First time home owner – furnace/hot water issue


Thank you Docwhitely. I think thats what we will ultimately have to do as well. It's just getting the dough to do that so we will have to figure something out to do in the meantime but thank you. I guess we do have a boiler seeing how we have water running through our baseboards and not forced air.

Yes what you hove is a Summer winter hook up that is designed to heat the water you use at the same time as you heat your house. When they were created they were a good idea but, as times change and oil prices went up and people started to shower more often.... well they were not able to stand the test of time. In fact the only place I still install them is in Laundry mats with a Large storage tank. An Electric water heater will typically be your best option depending on if your wiring is capable of supporting the water Heater.... good Luck
