So, this may sound a little backwards, but I am trying to remove my oil furnace (which has broken several times in different ways in the three winters we have lived here, mostly due to sitting unused because we cant pay the mortgage and the oil bill at the same time-and is in fact broken and out of oil right this minute), and put a wood stove (VC Vigilant) in its place. I dont, however know the best way to remove the oil furnace, hopefully without doing too much damage as it is only a 6 year old furnace and I am hoping someone will want to buy it who is more handy with fixing furnaces than I am. My husband has suggested we just cut the pipes (and let the water spill out), but I am wary of doing that. I also could probably use some guidance on how to insall the stove into the chimney once the furnace is removed, although my husband has insalled a wood stove before. The biggest thing is getting that oil furnace out of the way. Thanks- Merr PS- we also have a pellet stove (which needs a new fan) that we will use as our primary heat as soon as we fix it, but right now we have no heat so any help would be appreciated.
