I have a 1300 sq ft. single story home with an existing oil furnace. Hot air. Upstate NY.
Any advice is appreciated.
I know this is an older post, but I thought I would weigh in.
I also live in upstate NY and we just installed a newmac cl-86/96C wood/oil combo. Paid $3800 for the furnace. We have yet to light a fire (just installed yesterday) but the oil burner is better than the furnace we had. its a really beefy unit, and a guy I know that has been doing hvac for 30 years says in his early days installed a ton of newmac furnaces and still services the same ones now.
just my 2 cents!
