As much as I hate to get rid of an old, simple friend, my 25 yr old
furnace is due for replacement.
There is no natural gas in the future of where I live. Electric is
16-18cents a KWH. I have a propane space heater- but want to stick
with oil for heat.
The gubbmint is offering a tax credit of 30% up to $1500 for an oil
burner that is more than 90% efficient.
As near as I can tell the only ones that fit the bill are the
condensing oil furnaces made by Adams Manufacturing in Ohio. [sold as
Adams, Dornback and Spartan brands]
Any opinions on these? I can only find some old trade magazine
articles on the Adams & no real life reviews. Nor can I find them
for sale anywhere to see if it makes economic sense to go to 95%
efficient, even with the rebate.
I probably head out to the local supplier later this week, but thought
I'd try for a range of opinions first.
