New House Coal boiler????
I am i Pa. and looking for answers on heating. House is Apprx 3,200 ft/2 looking into coal/wood with a back up. was looking into the combination units and this is why i have 2 chimneys. 1 for comb. unit and one for my fireplace. now my heating contractor said he pulled out a wood coal boiler and would install it for apprx $4,000 and then put in a electric backup?? I was planning on oil back up but I am on planning using mostly wood and coal so i am unsure if the back up is even a big deal?? Any hints would be greatly appreciated?????? Is $4000 for a used boiler installed a good price? The combination unit i was looking at was $6000 not installed but is only recomended for hard coal??
