In reply to oil vs. gas boilers by Erica on June 25th, 1998 06:25 PM [Go to top of thread]

Depends on where you live, which is cheaper to operate.
1/ Oil requires you to store the oil in a tank on your property. Its your responsiblity to maintain the tank and refill as necessary.
2/ Natural gas is piped in from a gas supplier and they are responsible for maintaining the pipe line to your meter as well as the meter. However they may charge you a one time charge for installing the meter.
3/ If You already have a oil fired boiler and it works good, then don't convert. Converting an existing boiler from oil to gas in my opinion is not wise. Does the converting person realy understand what he is doing? I've seen some bad convertion jobs.
4/ If your planing to replace it than I would switch to natural gas. Less hassel. Natural gas is safe,clean,& efficient. Except in high altitudes.
5/ Oil is not as clean,and requires more maintenance than gas.
Hope this helps
good luck,
