I see they are made by US Boiler which is the company that makes Burnham. Proselect is a private label sold by Ferguson.

I would have to believe that Force is simply a re-labled Burnham. You would have to check on warranty.

Ten years isn't much warranty on a boiler. What is the model?

Gas or oil fired? 96,000 sounds like a lot of heat. Are you sure you need that much boiler?

If it is a water boiler it used to have a limited Lifetime warranty prorated after 10 years and a steam boiler was 10 years.
