Personally Thermo Pride makes one of the best Oil Fired heaters on the market.
As far as sizing this needs to be done by a professional. You can click on the Bulls Eye above and do it yourself just to compare notes with your contractor. Its worth the $50.
For efficiency that depends on your area. If you mean New York then 80% and 10 Seer is fine but I would go higher on the heating end.
I also prefer Nat Gas to Oil.
Do your own Heat load/Loss calculation
Call 3 or 4 contractors and see what they say and post it here. This is a major investment. Take your time and do your homework. Good Luck.

Thermopride oil furnace.
If you know for sure your electric rate isn't going to go up int the next 10 years get a 10 seer.
NG, or oil, is a personal, and regional choice, check the current rates of both, your the one who will be paying the bill.
I don't recommend 10 anymore in South PA, 12 seer is better.
As far as size, like already said, load calc, will tell you.
