No operational problems at all.

I couldn't stomach the pricing around here when the demand goes up.

Previous winter '01, I spent about 1600.
Winter '02 close to 1800.
(I pay monthly - don't like the budget option)

When I get my aug 03 bill with budget projections (Which have been historically close for my use ) and I saw 2500. I hit the roof.

Since my B-I-L runs a hvac wholesale branch, we discussed the possibility of adding oil to the system.

I now have a Burnham LEDV-2 (direct vent) like my Burnham XG2005 PV and a pair of 275's sitting in my basement.
Local oil supplier give a dime per gallon break on 500 or more gallons, so a few loads will pay for the spare tank.

Just flip a few switches, close a few valves and I'm making heat either way.

Our local supplier is Columbia Gas of MD and they have give excellent repair service, etc. I just won't pay that much for heat!
