oil furnace: Carrier vs Regal vs Thermo Pride vs Adams

Evelyn16September 1, 2011

I need to replace my oil furnace with another oil furnace and am considering:

1. Carrier OVLAAB060154 Oil Furnace (ECM Motor)

2. Regal front Flue low boy LB-1000FFECMR with Riello burner

3 Thermo Pride - don't have the specifics yet.

4. Also have looked at Adams Manufacturing which is a condensing oil fired furnace with up to 95% AFUE. Not many distributors in my area (Massachusetts)

Does anyone have any comments on any of these? I have two zones. Variable speed motor seems important and 1-3 all will have that. I need a low boy due to space constraints. I believe that Adams needs # 1 fuel to be most efficient which would increase operating costs.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

how much does your electricity cost? Do you have central air? Are you considering replacing your central air?

Air source heatpumps are almost always cheaper to heat with than expensive oil.

I would keep the oil for the extra cold weather when a heatpump can't keep up or isn't as comfy.
