I'm also looking at a "direct vent" option using a Riello burner as a way to get rid of the power vent I have now. No chimney is available. I'd welcome replies from anyone who has installed a direct vent oil system in the past few years.

I'm in Gilford. Any response it welcome.

I had a buddy of mine replace my boiler about 4 years ago. He told me to stay away from Burnham. He said they have so many more issues than many of the others. He also told me to go with a Carlin burner over a Becket. I took his advice and have had no issues but I have a chimney not a power vent.
I went with an HB Smith boiler because I needed a side clean out due to space constraints, it's in a crawl space.
I wish I could help you out on a contractor. I get my oil from Stafford Oil and I know they install boilers.
