I recently had a new Carrier Infinity 2 stage Heatpump installed which works great in both summer and winter. Variable speed air handler is quiet and comfort mode works great tempering the air temperature in winter.
My problem is the letter I recently recieved from PECO stating that my reduced rate for electric heating will be disappearing over the next couple of years.
I have gas available at the street now and was wondering if there is a gas fired boiler that is direct vented with PVC that I could use to heat hot water and also feed a coil that could be installed on top of air handler. Air handler is located in closet and I currently have a electric hot water heater in area under stairs behind wall where air handler.
Would a boiler with coil be an efficient dual fuel setup and does anyone make a boiler that could be direct vented out side of house?
