No need for one, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be an economical solution.
If you can handle installing a boiler yourself, you can probably install a refurbished stoker boiler and water to air heat exchanger in your existing furnace for about the same $$ as a new furnace. It all depends what you want to do...if cheap & plentiful domestic hot water is part of the equation, a boiler is worth considering. If you don't care about DHW, a furnace is a great way to go.
