Sometimes you can think yourself right into a Blind Alley.....With what you already have in place,and you've been looking at this decision for quite sometime,I feel you've put it to bed. The Leisure Line Boys took time with you on this Thread. It didn't result in an immediate sale for them. They're still here,and so are the Board Members who helped and gave you their advice. Not much of that happens anymore. Enjoy the Warmth,and realize that your investment will pay for itself in time. If you move,you've created options to accommodate that. Nice Job!
You are entirely right, it's just very hard to pull the trigger on an expensive item. But the more I look at the situation it is the absolute best route even with spending the extra money up front. I was actually settled on purchasing a pellet stove for my main floor, but there was to many things that I was unsettled about with that. I would have had to spent another 600+ for a liner and outside air kit to go up my existing Chimney. Another issue was I thrn had no heat in my basement, which would result in nbuying another heating supply for down there. That could easily have me over the 4k mark, and I could have already purchased the boiler at that point. Lastly the price of pellets have risen a good bit, and I assume one day they wouldn't even been worth it anymore. Those factors really put the pellet stove to rest.
The guys from leisure line have been absolutely awesome, and I feel terrible that I wasn't able to purchase the boiler last year, but I had situations come up that I had no control over and the money just wasn't available anymore. Luckily I've been putting money aside this year and I have all my ducks in line.
