    You can make a boiler system as expensive and as complicated as you want. But more or less all the boilers are two steel boxes stacked on top of each other with a ceramic nozzle in between and a fan to blow some air.

    When I see some of the numbers people pay to put in an insert or woodstove (5k+) boilers seem like a good investment. And you get even heat throughout the house.

    Every industry is going to have its share of shysters, hucksters and upheaval. That's the free market. The gassification boiler market is not immune.

    To be a realtor you need a license.To sell used cars not sure.I would say the CL poster is more like a broker.

    My statement was a response to your statement that appeared to be your final decision. I didn't realize you wanted someone to talk you out of it.

    Thanks for all the info guys. A boiler is a very large purchase and saving a 20% on the initial cost is soon lost when you realize you have no warrranty or dealer support.

    Fossil is mature in my book. Heat pumps are mature in my book. I can purchase a system and basically not worry that that system will no longer be supported because the importer went belly up for one reason or another. When I was talking mature I was talking about supply chain and so forth not technology.
    Also I came here to do my due diligence and that told me wait a few more years till the industry works through some things . It is for the very fact that I am risk averse that I said not now. Honestly the industry seems far more mature in Europe to our loss.

    It would be tempting if I was closer. Adding 900 miles one way and $500 in fuel sways the equation a bit.
