I recommend the megasteam and oil.

I wonder, and Maybe Glen from Burnham can shed some light on if the MST will be approved for a Carlin EZ-Gas in the near future.

If that is the case, I would say go with Oil, and you may be able to switch to gas if Oil stays super high for future years.

I personally prefer Oil because your supplier wants to keep you happy, and service is generally better. I also like the idea of buying a commodity that I can monitor myself.

If Glen is around,.. whats the scoop on approval for the Carlin EZ Gas

    With price of home heating oil at about $3.20 a gallon in the Boston area, I'm thinking gas is the cheaper fuel for steam heat. I know oil has been cheaper than gas for at least the last ten years.

    I'm in the market for a new steam boiler.

    If I decide to use oil, I would use the Burnham MegaSteam.

    If I decide to use gas it would be the Burnham gas fired boiler supplied by KeySpan on their special pricing offer for oil to gas conversion.

    What would you recommend, oil or gas fired?

    Thank you.

    I would second Norm's recommendation. Burnham Megasteam is the way to go!
