I am looking at buying a house with a oil burning steam boiler. We like the
house but have concerns about the age of the boiler. It looks original to
the house (1957) and wonder what would be the alternative to this type of
heat? If replacing the boiler with a natural gas more efficient model would
be as effective as everything else or finding a way to make this boiler a
water boiler. I am a plumber and am glad to find this group and would be
happy for some input as I don't have much dealings with boilers. Their kinda
hit and miss here in NC and I had been fortunate not to hit until now.
