I'm in the process of purchasing a 1920s colonial with one pipe steam running off a recently installed Burham Megasteam (MST-396). The home has gas for cooking, but the previous owners stuck with oil when they replaced it last year. I am interested in converting to gas and am hoping I can replace just the burner.
I've read previous threads here and understand it is a reasonably good contender for conversion in terms of efficiency using a Carlin EZ-GAS, but that Burnham does not approve of it and it would invalidate the warranty. I'm not worried about the warranty (which I believe wouldn't transfer to me as the new homeowner anyways).
What I'm having trouble sorting out is, given that it is technically possible, is there actually anyone out there doing it? If so, can you comment on any challenges around code, homeowners insurance, etc? I've tried calling around to a few local pros (Lowell, Mass), including some from the contractor list here, but haven't found anyone willing to consider the job (although to be fair, that wasn't because of the Burnham concern, more that they didn't do burner conversion work for any manufacturers).
