hi jim-i've read your posts regarding EK system2000 and i'm wondering if you might offer me some advice -i live in N NJ in a 2700'house that i bought in 2007-house has EK 2000 system with water tank(prev. owner installed).I want to convert to natural gas and have been told that i can convert the burner to a gas burner(w/o replacing the EK 2000 which has been good to me)-i've also read that EK2000 is really "meant" for oil- but since i already have the EK2000 i want to avoid scrapping it and buying an entire new gas boiler-How easy is conversion &how do i find a compnay with exp.doing it?all the EK dealers seem to be oil companies around NJ. How long is the job and what would you est. cost for conversion parts? If you were in my situation would use also do the conversion vs. an entire new system?is it 'true' that EK2000 works just as well with NG compared to oil?thanks in advance for any help you may be-you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the old house messaging.
