Q:

This heating season, I had a fireplace insert installed to provide most of our house heat. I would now like to minimize our boiler's oil  consumption, as it merely provides hot water (and serves as a back up heat source). I would be most appreciative for any/ all suggestions.

Thanks,

Dave

NOTE: We do not have a local, natural gas, source.
