I want to install a furnace but know nothing about types.

My home is presently heated by one wood stove. House is homemade and wiring is sparse, Natural Gas is not available and will not be available in forseeable future. My home is small - more than 900 sq feet but less than 2000. No ductwork in house now and no room for ductwork. Summers here are never hotter than 85 degrees and then only for a day or so. Winter is moderate with less than 1 month of ice/snow. But rains over 150 inches each year. Any help will be apprectiated about what type to buy.

I live in town with only stoplight for 165 miles so no furnace companies around or willing to come out to just advise and estimate. Thanks for any advice.

I went to link - thanks - Sorry to be so dumb but it looks like a space heater without the electric plug - Do I put one in each area and fill with diesel - from a gas can or do I need a tank and pipes ? Either way looks like the answer for me - thank you.

By the way - you overestimate my town - no truck stops here - not even a McDonald's. But the log trucks use diesel and we have a diesel pump at gas station.

I finally finished reviewing all the info on the link you provided. A site called al's heating was a godsend. Thank you very much - Now I know I want the om-22 - perfect for me - and now I can seek out tanks etc. with a modicum of intelligence.

Thank you very much.
