We will need to replace the oil boiler for a hydronic baseboard. Throwing around ideas of geo-thermal, propane boiler, and high efficiency heat pumps. Would like to include A/C if we can, using the high velocity type of system for the air. Comments on the different systems, and what would you put in a 200 year old house, brick, no natural gas available. Tired of the oil fill-ups, and exhaust (direct vent) smell, and just the dirtiness of oil itself. Like the hydronic baseboard for the heat portion, so would like to use that if we can get the water moving (different post on that).
Thanks for any ideas = pro and con, as well as manufacturers and what installation should cost.
