Value of converting oil/steam to modcon gas?
Would love insights and experiences.
We're beginning an extensive home reno in a brick row house, and our plan to convert the existing oil/steam system to a gas, mod con system with indirect hot water and radiant heat on one floor. Our construction budget is going to be short and we're trying to determine which parts of the job to scratch off and the question is whether it's better to save 30-40% up front and do gas conversation with an 85% efficient steam boiler (and new chimney liner etc), or go the whole mile and go mod con etc. The latter route lets us relocate the utility room as well to reclaim space. I just don't know how to estimate or calculate monthly fuel savings and amortization for such a project. Any advice?
