conversion burners

ddenny Member Posts: 75

     I've seen oil to gas conversion burners on boilers but never on a forced warm air system. a customer is switching from oil to gas and is considering a conversion burner as an option. he has a rheem oil fired furnace that's only 6 years old. but I heard there are issues with putting a conversion burner in a furnace that are not a problem with installing one in a boiler. I'm going to do a heat load on the house but can see right away the current oil furnace is way oversized has anyone installed these in furnaces or is it not advisable?

    As long as the heat exchanger and combustion

    chamber are in good condition not a problem. You may want to check with the furnace manufacturer and get their okay just to be safe.

    What is the burner you will be using?
