Oil to NG conversion

dwnobledwnoble Posts: 1Member
We have a 5 year old Buderus G115/5 boiler with a 5 year old Riello 40F5 burner.

Can this burner be converted to natural gas?

Will it be more or less efficient? We really want to change over to natural gas because of the crazy high prices of oil. People keep telling me that natural gas won't keep our home as warm, which doesn't make sense because it's heating water in our pipes. Please advise. Thank you.

    The Carlin EZ Gas burner will work well, since that boiler requires a positive chamber draft. A quick call to Carlin would be wise to confirm that.

    BTUHs are BTUHs. The boiler will work just the same, with equal or better efficiency.

    is good choice.... Gas will not heat as well? ??? Hmmm ... the rumors based on nonsense never ceases to amaze me.
