Jlamb Member Posts: 14
Can anyone tell me if there would be an issue converting a pensotti direct vent oil boiler about 2 years old to natural gas?

    Unless there is a kit from Pensotti that is certified for the boiler, you will have a liability issue. If we replace a burner on a boiler here, we are required to get the boiler re-certified.

    That Pensotti

    probably has a Riello burner on it. I'd check with Riello- they now market a gas conversion burner.
