    Default Re: Can someone help me on the correct btu on my new oil burner?

    Thank you for your opinion. I was told that because the furnace is twice the size that it should be it short cycles instead of cycling a little longer. By short cycling it's not as energy efficient because the blast of the oil comes out quicker than at a slower more efficient pace. I appreciate your reply as I do everyone that is one this site. It's a great site to get differing opinions on.

    Tom:

    Sorry for the delay in response due to the holiday.

    I sent you a pm with boiler/burner info.

    On re-reading your previous posts, on the Crown boiler, you should maintain an aquastat temp range of 160 low and 180 high in the winter months---this can be reduced to 140 to 160 or 150 to 170 in off-season to save fuel.

    I wonder if you could post your request for window info in the "Doors & Windows" section---I know very little about what is the best window & I know you will get many responses at "Doors & Windows".
