(snip) Pretty straightforward I think. Well question 1 is a yes or no with side bars. lol, but not too bad. It's not that I don't want to read the books...okay I just don't want to read the books. if I can't get the help here, I'll probably just hire someone to do it.
DUDE, you need to chill a bit !!!!!! The answers are already here and if not they will be answered. YOU have to do a little work on your own. Sorry but that is the way this forum operates. I seem to remember you having an issue with the oil burner back in January. And at that time you were advised to have a little patience.......
The advise you were given by one of the greatest figments of the internet (Sting) was right on. IF YOU do a little research by reading those books, or at least skimming through them or searching the archives here, YOU will have a better understanding of how your heating system works now and how it will work in the future. As was mentioned there are all kinds of ways to hook up a coal unit along side an oil burner and share the piping system through out the house. Some are more efficient than others. But most will work to some degree. If you understand the basic principles, you will be able to make changes to make your system perform the way you want it to.
If I have misunderstood your post I apologize.
