Condensing Oil burners... good or not so good, Kerr versus Adams and others......
Hello, new to here and rebuilding a lake house in Lake Hopatcong, NJ. I am researching efficient oil burners for our proposed add a level 1600 sq. ft. home. Some of my HVAC contractors are trying to steer me away from condensing oil fired forced air furnaces. Some say 85-86% efficiency is max for oil. I read 92-95%. Where do I go from here? I am trying to google my life away about this subject and I'm getting mixed answers. One thing I do know is contractors who have NOT installed, or have not DIRECT experience with what I want should not comment on the subject. I feel the ones I talked to are just trying to sell me what units they have agreement with, or what ones they just like to install... Sorta like a die hard Chevy man not going to drive a Ford....you know what I mean??
