    200,000 BTU oil furnace

    I am looking to replace a 200,000 BTU output horizontal oil furnace for a customer of mine. The only brand I have been able to locate is a Cox furnace. Can anyone think of another brand in that BTU range?

    Do they really need one that large or are you going by what is there?

    Run a Manual J heat loss and put in the correct size furnace.

    Chances are the furnace is oversized.
    How tall are you Private???!!!!

    Bard has 200,000+ in horizontal units.
    And up to 175,000 in up and down flow.

    As above, make sure that is what size you need. As we all know, oil isn't cheap anymore.

    This is in a large industrial garage, with metal walls, metal roof, and concrete floor. There is no insulation at all. In the Philadlphia area, so yes..I need a large furnace.

    Try Adams AOS series or Ducane LHR series. When it comes to hanging units, check dimensions carefully. They can be a pain to do a lot of new duct work and make sure the smoke pipe is on the same side.

    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.
