The Benefits of an Oil-to-Gas Conversion


Furnaces have hundreds of years of history. Over their history, they’ve burned many different types of fuel, starting with wood. A common type of furnace still used in Bergen County is the oil-burning model. This is a now outdated type of furnace, with most homes across the country changing either to natural gas furnaces or electric furnaces.

We offer oil to gas conversion in Bergen County, NJ because we know the immense benefits of making this change. Our team can install equipment in your existing furnace that allows it to be run on natural gas. You don’t have to make as drastic a change as you might think, and there are many benefits to converting to a natural gas furnace. Such as…

Lower Costs

Natural gas is usually a less expensive energy choice than heating oil (and often less expensive than electricity), so making the change to natural gas can help you significantly in lowering the cost to heat your home. The long-term savings on fuel costs and potential maintenance expenses can easily outweigh the upfront costs of making the change to a natural gas furnace.

Energy Efficiency

Natural gas burns more efficiently than oil, which means that a gas furnace will use less of its energy source to produce heat than an oil furnace. You’ll end up saving money in two ways: a lower cost fuel, and a more efficient use of that fuel. This efficiency also helps lower the furnace’s environmental impact.


Have you ever forgotten to schedule delivery for oil, or run out of oil at an inconvenient time? Then you’ll know this is a major drawback of using heating oil. With natural gas, the fuel is piped directly into your home so you don’t need any storage tanks or to schedule deliveries. A few less things to worry about during the winter! And, in many areas, natural gas is more readily available than heating oil, making it a more accessible option.

Cleaner Burning

Not only does cleaner burning make natural gas a more efficient energy source, it means there’s fewer emissions created when it’s burned. This helps to create better air quality and reduce environmental pollution.


Natural gas is lighter than air, so in the event of a leak, it tends to dissipate more quickly than heating oil, reducing the risk of fire or explosion.


Natural gas pipelines are durable and rarely affected by weather conditions. Oil delivery systems, on the other hand, can easily be put out of action during harsh winter storms or other emergencies.

Increased Home Value

Homebuyers are always looking for updated and energy-efficient appliances, as well as homes with environmentally friendly features. These potential buyers will be less interested in purchasing a home with an outdated heating system like an oil furnace.
