Oil / Gas Nozzle conversion - HELP!
Looking for some advice here -
My current setup is a weil Mclain 68 Oil - Steam boiler (model P-368-S) with a AFG (MP1192) oil burner. The unit is approx 12 yrs old and have had no issues so far - knock on wood.
As I said, I currently have oil - there is gas in the street and a quick call to the township and gas company confirmed all it would cost me to tie in would be $125 for the permit and of course a heating system that utilizes Gas. The township has approved paving the street in the spring time (5 mths from now) after which time they will not allow you to open the street for 5 years (unless there is an emergency). The catch to this whole thing is that I am planing on putting the house on the market in the spring....
So i'm looking for advice on whether its
A) feasible to swap out the nozzle, sacrifice the efficiency, and just get the gas to the house
B) swap out the furnace and install a gas (prob my last choice)
C) Let it ride how it is and roll the dice.
I am worried if I don't end up selling the house and something does happen to the boiler, since I cannot open the street - I will have no option but to get another oil unit.
I am on the fence with what makes the most sense - I dont want to be paying for a new heating system for someone else to enjoy.
