My Oil burner is about 50 years old and probably had its last season. Last winter when I needed the circulator pump replaced I had to contact 12 companies before I found someone who would service my oil burner. Now the oil burner is leaking. I believe from behind the plate that has the hot water leaving the burner. 4 of the 6 bolts are dripping water. When I replace the burner should I go with a natural gas or oil burner?
I don't currently have natural gas. But The houses across the street were built in the early 80's and they have natural gas. If the gas company will install a gas line to my house should I go with natural gas or stick with oil? Which is more economical?
I have propane stove so at least I could get rid of that ugly tank!!
Thanks for the information
