After experiencing the first half of one of the coldest winters in recent memory, my wife and I decided to retire the little Keystoker econo 65 and buy a boiler. Although the little econo served us well, we wanted to heat the whole house. We were using the econo, split unit heat pumps and our oil fired boiler when it got very cold. Because our house does not have a walk in basement and everything in and out goes down a narrow stairway or through a window we had to have a unit with a small footprint. And, our oil boiler was an Axeman Andersen that I serviced regularly, which naturally steered us toward the Leisure Line LL110. I cannot say enough about the exceptional customer service we received from Mat when we drove up to Berwick to pick up our unit. Not only did he answer all of my questions, I walked away with loads of good info and a truly in depth training. I felt like I was ready to be a service tech! After setting the boiler in place, installing the near piping and hooking up the zones, it was time to fire it up. Let me tell you, THIS BABY ROCKS!!! Our house became warm again! After years of scrimping on heat so as to not buy oil, we had a "heat soaked" house again. Even when our temps dipped down to 2 degrees and below, the LL110 purred right along on three buckets a day of buckwheat. I use 4 gallon laundry soap buckets that weigh in at about 32lbs each. Our house is right at 2000 square feet, built in the 30's and although I've replaced windows and insulated where we've remodeled, its still poorly insulated in rooms that we've not done yet. Everything written on this site about Leisure Line's legendary customer service is absolutely true. I had some struggles with idling(my fault) and I was only a phone call away from help. That kind of service is amazing. I will post pics soon.

Your story is all anyone can ask for when they decide to pursue an alternate form of heating their house.
