: Many plumbers like Holby mixing valve quality.
: You now have the lowest prices for making heat and hot water with the oil. You are getting 800 btu per penny. Natural gas at 90 cents per therm would give close to the same. Propane would give about 400 btu per penny.
: Heaters in other locations are just an additional expense. You might consider getting a Monitor 95%+ oil efficient boiler if you want an improvement.
: They can make hot water in a separate tank at the same time. You will not get a significant savings in hot water costs by going to a separate hot water tank.
: Bonehead is not a bonehead.
I never met a plumber that likes mixing valves, They work a short time then freeze into position. Works fine till one temperature changes.
