My daughter has a 15 year old house with an oil fired boiler. The unit
was the top of the line and has is operating at 80% efficiency
according to the latest tuneup She has a gas line into the house. In
our area oil is more than twice as expensive as natural gas per therm.
My options are to replace the oil burner with a Wayne conversion
burner and leave the boiler in tact, 3 hour job for myself. With this
option I can run the tank dry (she has about 250 gallons left) and
then replace the burner.
My other option is to replace the entire unit with a Triangle Tube
high efficiency boiler. To do this will require a 2 day operation and
I will probably have to do the replacement before the heating season
Any suggestions? BTW she used about 900 gallons last year.
