Oil heat summer winter hookup, install hot water heater or replace furnace?
Summer-winter hook up
I wonder if I can get a tax write off just for putting in the hot water heater as opposed to the entire burner. My coil is probably failing. Too bad the heating system is new, if it wasn't and gas was available, I would suggest converting it to gas.
If I ended up getting a new boiler, would I ever need a separate hot water heater, or are new boilers that much better that they can handle the hot water needs of a normal house? Originally Posted by beenthere.

And send all that heat you paid for up the chimney. What would make a coil in a newer furnace better than the one in my older furnace?
Depends on the costs of electric vs. Many people consider hot water baseboard heat to be an excellent heat source, because it's very efficient and uniform. The problem you may have with having a oil tank is where it is located. Thank you for reporting this comment. When we replace your boiler, we will replace your summer winter hookup with an indirect system or, if you choose, we can install a boiler and a cheaper electric hot water heater.
My DD bought a house that had oil heat. Greetings from the Santa Cruz Mountains Repairs in a travel trailer.
I will not have this company do the work, I have some guys I trust not to rip me off, but I wanted to get opinions on my options. Not trying to stray too far from the main topic, but here is a great link, if interested, regarding demand water heating.
Switch to Threaded Mode. The tank was underground and they required the seller to remove the tank and do any EPA clean up, then DD paid for the gas line and new boiler. It may be time to replace that old boiler with a new high efficiency boiler.
