Advice on new furnace

PostBy: CRH On: Sun Jun 29, 2014 11:25 am

Recently moved to a new to us home with oil forced air heat. We had a Reading Sesquhana in our old house (10 years old). Our first fuel oil bill was more than was spent on coal to heat the old house all winter. The two local dealers have pushed me to a Koker. There are thing I like about the Hitzer 710. No one has tried to sell me a Reading. I found this site and have discovered the LL AK110. Now I really am not sure what to buy. I have not found a LL dealer yet to call about price and availability. Would anyone have a idea on price? I have been quoted 2850 for the Hitzer, 3250 for the Koker. I don't mind paying for quality product. I will also have to install a second chimney for the coal as my oil and propane hot water are in the existing block chimney. I had bad luck with a power vent at the old house. Thanks for the help. I am in Wyoming county New York if anyone knows a LL dealer in the area.

Sorry to have posted the same questions twice. I thought the first post got lost in space as it didn't show up for a while

Are you fairly handy and would be doing some of the install yourself? Makes a difference on the type of equipment recommended by some of us. If you had a boiler with a water to air exchanger, you could duct mount it, have your domestic hot water for free, put the coal boiler into the existing chimney, and powervent the oil unit. it would make a clean install, and be very efficient. One thought to consider. If you are going to be long term owners, it would be a short payback.

Wow Dave, I really like that design.. The pipes add significant surface area for heat exchange. I've considered running heat exchange pipes thru my Clayton similar to that. The square opening is where the burn plate goes? Is the circular hole on the bottom left where the exhaust vents out?

Yes it can be vented either side. There are openings both sides. 1 gets a flue outlet the other gets a cover plate.

That design is what has made me rethink what to buy. The house is a raised ranch with a total of 1800 sq feet including the basement. It was built in 1976. walls are only 4in but there is 18 or so in the attic. All windows on west side are new double pane. Will be replacing all entry doors this summer. Dave can you get me a price on the 110 and the filter box? I can be in Montrose in 3 hrs. Have a friend who lives in that area.
