I live in southern New England in a small cottage (~1000 sq ft) heated by an oil fired boiler which is probably at least 30 years old.
The house also serviced by natural gas for the kitchen stove and clothes dryer.
I am considering a supplemental heat source to take the edge off the oil bill, I saw this furnace on the Lowes website and wonder if it a viable option for taking over a good portion of the heating function of my house.
Question # 2: Can an oil boiler be modified/upgraded to be made more efficient?
I am trying to avoid a big overhaul of my heating system as I plan to sell the house in the next 6-7 years and the house in not located in the best part of town.
Any advice most welcome:)
