Hi Rob, thanks for looking over these pictures. I have to think our house would work well with a VRV, as I believe there's adequate attic space, and even though it's two stories, we spent 95% of our time upstairs. We're still deciding if that's what we want to do, of course. I guess it really depends on the total cost of the system, as well as the cost per month to run it, which varies from house to house, I'm sure. I was just going to get a high efficiency propane furnace, but the challenge on PEI is finding someone to install one. That, and the warranties aren't all that comforting. We may still get a gas insert for our fireplace to help with the draft and the vaulted ceiling, and also just because they look great, but that's a whole other story.
In any case, the oil furnace just turned 18 years old, and we've almost got an empty tank, so now seems like a good time to be rid of it.
Let me know if you need pictures of anything else!
