Retrofit gas power burners.

airhead Member Posts: 7
I have had several inquiries from residential customers looking to convert from oil and install power gas burners. I would like to hear peoples thoughts about this. I have not been able to get feedback if it is a worthwhile investment. Are there any reasons not to consider this. Thanks

    Have you installed gas conversion burners in the past? If not make sure you get some training before attempting to do a conversion

    Depending on the age of the equipment a gas power conversion burner can be a good choice to replace the oil burner. My present cut-off is 10 to 12 years old. Anything over that depends on equipment condition.

    I have over the years done over 3,000 conversion burner installs so I am obviously going to say it is a good investment.

    You will if properly set up be able to equal the combustion efficiency of the oil or even properly set up exceed the oil efficiency.

    I'm with Tim, though I haven't installed over 3,000 of these burners ;) Still, my results are as good as his.
