I’m thinking about ditching my old oil burner for a new high efficiency natural gas furnace. Oughta pay for itself by the time we sell and move out, and add value to the place so we can sell it for more than if it still had the old furnace. Profit is a good thing right?
I’ve got a call in at Capital Heating right now. Have any of you used anyone else?
Want to buy my oil furnace and tank to keep your garage/shop warm?
Interested in the price capital heating gives you. Also btu and % efficiency.
While you will save money buying it yourself who do you call for warranty work? A contractor will not warranty a unit he did not buy. Better to go threw a heating guy who can just go back to his supply house to get warrantied parts.
I make too much money to qualify for most of the programs, but it looks like I may be able to get up to a 4% interest rate reduction if I finance through an approved lender and have the work done by an approved contractor. :cjerk:
Still looking though. I know there are tax credits somewhere…
Something to think about, if you don’t have A/C and plain on installing it in the future now is the time to have them install the coil when they do the furnace. The coil itself is fairly cheap and since it sits on top of the furnace, no extra cost on labor.
lol Nikuk thanks for reinforcing that this is a good decision. A lot of smart people don’t know what oil furnaces are and thus run away when they are house hunting.
Yep, it’s just a forced air furnace that burns oil instead of natural gas. It heats my ~1680 (iirc) square foot house nicely.
FYI, National Fuel will install up to a 100 foot line to the house for free. I don’t have a gas line to my house, so the gas company has to dig a trench and run one. My house is only maybe 60’ from the road so that part should be free.
