    We had a Weil-Mclean boiler combined with an Amtrol hot water heater installed in our home 5 years ago. We are extremely happy with its operation and its positive affect on our heating costs

    I have been installing and servicing Weil McLain boilers both residential and commercial for 40 years and know that they are the best. If anyone is having a problem with one, it is probably not installed properly. This is the cause of most complaints. The Ultra boiler is an beautiful piece of equipment. I have sold and installed many and have never had one complaint, only praise about how quiet and efficient they are. The contractors installing these high tech boilers that are out there today, need to read the instructions. If they follow the manufacturers instructions, they won’t have a problem. We have rectified many systems that have been installed by others or homeowners that didn’t bother to read the instructions.
    Weil McLain is made in my country, the U.S.A. and it is the only boiler that I sell.
