Viessmann Gas 200-60 conversion from oil
First post here so hi!
Ok so the story is I buy a 3,200 sq foot home in New England with oil. Previous owner spends $5700 per year on oil.
The oil is a 1995 unit. I've just been using it for hot water and wanted to see a few months use to determine if it's a good investment to switch over to gas or geothermal.
After a few months it's costing $100 per month just for hot water alone for 2 people, which is outrageous as we are not heavy on HW. Previous gas bills for cooking and HW in an apartment was $25-40/month for the same period in previous place.
Geothermal appears to be costing ....a lot..., doesn't appear to be a good investment.
So gas it seems, as I also want it for cooking. We have gas available on the street. So I'm planning for next April.
I want a good system that is very neat, well engineered and extremely efficient and reliable and to last a long time.
I got a quote for the Viessmann 200-60. I would like to get it with the outdoor reset and sensor and linked to my phone.
Radiators are the old forced hot water cast irons. Hot water storage is a superstor double SS lined relatively new. Despite this the oil per month is $100 for HW only. Plumber believes it was set up incorrectly by the oil company that installed it to burn more oil.
Replumb existing oil boiler the way it should have been set up originally. Costs 1/5th of oil to gas conversion
Install gas conversion with a Viessmann 200-60.
Are Viessmann as good as they cost?
How close to the electric panel can a gas boiler be placed?
