Just one of the reasons why I didn't install a Webastor or Espar. I installed a hydronic diesel furnace.

And mine only gets run late at night controlled by a thermostat. It is also only used when it is below 45° at night. In Maine that is when most anchorages are empty(Oct, Nov, Dec, Apr, May). I never run it if I think it may bother someone although it is very quiet. I could make it even quieter with a muffler but it runs so cleanly that it is not needed.
