“We are a service, repair and installation company.  I called the number your
site provides for Burnham Corporation, but when I spoke with the woman there,
she redirected me to USA Boiler at 888-432-8887, ext 8400. I was able to get
the age of the unit listed above,but didn’t use the extension as their
automated system gave me directions to an associate.
Just thought you would like to know to update Burnham’s residential boiler
age contact information!  Love your site, use it almost daily”
Thanks Paul for the great information and your continued use and support of this site.
