One was in the next town over.
Helpful folks, Granite Group.
Of course the guys at the desk never heard of Boiler Buddy.
However they called Emerson Swan and got results quickly.
BB-30 basic 30 gallon bufffer cost is $793.00
BB-50-G Larger 50 gallon with 3 sensor wells, Nice set-up
Cost $1086.

Odered the 50.

Onwards,
Peter

I wonder why new gadgets keep popping up for residential hot-water boilers - more so than for forced-air furnaces or central air conditioning units? In the Midwest, at least, new houses with hot-water heat, in round numbers, is zero (I am the exception). My sense is that outside the Northeast, the number of residential heating boilers drop off rather rapidly. Old houses with boilers probably burn down or are demolished much faster than any new houses are built with boilers.

Could be the local are making a few bucks.
Lotta hands in the food chain.
Not much other options if you what a boiler budddy.
I like the piping arragement and size.
Especially the three thermostat wells.
I'm sure if i was a plumber that did a good business with them, i could hammer a lower price.
If i have any plumbers i know try it, they'll take a bit too and i'll probably end up in the same place.
