    Having a tankless coil in an oil fired boiler is like leaving your car in the driveway idling because you might go for a ride. An indirect is really the way to go.

    Ooooo, that's a good visual. Let's build a top 10.

    Like leaving your oven on, in the summer, because you might bake cookies...
    Which makes more sense to you?
    CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
    ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

    DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
    What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

    Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org, or RESNET, and find an auditor near you.
