: So, how is the NG or LP more adverse then high sulphur #2, not to mention the stack?

: I'm with you as far as the adjustments with combustion test instruments, but newer more high efficiency oil boilers like my Burnham V84 have well designed finned exchangers that make it H.E. and with the proper gas orifice BTUH adjustment will far surpass $$$ vs. BTUH compared to oil these days at $4.50/gal!

: Are there any other cons installing Gas conversions on H.E. oil boilers other then warranty and lower BTUH burning values? Frankly, one season of oil will now cost as much as the new boiler installed just a year ago!

: Thanks

: : If your house needs less heat than the 125,000 btuh, then the gas burner can be one way to go, as you lose the radiant heat of an oil fire when you go to gas and the passages of the oil burner provides the heat exchange, not the chamber walls as well as in an oil burner.

: : Any oil burner is subject to sooting when it is not adjusted with combustion test instruments. The gas burner will have to be set up with combustion test instruments to get a good heat from it as well.

: : Be aware that the boiler is made for oil burning, so warrantees no longer apply to a conversion.
