Can you mix kerosene with home heating oil without damage to furnace or contaminating home heating oil?
Yes you can; According to "FlashOffRoad" "Kerosene is routinely added to home heating oil, in large quantities. The furnace doesn't know, or care. The furnace oil pump does not have the same clearances (they are more crude, greater clearances, lower pressure...) and the kerosene won't hurt them. Most will (and often do) run on straight kerosene--here in NH, if the oil tank is outside, the mix will be either 50/50 or straight kerosene. Kerosene doesn't have the same heat values either, you won't get the same amount of power from a gallon of kerosene as from heating oil, or diesel fuel." See full article for more detail <http://flashoffroad.com/Diesel/DieselFuel/about_diesel_fuel.htm> Personally though, I wouldn't add more than 10 gallons per 275 tank full just to be safe.
Can home heating oil be substituted for kerosene in a kerosene heater if your furnace isn't working?
No way hosea! Is it possible if you have the right setup. It all depends on what type of furnace you are using Not without causing further problems - in mobile home furnaces especially. Using heating oil in a smaller system can result in clogged nozzles and filters causing the system to malfuntion or even worse OVERHEAT causing fire danger. Also straight kerosene won't gel in colder temperatures like heating oil will

Can a two-stage AC furnace be converted into a variable speed dc furnace without buying a new furnace?
With the information provided, I would say no, not for a novice. But it can be done. A new furnace would be cheaper than my fees to change it...pkazsr Elementshvac: Ask your heating contractor for a Green Ecm motor upgrade. We install quite a few of them. It essentially converts your furnace fan to a DC variable speed furnace. http://elementsheating.com
What are the Problems with an electric resistance furnace?
Every Electrical Furnace run by Electrical Current. Without electricity we can't use any type electric furnace. Sometechnical knowledge must be required for maintenance of electric furnace. Spare parts availability like Heating elements/resistance wire, Thermostat/Temperature controller (maybe Digital or Blind controller, Contactor, Insulators etc.
Distance of wall to furnace?
It depends on the furnace design. Some furnaces (and other heating devices) are designated "zero clearance", meaning they can be built into walls without danger of fire. Others require a certain clearance, as spelled out in the manufacturer's installation instructions. Let the manufacturer's instructions be your guide.

How does indirect water heater work?
Answer: An indirect water heater uses the home heating system (furnace/boiler) to supply domestic hot water on demand- without a tank. It does this by use of a separate or secondary coil or heat exchanger which is piped to the domestic water system installed in the home heating source in your home. Hence, the name Indirect.
