riello burner

I am in the process of converting my oil heating system(hot water radiators)to natuiral gas with a Williamson GWC 175 175,000 btu gas furnace,I have also looked into installing a Riello 40 series gas burner in the existing Oil furnace at a much cheaper cost,Would that be a reliable choice?The efficiency on the williamson is 91%,The efficiency would be less on the riello but I am more concerned about potential problems and reliability.We would be keeping the radiators either way,?

First, with a boiler at 175,000 btu/hr, this must be a big house in a cold climate. That's a lot of heat.

The Riello is a very reliable piece of equipment. Certainly one of the best conversion burners on the market.

Is your current boiler approved for gas? How about the venting system? Is the chimney safe & sized properly for gas?
