$1,000 was just to purchase the furnace... Boiler terminology probably got mixed up...

If you can get a gas boiler for $1000 you should make the investment. Can you do this work yourself?

If you are handy at soldering copper pipe, I would try and do it myself. Of course, you will also need some pieces/parts from your local plumbing supply shop like some elbows and some sections of pipe so that you can join the existing pipes to the new boiler. It looks much easier to install a boiler than a ducted furnace.

I am with the others here too...Install an electric water heater. If you are worried about the insert leaking after it's de-pressurized, just cap ONE end of the hot-water insert with a faucet, and leave the other side connected to the water line. There will still be water in it at line pressure. Of course, if you get a new boiler, you can simply order it without a hot-water insert and instead, go get you an electric water heater

The OP just said that the $1,000 was for a furnace NOT a boiler so would require all new duct work as well.

My boiler started leaking..... There is water coming out from under it not sure where exactly. I can't figure out how to get the jacket off to take a look. Called my oil guy to come and take a look. The maybe I will be converting sooner then anticipated.
