In Reply to: New Gas System or Replace Oil Tank? posted by Adam on August 13, 2008 at 21:12:46:
While a previous-century steam system was nice in a previous-century house, the economics of running an antique are formidable. Don't be looking for $3 a gallon oil in this millennium. There are 24 billion barrels left in a nation that uses 6 billion a year.
So it is time to upgrade to a more efficient system than one that throws away 40% of the fuel.
Have a new gas hot water system installed in the house so you can have individual room control, (we don't really have to import natural gas) or suffer from a heat pump system as many neighbors are doing so the bills aren't high.
Of course, if money is never a problem, then just put in a new tank and oil boiler.
