Converting an oil steam furnace to gas
In August my Weil McLain SGO-3 steam, oil furnace will be 10 years old, 240,000 BTUs'. I got a price of $8400 inclu permits to install a Weil McLain EG-65 Steam gas furnace.... I thought that was high. Another plumber suggested just replacing the oil burner with a Weil McLain Model 80 Power Flame WCR burner. His price is about $4,000. 2 other plumbers refused to just replace the burner and said it was unsafe. I plan to move in the next few years. Is replacing the burner only unsafe? Seems to me that even with a lower efficiency, by just replacing the burner, I won't recover the full cost of a new furnace. What do you think?
