So here is the quote I just received for $16210. Does that number make sense?

combination pressure temperature gauge, high limit pressure troll, low water cut off, aquastat, Hartford loop,

manual feed valve.

Install 1-coil in boiler and 1- Superstor aquabooster SSU80-CB complete with circulator, relay, relief valve,

aquastat, hot and cold shut offs, check valve. Tank has a 10 year manufacturers warranty.

All electrical at boiler. All headers will be black pipe. All water pipe will be copper. Flush returns.

What is your location?

I am not a boiler expert and this forum is probably not the best location for your question.

If this is a conversion only, price seems over the top.

Have you been quoted on a complete new gas boiler installation?

You might try to post your question in these other forums.
