Oil to Propane conversion??
I have oil heat hot air hydronic systems using a Buderus Boiler with a Becket burner. I also have 1 zone heating a sunroom using radiant heat and 1 zone hot water baseboard for my basement. The price of oil is getting ridiculous and they are talking $100 plus oil by next year. I know oil heats hotter than propane but the price jumps here in PA have been lower than oil and I can pre-buy propane easier than oil. Before the cost of heating my home surpasses my mortgage payment I have a few questions.
1. Does it pay to convert?
2. What would need to be done? Just change the burner?
3. What might be the cost?
4. How can I figure the gallons used from oil into propane?
5. Is there another alterative?
Thanks for any help.
