Are you sure the New Kaa4 comes w/ secondary fuel? The old discontinued one did...better check for on the new ones.

I checked. The Kaa-4-1 has a oil burner option. $ 700.00

I have a KA-6 with the oil back up. I'm not using the oil burner in the KA -6. I'm using my existing boiler for DHW in the summer. Why maintain temp of 55 gals of water in the summer for DHW. I made a mistake buying it with the oil option. I have a new back up for my oil boiler. :-)
This is going on my fifth year and this boiler may not look fancy but it is very simple to operate. No control boards to go bad, just two blowers motors, a gear box, a timer, and a honeywell aquastat. KISS!
I never used the oil option so I can't comment on that.
