AC Install with Heat Pump and remove oil fired boiler?
I'm doing a gut renovation of a circa 1840 colonial in the Hudson Valley, NY. House has a oil fired hot water system, but the radiators are in the way for the most part and have been removed. The plan was to put in radiant heat, but getting outrageous quotes to install...
I'm thinking of just adding a heat pump to the AC system I'm putting in and losing the boiler system altogether, and wanted to get some other opinions. If I do this, do I need 2 separate condensers if I were to do a zone for each floor? Or will the 3 ton until that the installer spec'd work?
Electricity averaged 0.0635/KWH last year if that is helpful info.
Many thanks, Mike
