Life expectancy for Beckett oil burner?

[OOPS! :eek: This should be in the HVAC/Heating forum, I did not see that originally.. please move! Thanks..]

Hi there!

I'm currently looking into purchasing an older home. While it has been meticulously maintained, the utilities are all fairly dated - including the oil burner and HW heater. The burner is 20yrs old, built by Beckett which I hear is a good name in the industry. I have a photo attached.

Any estimates on how long such a burner would last? And even typical cost to replace? I understand that efficiency is another issue, however if it will last many more years I could be happy with that.

Thanks for any help!
