4. It might be cheaper to buy a smaller, Energy Star certified oil burner than to convert from oil heat to gas heat. Old oil boilers in older houses tend to be larger than necessary, and not as efficient as newer, greener oil boilers. According to EnergyStar.gov, new combustion technologies allow new oil boilers to get more heat from the fuel. New Energy Star oil boilers run in the $3000 - $6000 range. Hire an HVAC contractor to install it for you, and your investment is still less than converting from oil heat to gas heat.
Have you converted from oil heat to gas heat? Was it worth it? Please tell us.
