    Make the \"TRANSITIONS\" !

    As far as furnasties go, you just can't beat Thermopride. They will outlive the Heils, as long as they are installed correctly...everytime.

    I haven't worked on much warm air stuff as of late, but I do remember that the Thermopride units are above and beyond (quality wise) almost anything out there.Their new control systems....I ain't so sure about as lots has changed in the last few years, but they must have variable speed fans available by now. I'd be surprised if they don't, PLUS the 2 stage Riello burners available for the oil fired units!

    As much as it hurts...I bet they will pay for themselves FASTER than any of the other choices out there. Quality Vs. what fits....which would YOU pick? JMHO. Chris

    i Know what you are saying.....

    Trust me on this...my buddies helped aid some of the decisions on these developments so i definitely catch your drift...

    as it is dialing into the cooler temps at night i am looking to make these soirees into my tin knocking days as painless as possible..:)

    i may go another direction with lashing up boilers instead..it will depend on just how many times i want to drag out my superman shirt...i would personally like to leave it at the cleaners than bring it home at the momment *~/:) great advise though :) Ty

    Olsen Furnaces


    I would like to invite you to look at ECR International's Olsen line of oil furnaces. We have extensive experience in Northern applications as we are widely used in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut territiries in Canada.

    I believe Johnstone Supply can get them for you, if they are not in stock.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at our technical services department. 8 - 5 EST at 888-270-8324

    thermopride over heil--

    i would take a thermopride over a heil,but i would take an olsen over a heil too. however, the thermopride is not the end- all furnace that all the euroscrap boiler fans keep raving about. that would be a williamson centennial. 10 gauge heat exchanger vs t.p's 14 gauge, & no copper spray paint either. the centennial is easier to service too.
