Which oil burner is best for me?
I am replacing a very old boiler. I have the nice old radiator heating throughout. I currently occupy two floors, and may possibly expand to a 3rd floor in the future. My house is about 2200 square feet, I believe.
It was recommended that I buy a Vitorond 100 CR1-50 172 MBH C.I. Sectional Boiler Viessmann VR10059..... with a Viessmann Riello 40FS Oil burner VR1-33 40 50 Chilmney Vent 7311317.
They said that this is comparable to the boiler I have now (which they said was probably purchased before many of the windows were replaced with more efficient ones.) and that this would heat the entire house including the top floor if I decided to make it into living space.
Is this boiler going to be appropriate in case I do expand to another floor?
Also, I have a friend who has installed and worked on boilers and furnaces while working for schools and who will be retiring soon to work with an energy company installing boilers and furnaces. .Since he is not employed with the energy company right now and since he does not currently have is own business, but does this on the side (without insurance) and comes highly recommended, could his installation of the boiler(and new inside oil tank) invalidate my home insurance?
Sorry I have so many questions, but I have no idea where to start.
