Welcome! Here are the website rules, as well as some tips for using this forum.
I have not put a gas conversion burner in since the late sixties early seventies when I was just getting out of high school. Recently gas became available to our rectory and we would like to convert to gas from oil. The furnace is a four year old Armstrong that we want to keep if practical. It fires at right around 1.) GPH and is in very good condition.
We used Gordon Piatt upshot burners back then and I believe they are no longer in business. I vaguely remember an Economite power burner that we used in oil boilers when a power burner was required.
1. Is this a feasible thing to do now days or should we wait for the furnace to die and replace it with a high efficiency gas furnace?
2. Does the fire box need to be changed if a conversion is practical?
3. Flue piping must also need to be change???
4. Any chimney issues to address?
Thanks in advance, I have been away from the heat side for over two years as I run a plumbing dept.
