swap gas for oil with replacement core?
First, let me say that this is my first post, and I have learned a great deal - while often being entertained as well - reading the Wall.
I have a 100 year old house with single pipe steam. In 2003 I had the original boiler replaced with a Burnham V8 boiler, which now leaks. Burnham will give me a new Megasteam core as a warranty replacement (I am responsible for labor, of course). But I want to switch to gas. If my plumber will do it, why wouldn't I want to install with a Carlin EZ gas burner? Burnham will only give me less than 2 year balance of warranty on the new core anyway... My alternatives are to take the discounted Burnham Independence boiler that the gas company will sell me as part of a conversion, which I am wary of, or buy an Smith gas boiler.
BTW, I need to hang a small hydronic zone off the boiler and also want to install an indirect water heater. Also, must move the vent from bad chimney to power vent. All doable?
