Thank heavens for duct tape because it’s holding up the ancient Buderus furnace in the utility room.
Looks aside, it runs like a champ. We have it cleaned and serviced yearly, every year expecting to be told We regret to inform you…. but happily it keeps on ticking.
The question becomes, as we renovate and add on to that end of the house, upgrade hot water tank system and improve the Culligan system, does it makes sense to visit the options for heat?
Either get a cleaner more efficient oil burner or go the route the other wing of the house went and get a propane run system???
The propane heat is darn good but we are cheap bastards and don’t turn the thermostat up much. We’ve had the new system for two years now and have only filled the 230 gal tank once a year. Pretty good, yes??
We don’t have natural gas in Bedford so the gas would have to be propane.
I can’t decide. Now is the only time to consider changing since the upstairs and much of the house downstairs would get added on to or redone. Now or never.
