oil now .. gas later?

jpf321 Member Posts: 1,568
I'm looking for a possible recommendation for a boiler to replace my old beast .. I have a Fitzgibbons 402 (rated for 700sf of steam) .. currently oil fired for a 1-pipe steam system.

This summer, I'd like to replace the current boiler with a new steamer .. however, I'm looking for one that will accept OIL now .. with the potential to convert to GAS later .. do these things exist?

A neighbor of mine recently did an oil-->gas conversion on a 23yr old Peerless boiler. I don't have specifics better than that.

Thanks, jpf
