My current Oil boiler is almost dead and I need to replace it pretty soon. I've been looking at the SEI grants and I'm considering a High Efficiency Oil fired Boiler with Heating Controls Upgrade in order to avail of the current grant. I've called over a dozen of the SEI registered contractors and only two called me back and eventually called to the house. One wanted crazy money and had loads of mistakes in his quote. The 2nd contractor's price seemed very reasonable, but he only seems interested in installing a Firebird boiler, although after doing some research I wanted to go with a Grant.
So from your opinion and experience, what's better a Grant or a Firebird, or is there little difference between the two?
Also, can someone recommend a SEI approved contractor for an Oil Boiler w/ Controls Upgrade in the Galway city area?
