Will be buying a new heating system this summer and I need some advice. Our heat is forced hot water fuled by oil. At one point the hot water heater was separate, but somewhere along the way someone tied the water heater into the heating system (presumably so it would use less electricity). Anyway, here is what we are being offered, and I would appreciate any input on either system because I have no idea what the oil company is talking about:
1) Peerless Boiler with Beckett Burner and Tankless Coil
2) Biasi Boiler with Riello Oil Burner and 41 Gallon Tank
Again, I have no idea what each really represents. The only difference I can see is cost, the one with the 41 gallon tank costs about $1000 more. Right now we have two bathrooms (will possibly have three if and when we get the attached studo apt. renovated and rented) and teenage daughters (two live wtih us and two visit but may coming to live wtih us too). Also have dishwasher and washing machine to think about. Any enlightenment and input would be appreciated. Thanks!
